HOW IT LOOKS/FEELS:
It may technically be a pencil, but the creamy texture makes this formula feel like a gel, especially given how smoothly and effortlessly it glides on.
WHY WE LIKE IT:
To ensure that this long-lasting pencil lived up to its waterproof, tearproof, smudgeproof claims, we put it to the ultimate test: Applying it on our waterline. On a 95-degree summer day. At a wedding (we’ve never made it through any nuptials without waterworks). The result? A perfectly crisp line that looked just as good at the end of the night as it did at the beginning (the same can’t be said for the rest of our makeup). Unlike traditional pencils, this one contains a dry oil to lock in the color and block out any moisture. (If anything, it was almost too hard to take off—we used a hefty dose of eye-makeup remover both before we went to bed and the next morning.) The superslick application also sets this liner apart. Plus, the expansive range of 20 shades—all vibrant and intensely pigmented—makes it easy to find the right hue for you.
