As part of their spring 2012 launch, Stila recently released eight colorful Smudge Crayon Waterproof Eye Colors that won't smudge, crease or fade until you take them off. These are very waterproof, so be prepared to use a little makeup remover, cold cream and maybe a microfiber towel (if you've never tried a microfiber towel to take off your makeup, you need to try it. It's great for that impossibly hard to remove mascara.).
(Black, Umber, Midnight Blue, Antique, Dazzle, Kitten, Pink Violet, Smoke)
The colors are true and don't fade throughout the day. You also get a generous amount of play time with these crayons before they dry down to their semi-permanent state. These colors apply slightly thicker on the lid and while you don't need a primer, if you have crepey eyes, you may want to use some kind of primer that will help suspend the shadow over the actual texture of your lid.
Kitten or Antique are fantastic for a quick weekend day eye look. Smoke makes for a fantastic really easy smoky eye (a five-year-old could do it. I'm tempted to get my niece to try my theory, but she's four.) Midnight Blue would also be gorgeous as a smoky eye. You can't really go wrong with these.
Check them out for $22 each from Stilacosmetics.com or Sephora.
