It feels like a long time since I have written a beauty post… and it has been quite awhile. I’ve been so busy the last month that I haven’t really been able to go out and try new products, which means nothing really to write about. But I finally had time to open my new products and splurge on some new items as well so I’ll be back to more makeup posts. Yay!
To be honest, I haven’t used any Stila products before but have seen them around for quite awhile. The Stila liquid eyeliner came in an eyeliner set, and it was the first one I decided to open because I wanted to try a Stila product. This is the sample size but the full size product retails for about $26 Canadian.
It’s quite a long name- Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. For simplicity’s sake, I’ll just call it the Stila liquid liner. This shade is the dark brown – chocolate brown. When it comes to liner shades, I much prefer jet black because it’s more noticeable on my eyes. Brown is good if you want a neutral “no makeup makeup” look, but it’s just my preference. Anyways, I decided to try it and see how it looked.
The packaging of this liner is pretty sturdy and standard. The eyeliner comes as a felt tip, and application was very easy. The product and colour applied instantly at first contact, and it was very easy to glide along my eyelid in one easy sweep, no corrections were necessary. The application was also very even. I was also expecting a lighter shade of brown, but I actually preferred this colour more. When it dries, I found that the colour was actually a bit darker so it does look black.
Now, the important question is… how long did it last? I put this on in the morning, and was out and about for the whole day. Throughout lunch, shopping, and going to a very exciting Canucks game, I am happy to say that the eyeliner did not smudge at all and was in the same condition at the end of the night as it was in the morning. The removal process was also very easy too, it came off with one quick wipe of makeup remover. I am quite happy with this product and am glad that I gave it a try.
- Very easy to apply in one sweep, no mess at all
- Brush is very easy to use and guide
- Great lasting power
- Rich colour
- Does not smudge
- For this shade specifically, I found it darker after application than it was originally shown (which was a good thing for me since I prefer dark liners)
