Made my eyes hurt
Purchased

I don't know what was in this, but it gave me some sort of reaction. Would not recommend for sensitive eyes. Also, the product went on smoothly enough but wasn't very thick. I found parts of my line came off throughout the day.

Started out great, but...

This liner came with the highest ratings and I had high hopes for it. I chose the brown color. The liner is easy to use with a soft tip for flexibility and no tugging on the lid area. The liner did not budge on my lid area, but at the outer eye where I wing out the liner never held. Unfortunately, it did not ever make it past about 4 hours. The other downside was that the liner dried up quite quickly. After about 1 & 1/2 months. In similar products, I have used they normally last quite a bit longer. For the price and the hype I expected more.

Disappointed

All I had heard were rave reviews about this product so I decided to try it. I have fairly oily eyelids and unfortunately I found that it tends to flake off extremely quickly on me. It's super easy to use and I love the preciseness of the brush but I wish it lasted longer on me :(

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.

Loved it and hate it
Purchased

I love how this product glides on. I bought the bronze color and it is so light, but I also purchase the brown. I like dark and dramatic. The bronze color did nothing and the brown was just okay. I did like mixing the bronze with the brown, really cool effect. My biggest complaint was that the product didn't last very long. So love how it glides and stayed but hated it because it went too fast.

Sticky
Purchased

I thought I was going to love this...it went on beautifully and the color was perfect! But midway through my day my eyes began to feel sticky, every time I blinked! Once I got myself to a mirror I noticed that the eyeliner was the issue to blame for my sticky lids, I had brown eyeliner all over my upper lids. Mind you I make a small thin line on my upper lids, so I can't figure out why this is happening, I've even tried a primer to keep it from moving!
