Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

Don’t fear the liquid. stila’s genius liner turns anyone into a beauty pro. It gets rid of the complication and mess of regular liquid liner by swapping out the usual brush for a marker-style tip. All of a sudden, it’s easy to get a smooth line, and because it’s waterproof, it won’t budge even on the hottest days.

Not smudge proof at all
Purchased

I got this in the Moss color. It is very pigmented and a lovely color.

I like the application. It's easy to use.

I did not use primer and the color leaked out instead of staying in my perfect line! To be fair, I did not try it with primer.

The main reason I'm only giving it two stars is because I am looking for a smudge-proof and water-proof liner. This smudged after just two hours of wear. By the end of the day (about 7 hours of wear) I literally had no liner left at all. I wasn't even out doing anything, just chilling at home. Not worth it for the money.

Not smooth

This product was not smooth and did not glide over the eye nicely. The tip became dry quickly (within seconds) and became useless. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE
Purchased

I purchased this from Birchbox and the item received did not flow properly from the tip, only the base. I informed them of this and they sent a replacement. The replacement had the exact same problem. I've spoken with others on beauty forums and they complain of the same issue.

There is no excuse for this type of product in this price range to be such an utter and complete failure. This isn't the first time I've been disappointed with Stila products, but it is definitely the last time. I'm done with this brand.

Pros:
Definitely stayed on well the few times I could manage to make my eyeliner look vaguely presentable, no thanks to the terrible applicator. This 'pro' is the only reason it's getting 2 stars instead of 1.

Cons:
Everything else.

Don't walk away from this liner. RUN.

Not enough use

Like other reviewers, I feel this is too thick. I got maybe 5 uses out of it. I would not recommend it. There are many other eyeliners out there.

Not so great
Purchased

I really expected to love this, and I don't. Halfway through the day, I find it all under my eye and on my lid. I used to like it more, but it seems to have gotten more liquid-y. Not a fan.

Great product; not for me
Sampled

This is nice and all, but I can't do the winged look. This product hasn't gotten any use from me, sadly, and is a waste. I prefer non-liquid eyeliners. Sucks I keep getting sent these eyeliners that I can't use.

Not impressed
Sampled

This eyeliner did not do the job for me after 3 uses. It could be due to the sample size I received. The liner wasn't consistent throughout use.

Wasn’t black enough

This stayed on, but it seemed to dull, turning into dark gray.

It's not you it's me

I love Stila products and use eyeliner. While this product proves to be amazing I am just not proficient with liquid eye liner.
