Fine Lines: Two New Liners We Love

By Wendy Rodewald-Sulz / May 10, 2011


The feline flick has been shorthand for sexy throughout history, as eternal babes from Cleopatra to Sophia Loren to Gwen Stefani have all made the cat eye their signature. But that's not to say the winged liner look hasn't evolved. To the contrary; two new releases are taking liquid liner to new heights of innovation.

Those who've dreamt of swimming or showering with full cat eye intact (and why not?) will appreciate Make Up For Ever's new waterproof Aqua Liner. Our back-of-hand test scribbles refused to budge - through soaping, showering and scrubbing alike. The product's press release explains that it's "formulated with acrylic copolymer, a hydrophobic macromolecule that forms a flexible film to lock water out." All we know is the stuff seriously lasts. All 15 shades are available at Sephora ($23 each).

If precision is your thing, the 0.5 millimeter tip on Hourglass Cosmetics' new pen should hit the mark nicely. The Script Precision Liquid Liner ($32) boasts the skinniest brush we've seen, all the better to dot along the lash line. The micro-fine liner comes in classic black - which is, as far as Sophia and we are concerned, the only color you'll need.
