As something of a makeup newbie, I keep coming across the same problem: My eyeliner smudges by the end of the day and leaves me looking like more of a raccoon and less like the edgy off-duty model that I had been intending to emulate. But I have (finally) found a product that works, fits within my budget, and gets delivered to my front door within a day or two. Meet: the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Gel Eye Liner Pencil in the shade "Black."

But don't take my word for it: This very pencil has over 10,000 five-star reviews on Amazon. Users swear by it thanks to its failsafe staying power, inky color, and smooth gel-like texture. Some even claim that they've slept in it without it ever fading.

Even better, it's currently retailing for less than $3 as a part of Amazon's ongoing Holiday Beauty Haul Event. While it wasn't very expensive to begin with—it originally retails for only $5—you can nab it so much less if you act fast. These deals change by the day, and this one definitely won't last long.

Don't think for a second that this black pencil won't give you that smudgy, model-off-duty look that is ever so popular at the moment. The creamy waterproof pencil blends easily before setting in place for all-day wear that won't fade, crease, or flake. That means that it'll also give you the perfect winged look in a snap.

Reviewers even claim that it works better than even the priciest eyeliner options on the market right now, proving that you can really save your money without sacrificing how your makeup will wear throughout the day.
