    Tips for getting Smolder to LAST on the waterline?

    I have a problem-Smolder, and basically every other eyeliner, has a tendency to just disappear from my waterline! I don't rub my eyes and they aren't particularly watery so I have no idea why this is happening, but does anyone have any tips to prevent it? Thanks!

    Is Tropic a LE color?

    Is Tropic a perm? color from Nars? I just saw it and I adore it but I'm trying to figure out if I put off this lemming off for a little while. Does Nars even do LE stuff? I'm so used to the mad-grab for MAC limited edition products, lol!
