Yea! Great product name!
But I feel like Flower Beauty should have added an ellipses at the end of their new $7 On Your Mark Liquid Eye Liner, because that’s how I say it in my head.
“On your mark…”
With the pause at the end. LOL!
I’ve been all about liquid liners with shiny finishes lately — liners like the $30 Diorshow Art Pen, which might as well be Velcroed to my hand — paired with some of this season’s raddest lipsticks from Buxom, NARS, Laura Mercier, MAC and Milani.
Some products just seem so right together, don’t they? That’s how I feel about liquid liner and lipstick. They’re a classic pairing, like scrunchies and side ponytails, or Katniss and Peeta (which reminds me, The Hunger Games is now available on Netflix, holla!).
Unfortunately, the Diorshow Art Pen costs three hamiltons (which doesn’t flow off the tongue as well as “benjamins”), so I’ve been looking for a drugstore alternative that lasts just as long and is just as easy to apply.
I think I may have found it, too, in Flower Beauty’s water-resistant On Your Mark Liquid Eye Liner, which has a flexible felt tip that lays down lines just as smoothly as the Art Pen from Dior.
So long-lasting (12 hours)! So perspiration-proof (I ran 3 miles with it on, and it didn’t even budge)! So affordable at just $7!
I haven’t been able to keep my hands off it, and I think my Dior liner’s even getting a little jealous…
On Your Mark comes in a Brown shade. The one in Black — the one I’ve been wearing — is a true black without any hints of blue or green. Its wet pavement-like shine springs to life on my lids and keeps my eye makeup from looking too autumnal/fall.
I plan to wear it a lot this spring and summer with this season’s new lipsticks, and maybe even with some false lashes when I have the time.
I feel very modern Mad Men when I have it on…except with far fewer vodka tonics and girdles.

This is probably going to sound totally cat lady crazy, but Tabs is actually perched on my right shoulder as I type this — which is difficult, by the way, as he weighs about 20 pounds now — and he’s purring up a storm.
I’ve been thinking about recording all of his cute cat noises into my computer — his meows, chirps and purrs — and saving them for posterity.
Uh…did that sound as crazy on your end of the monitor as it just did on mine?
