In my constant quest to find a stable of drugstore items to call holy grails, I recently picked up CoverGirl’s Perfect Point Plus eyeliner in Charcoal.
A twist-up liner with a sponge tip it’s easy to use and glides on the lid super smoothly, and I found that it stood the test of running around all day. As an alternative to black, the charcoal grey is a great choice for those times you might not want to have such an intense eye look.
However, one caveat: it does not work well for lining your inner rims at all, so I’d recommend a separate product for that purpose.
For $4.99 at Drugstore.com, it’s not half bad and consistently gets good ratings. Could be better, as far as the lining of the rims goes, but otherwise it does not smudge or crumble, and that’s a good thing.
