Company’s Description

Smudge that won’t budge… in every shade of the color wheel! Our bestselling Smudge Sticks are now available in an array of matte, shimmer and pop hues that hold tight. Made with a cocktail of moisturizing ingredients, including vitamin E, color glides on smooth (no tugging or pulling) in a waterproof formula that won’t budge or fade. With 31 gorgeous shades to pick from, discover intense & immediate color payoff in a single swipe! What’s more? Our Smudge Sticks pack a one-two punch: you can use it as a classic pencil liner or a smudgy eye shadow – simply smudge with your fingers or a brush before color sets.

Stila’s Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liners are available in over 30 shades. Stila’s Spring 2014 Collection included 22 new shades, including Sepia–a metallic taupe–and Mint Julep–a matte pale pastel green.


Packaging: 9/10

The Stila Smudge Sticks come in very light, plastic pencils that twist in the middle to push up more product from the tube.

Quality: 9.25/10

I really enjoy using both of these shades. Sepia is a metallic taupe that brightens and opens up the eyes. Mint Julep is a matte mint shade that’s fun to pair with brown liner, or use to fill in the lid.

These liners have a creamy formula that doesn’t require too much pressure or tugging on the lids. You can use them both as liners and cream shadows. They also work in the waterline, but they don’t transfer nearly as well as Stila’s Kajal liners do for that purpose.

When used on the upper lash line, these are fade-resistant and don’t smudge (unless you rub your eyes).

Ease of Use: 9/10

These liners transfer onto the skin pretty easily. When used all over the lid, they do crease, so make sure you use a primer and/or set the product with translucent powder.

Price: 8/10

For $20.00 you get 0.01 ounces of liner. This is a small amount of product–a fourth of what you get in many other waterproof liners–for the price.
