This dual-sided liner is truly a one-stop-shop for your eyes.

Urban Decay 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil ($20)
This line of pencils (they come in five different shades) is specifically designed to glide along the inner rim of your waterline. Once the color sets, its waterproof formula keeps it intact for standout color all day or night.
