Physicians Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum

A lot of bloggers have mentioned this eyeliner as the “drugstore dupe” for the Dolly Wink liquid liner so of course I had to try it! It’s a pen-style brush-tip liquid liner that costs around $10 (the most affordable of its kind to my knowledge). Let’s see if it lives up to the hype.

Packaging:

  • I really like the silver packaging; it stands out from all the typical black packaging for liquid liners.
  • The cap has a little spring inside, just like that of Stila and Kat Von D liquid liners
  • It’s slightly longer and wider than the Stila, Kat Von D, Dolly Wink, and K-Palette liquid liners
  • My favorite feature: brush tip is precise, does not bleed - very similar tip to K-Palette

Pigmentation & Formula:

  • It’s hard to tell from the swatches above but this eyeliner is definitely not as pigmented as the Stila eyeliner. On the eye, the color looks even lighter.
  • Pigmentation is closest to K-Palette (Dolly Wink’s pigmentation is in between K-Palette and Stila - sorry I don’t have a DW liner on hand for swatch comparison)
  • With a primer: fades after 8 hours and smudges after 3 hours hooded eyelids (in general, works well for oily lids but not so much for hooded lids)
  • The formula seems a bit watery even if I shake it a lot before application
  • It is waterproof (without rubbing), but after rubbing it twice, it starts to come off
  • As for the lash serum claim, I personally can’t tell a significant difference because I don’t use this eyeliner every single day.

As I’ve said before, the Physicians Formula Eye Booster is much more similar to the K-Palette 1-Day Tattoo Liner than the Dolly Wink Liquid Liner. It is definitely more accessible and affordable than the Japanese liquid liners. I think this eyeliner works just fine for everyday purposes unless strong pigmentation matters a lot to you.

This product is available at: Ulta, drugstore.com, and your local drugstores
