Artist Liner ($19.00) (New, Permanent)

MAKE UP FOR EVER introduces Artist Liner, a highly pigmented, gliding eye pencil that offers endless creative possibilities to effortlessly define and enhance eyes. With colors ranging from a carbon, matte black to an iridescent pop of purple, Artist Liner gives eyeliner a bold update for fall. 

Artist Liner is a twist-up, gliding eye pencil that delivers intense color payoff in a range of shades. The formula is especially silky and blendable for easy application, and the twist-up pencil means never having to sharpen. The ultra-creamy texture can draw a bold, long-lasting line, or can be blended out for a smoky effect. A combination of Oils and Waxes give Artist Liner smudge-proof properties, while Polymers and Pigments work to provide a long-wearing result and color intensity. Available in 15 hues in Matte, Metallic, Iridescent, Diamond, and Satin finishes, play up your eyes and play with color for a classic or creative look that can take you from day to night.
