The Best Drugstore Eyeliners to Shop Now

Celebrity makeup artist Sabrina Bedrani, who works with stars like Sandra Bullock, Isla Fisher, and Kirsten Dunst, knows a thing or two about eyeliner. “You want a formula to glide on, but if it’s too creamy it won’t stay in place,” she says. That perfect consistency of not too dry and not too greasy is hard to find—especially on a budget!

What happened when Bedrani stopped by our offices to try almost 100 different drugstore liners? After nixing dozens of formulas for being too dry or chalky, not imparting enough colour, or not lasting long enough, a few stood out as the clear winners.

The only thing more impressive than Bedrani’s knowledge about liner, was her full and thick eye lashes. “I use L’Oreal’s Voluminous Mascara ($6)!” she told us. “It’s what I use on all my clients. It makes your lashes long and full.” Looks like she has your next drugstore mascara covered, too!
