Whether you’re spending the summer at the beach, by the pool, or simply trying to survive walking down the New York City sidewalks in 100-degree heat (seriously—temps are supposed to hit 100 this weekend), one thing is for sure: You need makeup that’s going to stand up to water and heat… and a whole lot of it, for extended periods of time.
We’ve got you covered on the best foundation and mascara to get the job done, and thanks to Amazon (and 5,000+ dedicated reviewers) we now have an eyeliner to add to the list: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Waterproof Eyeliner ($22). The felt-tipped pen is formulated to help you draw the perfect straight line, which not only won’t smudge when you put it on, but will also stand up to any and all water and sweat that comes into its path at any point during the day. It comes in two different sizes—original and micro-tip—which you can use based on how thick of a line you want to create and what type of look you’re going for. If you’re not a black liner person, there are 13 other shades that will amp up your eyes, including grey, dark green, blue, white, and brown.
“This waterproof liquid eyeliner is the best I’ve ever used,” wrote one reviewer on Amazon, among a sea of others echoing the same sentiment. “Because the micro-tip is so fine, you’re less likely to make big mistakes, and it lasts for over 12 hours straight without fading, flaking or smearing.” Other testimonials call out the fact that it’s easy to apply, precise, and the only liner that they ever want to use, ever. With all of that in mind, it’s no surprise that the liner is the number one best-seller out of every eyeliner on all of Amazon. NBD.
As someone who is utterly useless at putting liner on her top lid (like, it’s embarrassing… especially considering I’m a beauty editor), this is the only pen in history that’s actually made my attempt at a cat-eye look socially acceptable enough to step out into the world in. And that’s saying something.
