I’ve had a love affair with liquid eyeliner pens for quite a while now. It’s actually in my top three make-up picks if I were to be stranded on a desert island (after lipstick and mascara natch, because you obviously NEED make-up when you’re in the middle of nowhere!)
For a number of years now I’ve been a dedicated Kat Von D Tattoo Liner fan. It’s always reliable and ridiculously easy to use but for $28 a pop it’s not the cheapest liner on the market. Once the clock struck midnight on the New Year I vowed to make a conscious effort on spending less on my every day make-up needs and I was going to start with eyeliner.
I was on the lookout for a pen that delivered all the fabulousness of the KVD liner but hopefully at half the price…and I found one even cheaper! A quick browse on the Priceline website and I found Beauty Essentials Felt Eye Liner Pen for the bargain price of $3!
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!
Of course I was super sceptical because it was so cheap. I had visions of the nib cracking on impact and having panda eyes by 11am but I needn’t have worried because this liner is awesome! The nib is very sturdy (I’d even go far to say that it’s better than KVD) and makes it easy to deliver a solid line of make-up. It also lasts just as long as KVD and doesn’t run or bleed into my eyelid.
Needless to say I’m a huge fan of Beauty Essentials pen and I’ve been converted! With a $25 saving I’m more than sold. Have you tried Beauty Essentials or a similar über cheap liner?
