Eyeliner -Stila - Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner Stingray

I have a serious problem with eyeliner smudging below my eyes, even if I only apply it to the upper lashline. On my quest for the perfect liner, I've tried Stilla smudgestick in the black color, expecting from the smudgepot reviews I've read, that this would stay put without smearing all day. WRONG. It stays put a little better than most other eyeliners I've tried, but I still get smudging under the eye area, which means if I don't constantly check my makeup I end up looking sloppy. I do like the convenience of a retractable liner though, so I may repurchase this to avoid dealing with the hassles of things like gel liners in pots and constantly having to sharpen pencils.
I don't like this at all. I'm not a fan of lipgloss in general, but since I love Illuminare foundations I expected their lipgloss to be of the same quality. It claims to last all day but doesn't deliver. I got the sample pack and every color is too glittery. Although the colors look good on my skin, I won't be wearing these anytime soon.
I love Illuminare foundations, so after hearing about how long lasting these eyeshadows are, I fully expected to love them too. Unfortunately, I don't. I much prefer the application of powder eyeshadows to cream, and all the colors are neutral ones.

I love the pure ingredients in this Illuminare foundation. I also use it under my eyes as a concealer, and it works fairly well at that also. I love the packaging. It's not as wasteful as many other brands and works very effeciently if you ask me. I apply it with a regular foundation brush rather than the applicator the Illuminare folks recommend, though.

While not perfect, this is my favorite eyeliner. It's VERY black, makes tightlining easy for me, requires no extra brushes and does not smudge. It lasts all day long and washes off like a dream (I don't need makeup remover with it). The one bad thing is that I guess this dries out in 2-3 months and when that happens it leaves little black "flakes" on your skin upon application.

This eyeliner applies very smoothly - I could slap on natural looking brown eyeliner for everyday wear in 60 seconds. However, it always smudged under my eyes and creased on the top lid. I wouldn't bother with this eyeliner again.
