From Lakme Eyeconic to Maybelline Colossal to Loreal Superliner, I have used every single eyeliner from almost all the drugstore range and I still have like a big stand full of eyeliners lying out in my makeup stash. I am fascinated by eyeliner pencils/kohl/liquid eyeliners after my Lipstick obsession. I buy almost every brand’s eyeliner which comes out in the market. After trying and testing all my eyeliners, here i come to a conclusion.
Here are my Top 5 eyeliner picks from the Indian drugstore brands. Few of them might sound over-budget, but trust me they are definitely a must-have in every girl’s beauty essentials.
In this post, i will be shortly reviewing each of the eyeliner based on their price, staying power, swatches, smudge-proof and water-proof tests.
REVLON COLORSTAY ONE-STROKE DEFINING EYELINER: BLACKEST BLACK
PRICE:- INR 490
STAYING POWER:- 7-8 HOURS
As the name tells everything, it is definitely the blackest of the black and it gives smooth and super black pigment eyeliner in just one stroke. The texture being so soft and smooth, it glides on the eyes easily and smoothly. This is my no.1 and favorite of favorites of all time. It doesn’t smudge at all. Totally waterproof and smudge-proof eyeliner. It stays on my waterline all day-smudgeproof.
COLORBAR I-GLIDE EYE PENCIL: BLACKOUT
PRICE:- INR 450
STAYING POWER:- 6-7 HOURS MIN.
This is a budget buy eyeliner. It has a gel-like buttery smooth texture/consistency. Glides on the eyelids and waterline effortlessly without any tugging and pulling. Highly pigmented eyeliner. It is totally smudge-proof and water-proof. This is my 2nd favorite eyeliner of all time and I am on my second pencil.
FACES MAGNETEYES KAJAL
PRICE:- INR 175
STAYING POWER:- 5 HOURS MIN.
Jet black colored eyeliner. It is a super affordable rectractable eyeliner. Claims that it can be used as kohl and eyeliner for daily use and bold look both. It has soft, smooth texture and glides on eyes evenly and easily.
COLORBAR JUST SMOKY KAJAL: JUST BLACK
PRICE:- INR 675
STAYING POWER:- 4-5 HOURS
It is an intense black eyeliner. Has a smudger brush at the backside of the pencil. It has gel-like consistency and sets down fast within 4-5mins of application. Although it needs tugging and pulling while applying it on the waterline, this eyeliner is a good one and worth every penny.
FACES LONG WEAR EYE PENCIL: SOLID BLACK
PRICE:- INR 249
STAYING POWER:- 5-6 HOURS
Intense black pigmented eyeliner. It has got soft, smooth and creamy texture. It is a super affordable, budget friendly eyeliner. The eyeliner sets into a waterproof and smudge-proof finish very quickly after application and doesn’t budge till removed.The only downside of this eyeliner is that it stings my eyes, Itried it testing 3-4 times but every time it stinged my eyes and i had to stop using it. Other than that this is an amazing eyeliner.
Here are some tests that i did on these eyeliners.
