Years ago, the MTV reality show The Hills gave the world one of the best .gifs on the internet. Even if you never watched The Hills (your loss), you've probably seen the famous image of protagonist Lauren Conrad crying the slowest makeup tears.

Apparently, that makeup pouring down her cheek wasn't even mascara—it was eyeliner. "You know what’s funny? … I’m actually crying eyeliner,” she told Elle. “I used to wear so much liquid eyeliner, and it wasn't waterproof; it was just whatever I'd buy at [the drugstore]. I always wore waterproof mascara, but I'd never realized the rest of your eye makeup can drip too.”

"Now I only wear waterproof eyeliner,” she continued. “But the best one is from Avon's mark line. They discontinued it. I have two more in my fridge and then I'm out. And I have no idea what I'm going to do.”

The rest, as they say, is still unwritten.
