Love, love LOOOOVE this eyeliner!  I buy mine from Sephora overseas - it's an easy-application, waterproof liquid liner that stays on all day and night.

What it does (Sephora Website):

This easy-glide, quick-dry precision liner stays in place until you say when—no smudges, feathering, or running. The thin, marker-like tip is easy to use, even for the beauty beginner, and delivers any look—from a thin line to a bold, dramatic stroke. It goes on smoothly without skipping, smudging, or pulling, and lasts all day.

Serious staying power, jet-black, and glides on easily and quickly.  You can get varying thickness too for that perfect straight line to a thick dramatic cat eye look. Can't go wrong with this purchase ladies! :)
