Tattooed eyeliner is like marriage - a good long-term promise for some, but a bit too permanent for others.
Which might make Urban Decay's Ink for Eyes the equivalent of a friend with benefits. The new cream eyeliner is everything you want in a liner - precise, long-lasting, and easy-to-use - sans commitment. Thanks to Nylon 12 (the ingredient, not the magazine), the formula stays put all day long, even if you're rubbing your eyes the morning after a wild night. And because each case comes with a double sided applicator (one part angled line brush, one part smudger), you can go from cat eyes to smokey eyes in one night.
The six shades, ranging from black to a sparkly iridescent white, are surprisingly neutral for Urban Decay. But the biggest shocker might be how easy it is to get a perfect liner application; unlike liquid formulas, which are prone to smear, and pencils, which are too unwieldy for precise lines, Ink for Eyes goes on just right every time. Which is more than you can say about some one-night stands...or some tattoos, for that matter.
