Even if you can hold a steady hand like a pro, applying gel eyeliner can be tricky territory. One wrong move, and you’ll end up with a too-thick finish, or even worse, mis-matched liner wings. It’s almost as if Benefit Cosmetics read our minds, because their latest launch combines the gel liner finish we love with the control of a pencil. Expanding on the famed They’re Real! mascara, the brand’s They’re Real! Push-Up liner houses a saturated gel formula in a user-friendly stylus that allows you to get the product thisclose to your lash line, making unwanted gaps a thing of the past.

Simply twist the base to bring the waterproof formula to the tip, glide across the base of your upper lash line, and finish by sweeping on a sharp, pointed wing, which is even easier with the precise, angled tip. Because the applicator is so flexible, you can literally press the shape of your cat eye into place without the use of tape, credit cards, or any other devices meant to create symmetrical flicks. Genius! Benefit’s They’re Real! Push-Up Liner officially hits stores on June 27 for $24, but you can get early access to the product by adding your name to the waiting list on thelinetofine.com now.
