Requested: Cost Effective, Perfect Eyeliners

After having sampled a fair few eyeliners in my time, I have made a short list of the ones that I feel are worthy of purchasing. It was specifically requested that I recommend cost effective ones, however I do feel there are many great pricier options available.

- Maybelline Define-a-Line liquid Eyeliner Pen RRP $22.99
This is my top pick for affordability and performance. The shade soft black would be my choice for those wanting a dark line or the basis for a smokey eye. The fuschia packaging is also very eye catching. A winner all round.

-Revlon Colourstay Liquid Eye Pen RRP $27.00
This eyeliner is applied the same way the Maybelline one is, a felt-tip pen with a precise point. Easy application, however quite hard to remove. The pigmentation on this one is great though, very dark and defined. The only down side for me is how hard it is to take off. I definitely don't like eyeliner lurking in my lashes at bedtime.

- L'Oreal Contour Kohl Eye Pencil RRP $26.99
This liner is part of the newer collection of L'Oreal liners (About 6months old). I LOVE the pigmentation on this one. Very dark and similar to my Estee Lauder Doublewear Eye Pencil. I'm having a bit of a moment with liquid liners, but if I had to purchase a new kohl pencil, it would be this one.

-L'Oreal Infallible Longwear Retractable Eyeliner RRP $26.99
I've never really jumped on the retractable eyeliner bandwagon, just doesn't seem like my thing. This eyeliner didn't really exceed my expectations either. The pigmentation wasn't all that great and the plastic smudger on the end just doesn't seem practical. Probably wouldn't waste my money on this one. Buy the Contour Kohl instead.

Other liners worth a mention:
-Napoleon Perdis Liquid Liner Pen
-Lancome Artliner
-Estee Lauder Doublewear Pencil
-Elizabeth Arden Gel Liner
