I have purchased it two times and I can safely say it was a waste. The first time I got it I thought it was amazing, so thin and black and it looked so great! However it did ran out quickly and the color faded, but I kept thinking that maybe I got a bad one because the memories were good. So, I got the second one. And it lasted even less than the other. The problem is that within a month the color stops being solid black to go translucid grey and the point doesnt have ink anymore, it dries so you have to use the side of the brush and then the whole point of a thin line is gone. Not to mention that, even if it did last 6 months, its too expensive.

Im 100% obsessed with this liner. my eyes are very sensitive, which means they can get very watery, so good quality waterproof makeup is always a must for me. I've tried so many different liners and this has been the best. This is the only liquid liner I have bought since discovering it. It is so pigmented, doesn't leave weird streaks or require you to go over it more than once. I love the felt tip its so simple to apply wherever you put it it stays. I have had some late nights at the bar, gotten home and passed out with a face full of makeup, woken up the next day and my liner was still perfect. Just store this baby upside down to keep it nice and pigmented.
Honestly I was very apprehensive about the price at first but after the first time I used it, I was i love. I also wear a lot of liner on a regular basis, and I've got to tell you that this liner in general has lasted me forever. I haven't even gone through 2 in the past 6 months. This stuff does not dry out as long as you store it properly, you'll get your moneys worth. This is absolutely my holy grail

If you have watery eyes, this probably isn't going to work for you. During the day and going out I had no problems with it but when my eyes get watery the liner pretty much disappears. Other than it's pretty good and I continue to use it

This product is overhyped...horrible product..didn't last long...even with UD eyelid primer, used it on my bottome lashline as well and it smeared later not too long after, the color fades, my Jordanna 12 hour eye pencil lastes longer and it was 2.99..don't waste your money ladies

I got this a while ago and repurchased it twice for about $19, but I eventually switched over to Estee Lauder's Double Wear Eyeliner, which worked a whole lot better. I'm pretty disappointed as to how this eyeliner held up since so many people in these reviews swear by it. I have oily monolids, and this product didn't make the cut for me.

Pros:
- Delivered a rich, black pigment for the first few uses
- Precise, thin brush

Cons:
- Wasn't waterproof for me. It smudged throughout the day in 6 hours or less and didn't survive a shower (even without rubbing my eyes)
- Ran out quickly. Barely lasted me a month
- The brush started fraying after three weeks, and it was impossible to put back into place without chopping it off
- The pigment faded quickly and lost its opacity
- Disappeared completely after using it on my waterline
- Kinda pricey for an eyeliner that didn't last long

Overall, I wouldn't repurchase this, and although I really liked it for the first times I used it, I don't think it's worth the price.

I have been a lover of Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. It was amazing when I first bought it. After about a year, I am somewhat disappointed. Maybe I've been grabbing an expired eyeliner? The past few purchases, I have noticed that my liner will turn an ashy gray color. Sometimes it will wipe completely off throughout the day. It doesn't matter if I put shadow or not.

Like I said, I could've been purchasing expired eyeliners or something of that sort.

This is a great liquid eyeliner. The brush is thin and soft but doesn't lose its shape or dry out, so it's easy to apply and great for making a winged line. The color is also very pigmented and gives me a nice clear line in a deep pigmented black every time.

Even better, it stays on my fairly oily lids all day without smuding, even in the most humid weather. I've used it for 4 months now and it's still going strong, but I will repurchase when it eventually runs out.

I had 3 deluxe sizes of this liner in black. They lasted for around 5months each before drying out or flaking. I love how well this liner stays on my lids - it lasts all day but is easy to remove with eye makeup remover. The only thing I wasn't super happy with is that the brush tends to start fraying after a little while and so can be a pain when trying to do sharp wings. However it's very easy to grab scissors and cut off the frayed bits so there's that. I wouldn't necessarily repurchase on its own because I find my maybelline liner to be just as good for way cheaper. But if this came in a kit with other stuff, i'd be more than happy to make good use of it.

I swictched to this Stila liner after going through many, many Kat von D liquid liner pens. At my local Sephora they literally had 50 or so of these liners on display. I guess they're a hot seller...

I do mostly prefer it over the KvD. It has a firm tip and the product itself is very dark and opaque, but it can read a bit shiny as some of you have pointed out...it's kind of an optical illusion when you're so close to the mirror (and so close to stabbing yourself in the eye). I would like it to be totally matte, simply because that bit of shine makes your eyeliner look either charcoal gray or less than opaque when it usually isn't.

My favorite thing about it is the firmness of the tip actually. I had to go through a learning curve as I'm used to more flexible tips (heh) but it's much easier to make a thin line with it, as well as more complicated looks just because it offers more control. My KvD thin lines were always a travesty. The drawback is that you have to be more steady.

It lasts all day for me and removal is NOT easy (idk how you guys are taking it off with water) but doable with cream/oil cleansers. Dries quickly, minimal (if any) smudging for me (slightly oily lids and over a primer).

Overall definitely awesome, definitely an upgrade to my makeup bag, will continue to purchase unless Sephora/Ulta start to stock the elusive magical unicorn LORAC Front of the Line Pro eyeliner.

I have this in the shade brown, and it is hands down the best ever eyeliner I have ever used. The packaging is really nice. The applicator brush is perfect. It really makes it easy to apply, and it dries almost immediately after. It definitely is waterproof, and I would know because my eyelids can get really oily, and this DOES NOT budge ! I love it. It is a bit pricey, but a good eyeliner would be worth the price. The only problem I have is, after perhaps 8-10 hours of using it, it would start to smudge, and it would irritate the heck out of my eyes. I'd get all teary and it just is a mess. So, If you're like me and you have your eyeliner still on after a super long day, be careful ! The little thing can really sting. Ouch! But will repurchase anyway IF I had money to splurge atm (Note: I somehow lost it. Been trying to get myself to repurchase every time I am at Sephora but the price increased and I'm trying to find cheaper alternatives, particularly an Asian one, like from Clio or K-Palette. So far I have one that is waterproof and lasts all day from the brand Kate , a Japanese brand; but the colour is not dark enough UGH).
