    I don't think I'm alone when I say the words "winged eyeliner" send me into full panic overdrive. If you want to know what my mornings look when it's time to do my eyeliner, it's a lot like this:


    ^^ And all the people running are really just my 1030438 attempts to make a nice cat eye. Am I yelling the whole time? ....Yes.

    LUCKILY now we can cheat thanks to this Vogue Effects double-sided eyeliner ($12.99 on Amazon) with an actual ~wing stamp~ to do all the hard work for us.


    Promising review: "It really is smudge-proof! Living in Texas in the 100+ degree weather, you definitely need something that’s not going to be running down your face a couple minutes after going outside. This is it! It's super easy to use and doesn't irritate my eyes like other eyeliners. I love it and will repurchase when I need to." —Lacey

    To be perfectly clear, it has two sides: one that has a stamp to MAKE. THE. WINGS. FOR. US — !!!!!!!!!! and another side to draw a steady, smudge-proof line that's extremely hard to mess up thanks to its thick felt tip. It's even available in three sizes so you can choose the thickness of your wings!

    NO I CAN NOT BELIEVE, JONATHAN! The sizes are: 8mm, 10mm, and 12mm. They're all the same price, too! UNREAL. AND it comes as a two-pack! Twice. As. Nice.

    Applying it looks a lot like this! This is from a review about an eyeliner that's now forever sold out (RIP), but it did the same darn thing. OBSERVE:

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying this isn't my first cat eye rodeo. I've tried the taping method, normal liquid liner, plastic winged stamping devices, stencils, all of it! So when I saw this I thought, meh, why not give it a shot. Well, this gem arrived and I immediately had to try it out, all while laughing at how terrible this would probably turn out....but to my surprise I put the left cat eye on first and it was perfect. I thought this was a fluke and did the right eye...again, it came out clean and perfect! I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE BEEN ABLE TO DO A CAT EYE IN UNDER 10 MINUTES, LET ALONE THE TWO MINUTES THIS TOOK TO DO! There were no sloppy streaks that I had to touch up or anything you would expect. Just a clean crisp line. I can now do a cat eye EVERY day and look/feel like a badass. Everyone can think I spend hours doing my makeup in the morning." —LadyMeow

    Now lets see this bb live in action — just👏 look👏 at👏 that👏 precision! In just a stamp! BE STILL, MY HEART.

    "I just want to make my morning routine as easy as possible. I love winged liner, but I don’t have the steady hand for it without mistakes. This makes the perfect and consistent wing every time. I love it!." —Julie B

    But what's even better is that it gives a whole new meaning to waterproof. Seriously, Neptune himself could use this without worry of smearing.

    "I have very hooded eyes and this still works great! Make sure you give extra time to dry. It’s humid and 85 degrees today and I went to a party, spent time outside, and sweated, and this eyeliner didn’t budge! Also, I love how I can do cat eyes for the first time in my life! I’m not great at doing makeup, but this made it easy! I'm very satisfied!" —hklep

    Can somebody please confirm or deny if this is Ariana Grande?! I MEAN. CELEB-LEVEL WINGS, PEOPLE. Which is great, because I seem to have lost my personal makeup artist.

    "If you thought achieving the perfect winged look was impossible you should order this product. I was hesitant at first — afraid to waste money on another beauty gimmick, but this liner stamp idea is life changing. People always told me I just need to practice and eventually I could master a winged eye. Well I practiced and no. My previous attempts at winged liner always ended with me belittling myself for not being good enough, tears of frustration, eventually taking it all off, and vowing to only stick to what I know. I'd given up, content to just keep my eyeliner within the lines for the rest of my life. But then I bought this. Don't get me wrong, you still need a little practice to line up your points evenly, but this product is a game changer! I am now part of the in-crowd of girls walking around with the perfect cat eye! I feel unstoppable. It even motivated me to write my first Amazon review!" —Cait E

    Tons of people with hooded, oily lids also swear by this!!! This. Does. Not. Budge. For. Anything. *Especially* humidity — if anything hot weather is the one who should be afraid. How you say? Its formula of candelilla and carnauba wax dries quickly to hold on all darn day!

    "I am so happy with this eyeliner! The stamps takes a little practice, but are fairly easy to use. I have deep-set and hooded eyes so it took a few tries to figure out the best way to angle the stamp for my eye shape. Once I got that down, using the stamps became a breeze. The liner lasts all day and doesn't budge or smudge. I bought this on a whim and I am so glad that I did. It's made my makeup routine significantly easier and faster. It's definitely comparable to other, more expensive, brands." —Kathryn P

    Does it pass the glasses test (i.e. can you see your makeup even when wearing frames)? You sure can! These wings are thick, thick, thick if you choose the larger size!

    "I didn’t have high expectations even though other reviews were good. I wear winged liner every day so I really didn’t need this product, as I have mastered the winged liner look. However, I do still love this stamp because it saves me time in the morning. I use the stamp and pen, but then go over the wing and liner with my favorite black gel eyeliner to make it super black, the way I like my liner to be be." —liny1020

    Look how easy it is to do a more ~dramatic~ look! No tears, makeup wipes, or Youtube tutorials required. Just a flick of your wrist, I PROMISE.

    "I love this so much. I was nervous the first time I wore it so I decided to walk to my friends house because it’d just be us two if it sucked. No biggie. Mind you it’s Houston in the summer, so it's 98 degrees and humid. I’m almost to her house and it starts pouring rain. I start running, run a few blocks, and I make it. I’m expecting to look like a raccoon. I did not. It was all still the way it was when I left! I was shocked! Five stars for sure! Plus it makes it so easy to do a cute little wing which I’m horrible at on my own. This invention is genius!" —KNB

    Plus, reviewers say the eyeliner is super opaque, applies smoothly, and blacker than black — which is exactly how most of us want liquid liner to be.

    "Amazing! Just stamp and draw your eyeliner to meet the start of the wing. The eyeliner is nice and black, not too shiny, very smooth, and doesn't skid over eyelid. It's definitely long-lasting, I have to use eye makeup remover to remove. I've found that angling the stamp lower, more horizontally so that it starts at the outer-corner of my eyes work perfectly every time (I have large round eyes)." —Nena

    This bb will stay on ALL. DAY. Which is so important, because we have perfect cat eyes to show off. Commence 1,000-second Insta story.

    "I purchased this on a whim and was surprised by the results. I practiced on the back of my hand to get the hang of it and once I was comfortable I went for it. The wings stamped on easily on both sides and I connected it with the pen side. Super easy. Now I have oily skin and I was doubtful it would stay on, but I was delighted that it stayed on all day! Even the practice stamping I did on my hand stayed on, even after a couple of hand washing. But I was able to easily remove the liner with micellar water. I will definitely be purchasing again." —arlene b

    Tl;dr: if you get super frustrated by doing your own cat eyes and want an eyeliner that stays on no matter WHAT, then you just found your soulmate. I'm so happy for you two!

    "I loved the product. I usually take 15 mins to do my eyeliner perfectly for my dance recitals which include cleaning and re-doing multiple times. But with this eyeliner, I took only five mins to do it in a single go. It lasted really long even in burning hot weather. It looked so beautiful even from a long distance. I loved the product. It's a must-have for all those who love eye makeup." —rasu
