Good product minus the packaging
Liked the product - highly pigmented, application is smooth and easy, and it stays superbly looooong. However the packaging is kind of cheap and tacky. Once you take out some length of the product, you can never take it back. The cover is terribly fragile - you can have little cracks if you push it even just a little too hard onto the smudge stick. I was very very cautious and careful at first until I dropped it and got the cover cracked anyway (on both tips - boo!).
This thing is quite pricey for a pencil eyeliner, hope Stila can somehow upgrade the packaging. One cannot perform a quick makeup with fragile products such as these.
E! Live From the Red Carpet set
I picked up two liners in the E! Live From the Red Carpet set: "Oscar Fish" (brown) and "Stargazer" (black). They’re very soft pencil liners, and swatched super smoothly. I really wish that Oscar Fish’s color out more on my waterline though. I feel like I have to really struggle to get the color on there, which is a shame because its what I wear everyday. Maybe if it were a darker shade of brown? I did have the same issue with another brown eyeliner I use (Revlon Colorstay) but over time the color started to go on really easily, so maybe it just takes time. Stargazer, however, goes on nice and dark! Both these liners have just a little bit of shimmer in them, but its not very noticible once its on.
I'm in love with this liner, I have it in 3 colors. These liners are very pigmented and go on very nice. This is the first crayon liner I've found that doesn't smudge/run through the day, and stays on the water line for more then 6hrs, AMAZING. So if I put it on at 9am it will look the same way by 5pm it's great. Yes it is $20 but its well worth it, and no matter what anyone says I haven't found any drugstore crayon liner thats comparable to this one that has its staying power. Def a solid 5 star product that I recommend.
You can spend a lot less on basically the same product
I think this eyeliner is good, but not great. It does go on nice and smooth. I don't have any real problems with this eyeliner but I don't think it's worth the price. I would say the quality is comparable to many drug store brands.
This is an absolutely amazing product. Stays on all day, and you never have to worry about those nasty eye goobers! I have very sensitive, allergy ridden eyes, and I had no problems with this product. Beware tho... there is not much product in the pencil, and no warning of when it may run out. You may want to keep an extra on hand.
Stays on ALL DAY LONG.
These eye liners are amazing. They are so pigmented and stay on all day long. I like to put them on my waterline and they stay put all day which is really amazing because most pencil eyeliners do the exact opposite! The color selection is great. These are super creamy and glide right on. I highly recommend!
I really love this eyeliner, I have never been able to line my upper lids with a pencil eye liner. I can with this one, the color is very black and it is so simple to apply, it also glides on so smoothly. I can also wear this on my bottom waterline which is rare for me my eyes tend to not let anything stay on my waterline. This was given to me as a present but I will be buying another for sure.
This is the longest lasting eyeliner I have ever used, Works best for your waterline, I like to use liquid on my lids so i usually only use this for the waterline, but works way better than my urban decay 24/7 pencils! It will stay on all day!
Worth the Price
I was a little hesitant to buy this at first, but as soon as I tried it out I was glad that I did! First off I love that it is a retractable pencil, since you don't have to deal with the mess of sharpening it and can take it anywhere you go. The eyeliner goes on really smoothly and appears dark, and it's great for the waterline because the pencil is nice and narrow. I would recommend this for anyone who is constantly on the go, or is looking for a nice and convenient eyeliner.
