This Smudge-Proof Eyeliner Is Our Editor's Summer Beauty Essential

For someone who isn’t good at applying eyeliner, this is a godsend.

Drawing eyeliner has never been my forte. Since my shaky right hand can never seem to get along well with liquid eyeliners, I’ve always relied on more forgiving glide-on pencils like the Urban Decay one or Marc Jacobs Beauty‘s variant. Both of these products have been my go-to eyeliners for quite some time, but it wasn’t until I tried using Shiseido‘s MicroLiner Ink recently that I discovered my ultimate favorite. Here’s why this week’s “Editor’s Pick” has earned itself a place in my makeup bag.

WHAT IS IT: Shiseido MicroLiner Ink in “Black”

WHY IT’S WORTH THE HYPE: Compared to other eyeliners I’ve ever worn, Shiseido’s MicroLiner Ink has a much finer tip that allows for easy drawing of precisely thin lines on the eyelids. Infused with high-impact pigments, the eyeliner leaves a saturated, matte hue on the skin that literally lasts all day, even in the sizzling hot summer weather. This product is also created with what the Japanese beauty brand describes as “thermo-sensory technology” — it allows the formula to transform from solid to liquid upon contact with the skin, and creates a water-resistant film that lasts up to 24 hours.

Not only am I pleased with how seamlessly the eyeliner glides across the eyes, but I am also always impressed to see barely there or absolutely no racoon-ish smudges beneath my lower lash line every time I look into the mirror. If you’re in the market for a foolproof eyeliner, I’d highly recommend adding this to your beauty routine.

WHERE YOU CAN FIND IT: Available in five different colors, the eyeliner can be purchased at Sephora for $22 USD.
