Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner Review

Wednesday, 17 Jan 2018

The first few times I tried the Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner on my waterline, my eyes would not stop tearing! I still have no idea what caused it, but luckily I gave it a second chance (the things we do for beauty) a few days later because I loved the pigmentation and feel of the liners, and thankfully it didn’t happen again. Some of these have even become my most used liners.

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner Review and Swatches

Swatches from top-bottom:

Angelfish- Rose Gold/Champagne Shimmer

Starfish- Olive Green/Gold Shimmer

Black Amethyst- Matte Black Purple

Damsel- Matte Black Brown

Midnight Blue- Matte Deep Navy

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner

As you can see from the swacthes, most of these are super-pigmented, aside from Midnight Blue, which was a bit of a disappointment. They all apply smoothly, don’t drag at the skin, don’t smudge and last all day, although I do find the matte shades apply more smoothly than the shimmer shades. My favourite has got to be Damsel to line my waterline, and Angelfish in the inner corners of my eyes to brighten the area.

  7. Stila have definitely aced the game when it comes to making long-lasting eyeliners! I’ve tried their liquid stay all day eyeliner and oh my did it last, so I definitely need to try these ones out. I usually avoid stick eyeliners because they don’t last but these look amazing!

      I still haven’t tried their liquid one, even though it has been on my wishlist for ages!
