Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

I've always wanted to be the girl with the amazing eyeliner and overall perfect make up.   A few years ago I really enjoyed MACs Fluidline Gel Liner pair with a random eyeliner brush.  It was really easy to use but I found that eyeliner brushes did not get me the thin line I think I need (I really think that I do not suit a thicker line.)

I'd pretty much given up on my eyeliner dreams and stopped buying them, I just figured it was something that I was not meant to be able to do.  It was only when I bought a set of Sephora Favorites in the States last October that I decided to try again with one of the products inside which was Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner.


I've heard a lot about this eyeliner and that it's meant to be amazing at getting a really precise line so I was really keen to try it out.  I distinctly remember Miss Glamorazzi on from You Tube talking about it.

My eyeliner is in 'carbon black' which is incredibly black and pigmented.  For some reason though, I did notice in certain areas it appeared a little glossy/like I hadn't applied it to the area properly, no matter how many times I went over it.  In the end I had to dab on a little black eyeshadow to make it more of a matte finish. 

 

The pen is so fine that it draws a perfect precise line without dragging my skin at all.  As I'm heading towards thirty my eyelids are not exactly perfectly smooth so this is definitely an important point for me.  

The lasting power is phenomenal.  I'd say it probably took around thirty seconds to dry and once it was done it didn't smudge or budge at all until I was removing it. 

The cap has a sort of spring-loaded mechanism which pushes back at you until it's completely closed so that you will always know that it's definitely on properly.


Overall I think this eyeliner is amazing.  It's great if you have had previous problems with eyeliners not gliding smoothly across your lid.  I love that I can trust it to last all day without transferring elsewhere or fading and I actually think the price is pretty reasonable as well.  This is definitely one to check out!
