A funny, soulful, gorgeous person who is always thinking, Jillian Dempsey is one of those makeup artists who can make anyone look beautiful—or, really, however they want to look. Her always-thinking thing gives her a near-constant glint in her eye and gives us things like: the greatest makeup bag of all time and a gold vibrating roller that lifts your face for an entire day (or evening on a red carpet). Now she has out-invented even herself, ingeniously combining mascara and liquid eyeliner in one.

Is mascara and liquid eyeliner in one a good thing? Try it and you’ll never go back. By try it, I mean fool around with it in front of a mirror for a few minutes: It’s like a regular mascara wand—and the mascara itself is A-plus mascara—but it has a small, flexible, flickable extension on the end that dispenses liquid liner. You can do natural, barely-there definition with it or a full-on cat-eye, and it gives you enough time to play, smudge, or Q-tip away a mistake before it sets (and thereafter never smudges). I get the liner right first, then glide on the mascara, and then, if I want a little extra oomph, flick the liner back out (you’ll understand when you try it) and dab a bit on the outer corner of my upper lashes—a Jillian touch, of course. Besides lush lashes and super defined, sexy liner, the FLYK Trick delivers something else for 2024: a less-cluttered makeup bag.
