desperately seeking _________

1) a "long wearing" eyeliner that is, y'know, long-wearing. Too many times have I come home lately to notice that my supposedly budge-proof MAC Powerpoint has slid from my eyelids into the outer corner of my eye, and is dripping down under my lower lashes and across great swaths of my face. This look flatters no one, I promise. Am I smearing waterproof makeup remover across my eyes while I'm out having dinner? No. Then why does this "waterproof" liner end up smearing about after just a few hours? I am highly dissatisfied.
Any no-smudge, no-smear, waterproof eyeliner you'd like to recommend? Once this Buried Treasure pencil is out, I'm through with the underperforming $15 Powerpoints.

2) grey or black skinny jeans with an appropriate rise. By "appropriate" I mean "will hold in the ever-present muffin-top"- none of this 5" rise malarkey. I'm thinking 8" rise, minimum.
Revolve has a lovely function to search by style, color, and rise (missing from too many online stores!), and is suggesting the Cheap Monday jeans here, but I am a little wary, as I haven't been able to try on a pair of Cheap Mondays for fit. Perhaps that will be a NYC quest for next week. Other suggestions? (Stipulation: and by that I mean "cheap as possible".)
brilliant update: Those CMs are now $40 on the Urban Outfitters website. STAY ON SALE until I can try you on in a store and determine whether or not I can for my legs into your denim, pretty please!
