There are plain old eye pencils ... and there’s the new breed of supersoft, ultra smudgable eye pencils that have been increasingly cropping up on beauty counters. These supple, easy-to-use liners have the precision of traditional sticks and the smudge-ability of a powder.
The ultra-smudgeable Stila Kajal Eye Liner comes in heavily-pigmented
neutrals that are perfect for everyday wear. We’re particularly fond of
the brownish-gray Smoky Quartz shade. $18; stilacosmetics.com.
