Save or Splurge - Liquid Eyeliner

I would dread to know the exact amount of money I have spent on liquid eye liner over the years, but I'm guessing it is an unhealthy and silly amount. But over the years, I have learnt that liquid eye liner really is not worth splurging on.

I've had every type of liquid eye liner, from the foam applicator, to the brush tip, to the pen, ranging in price from a few quid, to a small chunk of my monthly wage. But the truth about liquid eye liner is, all we want is an easy to use applicator and great colour pay off and who says this has to cost the earth?

My current two favourite liquid eyeliner's are the Urban Decay 24/7 liquid eyeliner and the Natural Collection liquid eyeliner, ranging in price from £14 to £1.99. The brushes on both these eyeliner's are absolutely identical, and are both as easy to use as the other, however the differences start in the colour pay off. When using the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner I have to apply 2-3 coats depending on how black I want my eyeliner, however when I use the Natural Collection eyeliner one coat and I'm I have the blackest line ever.

I know it feels amazing to have a luxury product, trust me I know, but the cold hard truth is there are some products that you simply do not need to own a luxury version of. If only I'd have known then what I know now, I would have saved myself a pretty penny.
