I am a huge fan of a budge-proof, tight line right at the lashes. And, in my opinion, a liquid pen is the best way to achieve one. I am currently obsessed with the new NARS version that hit shelves on August 1st. The pen is super-fine for total control. And the waterproof formula has great staying power. The inky colors are richly pigmented for the perfect line, whatever shape or size.
I like taking the pen, parallel to my eyes, and laying down the end along my lash line. I move from inner corner to outer and the result is a thin, even line. It makes lashes look longer and is a neat, natural effect. Your basic facewash isn’t going to do much for this liner. Sometimes (don’t tell) I just wash my face and leave the liner on. It doesn’t even smudge and I am ready for brunch in the AM. When I am feeling more virtuous, the Almay eye makeup remover gets the pigment off in a jiff.
I am loving the classic black, Carpates, but NARS Eyeliner Stylo also comes in three other shades:
- Nuku Hiva – Brown
- Atlantic – Navy
- Koala – Grey
