A month or so ago, I came across Lord & Berry Smudgeproof Waterproof Eyeliners (S$22.90). Impressed with their budgeproof quality, I ended up with staple colours #701 In the Black and #703 Black/Brown.
Made in Italy, these pencils have a tenacity that rivals most waterproof pencils but the formula is such that flaking occurs when liner is applied over powder and vice versa. Like waterproof pencils such as the Gosh ones, they glide on well. However, they have a tendency to flake on powdered eyes, especially when layered more than once.
The best way to wear these is alone, over bare skin or on slightly emollient lids created by base makeup or a creamy waterproof eyeshadow such as a MAC Paint or Benefit Creaseless Cream. They will set nicely over these products. These pencils work well on the lower lash lines and inner rims too but are best for tightlining – they truly last on the upper rims!
