Beauty Splurge vs. Steal of the Week: Stila Liquid Liner

Stila liquid liner splurge versus steal

In this weekly column, I’m bringing you my favorite budget-friendly beauty products (and their high-end equivalents!) that are available online and in-store. This week, we’re chatting liquid liner (!). Also make sure to check out my blog, for even more beauty product reviews and tips.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner is definitely a go-to liquid liner for most makeup artists, and for good reason. The waterproof liner (a must, of course) glides on easily and doesn’t smudge or run. What I love most about this liquid eyeliner is the thin marker-like tip that makes it pretty much idiot-proof for shaky handed people like myself…but the way I go through this eyeliner, $20 a pop isn’t very ideal.
After testing probably 30 different liquid liners (seriously), my favorite/the closest to the Stila version I could find was e.l.f. Essential Waterproof Eyeliner Pen. Guys…it only costs $2 and it’s super, super close to the Stila version, like I said. You really can’t beat that!

I'm obsessed with the Stila liquid eyeliner and am always stocking up on it which can add up. Will definitely need to try the e.l.f. one - thanks! xx
