For when your  Pot of gel eyeliner finishes

Kajal is used as a waterline eye makeup in both upper and lower eyelids whereas eyeliner is used as an eyelid makeup to define both the outside of upper and lower eyelids.

and the one with the thin tiny tip (the liquid one)

and they also come in different colours.

Old mascara could also be used as an eyelash curler

depending on the wand-style
