You probably don't know who I am, but you should trust me on the subject of liquid eyeliner because I have been wearing it daily since I was, like, a zygote.
This is me as a high school senior serving you crispy emo hair and what had become my ~signature~ smokey eye.
I don't take my dog out for so much as a shit without making sure my liner is snatched first.
So suffice it to say, I know eyeliner by now. And i've tried just about every black liquid liner under the sun, from drugstore to designer.
Here are some things I did that my $3.99 Wet N' Wild waterproof eyeliner has courageously withstood, remaining opaque, sharp, non-greasy, and laid:
✔️ Swam in the ocean
✔️ Worked out at the gym
✔️ Threw up at the movies
✔️ Passed out face-first into bed/the couch/a bathroom rug
✔️ Cried during just about every animated movie I've seen as an adult
✔️ Got kicked in the face in mosh pits
✔️ Mistakenly ate a clump of wasabi thinking it was avocado
✔️ Bi-monthly existential crises
