I have finally found an eyeliner that stays put on my oily lids. I've tried pencils, gels, eyeshadow and solution. All of those would look great at first but in a few hours there would be a stamp of liner on my lids. This pen style liner is fantastic. It is so easy to apply and sticks all day. I purchased dark brown to try it, and will be picking it up in black as well. Expensive, but worth it to me as it truly does stay in place.
I have really strange eyelids: The eyelids themselves are quite oily throughout the day, but the skin around my eyelids is very dry. Plus, I have year-round allergies, so my eyes are constantly watering. I pretty much gave up on winged eyeliner because immediately after creating a perfect flick (with gel or liquid or whatever), my weepy eyes would erase my hard work. I ordered this product for a wedding in the summer, when I knew I would need something that would survive allergy tears, actual tears, and scorching July temperatures. That being said, I have found my HG liquid eyeliner. Holy cow. Unless I actually rub at my eyes, this stuff won't budge. And for me, that's pretty darn impressive. Is it a little pricey? Of course. But do I personally think it's worth it? YES. I can wear my eyeliner the way I WANT to, rather than the way I HAVE to. (Plus, I ordered it in the dark brown shade because I have little to no self control. Whoops.)
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this eyeliner! It's the first liquid eyeliner I have ever used and I definitely don't plan on changing any time soon. It is sometimes difficult to put on, but, like I said, it's the first liquid eyeliner I've ever used. It does not smudge or wear off at all and it is very easy to get off. You can also decide how much you want to put on, whether it be a thin line or a thick line.
I have black and moss and I just love these. They do stay on all day, even on my oily eyes. Most eyeliners that claim to be waterproof can't make it to lunch on my eyes. I have severe seasonal allergies, and I can rely on this as long as I don't rub my eyes too hard. Also love the long, tapered felt tip, which makes application smooth and easy. I wish they made this in burgundy but both moss and black work great on hazel eyes.
I bought Moss and it was dried out - went to return it and picked up black instead. I always test waterproof makeup in a hot yoga class. If it survives, winner! Stila waterproof eyeliner rubbed off on the inner corners of both eyes and there was some smudging. YSL pot eyeliner is better and Iluminaire eye liner also holds up. I would not purchase again as there are other waterproof eyeliners that are WATERPROOF.
Very black and lasts all day without smudging.
The brush requires a steady hand, it isn't as easy to control as smashbox's limitless liquid eyeliner. The formula is a little too wet, making it easy to mess up. I wish it were matte, but otherwise...its the blackest out there.
One of my absoultute favorites in my makeup drawer. This has been my most loved and used eyeliner ever. It is easy to apply with the felt tip and with a little bit of shadow and a touch of UDPP it really does stay all day. I have it in black. I think the price is reasonable I bought it at the end of October and we are still going strong! Much prefer this to Mac, Sonia Kashnuk, elf, and Milani
My only complaint for this eyeliner is the brush isn't as firm as I would like. The pigmentation is fantastic, and if you have a steady hand the brush shouldn't be a huge problem.
This eyeliner is great and really does what it says.
It has rich pigment and stays on for hours.
The applicator is pointy and spongy.
The only reason I gave it 4 lippies instead of 5 is that the finish has a sheen that i hate, i am more into matte eyeliners but that is just my personal preference.
Overall it is a great choice if you want an eyeliner that stays on forever and I do recommend it.
I bought mine when I travelled to the UK, unfortunately Stila is not available in my country (Greece) otherwise I would have bought it again (and probably cover the sheen with some matte black powder)
New favourite eyeliner, so pigmented, lasts forever, fine tip. This is the best eyeliner. I don't know if I will ever switch.
