When in Doubt, Wing it Out: The Ultimate (High End and Affordable) Eyeliner Options!


Save: NYC Liquid Liner

If you’re beauty obsessed, there’s about a 99.9% chance you either know of, or already love the every hyped NYC Liquid Liner in “Black”. This 3 dollar product is known as being one of the ULTIMATE liner choices, high end or drugstore. With a liquidy consistency, an ultra precise brush, and a jet-black, matte formula- you truly can’t beat this classic. For anybody who is just getting into eyeliner, I highly suggest you check out this awesome option before splurging on something more expensive.

Splurge: Blinc Liquid Eyeliner

That being said, if you’re gonna splurge- splurge on this. The Blinc Inc Liquid Eyeliner is by far the best (and most underrated) liquid liner I have ever tried. While the packaging and application of this product is extremely similar to it’s 3 dollar counterpart, the formula wins out in the end. This unique formula forms a water resistant layer of color on the eyes that binds easily and effortlessly to the lids. And the best part? Absolutely zero smudging. This formula is designed to peel off in pieces rather than smudge off, and when removing from the lids, this liner leaves no trace.



Save: Maybelline Eyestudio Gel Eyeliner 

Due to their long wear, and easy application, gel liners are a personal favorite of mine. And it doesn’t get a whole lot better than the ever affordable Maybelline Eyestudio Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black. This creamy formula holds super black pigmentation that dries down to a spectacularly smooth and matte finish. This is a drugstore staple for me and will always be one of my favorites.

Splurge: Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner 

If you’re feeling like you need a little luxe in your life, I would immediately ship you off to Sephora to drop your dough on the Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner. This famed liner lives up to it’s name and will last the whole dang day without a hint of smudging. I’ve been using this product for years and have no plans of changing that in the future. #Perfection.




Save: Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner

When I think of affordable pencil liners, I often think of stiff, harsh, and NO pigmentation! But all of those thoughts disappeared when I discovered the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Liner. This Kohl Kajal provides the look and finish of a gel liner, but in a pencil form. I would be pretty shocked if you found ANYTHING better than this bad boy at the drugstore.

Splurge: Mally Beauty Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Liner

As much as I love the Rimmel option, I find this Mally Beauty liner just as creamy, but a tad bit more long lasting. The waterproof formula makes this perfect for rimming the waterline and adding a bit of sultriness to any look. The shade “Midnight” is a perfect, deep black shade that will add instant intensity.


Thanks for reading everyone! Don’t forget to check back every Sunday and Wednesday for new posts 🙂

-Love, Lieve
