Top 3 Eyeliners Under £5

Hello Beauties!

Hope you've all had an amazing weekend! Today I thought we could chat about my #1 beauty product, the one I can't live without, Eyeliner! Love it or loathe it, I think most girls try it at some point. I've now been drawing a little line on my eyelids since I was 12, which is a whole 10 years, it's fair to say i've tried a few! These 3 happen to be my favourite at the moment. 

Essence Liquid Ink £2.50-Essence is pretty new to the market in the UK only available in Wilkinson stores I think, so this is a lesser known brand! I actually picked this 'highshine' version up by mistake as it also comes in 'matte' but I still really like it, The colour is really really dark and opaque and the brush is my second favourite out of the 3, as it's brilliant for thick or thin lines just above the eyelid but for a wing edge/point it's okay, although the bristles of the brush aren't exactly aligned sometimes the 'flick' can look a little messy, It also has a habit of flaking if over layerd it actually started on my hand you can see it in the photo as I went over it a few to many times.  However, it lasts really long time on the eyes and I find it hardly budges, it's also super easy to remove!

Miss Sporty  Studio Lash £2.79- Little bit of a strange name for an eye liner? but this has been one of my favourites for a good few years now and it's all down the that terrifying looking brush, it's really just a long, thin, pointed and bendy piece of plastic but I can achieve any eye liner look! The liquid is also amazing, long lasting and easily removable it doesn't flake when layered either. I'm actually really struggling to find a replacement for this one as I can't find it anywhere! I really hope they haven't discontinued it, its an amazing start off eyeliner for beginners. 

Seventeen Tattoo Me £4.49 - This is the waterproof eyeliner of all eyeliners, if you have oily eyes or eyes that tend to water this one is for you! It doesn't move, in face I even struggle to get this off with my holy grail of oil based eye make up removers, and it does make a bit of a mess in the process. However, this doesn't diminish my love for this eyeliner, the most opaque. intense and dark black eyeliner I've come across, but it's most certainly not for the faint hearted, you have to look it in the eye and be its boss or the smallest mistake could mean you have to restart everything. I love the brush again like the essence counterpart for the lash line, but the point in this brush isn't the best either... Perfect for those long shifts/nights out but not one I would use everyday!

I'll let you in on a little secret, I've always pre-drawn my eyeliner very lightly with the Miss Sporty one as it's perfect for EVERY type of flick/thickness/cat eye and then I go over it with whatever other eyeliner I want to use depending on the effect I'm after. It's a really handy little tip and will save you so much time in clean up. 

What's your favourite Eyeliner?

  3. These all look really great. I haven't tried any of these, but I have tried other essence liners and been pleasantly surprised. My all time favorite is the Wet n Wild liquid eyeliner. Such a SUPER matte black - love it!

  4. I have a confession: I really suck at liquid eyeliner :( I love it but I just can't do it!
