The new ones go on effortlessly, last all day and can be thoroughly cleaned off in three to five seconds, no matter what remover you use. Because we all want makeup that’s as easy to take off as it is to put on our faces. - LY

After a long day, the last thing you want is to spend more time removing your makeup than you did putting it on. No one wants to deal with a smudging, clumping mess on her skin. We get it, and beauty brands have taken note too. What’s so good about these new long-wearing eyeliners? They don’t smudge, and they show only very minimal fading at the end of the day. The best part: Removing them is three times faster than before. Skin is clean and stain-free, so you can fall into bed faster.
No worries about wrinkles here. The gentle yet firm brush tip doesn’t drag against your skin.
The brush on the right end is thicker for bolder lines; the one on the left is for finer lines.
Dries so quickly it doesn’t get a chance to stain your eyelids.
Although many cleansers work on these easilycleanedoff eyeliners, micellar water works best. We know because we tested a slew of removers on them. Micellar water stands out because it’s super gentle on skin but really tough on makeup. One soaked cotton pad is all you need for each eye. Press, hold for a few seconds, wipe off. Goodbye, day-old eyeliner.
