The Contender: Sephora 12 Hour Wear Waterproof Contour Eye Pencil in Black Lace
"When I was sprayed with water, the eyeliner did smudge quite a bit. In fact, I felt like it was all over my face, and not just near my eyes. Not sure how that even happened, but I felt like a hot mess."

"Friends, I can't believe I've found a water-resistant makeup product that's actually water-resistant! After the water spritz, it didn't smudge in the slightest, It's water-resistant, super-pigmented, and has a smooth application. Did I mention it's a mechanical pencil with a swivel-up applicator — all for less than $7? I think I found my new go-to."

The Contender: Kat Von D Autograph Waterproof Pencil in True Amor
"Thankfully, the eyeliner did not smudge when I was sprayed with water; it stayed right in place, and did not run into my eye creases."
