This is something I've only recently discovered, but immediately fell in love with! It's perfect for lining the inside of your bottom eyelids and right under your bottom lashes as well as the corners of your eyes! The beauty of this product is that it's small enough to really cover the areas under the eyes that the powder just can't get to, it makes all the difference! I've had all my makeup staples for years without finding another product for my daily routine that I can't live without, until I tried this highlight liner!

I learned the white eyeliner on your lower water line trick years ago from a theater buff and loved how it opens the eye. I remember watching a YouTuber review this product and being intrigued so I went out and bought it. Now it's part of my holy grail of makeup products collection! I love how it's way less harsh than using a white eyeliner and gives the same open eye effect. It's a must have staple for any beauty junkie.

Fake Awake is a great product when you want to subtly boost the brightness of your eye area.  It's creamy and long wearing and can be smudged onto the waterline or the inner corner for a refreshing, eye opening look.  It makes a huge difference in your overall appearance without being too noticeable.

These really wake you up just like it says! It gives me a pop of light and my eyes look bigger almost! I really enjoy using these and not only for my eyes, but for my lips if I want to soften a pink lip and make it ombré! -@xxtiffanybeauty

I seriously use this every day! It applys so smooth and it's very hydrating. You only need a little bit with this because you don't want it to look chunky. The packaging is super cute a cute nude with star packaging l. I think I this was more on the affordable side and I definitely recommend it to anyone looking to brighten up their eye look

This is my saving grace! It helps brighten my eyes on those days; that I didn’t sleep so well. It’s creamy and it’s easy to apply. It didn’t move around either. I wish I could find a drugstore dupe.

I really enjoy using this on my waterline! It brightens but doesn’t look “fake”, the only thing I would say could be “improved” is longevity! I don’t feel it lasts all day. I probably get 4-5hrs wear from application.

This eyeliner is so awesome! When used on your lower lash line, it makes your eyes look more opened, awake & bigger! I put eyeshadow on my lower lash line that matches my crease color and then I use this on my lower water line. It makes my eyes look open & bigger. A lot of people use white eyeliner for this effect which is great, but this is a nude color so it's more natural looking! It makes your eyes pop, but in a more natural way than a bright white. It's a perfect color, glides on so smoothly and lasts all day long! The amount in this is great and it's a twist up so you will never have to sharpen it! I use it daily and couldn't go without it!

Do you use the smudger on the opposite end?
