One reason I don’t subscribe to the if-you-haven’t-worn-it-in-a-year-get-rid-of-it rule of closet editing is that you never know when some neglected piece in your closet—the kind you loved when you purchased, but then never knew quite how to pull off—comes off the bench and reveals itself to be a star. That is unquestionably the case with beauty products too, like this eyeliner—which I acquired a while back, then never used much because I prefer a pencil liner to a brush one, just because it’s less easy to screw up. But the other day, I tried it—just to see if I could work with the brush before tossing it—and guys, this stuff is a miracle. First off, it’s waterproof, so it doesn’t budge for hours. And second, the brush is both easier than I thought it would be, and tons more precise than a pencil.
