Review: Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner

Stila Smudgeproof Eyeliner

I was able to order Stila’s Color Outside the Lines eyeliner set last month on clearance. This set came out as part of their holiday collection and, sadly, is out of stock. However, you can still order two of these Smudge Stick eyeliners separately in the colors Stingray and Lionfish.

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner – “Smudge Sticks are what every woman has been looking for in a eye liner! There is a high content of volatile silicones and modern wax oil combinations that make this very comfortable and confident. It will be available in a mechanical pencil no sharpening needed. There is a Vitamin C and E, which will moisturize and act as an antioxidant to help against skin aging. Paraben Free, Not Animal Tested.”

Even though I’m swatching three limited edition colors, I’ll suggest other colors from Stila that are very similar. I really like these eyeliners because they last all day and really are smudge proof. However, these do not last on the waterline for more than 2 hours and will smudge. I suggest using these eyeliners only on the upper and lower lash line to prevent any fading or smudging. You can also use the Smudge Stick eyeliners on the eyelid by blending them out.

Stila Smudge Stick eyeliners come in all sorts of mattes, shimmers, and vibrant colors. There are now 31 different colors, including 22 new shades for the spring. I also love that these are retractable. I feel like some product is wasted when you have to sharpen an eyeliner. These are very easy to use and last all day. I highly recommend these eyeliners!
