Comparisons | Drugstore Eyeliner Pens




There are a large range of eyeliners at the drugstore, pencil, liquid, pen, gel. The easiest to apply, in my opinion, are eyeliner pens. You don't have to worry about transfer or smudging, and is definitely a staple for your makeup routine.


But do you need to splurge and get the high end $20 Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner Pen, or are drugstore alternatives just as good? And which ones are worth the money?


Here's my overview of a few of the drugstore eyeliner pens I've tried and which ones I would recommend.
