Check out this bad boy: Sephora’s got a waterproof retractable eye pencil that comes with a smudge sponge on one side AND a small sharpener to keep the tip of your pencil as sharp as you like. Best part—you get about a minute to work with the creamy formula, (it glides so easily on the eyes), making it as precise or as soft as you want, and then it sets and stays! You can even use it as a waterproof shadow, smudging it over the lid—perfect for summer, when heat usually melts make-up right off. At only $12, this fabulous liner, which comes in seven colors—black, brown, silver, gold, light blue, plum, green, and olive—is a steal!
I don’t know about you, ladies, but I sweat an awful lot during the summer. With sweating, comes runny eyeliner and let me tell you, no one thinks that’s cute. The good news, however, is that I’ve found a waterproof gel eyeliner that stays in place no matter how much I glisten—Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof Liner ($22) comes in black, brown, bronze, blue and now purple. A good alternative to both liquid and pencil, this gel can give you the precision of liquid liners without the running or the soft look of pencil liners without the smudging. You do need a brush to use with it though; I like an angled eyeliner brush, but a pointed one works well, too. Once you’ve applied it, you have a minute or two to soften the edge if you’d like, but once it sets, it stays!
