WEEKLY MUST-HAVE: Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner

With cat eyes being all the rage, it's nice to have an effortless, smudge-proof, water-proof liquid liner in that beauty arsenal. Hourglass' Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner basically does the job for you. And the Ebony is seriously black -- not that mistaken identity brown/ black that so many liquid liners tend to be (it does however also come in Cognac, a dark brown shade, and Indigo, a navy blue hue).

The liner is in felt tip pen form as opposed to a thin bristled applicator -- which I happen to prefer -- and glides on so smoothly, it's literally just a matter of following the natural curves and shape of your lashline. You can choose to make the line thin or apply a few extra coats for a thicker, Angelina Jolie type line. I go back and forth, thin for day, thicker and more dramatic for night.

A word (or several...) from the company:
"Calligraphy Liquid Liner is formulated with Pearl Protein and a botanical blend of Chamomile, Aloe, Rosemary, and Perilla extract to condition and nourish the eyes."
The liner is formulated without Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances and Phthalates.

*TIP* When applying liquid liner remember to only use on top lashes. If you choose to use a liner on bottom lashes as well, make sure that it is pencil or shadow. Liquid will smear, despite how smudge proof it professes itself to be.

PRICE TAG: $32.00
