Best Walmart Eyeliners (7 Eyeliners To Keep An Eye Open For)

If you have greasy or sweaty eyelids, you know a good eyeliner is worth its weight in gold. For some of us, even with primer and setting spray, the liner can end up down our faces.

Luckily, Walmart carries a plethora of worthy drugstore brands in various colors, formulas, and styles, whether you’re looking for a natural enhancement or big-time drama. Here are seven of the best Walmart eyeliners to keep an eye open for on your next shopping trip!

Best Walmart Eyeliners In [currentyear]

1. NYX Professional Makeup Epic Wear Liner Sticks

Most customers find these NYX Epic Wear eyeliner sticks fantastic.

That said, they truly do last, without smears or smudges or fading, from the start of the day to the end, even if you hit the gym or stay out all night with friends.

Also, the entire line includes 28 shades, and several people own ten or 11 to maintain variety. Moreover, the colors are super vibrant and highly pigmented.

Further, the trick to these liner sticks is to apply and then let them sit for a minute, which is enough time for them to hold onto your skin, so they last.

One other thing to note; though the material of the pencil (aside from the color part) doesn’t seem like it, they can be sharpened.

With that, the best sharpener for these is the one from the same brand.

2. Wet N Wild Mega Last Breakup-Proof Retractable Eyeliner

The wet n wild brand does not get the attention it deserves, and this long-lasting eyeliner is right up there with the best of them for a fraction of the price.

That said, the concept behind it is that no matter what happens – particularly a bad break-up – you can at least count on your eyeliner to stay where you need it to.

Even in the hottest weather, expect up to 16 hours of smudge and smear-proof wear.

Also, since pencil sharpeners can be such a mess, wet n wild has made this eyeliner fuss-free retractable, so you can just twist the color up when you need it and down when you don’t.

Lastly, there are only three colors to choose from, and the pencils cost just $1.98 at Walmart.

3. Maybelline Eyestudio Hyper Easy Liquid Eyeliner

The trouble with pencil eyeliners, particularly the bad ones, is that the crayon can sometimes stick and jag when you’re trying to draw an even line across your lid.

The result? A less-than-perfect liner line.

Hence, Maybelline concocted this Eyestudio Hyper Easy Liquid Liner, with its never-needing-sharpening precise point that flexes with your skin and doesn’t interrupt.

Further, the chic-looking tube is hexagonal, giving you a better grip on the body for more control as you draw your lines or create perfect wings.

After application, you have up to 24 hours of wear or until you wipe it with makeup remover – whichever comes first.

Fortunately, you can pick up the Hyper Easy in Pitch Black or Pitch Brown for just $6.98 at Walmart.

4. L’Oreal Paris Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid

Liquid eyeliner is dispensed in a precise felt tip with this L’Oreal Paris Lineur Intense, a hyper-pigmented product for a super-dramatic and room-stopping look.

Also, the felt tip has some “give,” meaning it can glide over any bumps or texture on your eyelids for a smooth, perfect line every time.

Moreover, the liner stays put for up to eight hours, and it’s even suitable for people with sensitive eyes or contact lenses.

Additionally, you can pick up a tube of this lush, black liner for $8.47 from Walmart.

5. Maybelline New York Unstoppable

This stay-put eyeliner mechanical pencil is waterproof and smudge-resistant, and the tip is self-sharpening, so you never have to worry about it getting dull.

With that, that’s important if a cat-eye liner is your thing because you need those sharp tips to create precise, flawless angles.

Despite not coming off in the rain or by the pool, you can use a simple make-up remover or micellar water and a cotton pad, and it will swipe right away.

Further, one customer commented on Walmart’s product page, “Been amazingly surprised by their quality pencils. They are really better than expensive ones.”

Moreover, you can pick from six high-pigment colors, including the very popular espresso (a deep brown) and fun shades like sapphire and jade.

Finally, you can take these home from Walmart for just $6.48 each.

6. Revlon Colorstay 2-In-1 Angled Kajal Eyeliner

Did you know that eyeliner has technically been in use for thousands of years?

There is evidence that approximately 5,000 years ago, women were darkening their eyelids and lower lids with kohl or kajal.

With that, Revlon Colorstay 2-in-1 Angled Kajal celebrates that gorgeous tradition with a double-sided eyeliner pen in four colors.

Moreover, each end features an angled brush (one side is thinner and the other thicker; your choice!) that helps you glide the ultra-pigmented color on.

Further, it’s available in Onyx, Fig, Evergreen and Graphite, and ranges in price on between $6.58 and $9.99.

7. Milani Stay Put Matte Eyeliner

Waterproof and sweat-resistant, this eyeliner from Milani stays put up to 17 hours.

Not only that, where some eyeliners are shiny, glossy, or even sparkly, this is a true matte color – no shine, no weird catching the light.

Also, the super-fine felt applicator tip makes winged looks a snap and makes applying a single, unbroken line a piece of cake.

Fortunately, you can get this matte eyeliner from Walmart for just $6.97.
