Short and to the Point: Estee Lauder Duo-Tone Eye Pencil

Short and to the point. Literally. Estee Lauder's summer eyeliner offering, the Duo-Tone Eye Pencil in Aqua Teal, gives you just enough bright color to make your summer look pop.

Just enough, because you only get half a stick of each shade.

Why is this so smart? Well, when was the last time you actually ran out of an eyeliner that was any color besides brown or black? (OK, maybe navy and charcoal, too, but you get my drift.)

Hot summer colors like this are fun, but rare is the instance that you'll use the entire pencil before the fall temps start rolling in. With this pencil, you get just the right amount of TWO summer colors, without taking up extra room in your makeup bag, for $18.50.

Both shades are jewel-like and shimmery, and glide on super-smooth. My favorite way to wear a summer bright liner is, as always, a thin swipe on the lower lashline, with an otherwise neutral upper lid (black cat-eye works well, too).

I'm off to Hawaii next week, and this fab two-tone pencil is most definitely making the trip with me. It may be early spring in New York, but it's always summer on the beach, dolls!
