For years, I've relied on the standard (and slightly retro) kohl eyeliner for all my eye makeup needs. But lately, I've found that it's tough to line the upper lid with the kohl pencil and it tends to bleed a bit under my eyes. On a whim, I picked up this eyeliner. It's still a pencil – not a liquid pen, which I don't care for much—but it's got a nice, fine point and a smudger to boot. I was pleased with how easy it was to use, even on my upper lids, and it stayed put all day. I even had a "contact mishap" and after much eye watering, my liner was still in place. Sold!
