One of our favorite eyeliners on the market is Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner ($20). It’s long lasting, opaque pigmented formula is perfect for all-day wear, and it’s fine tip felt pen is perfect for creating the sharpest cat eye look. But, one of the biggest drawbacks for this eyeliner is it’s price. $20 may seem like not a big deal, but if you’re a daily eyeliner user, you know how quickly this eyeliner can dry out. If you’re lucky and take care of this liner like a newborn child, it will last you at most three weeks. Although this liner has an amazing application and formula, we just don’t have the time or money to keep running back and forth to Sephora for another one. So, instead of wasting away your paycheck, use your pocket change to buy a cheaper drugstore dupe. These dupes are just as amazing, and even longer-lasting, than Kat Von D’s pricey liner. Believe 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. It’s versatile to create an everyday wear look, or to make big, dramatic cat eyes. What’s special about this eyeliner is that the tip is much finer than the more expensive Kat Von D version, which allows you to have more control of how fine the line will be. And 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 any smudging from all-day wear.
NYX is always our go-to brand for any good dupe, and their Epic Ink eyeliner will definitely not disappoint. This 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 it’s pricier counterpart. So, this eyeliner will definitely last longer than Kat Von D’s without drying out. Feel free to draw and correct your lines as much as you please, because this eyeliner takes almost twice as long to run out. And if you ever need more, it’s only $8 to get a new one!
