Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Black - Jet Black - Review and Swatch

This is my hands down new favourite liquid liner. Where has it been all of my life? I cannot recommend this liquid liner enough. It is super easy to use because it has a very fine tip and the product comes out at a decent rate, not fast and in big blobs. If you are new to liquid liner, you have to get this one. If you are an old pro, this is still possibly your best bet. This stuff glides on easily, you can make your line and wing as small or as big as you want. There is no tugging, no smudging, no nonsense. It's hard to screw up lining your eyes when you us this. I have worn this eyeliner in 110 degrees and it does not fade. It still looks awesome and fresh by the end of the day. It is also not super wet, but is just the right moistness (is that a word?) so you can't make a mess.

This liner does not run or feather. It is not the blackest liquid liner on the market, I will say that. But it is black enough to look good and get the job done. Also, you can put another layer of it over the first layer if you want it really black. While L'Oreal's Carbon Intense Liner is much blacker, I find the tip is not as precise as the Stila one and the L'Oreal liner comes out fast and can be a bit tricky to deal with. Also, it doesn't dry out in 10 seconds like the MAC counterpart. They are $26 Canadian at Sephora and $20 U.S. Well worth every penny I think. This is perfect for travel, especially if you want to avoid lugging a gel pot liner and brush etc. The tube is super slim and can be tucked into the smallest purse. There is a spring-like click to keep the cap on too. Here's the swatch.
