MAC Liquidlast Liner Dupe

My HG eyeliner is MAC's Liquidlast Liner in Point Black.  It has been the only eyeliner that I've tried that was truly waterproof, sweat proof, smudge proof, and long lasting....until now.
I was researching dupes for popular name brand products and I came across one that was too good to be true, a dupe for my prized $17.50 eyeliner for only $6.49.  Last night, I went to my nearest Walgreens and purchased it, Milani Infinite Liquid Eyeliner in Black.
I tried it this morning and I was more than happy with it.  It seems like it is the same formula as my Liquidlast!  In some aspects, it's even better than Liquidlast.  Milani Inifinite comes in a 5mL container whereas MAC Liquidlast comes in a 2.5mL container.  Thats double the product for about 1/3 of the price!  It isn't as gooey as Liquidlast either.

It looks as if the Milani tip is sharper but I just wiped off more product than I did from the MAC brush.  They are almost if not, identical.

(Sorry for the bad quality of the swatches.  My camera died and I had to use my photobooth!)

Neither of them budged at all!

    I'm not much of a fan of pencil liners because they smear and such but I've been looking for something to line my upper waterline so maybe I'll give it a try!

  5. i love liquid liners too. it's fun to experiment different looks with them. thanks for sharing this miko! :)

    I totally agree! You can do so much more with liquid liners.(:

  7. I tried the gold color from Milani, the applicator is kinda hard to control...but that was two years ago LOL they stay on pretty good!
