At the expense of sounding like a broken record I think that what I have to say bears repeating: Prestige Cosmetics makes extraordinary quality products that rival their department store counterparts, but at affordable drugstore prices. Their products boast rich pigmentation, creamy textures, and astounding wear-time. Prestige Cosmetics offers proof positive that this can be achieved, but the real question is why doesn't every drugstore brand follow suit?!
I have a rather troubled relationship with waterproof eyeliners in that they either tend to be a bit too harsh for my sensitive eyes, or they aren't as transfer-proof as they purport to be. Others still, may deliver on their promise to be waterproof, but can be so hard that they require a tremendous amount of pressure to apply to the eyes in order to get any pigmentation. Therefore, my ultimate waterproof eyeliners have to be creamy and easy to apply, but that stay put once they set. They need to be transfer-proof, but at the same time easy to remove when it's time. Furthermore, they must be gentle and non-irritating on my sensitive eyes. Prestige Cosmetics has two different waterproof eyeliner formulas, and both check all of the boxes on my must-have list, and they do so extraordinarily well.
The Prestige Cosmetics Waterproof Eyeliner formula comes in 8 glorious colors ($5.50 each from Prestige Cosmetics, Ulta and Drugstore.com) (Affiliate Links).
The Prestige Waterproof Eyeliners offer very soft and creamy application with long-lasting fade and smudge-proof wear, and they are really truly waterproof. They are transfer-proof, and the colors are stunning! Furthermore, they stay put until you want to remove them! They are user friendly liners that require sharpening.
• Soft application • Long lasting wear • 100% Waterproof
Star (10) is a gorgeous white with an eye-catching shimmer that is stunningly beautiful and eye-brightening! I have used it in the inner corner of my eyes, but haven't tried it on my waterline since it contains shimmer, and because I have very sensitive and easily irritated eyes.
Surf (17) is a stunning deep and complex navy blue with shimmer. It makes one of the most stunning eyeliners imaginable. It also pairs beautifully with Star. Surf is my eyeliner of choice this summer!
