Nikki Glaser may be riding high off of her hilarious set on Netflix’s The Roast of Tom Brady and her new HBO special Someday You’ll Die, but all that success doesn’t mean she’s above affordable beauty products. In a wide-ranging list of her favorite things shared with The Strategist, Glaser spilled two $11 and under beauty products she can’t live without, including an eyeliner that’s the closest she’s come to the “perfect Taylor Swift wing.”

“I’ve spent so much on eyeliners trying to get that perfect Taylor Swift wing that looks like a deep black and doesn’t get kind of watery,” the comedian explains. “I discovered this when I was doing stand-up in Europe. I needed a new eyeliner, and so I went into a store and just picked this one out.” The “this” Glaser refers to is Catrice Cosmetics’ Calligraph Pro Precise 24H Waterproof Matte Liner. “This one just has a really great black line, and it lasts a long time.”

Unfortunately, that exact eyeliner isn’t available, but the brand does offer the near-identical, non-waterproof Calligraph Pro Precise 20H Matte Liner ($5). The formula features the same deep black matte finish with a precise tip for a foolproof cat-eye that lasts up to 20 hours and is easy to remove. Shoppers call it “very dark” with “no chalking” and “smooth lines.”

Glaser’s other budget-friendly favorite is The Ordinary’s 100% Plant-Derived Squalane ($10.40) and she gives high praise. “I’m obsessed with this. I have been on it for about seven years. My face just eats every moisturizer no matter how moisturizing it claims to be. This gives the moisture of an oil without the greasiness. I literally can’t live without it. I was gatekeeping for a while because I thought it might go away, but I’m pretty certain it won’t so I’m ready to tell people about it.”

Glaser’s other beauty mentions go to the under-$40 Vita Liberata Body Blur Leg and Body Makeup (“It stays on a lot more than you might think it would, and it looks flawless: You can have Barbie-like legs.”) and the viral Solawave 4-in-1 Red Light Therapy Wand ($169), which Glaser says “definitely soothes [her] skin.”
