One of our favorite eyeliners on the market is Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner ($25). If you haven’t tried this eyeliner yet–you definitely should. Its long-lasting, opaque pigmented formula is perfect for all-day wear, taking you from day to night flawlessly. Not to mention its fine-tip felt pen that is perfect for creating the sharpest cat eye look ever.

If you’re a huge fan of artist’s makeup line, you’ll also be happy to hear that Kat Von D is releasing a new liner: Kat Von D Beauty Lash Liner, a liquid eyeliner formula for your waterline. Finally!

But, one of the biggest drawbacks to Kat Von D’s tattoo liner is its price. $25 may not seem like a big deal to some people, but if you’re a daily eyeliner user, you know how quickly this product can dry out. If you’re lucky and take care of this liner like a newborn child, it can last you up to three weeks, at most. Although this eyeliner has an amazing application and formula, not all of us have the time or money to keep running back and forth to Sephora to buy another one.

So, instead of wasting away your paycheck, use your pocket change to buy a cheaper drugstore dupe to Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner. These dupes are just as amazing and even longer-lasting, than Von D’s pricey liner. Trust us–you’ll be falling head over heels in love with these drugstore dupes in no time.

This applicator is thin and fine like Kat Von D’s applicator and glides on just as smoothly. This versatile liner can help you create anything from an everyday look to big dramatic cat eyes, instantly. What’s so special about this eyeliner is that the tip is much finer than Kat Von D’s more expensive version. This allows you to have more control of how fine the line will be. For less than half of the price, we’ll gladly stock up on this liner instead. It’s also long-lasting so you won’t have to worry about reapplying or fixing any mid-day smudges from all-day wear.

NYX is always our go-to brand for an inexpensive good dupe. Their Epic Ink Eyeliner is no exception. This product will not disappoint. The eyeliner is precise, fine-tipped, and easy to hold while applying for a perfect line every time. The applicator tip is identical to Kat Von D’s eyeliner and the formula is basically the same, as well. Another major benefit to this eyeliner is that it has twice as much product in it as its pricier counterpart. That means this eyeliner will definitely last longer than Kat Von D’s without drying out. You can draw and correct your lines as much as you please. If you ever need more, it only costs $8 to get a new one. Score!

Rimmel is a drugstore brand that is known for its top quality products at ridiculously low prices. Rimmel Wonderwing Eyeliner gives Kat Von D’s eyeliner a run for its money. Seriously–this liner is less than $6. You can’t beat that! This eyeliner has that fine tip that you know and love and contains over double the amount of product in it, compared to Von D’s. Its pigment is as dark as night and is guaranteed to last 24 hours (if you so choose to leave it on that long). Dare to make bold flicks, thin accents, dramatic cat eyes, or whatever else your little heart desires with this liner, It’ll last all day long, no matter how watery your eyes get.
