We all need a good lip liner whether you like to over-draw your lips to make them look a little plumper or just like to have an outline before lipstick. Lip liners have been all the rage, especially since a special Jenner created her Lip Kits (but the kits can be pricey). If you want something that will not only do the job but will have you looking amazing without costing a fortune… look no further. We have gathered all of our favorite lip liners that are not only great quality but affordable too! Here you’ll find our list for the best lip liners under $10 at Ulta!



NYX has quite a few different lip liner collections available, which gives you options to find which applicator and finish are best for your lips. First is their classic Slip Lip Pencil Lip Liner. This liner has a creamy, hydrating formula that is easy to blend and long-lasting. It comes in a variety of different colors, with different shades of pinks, nudes, and purples.

Similar to this one is their Suede Matte Lip Liner Pencil. It is a velvety soft lip pencil that helps plump your lips. Both pencils cost $4 at Ulta.

NYX also offers a waterproof pencil for $8 called Slide On Lip Pencil. When you apply this waterproof formula, it provides a rich, matte color to your lips that is long-lasting.
