An eyeliner is one of the essentials of any make-up bag. It’s the one thing you use every single day—and that’s why it’s important to know the best budget buys available in the market to be able to stock up anytime you need.
1. Lakmé Insta Eye Liner
One of the oldest eyeliners in the market, this formula is super-pigmented and offers intense colour pay off. The tip is extremely fine—which means you can create looks ranging from thin to bold strokes—and glides on smoothly.
2. Maybelline New York Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner
Gel formulas are an industry favourite. This long-lasting formula offers intense colour and promises to stay put for 36 hours! The formula is quick drying, water- and smudge-proof. It also comes with a liner brush that helps you create different looks easy-peasy.
3. Glamyou Yanqina Precision Liquid Waterproof Lash Eyeliner Pencil
A pen-formula, it’s super-convenient to carry with you everywhere you go—a huge plus! It comes with a felt tip, which makes it easier to create precise wings or dramatic, OTT strokes (even if you have shaky hands), and is completely smudge-proof. Bonus: it won’t budge for a 12-hour straight.
