Tis a glorious day when you stumble upon a holy grail beauty product. I randomly picked up the L.A. Colors Professional Series Liquid Eyeliner ($1.99) at the drugstore recently + wing game CHANGED.
I have oily eyelids, so I typically skip eyeliner unless I’m doing a smokey eye at night (hides the inevitable darkness that comes from the smearing) but this eyeliner has given me back freedom! It has a super thin applicator brush that’s slightly stiff so you have a lot of control, and it’s long-wearing and water resistant; once it dries completely, it stays put and doesn’t transfer (I’ve been wearing it 12 hours as I type this). It’s also an inky, incredibly dark black, so it’s intense once the rest of your makeup is done.
Coincidentally, right after I purchased it I watched a tutorial on how to apply winged liner for hooded eyes (so that you can get the full winged effect from all angles), and those tips coupled with this eyeliner have gotten me some major compliments from both friends + strangers. It’s amazing the looks you can create when you (finally!) have the right product!
