Eyeliners: Comparisons & Dupes

Eyeliners: Comparisons & Dupes

Make sure you haven’t missed any of our eyeliner comparison posts–here is a roundup of what we’ve done! The series is now over, but I hope you enjoyed it and find it useful in the future.


Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Hi Christine,

I love all of the swatches, first of all! Second, you mentioned a new spatula and palette at the MAC stores; could you give us the price on those?

Thanks! 😀

No problem, I have been wanting them for a while, but there are no Pro stores near where I live. People are selling them on Ebay for $25 and up per piece. Thanks for giving me a rough idea of what you paid. 🙂

i love this series of reviews!

do you think the chromaline liners (specifically black black) are firm enough to do a thin line?

if not, do you have any other suggestions of good black eyeliners that do a good thin line?

thank you christine!

Christine, do these swatches comprise the whole of your collection? Or did you leave out products that were limited edition? (I noticed MAC’s pearlglides were missing, as well as some kohl power pencils that I have, all from the last year or so). I totally understand your reasoning if you were keeping it that way, and you might have said it at one point and I missed it!

This page is definitely getting bookmarked for future reference! Thanks so much for putting this together!

I just read in one of the posts where you said you were trying not to include LE shades – should have done a little more research before asking, sorry Christine!
