7 Under $7: Eyes

I've decided to start a new series where I will seek out good quality products that cost under $7 for different areas of your face. While I do understand the need to splurge for certain things once in awhile, I also feel you can find great inexpensive alternatives. I will admit that originally this was suppose to be a 5 under $5, however I discovered many of my favorites ended up being $6.99 so I decided to adjust and now I am able to share two more products for the sake of keeping the repetition alive. Obviously I am omitting taxes and these are based off prices either that I've seen in my local store or found online the $7 applies to the price you would see on the tag.

1. Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil is around $2.50 and found in Walgreens and I think Kmart. This is an amazing pencil, so creamy and darkly pigmented it really does look like a liquid liner except with the better control of a pencil. They come in six different colors and I will definitely be headed back to the store to pick up some new colors.
2. Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Nude retails for around $4.50 and can be found in Ulta, CVS and other drugstores. In particular I am highlighting the one in the shade Nude because it is the perfect waterliner, it is truly waterproof and works well to open up your eye in this shade.
3. Maybelline Color Tattoo is around $6.99 you can definitely find them for cheaper. The colors are gorgeous, highly pigmented cream shadows that have a great staying power and are virtually creaseless. They work great worn or alone or even as a base for other colors.
4. CoverGirl Clump Crusher is a little pricier but I found it at Target for $6.99 so that fits with the under $7 deal. I love this mascara, it is very comparable to higher end products and as the name implies, clumps are near impossible to achieve with this. While I do not find it volumizing like the package promise, it is great for defining and curling your lashes.
5. Maybelline Falsies I found at Target for $5.99 and it is a great volumizing formula. These make my lashes look so thick and full it is amazing. There is a tendency for clumps sometimes so just be careful when applying.
6. L'Oreal Infallible Eyeliner is definitely a stretch, it normally retails for $8.50 however I found it online for $5.99 but I adore this eyeliner and just had to include it anyways. I have fairly watery eyes due to a combination of contact lenses and permenant allergies, so I've tried a lot of different liners for my lower lashline. This stuff blows everything else out of the water because it is seriously unsmudgeable for the whole day. No amount of moisture, oil or blinking can get this stuff to travel anywhere.
7. Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencils are around $4.50 and come in a bunch of colors. There are beautiful colors that are super blendable and very creamy. A great trick is using the color Milk as an amazing tacky base for other shadows to really make the colors pop.

What are some of your favorite inexpensive eye products?
