Here's the Best White Eyeliner

One of the greatest joys in life is finding a four-dollar product in the drug store that puts higher end versions to shame. Just kidding, it’s becoming a mother. Just kidding, it’s fucking a rapper. Just kidding, it’s making enough money to buy a vacation home and then going there for extended periods of time, alone. Yep, that’s it.


Anyway, this eyeliner from Prestige is awesome. If you’re brave, you could try putting it on your upper eyelids for a real ‘90s look, I guess, but the only thing I do with mine is line my lower waterline. This technique creates the illusion of larger peepers by expanding the whites of your eyes. What makes this particular white special is its opacity: it goes on BRIGHT WHITE, highly pigmented, and it’s kind of thick so it has real staying power. I’ve cried through this stuff at a Lady Gaga concert and it stayed put. (I wasn’t crying because of Lady Gaga, I was just sad, but at a Lady Gaga concert no one takes their eyes off Lady Gaga so it’s a good place to cry if you have to cry in public.)

Don’t poke your eyes out!

Still can’t fully but into the white or light cream liner. I’m just too set in my as-black-as-my-soul liner to go fully back. The only white pencil I own is NYX’s Milk, but I like to use that as a base for bright colors or a highlight (yes, I AM pale enough to use a blended white matte pencil as a highlight believably.)

I did pick up the lavender Colourpop liner (Cry Baby) last week, & I like that. I’ve only worn it in the waterline once, but it wasn’t quite as stark & it brightened nicely. I’m really liking just drawing it under my waterline or around the inner tear duct.
