Liquid eye liners are a quick way to create an instantly dramatic effect. You can combine them with pale shadows for a 50s inspired look, add as a finishing touch for smokey eyes, or draw on bat wings for a seductive looking cat-eye. You can't really go wrong with the look of liquid liner, and these new "pens" make using them seem effortless.

It's got a uniquely shaped foam tip that is super soft yet firm enough to ensure a definitive line that won't skip. (Don't you hate it when that happens?)
