Eyeliner is one of those products you love using, but hate spending a ton of money on. I own a ton of liners and majority of them are quite expensive. I almost want to shed a tear anytime I think about what I’ve spent on eyeliners alone. I’ve decided to stop doing that and start searching for a more affordable alternative to the higher end brands. Let me tell you, I’ve found some amazing products — and they’re super affordable!
If you haven’t found the perfect liner at the drugstore, you’re in luck! Here is a look at the top 5 eyeliners that are less than $10!
Milani Liquifeye Metalic Eye Liner Pencil. This was a product that I picked up on a whim because I had a $5 off $15 purchase of Milani products at CVS. Top that with a general $5 off $10 makeup purchase, I couldn’t pass up checking out this liner. For $7.99, the affordable pencil glides on smoothly, and can be used on the upper lash and waterline. It’s super pigmented and lasts throughout the day. This is everything you could want in an eyeliner.
Wet N Wild Mega Eyes Crème Eyeliner. If you want an affordable gel liner, check out the Wet N Wild Mega Eyes Crème liner. It’s $3.99 and will last all day – without any smudging! I don’t like the brush it comes with, but that’s okay since I already own the perfect brush for gel liners. It’s pigmented, dries fairly quickly, so work fast, and will last most of the day. I couldn’t believe it since I have super oily eye lids.
L’Oreal Paris Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner. This liner is a cult classic among beauty bloggers and YouTubers and I can definitely see why. The tiny felt tip brush makes applying the pigmented liner even easier. You can start out with a small line and work your way up to a thicker line. If you’re new to the cat line, this brush makes creatign the perfect wing a breeze. For $6.50, you can’t go wrong with this liner.
Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Definer. This is a great liner that doesn’t pull or tug on the lids, and works better and easier than an eye kohl from high-end brands. It’s nicely pigmented and comes in a variety of shades. I’m not the biggest fan of the blender tip, but it may work out better for you. I blend my liner with my MAC 219 brush. At $5.99, this could be the liner that you’re looking for.
Maybelline Master Drama Cream Pencil. This was a bit of a surprise for me. I had a coupon that made it more affordable, retail price is $7.99, so I thought I’d give it a try after reading great reviews. The liner is easy to apply, pigmented, and lasted several hours on my eyes, without any smudging. For someone with oily lids, this is surprising since most lines run or smudge.
