The Surprising Eyeliner That Actually Works

by Stephanie Montes

Any day of the week you can find me wearing a cat eye, so needless to say, I go through a lot of liquid eyeliner. When it comes time to buy a new one, I base my decision on the applicator—if it makes the process as easy as possible, I’m sold. I’m always on the go (I’ve even been known to apply my makeup while stopped at a red light in traffic), so I can’t waste time with products that make creating the already difficult-to-master cat eye even harder. Luckily for me, I just discovered a new and totally innovative product that makes my life so much easier. If you can just get past how weird it looks and try it for yourself, you’ll be glad you did. I am.

Outside The Lines

The Nudestix Rock N' Roll Easy Eyeliner Ink brush is quite the interesting invention—in fact, it's not a brush at all. The brand, known for reinventing beauty products to make application on the go easier than ever, designed the liner tool sans brushes and bristles. If you can imagine, it looks like the tiniest pizza cutter on the planet and it makes creating a cat eye surprisingly simple.

Because most eyeliner tips are flexible, they can bend when you least expect it, leaving your cat eye uneven. The Rock N' Roll applicator makes it virtually impossible to create anything but a straight line. It rolls in two directions (forward and backward) and doesn't pivot from side to side, which means all you have to do is point and glide. I promise it won't go anywhere else.
