I’ve had a love affair with liquid eyeliner pens for quite a while now. It’s actually in my top three make-up picks if I were to be stranded on a desert island (after lipstick and mascara natch, because you obviously NEED make-up when you’re in the middle of nowhere!)
For a number of years now I’ve been a dedicated Kat Von D Tattoo Liner fan. It’s always reliable and ridiculously easy to use but for $28 a pop it’s not the cheapest liner on the market. Once the clock struck midnight on the New Year I vowed to make a conscious effort on spending less on my every day make-up needs and I was going to start with eyeliner.
I was on the lookout for a pen that delivered all the fabulousness of the KVD liner but hopefully at half the price…and I found one even cheaper! A quick browse on the Priceline website and I found Beauty Essentials Felt Eye Liner Pen for the bargain price of $3!
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!
Of course I was super sceptical because it was so cheap. I had visions of the nib cracking on impact and having panda eyes by 11am but I needn’t have worried because this liner is awesome! The nib is very sturdy (I’d even go far to say that it’s better than KVD) and makes it easy to deliver a solid line of make-up. It also lasts just as long as KVD and doesn’t run or bleed into my eyelid.
Needless to say I’m a huge fan of Beauty Essentials pen and I’ve been converted! With a $25 saving I’m more than sold. Have you tried Beauty Essentials or a similar über cheap liner?

VIBRANT COLORS!! GOOD DEMONSTRATION…IS THAT THE ONLY SHADE YOU LIKE?
Thanks Jonathan! Yup, only comes in black but I’d love it if it was available in more shades 🙂
PARDON MY IGNORANCE…and I don’t always read well—but what were the colored pencils shown at the beginning? Would they work for eye shadow…or are they too hard?
They were actually coloured pencils! 🙂 Just adding them for a fun effect
OH… I used them for emphasis in several portrait sketches in college.
Ooooh yes, I love a liquid eyeliner pen! I’ve currently got a Zoeva Cat Eye Pen on the go – it was cheap on Beauty Bay but when I went to check the exact price, it says it can’t be shipped here?! DAFUQ? Apparently it’s restricted now GRRRRRR. In that case, I will certainly be checking these bad boys out. Please tell me how you get such a good wing!
Oh that sucks! I wonder why it’s restricted??
I’d love to tell you that I am super skilled in the art of the cat-eye but alas it’s all dumb luck. For some reason I can do my right eye really well while my left eye looks like the feeble little cousin! Still practising!!
