Basic black eyeliner is a must have in every girls make up kit. It never goes out of style and it is essential to create most makeup looks. Black eyeliner can be worn during the daytime or evening because it is so versatile. We've tested tons of eyeliners from high end to drugstore and we've come up with an eyeliner that is affordable and comparable to some high end brands. It doesn't smudge after it is set yet it is perfect to create a smokey eye. It has pretty good pigment so your eyes look perfectly defined. Revlon's Color Stay Eyeliner meets all of the above. This made in Italy (drugstore brand made in Italy!? Crazy!) mascara lasts through a whole day. It is amazing to define the outer V of your eyes because it stays put and doesn't crease. It is a self sharpening eyeliner (the sharpener is at the end of the tube, just pull it out and set it on top of the exposed eyeliner end then twist either the eyeliner or the sharpener to make a point). We really suggest this mascara if you are looking a inexpensive good quality eyeliner.
