All about Eyeliner: Top Drugstore Eyeliners + Application Tips

By Trecee Hutchinson - 1:43:00 PM

The one staple in my makeup collection is eyeliner. I can't be the only one to feel that sometimes the eyeliner can make or break a makeup look. Today, I want share some of my favorite eyeliner formulas as well as application tips. Eyeliner is one of those make up items that I think that the drugstore does really well, so I only have one mid range liner that I swear by, but today I'm just going to focus on my favorite drug store liners.

As far as liquid eyeliner, the NYC Liquid Liner is my holy grail. It's super affordable at 2.99 and is so easy to apply. The formula is very pigmented and the applicator makes doing liquid liner a lot easier. It has really good staying power, but isn't waterproof. This will come off if you rub your eye or cry, but I love wearing this on an everyday basis when I am doing winged liner. I wouldn't recommend this beginners as I can get kind of messy really quickly.


Wet n Wild Proline Graphic Marker Eyeliner

So this eyeliner is a relatively new product to me. I picked it up last month on a whim and I must say it blew me away!! This is a marker style liner and is SOOOO black. It lasting power also blew me away. I have been wearing this liner non stop since i bought it and It lasts all day and then some. The marker comes to a really pointy tip that makes applying a wing so easy. Also, it like $3.99 and you can't beat that price for such good product. This liner would be ideal for beginners who want to practice getting that perfect wing or if you don't have a lot of time to get ready this liner will help speed up the process.

Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil:
So quick backstory, for a long time my favorite mechanical liner was the L'oreal Infallible liner, but one day I didn't feel like spending ten bucks so i got this one instead. Once I tried this for $2.49, I never looked back at the L'oreal pencil. This is hands down my every day liner for the waterline. Just like the name it's so long lasting. I also have really teary eyes and this liner still does not move. I even recommended this to my bestie and she loves this pencil too. When ever some one asks me what eyeliner to buy, this is the first one I recommend, because it is the best value for the price point hands down.

Comment below your favorite eyeliners because I love to try new products.

  1. Eyeliner is the one thing I rarely leave the house with, I love the stuff! I currently use Lorac's Front of The Line liquid liner or L'oreal's Super Liner but am always on the lookout for alternatives!

    The main thing i look for is a really inky black pigment so I'm loving the sound of that Wet N Wild one! I just wish it was easily available here in the UK :(
