I get asked a lot about what type of eyeliner and mascara I prefer. Honestly, I’ve tried high end and drugstore, and I really think drugstore eyeliners and mascaras have come a long way and you can almost NEVER tell the difference between high end and some drug store mascara and eyeliners.
Here are my favorites:
These happen to be my favorite drugstore mascara and liners, but I would actually recommend these over high end they’re so good!!
1. Physicians Formula Eye Booster 2-in-2 lash boosting felt tip eyeliner + Serum. This product is pretty new, I saw that it’s a felt tip black eyeliner with lash boosting serum in it?! For me, I love this because the thick marker is easy to use and draws a liquid line quickly, plus it goes on super black. I haven’t noticed that much of a difference in my lashes , but just knowing that it has serum that is supposed to help the thickness of your lashes has made me want to re-purchase this product!!!
2. Milani Liquif’eye Eyeliner in Black. This eyeliner is best for lining the inner rim of your eye. It goes on dark and black, and is super smooth and creamy. It’s my favorite for the “inner rim” of your eye. Plus, it’s under $10.
3. Cover Girl Lash Blast in Very Black. Honestly, I had heard about how GREAT this mascara was by tons of beauty gurus and blogs and I always put off trying it because I thought I had found the best. Well, this stuff is amazing! It gives good definition without clumps and lenthens and thickens. It’s my new favorite for sure!!!

Do you love your eyeliner? Are you addicted to a certain one but it’s from the department store and costs somewhere between $15-20? I found a drugstore eyeliner for half that price that is being added to one of my favorites! It’s the Milani Liquif’eye Eyeliner!
What I love about this eyeliner is how soft and easy it glides on! It reminds me of theMAC powerpoint pencils but even softer. It also compares very well to the Urban Decay 24/7 eye liner pencils. Both eyeliners I love, but Milani’s is half the price at $6.99! It is super soft and creamy and sharpens easily, and precisely.
The BEST thing about this eyeliner is how pigmented it is, especially if you use eyeliner in the waterline of your eye. It goes on extremely pigmented the first timeyou apply, you don’t need to keep going over and over to bring up the intensity. (The waterline in case you didn’t know is the inside part of your lower lash line that actually touches up against your eye.) I will insert some photos of me wearing this Milani Liquif’eye so you can see what it looks like on the inner waterline of my eye.
I couldn’t find this pencil on the Milani website, but you can definitely find these pencils at most drugstores that carry Milani!
Hope you’re all having a great Monday! Have you found any favorite drugstore eyeliners? Please share them with me.

I have a secret to share. This is one of the best eye make-up tips I can give you!!
And, it is…MAC paint pot in Painterly. It is my all time favorite all over eye base before applying eye shadow. I use it almost every day and can’t imagine life without it.
This has been my all time favorite “neutral” eye shadow base/primer of any I’ve tried. But, there is a new drugstore product out there that is really giving the MAC paint pots a run for their money. It is theMaybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eye shadows. I was very hesitant about buying one of these to try but they were getting such great reviews I had to try, and I am NOT disappointed.
They are long wearing, don’t crease, go and smoothly and give really great color payoff. I still love my MAC paint pot in painterly because it’s neutral. But, these are really great for a pop of color, or a base for a colorful eye shadow look. The packaging even looks just like the MAC paint pots.
So my favorite colors? Tough as Taupe which is a neutral matte greyish taupe and Too Cool which is a shimmery white. It gives a beautiful frosted affect.
So tell me…have you tried these yet? If not..what is your favorite eye shadow primer??
