When it comes to eyeliners, my philosophy is "go waterproof or go home." I don't even bother with the ones that don't make that claim—so I tend to reach for the same tried-and-true liners in my collection time and time again.
Normally it would run you US$20.00/C$26.00 a pop for one of these puppies, but for the holiday season they're selling this limited-edition set where you get five—FIVE!—for just US$34.00/C$39.00. And not because they're miniatures. These are full-sized eyeliners, yo. Talk about a mega beauty bargain.
The shades are really good ones, too. You get classic black (Stingray), brown (Lionfish) and Navy; they've also included a burgundy that you could pretty much use as a neutral (Aubergine ) and Emerald for a fun hit of green.
What I love about these liners is that they glide on so well—very creamy with no tugging—and they have deep pigment that really doesn't budge. The "smudge" in the name is a little deceiving; you don't necessarily have to smudge them unless that's the look you're going for. Bonus: the built-in sharpener so you don't have to DIY.
