    I Tried A Bunch Of Drugstore Eyeliners And Found A New Favorite

    Eye just really like affordable makeup.

    Hi, I'm Lauren! I'm a super-huge fan of inexpensive (but effective) makeup products, because 1) I lose stuff, 2) I have debt, and 3) Who DOESN'T love saving money?

    So I tested out some of the most popular liquid eyeliners (recommended to me by the beauty-department lady at Target AND all under $10) to see if my new eyeliner BFF is out there.

    The rules

    1. I will not wear any primer, so I can really test the staying power of each eyeliner.

    2. I will wear each eyeliner for the same amount of time.

    3. Obviously no fixing/wiping anything.

    4. I will wear these eyeliner only on days I will be indoors mostly and won't do any exercise. 😏

    Let's get this bang-for-your-buck thing started, shall we?
