This is my holy grail eye liner! The colors I have are Intense Black and the brown, your staple colors, and they are very true to color and pigmented. The pros are that they last all day when applied on top of your eye primer (I must use one because my eyelids are oily.). I played high school basketball for four years and makeup that could last through school and a three hour practice. That was the true test of this liner. It is very easy to create a wing and it last for a long time. The only con I had was that if you put it in a cup standing straight up, it dries out quicker. Always store it on its side! Other than that, it's amazing!

despite many raves of it being "fool-proof" this just didn't work out . the tip of the pen may be fine but it's too long therefore making it hard to control . Although it does stay all day and has really intense colour , It doesn't make lining your eyes easier at all , it even got into my eye . To be honest , my Japanese drugstore eyeliner worked SO MUCH better and is $10 cheaper . I would say skip this .

So I know this is a cult favorite. But it not my favorite. This gets a lot of love for being "easy" to apply, and that's something I just can't agree with. Sure, it's a fine tip pen. How hard can it be to eff up, with a fine tip pen? If you're me, the answer is: pretty easy. Whenever I use this, I feel like the product is so thin, that it just gets everywhere. It's not like bleeding all over the place, but I'm used to kind of drawing a faint guide and filling it in. That's not An option with this. You touch the pen to your outer eye to start drawing the flick, and suddenly you have this really awkward too-straight line going on, and it's not going anywhere. Maybe I need to be more careful, but my other problem is that every time I use this, and BARELY fill in the inner lash line (not the water rim, just the regular top lash line,) it irritates my eyes and they start watering and then I have this hideous crack-head grey smudge thing going on around my tear ducts. Then I'm trying to cover it with concealer (cuz it won't wipe off) and now it's like, a corpse-colored mess, and I try to just redraw the line over the grey smudge and it happens all over again. I'm 25! I've been doing my eyeliner the same way for over 10 years! I should NOT be struggling this much with something that's praised for its ease of use. Plus, when I check my makeup in natural light, there are often spots that didn't get covered because the pen is so thin. All that said, however, it does have great staying power and the color is super rich and matte. Probably won't repurchase, though.

The Stila Stay All Day Waterproof liquid liner is my HG liner for my top lash lines. This will not budge!! The felt tip also makes applying almost fool proof. Pigment is very black as well. I have been using this for almost two years now. The only complaint I have is that some pens dry out faster than others, I reccomend storing it tip down and shaking before use to get the best results!

I've literally used the same pen everyday for 3 months now and the color is strong and dark every time. I have no issues with the tip being dry when I apply it, and generally speaking, compared to other eyeliner pens in the same category, the price is average. Its def become my favorite.

Simply the best best best eyeliner. Precise little tip that never fails, the darkest line, and most of all IT STAYS FOREVER! No amount of blinking or exercise will move it, yet it comes off easily with makeup remover! Amazing!

I received this as a Christmas present. This eyeliner is alright, but it is nothing special and dries out quickly.

- Definitely waterproof
- Stays on all day just like it says in the product name
- Very fine tip allows you to do thin lines

- Although it's waterproof, you can rub it or scratch it off
- Annoying to use when it gets dried out because you no longer get that fine tip application

If it's within your budget, definitely give it a try!

It's great works like a charm. Pricey for me
Glides on easily and is dark enough. Just its not smudge proof or waterproof. DEAL BREAKER

I am always happy to find a great eyeliner pen. I love how quickly they apply and how convenient it is to throw in a purse or wristlet. Great for speed of application. But I've tried plenty that don't last.

When Marc Jacobs first came out with the Magic Marc'er, I was in love with that. But the second one I bought had something wrong with it. It wasn't as inky black, didn't last as long. I think I got a lemon.

So I got Stila's similar Stay All Day liquid liner in Jet Black, which was ten dollars less. It's perfect for carrying around, a nice deep black, with good staying power and no irritation. A real winner! However, I think Jet Black is the only color I would buy. The fun, bright colors don't seem to be as tenacious.

I still think the longest lasting eyeliner I've ever had is Bobbi Brown's gel ink liner in the little pot, but you have to apply it with a tiny brush and be relatively astute at doing so. Once set, it lasts all day. But it does take longer to apply and it's not practical to carry the pot and a brush in your purse.

This liquid pen from Stila is great for touch-ups and lasts longer than most.
