When Sarah Jessica Parker speaks, style and beauty lovers listen.
During an appearance on the “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” After Show, Parker gushed about the onebeauty product she always keeps in her makeup bag, so naturally we took notes.
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour, $29, Nordstrom
The star is obsessed with Laura Mercier’s caviar stick. “I always have it,” Parker said. “Because I don’t basically wear anything else. I don’t wear a base or anything.”
Parker swore by the deep green jungle shade, which seems to have been sadly discontinued, but the handy eye shadow still comes in an impressive 18 colors. The brand's khaki color seems to be similar, with a gray base and subtle green undertones. A simple smudge of the eyeliner can make your eyes pop, especially if they’re blue or green.
Parker’s favorite product serves as both a liner and shadow, providing double the bang for your buck. This Laura Mercier stick glides on easily and stays put all day. It's available in a variety of matte and metallic finishes, which, when used together, create an epic smokey look for a big night out.
Other Eye Pencils We Love
If Parker's recommendation isn't speaking to you, there are plenty of other ways to achieve a gorgeous smoky eye. After trying out many different options, we rounded up our favorite creamy eyeliners and pencils. Read on for some of our favorites.
Yves Saint Laurent Dessin du Regard Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Green, $30, Nordstrom
Similar in price to Parker's go-to product, this Yves Saint Laurent waterproof eyeliner goes on delicately, unlike some eyeliners that feel like they scrape your lash line. Plus, it lasts for months. That's an investment we can get behind!
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Dark Golden Green, $22, Sephora
Urban Decay's glide-on pencil feels smooth and hardens in about 30 seconds. Then, it doesn't budge till the end of the day. It also comes in more than 40 shades — ranging from bright, bold hues to subdued, shimmery neutrals.
Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes, $19, Nordstrom
Looking for an everyday shade that can take you from day to night? Clinique's Chubby Stick might do the trick. For an daytime look, apply one thin layer. Then, in the evening, add a few more strokes of the creamy crayon and smudge with your fingertip to create more drama.
Covergirl Flamed Out Shadow Pencil in Ashen Glow Flame, $6, Amazon
This pencil is just thin enough to create a defined (but not sharp) line. It's also thick enough to use all over as a shadow. Use the vivid, mossy green for a chic, eye-popping look similar to Parker's. You'll channel Carrie Bradshaw in a snap!
