Go Buy Now: L'Oreal Super Slim Liner by Infallible

Once you’ve mastered the art of drawing the perfect cat eye with liquid liner, you’re faced with a new problem: finding one black enough to work the first time around. Traditionally, prestige formulas lay claim to the blackest black, but there’s a new kid on the block proving that a higher price tag doesn’t mean stronger pigment: L’Oreal’s Super Slim Liner by Infallible ($9).

The 12-hour formula, which really does last all day long, dries immediately, eliminating pesky transfer to the upper lid. And the .4mm felt-tipped brush is so slim and flexible that you can use it along the lower lashline—or even on your waterline—to add volume to your lashes. It’s so thin and easy to use that you might make it through the whole process without dipping a Q-tip in makeup remover—and that’s a true feat!
