“Never ask a girl wearing liquid eyeliner why they are late.”
I have always had a complicated relationship with liquid eyeliner. I first dabbled with this fickle beauty product in high school. The Hills was in its full glory, and I, like every other girl my age, was desperately trying to emulate Lauren Conrad’s every move. I was lured in by the perfectly symmetrical cat-eyed swipes of liner across her lids, and thought, “That couldn’t be too hard.” I had no idea how wrong I could be. Name a trick and I tried it, but to no avail. (I even used Scotch tape as a line guide. Friendly advice: If you value your skin, do not attempt.) I tried again off and on over the years, but I could never seem to find the right brand or technique. This wasn’t the first time LC had bested me; I also had to resign myself to the fact that I would never be able to pull off scarf headbands or side bangs.
On my last trip to my local Target Beauty Concierge, I was on the hunt for a new fall eye palette and happened to mention my plight. She suggested I try out Pixi’s Cat Eye Ink—and talk about a game changer. The usual liquid eyeliner pen basically has a flimsy paintbrush on the end, but this Pixi version has a slanted tip that is basically like a sturdy felt marker, which makes it SO much easier to get a precise cat eye!
