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.

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.

Not my favorite
Sampled

For the price, this just isn't my favorite liquid eye liner. The final, dry color is an intense black, but it has an oddly shiny finish. The felt tip applicator makes for easy line drawing, but the wet liner will bleed into any little wrinkle and has a tendency to look patchy before drying. It is amazingly waterproof, though, and stands up to both rain and tears (don't ask). Micellar water is a must for removing this stuff.

Nice but not great

Nice application but seemed almost faded in color. Like what I am using better

Average Eyeliner
Sampled

This product is average to me. I don't use eyeliner very often. When I do, I already have a product I like better. I use Maybelline Stiletto eyeliner which is similar. I like the Maybelline eyeliner better because the tip is more flexible and the product is a little thicker. I thought the Stila eyeliner was very thin and bled and also didn't leave any room for error due to an unsteady hand.

Okay

This was your basic liquid eyeliner. I have used this brand before and liked it. It did not stay on as long as the last liquid eyeliner I received last month. I would like to get it in a different color other than black.
