With the mounds of makeup available these days, finding a product that you swear by isn’t always easy. For me, there’s one $6 liquid eyeliner from Walmart that I consider to be among the best, yet it’s entirely underrated.

Once I tried Hard Candy’s Marilyn Monroe Liquid Eyeliner, I never looked at other eyeliners the same. Yes, the classic beauty brand is back and available at Walmart! This eyeliner is of the creamiest, most seamless formulas that I’ve ever come across.

At $6 and change, the liner is super easy to create any kind of cat-eye. As someone who has long struggled to create the perfect lines on my hooded and creased eyes, this one is mess-proof. Great for beginners, the eyeliner has a short, but stiff bristle tip. This particular formula is so easy to apply that you can do it with one hand like I did here:

The liner is so underrated that it only has 34 ratings at Walmart. That said, there are some shoppers who are in on how great it truly is. One shopper explained that the liner doesn’t dry out like others. 

“This eyeliner is phenomenal!” they wrote. “l have never had an eyeliner that glided on so smoothly and equally. The brush is the perfect shape and texture. I even messed up my right eye it was able to fix it without removing anything. I’m here to order two more because like anything else that’s good, they’ll discontinue it.”

Another shopper also agreed that the eyeliner’s performance in the beauty world is flying under the radar. 

“Unexpected performance from this particular company’s product!” they wrote. “It reminds me of Kat Von D’s liners which I never thought could happen. The tip is fantastic and the black is actually black and controllable. The formula doesn’t expand like other tipped liners. A great dupe for $7. I plan on buying the other two next time I go!”

Another shopper put it simply: “[I] love this. It’s beautiful and glides on flawlessly.”

Your mouth and nose may be covered for the time being, but you can easily make your eyes to stand out with this accessible liquid eyeliner.
