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.

Best on the Market!

I have tried about every eyeliner out there and this is by far my favorite. The liner smudges perfectly and goes on so smoothly. Highly recommend!

Broke within a month

The eyeliner was good, it went on smoothly and stayed put for a good amount of time. I really liked the twisting part so that there was no worry about sharpening.

However, in less than a month either it broke or it ran out - and I don't use that much eyeliner. I tried what I could to fix it, but it was unusable. I started using the stila waterproof eyeliner without the twist-up and I'm very happy with it.

Definitely Holds, but...

This eyeliner definitely stays put all day, and it's certainly waterproof as it's hard to wash off. But what I really dislike about it is how 'unsmudgeable' it is. Once you put it on, it's on. You can't get a smoky eye look with this liner unless you smudge eyeshadow overtop of it.

Stayed put well. Thought the color I got did not work well with my complexion.

Very clean lines

I loved this product. It really stays on all day long and glides on easily. I would recommend this eyeliner highly!

doesn't last

Great colors, but I am very disappointed that all of the Stila smudge sticks I have (5) no longer function properly (after a couple of months). Just tossed them all out! They break and/or jam when one is twisting them up to get more product. From now on I am going to use the Urban Decay 24/7 as my go-to liner.

Favorite liner

I think the lionfish is maybe the best eyeliner color I've used, because it's got just this hint of plum to the brown that adds something extra. I find it works both with nude shadows, AND deep berries and plums. Versatile.

Pretty fantastic

Any good eyeliner needs to be waterproof, and this stuff is the best. After a coat of primer, I swipe this stuff on, sometimes sweeping it into a cat eye, other times simply lining my upper waterline. It doesn't move! My skin is pretty oily, especially my eyelids for some reason. Most liners rub off after a couple of hours, but Stila made this stuff to last. The pigmentation is really concentrated too, so you don't really need a thick coat of it. Also, it doesn't take an army to remove this liner. I just use makeup removing wipes, and it gets most of it off without a fight. This is my new favorite liner.

Now I LOVE colored eyeliner

Received the blue and then ordered the olive & purple. These colored eye liners freshen up my standard make-up routine.
