Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Koi

5 years ago

I purchased this Stila eyeliner from Sephora a while back. It was on sale for $5, I believe! (Sephora has seriously awesome sales/specials, it`s nearly impossible for me to resist). The shade, Koi, is a really pretty foiled gold shade.

In the swatch photos above, the first photo is with flash, and the second is without flash. I tried to do three lines of different thicknesses, but it was a little tricky - this is a smudge stick, after all! The liner itself is retractable, which I don`t mind except for the fact that retractable liners do tend to break (whether it`s the mechanism that allows you to twist up/twist down more or less product, or the liner itself). This liner *is* quite soft, so you want to be sure to twist up only a little bit - just as much a you need to line your eyes.

The product itself is gorgeous - it glides on smoothly and evenly, and is opaque after one swipe. According to the reviews on Sephora, some people say that the product flakes off after they`ve been wearing it for a while. I`m not sure why, but I have never had this problem. I find that this liner really is waterproof, and is actually quite difficult to remove at the end of the day.

Aside from a couple of minor annoyances (the softness of the liner and the difficulty of removing it), I would definitely recommend this eyeliner. I am in love with the colour and the formula. It was definitely a steal at $5. If it were to go on sale again, I`d buy a backup liner, for sure!
