They are not a very good option for a workday at the office because daily application can be tedious and, though most formulas claim to be smudge free, they can often wear off on clothes.
Most lenses are coated with a smudge resistant coating that repels water, dust and oils from the skin and are designed to resist glare which can result when the sun's reflection hits the pavement.
This mascara not only lived up to its hype, it also lasted the day without a single smudge and was very comfortable on my sensitive eye area.
You can use a rich bronze eye shadow and simply apply to the top eyelid for emphasis, or use the shadow on the upper lid, in the crease, and under the lower lashes and smudge to create a sexy, smoky look.
The cat eye is also less likely to smudge and look "tired" like the smoky eye, so plan on this look if you want infallible beauty all night long!
