Whether for defining, tight-lining, or smudging, pencil eyeliners are one of the most versatile, multi-purpose eye products out there. While liquid, cream, and gel eyeliners tend to be better formulas for creating more precise lines, like cat-eyes, french-flicks, and wings, kohl and pencil liners give you the ability to add definition to your upper and lower lashline, apply on the lid for a smokey eye effect, rim your waterline for a smoldering look, and well, the list of look options goes on and on. Pencil liners, however, often get a bad rap for smearing, burning, and fading throughout the day, resulting in an unwanted raccoon vibe, but with...

I've always had sparse eyebrows, and I fill them in almost daily. Over the past decade, I've tried what seems like every brow pencil, pen, and makeup there is. A few have been at the top of my list, but nothing has ever fulfilled my wishes. I always found myself mixing one pen with another pencil, then using a clear gel with a little colored gel. It felt like too much work. Then, I was lucky enough to get a preview of our beauty collection early when it first came out. After one quick glance, I knew there was one product I needed: the Beauty by POPSUGAR Triple Play 3-in-1 Brow ($23). What drew me to it was that it's not your run-of-the-mill pencil. It also features a clear gel and a highlighter stick (YES) all in one! Its easy-to-apply applicator has a square-like shape with ultrathin corners that fill every nook and cranny. My favorite feature: it's perfect for multitasking! While using it, I am able to switch back and forth between the applicator tip and the clear gel, which helps shape my hairs and keep them in place while continuing to fill them out. Plus, the highlighter is an added bonus. Not only has it saved space in my makeup bag, but it just works so well. Need more convincing? Right now if you use the code POPSUGAR, you can get it for 20 percent off. Keep reading to check out how I use it and get one for yourself.

The Sprout pencil turns unusable pencil nubs into sustainable plants.
For as long as I can remember, I've had circles under my eyes. (Seriously, I remember fixating on them in my high-school graduation pics.) I know I'm not alone in this, and I've tried so many products over the years to try to make this dark situation a bit brighter. While there are some that have reduced puffiness and filled in lines, I had not found a single one where I could also wear makeup at the same time. Whether these other eye treatments made my skin too oily (so the makeup slid right off), or caused concealer to settle into the lines even more dramatically, I had pretty much given up on a daytime eye cream. However, I recently got into Alpyn Beauty products, and this brand's balm not only didn't make my concealer pill or run, it left my undereye area even smoother, like a primer would. Learn how I applied the Alpyn Beauty PlantGenius Line-Filling Eye Balm With Bakuchiol ($62), and why it's now a permanent step in my mornings and evenings, ahead.
