This multitasking eyeliner can be used as a traditional pencil liner or worn as an eye shadow when you smudge the formula with your fingers. The fine tip contains moisturizing ingredients, so it won't skip or pull when applying.

The only eyeliner I use!

These eyeliners by stila are so incredible, once you try them you'll never go back! The range of colors is awesome, I own the shades Stingray, Damsel, Spice, and Lionfish (as I prefer neutral eyes). Because these are waterproof, they are perfect for tight lining and water lining. True to the name, these will smudge within the first few seconds to create a sultry, blurred eyeliner effect if that is your preference. Plus, these last 8 months to a year with daily use. At $20, these eyeliners are so worth it!

CAUTION: The eyeliner does NOT retract so don't ever twist the whole stick up. This has been a problem for some, so I thought I would mention it.

I love this eyeliner! Smooth, long lasting and the color is perfect!

The violet eyeliner is the perfect color for my green eyes. It goes on smoothly and is truly long-wearing.

Coming back to purchase

I can't remember whether I received the Lionfish liner in a box or if I purchased it the first time but I'm back to buy another. I don't seem to have the problems with this that other reviewers have. It's not runny on my skin at all, it doesn't even get in the crease of my lid right after application. I find that it goes on very smoothly and the copper has just the right amount of shimmer to be pretty but not juvenile. I have blue-green eyes and this color really makes them pop. I've been out of this liner for about two weeks now and I was trying to get by because I hate paying this much for makeup but it really is a great liner and I've been disappointed by my other liners since this one ran out. I'm buying a replacement of the Lionfish color I ran out of and trying the dark gray for the first time.

Great eyeliner

The brown color is so great for making a smokey eye, or wearing on its own. I don't know how Stila does it, but it lasts allll day. For perspective, I have oily skin, live in a humid climate and usually have watery eyes. This liners looks great at the end of the day despite all this.

Favorite Stick Liner

I can’t say enough about these liners. They are by far the best pencil type eyeliners I’ve ever used. So happy to see these in the shop

Perfect for redheads!!

Got this in Lionfish and the coppery brown was perfect for my naturally deep red hair and pale complexion. Smooth to apply, doesn't smudge. This is the best eye liner I've ever used!

Furious!

Packaging is insanely ridiculous! After a lot of research, I discovered that you have to push the top down and twist at the same time like a child-proof medicine container. If you roll up too much, there is no way to roll it back down. And, it breaks off incredibly easy! The product is unimpressive as well. It might be waterproof but that doesn't matter when it smudges down to your cheeks and up to your forehead. I know it states "smudgeable" but it never sets! HATE THIS PRODUCT!!!

Not impressed.

I bought this in full-size going off the reviews, but I have to say I'm not impressed. The cap does come off too easily and then dries out the liner, making it hard to put on or it breaks. It doesn't smudge that easily, which is good, but I don't really like the lines it makes due to it drying out. Wouldn't get again.

Stays Put

This eyeliner in black is amazing. It's a dark black and stays in place all day. I wouldn't say it was completely waterproof, but it does better than most I've used.

Great longevity

I wore the Mint Julip color a couple seasons back. It lasted all day long (I don't reapply makeup) and I got tons of complements. Totally impressed!!
