I LOVE LOVE LOVE this liner! It is a very nice felt tip liquid eyeliner. Because it tapers into a nice and thin tip, applying this liner is super easy, especially when I'm applying it in the inner corner of my eyes where I want the line to be nice and thin. This makes creating a cat line so easy and smooth. This liner is SUPER easy to apply and each eye just takes a couple of seconds to do.

I haven't had this product for very long, so I can't say how well this will hold up. This product is kinda pricey ($20) but it is well worth it! I have oily lids so usually products start to slide off of my face and go into the corners of my eyes as the day goes on. This eyeliner doesn't budge the entire day. It applies very evenly and has a nice dark black shiny finish. It dries pretty quickly (within 10-20 seconds give or take) and is just heaven. The only way that it even comes off is when I want to, and that is when I use makeup remover at night (I use Maybelline Clean Express makeup remover). I will definitely repurchase.

One tip that I have for liquid eyeliner pens is to store them upside down to prevent the tip from drying out.

I'm on my second tube, its my go to liquid eyeliner.

It has a very thick wand and dispenses color easily on your lid (unless its dries out, which btw took about 4 months for me with daily use) . I love the ultra thick eyeliner look and this makes it incredibly easy. It takes a minute to set, so be careful about that. It lasts a LONG time, meaning that is a little hard to take off at the end of the day with an oil based remover and whatnot.

The only things I don't exactly like is the finish and how it puts up with heat. The finish is quite shiny, but is easily fixed if you put black shadow over it so its pretty minor. However, if you live in hot climates this might melt on you! I visited Universal in Florida and had this eyeliner on in 80 degree weather and it literally melted down my face, not from water or anything. So, I took off a lippie for that.

Overall, very practical for everyday use and school. :)

I really like this product. It's easy and quick to use- it's actually hard to make a mistake with it! I thought it would be difficult to remove but it just washes off in the shower and doesn't sting my eyes. I just wish the actual pen was a different colour instead of black so I can find it easier amongst everything else!

I have been struggling to find the perfect eyeliner that stays in place despite the humidity and 100 plus degree Summer weather in Texas. I have tried brands from drugstore pricing to high end department store pricing. I will look no further. I can apply this in the morning, run my errands in the heat, clean, then go running and it still will not budge. I wish the price were a little less, but this is definitely worth it for me.

My holy grail eyeliner. Perfect for my flicks and getting the the thickness you desire. Stays black all day like the name says. I can't fault anything! No cracking. No flaking. I could probably sleep with it on and it would still be black and full in the morning.

I really love this eyeliner; the black is so rich and the application is so easy! It is kind of expensive for the amount of product you get, but with moderate everyday use, it still lasts me a good couple of months. My only complaint is that after you've broken it in, the felt tip isn't as strong and making a clean line gets more difficult. Its staying power is incredible and removal is also super easy. The pros definitely outweigh the cons and I would repurchase again and again.

This is the first review I've bothered to write and it had to be about this product.
I opted for the dark brown color and it's absolutely amazing.
I've tried to do the cat eye with so many different types of liners before and this one makes it so easy. The tip is so precise it's a no miss when you're trying to do the infamous flick.
I'm a fan of Revlon Colorstay Liquid pen, and its actually pretty good, but I could never do a perfect cat eye.

Stila's stays put, like, doesn't budge. And it's beautifully pigmented.
Go buy it, if you too are struggling to find the perfect tool to achieve a flawless winged look.

SOOOO FRUSTRATED! This liner was amaazing at first, super easy to use, precise and long lasting. After using it for less than a month, less than 10 times, it is COMPLETELY dried up!! I had the lid on perfectly and everything... Plus the felt too is starting to fray as well... So after paying $25 C for this, I only got to use it a few times and now all it does is leave greyish messy streaks everywhere. So disappointed, I wish I could return it

I had a terrible experience with this eyeliner, and it could be because I opted for the chocolate brown color as opposed to the black, but I was so disappointed!

It started off great. The brush was easy to use and it was quite pigmented. The only minor problem I had was the tip. Because it is felt and very soft, it tended to wear off on the end, and I could not get a sharp flick. But I kept using it without being too bothered.

However, only a few weeks in, the product was completely dried up and could NOT be used over eyeshadows at all, as it would just collect the eyeshadow onto the brush and not produce a line at all.

Now, it's completely unusable. I expect a lot more for a 20-something dollar item. My L'Oreal eyeliner has lasted me almost a year without any problems. I just wish they made a dark brown color.

Not a fan. I would suggest trying Kat Von D's Tattoo liner instead.

My HG liquid liner - I will never buy another! It goes on so smooth, perfectly pigmented, and doesn't have that too-matte dry "fuzzy" look that some liners can get. You can build it up and go back over where you've already drawn and it stays smooth and opaque. I have really oily eyelids and as long as I use a primer I have no transfer issues.

I seriously love it, I don't know what else to say. The black is perfect and has a slightly wet look. It's so easy to create the perfect cat eye with. I get stopped by strangers who want to ask me what kind of eyeliner I use.

Even on days when I don't do a full-on cat eye, I'll just use the tip and dot between my lashes for a tightline effect.

I don't know what I would do if they stopped making this, I might have to fling myself off the top of a very tall building. PLEASE STILA NEVER STOP MAKING THIS EYELINER!
