Best Bet: Hourglass Cosmetics Script Liquid Liner

Liquid eyeliner can be tricky to apply and maintain over the course of a long night without looking like Adam Lambert gone awry. Hourglass Cosmetics’ new Script liner combines the wieldy feel of a pencil with the bold, glossy look of liquid liners. Thinner than other pen eyeliners and a vast improvement over brush applicators, the super-fine .55mm tip allows for straight, precise lines. The formula itself is waterproof, so it won’t smear or fade away over the course of the day — even in sweaty summer weather.

Hourglass Cosmetics Script Precision Liquid Liner, $32 at Sephora or online.
