Figuring out what eye makeup to wear is one of our biggest daily morning decisions (along with deciding whether it's a dark roast or an espresso day). Do we want a daring swipe of purple eyeliner or a sexy black cat eye? Regardless of the look we choose, we need the best eyeliners, from the perfect smudgy kohl to a precise, smudge-proof liquid liner, to get the job done.

See the best eyeliners under $10 now.

Unfortunately, we too often have days when we realize 20 minutes after an important meeting or date that the fabulous liner we applied is running down our faces. Smudged and smeared (in a bad way) eyes are a beauty disaster that needs to be avoided at all costs — but how much are you willing to spend for a great liner that doesn't budge? Some cost upwards of $58. If we had $58 we wouldn't give it to a pencil, no matter the pigmented brilliance.

So, can we get a great eyeliner without breaking the bank? According to our Total Beauty reviewers, the answer is yes. We've compiled their favorite gel, liquid, pencil, pen and waterproof eyeliners that cost less than $10. These cheap eyeliners don't smudge or disappear, but they also are easily removed with eye makeup remover. Our reviewers say the results from these drugstore liners are comparable to, if not better than, the leading department store brands. So, what are you waiting for? It's time to say goodbye to smudged raccoon eyes and having to reapply at noon, and hello to these eyeliners that are colorful, cheap and long lasting.
