Meet my favorite eyeliner of late: Elizabeth Arden's Smoky Eyes Powder Pencil in Black Violet (say that five times fast). Despite its sultry coloring, this little baby can take you from day to night.
I smudge it on my lashline for daytime wear. The creamy pencil glides on and dries to a powdery finish which is incredibly easy to smudge. For after-hours wear, I trace along the waterline. Personally for me it wears more violet tone than black but for some it tends to wear more black. I think it's a nice alternative to the traditional black pencil and adds a little fun with its inky purple hue.
I rub my eyes a lot, A LOT, and this liner sticks around. It also managed to take me through an evening out in 100+ degree weather and maximum humidity. That's a definite win in my book.
