Our look always used to include liquid eyeliner. But too many long days at the office (where we were left feeling like our eye makeup had gotten “crunchy”) have now made liquid eyeliner an occasional beauty product, usually for days where we want to set our makeup at the beginning of the day and have it stay in exactly the same place until we take it off because there is no time to fuss with it. Our favorite eyeliner that we’ve found so far is Bobbi Brown’s long-wearing gel eyeliner. The gel is easy to apply with the brush, and easy to blend into the lashes; we also like the variety of colors it comes in (we actually like the black/plum). And, unlike our daily kohl pencil, this product stays put — it will be in exactly the same place until you remove it with your eyemakeup remover. (A brief warning: the product does tend to dry out, so be sure to keep the top on tight — our “trick” for extending the dried out product (which we’re hoping our eye doctor wouldn’t frown upon too much) is to put some eyemakeup remover lotion on our finger, then dip the applicator brush in the lotion, and then in the pot of ink gel.) It’s $21 at Nordstrom (also available at Saks and Amazon). Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner
