The verdict is in, and Smudge Pot takes the prize for sultry bedroom eyes!

This unique gel eyeliner / eye shadow is an innovative alternative to traditional powder and liquid formulas. This clever little gel has an inky intensity that leaves traditional powder shadows in the dust. 

Apply with a liner brush for razor-sharp precision or smudge it with your fingers for more complete coverage. Remember to always close the airtight lid to keep the gel soft and pliable.

Love love love. I’ve used this forever. It was even my eyeshadow for my wedding! Very natural looking with a nice shimmer. It also works great as a primer. I get it from Sephora or Ulta. Would recommend.

This is a solid eyeliner creme. I use an angled chisel brush to apply. Still has good staying power, little fallout, and minimal smudging in my experience. It is a decent price and lasts a while, even with daily wings.

Excellent cream liner. Great for the kid and the inner lash line. Stays well, is easy to apply, and comes off easily with the proper remover. Has a nice rich black color over shadows and does not smear through the day.

I need to revisit this product and play with it a bit more. I bought it to use as a liner and I’m just not skilled enough at liner to use it. I find it to be messy. I’ve heard it dries out easily so I’m nervous mine might be past it’s prime. I want to try it as a shadow but that might be a smokey eye too advanced for me to attempt haha

I do really like this product, it is smooth and goes on easy, however I feel like I have to go back over my line a bunch to get it all the same color, it also wipes off easy, mine looks messy by the end of the day. I feel like it will last a really long time though

Great gel liner! Stays on for a long time and is easy to use. I use a small angle brush to apply my liner and is always so nice when it’s on. Little goes a long way and this is my first time using stila products :)

I wanted a really good gel eyeliner and looked at reviews on the Sephora website and saw this one was in the highest range. So I went for it and bought it, I’m honestly so impressed with it, it is so pigmented and wears for a long time. I use it for my water line and sometimes I even use it for my top eye liner. It’s so easy to manipulate with a brush, a lot of people don’t like using gel for the top and I get it but this product is really great because it’s so bold and that’s why I would recommend it to you.

This product got too dry and crumbly way too fast, and when I swatch for direct comparison between other liners in a pot, this one definitely smudges way more than the others, no matter how primed or set it was. The main thing for me though, was the dryness. I wouldn’t buy it again because it won’t last long enough simply from drying out— wouldn’t be worth the money for how much you can actually use.

I love this stila eye pot. The color is bold and long lasting. It applies smooth and doesn't transfer onto my eyelid by the end of the day either like others I've tried. The pot is also a decent size. A little pricey but well worth it

I really like this liner because it's a very dark black and slides on so smooth. Most of my pot liners have dried up on me so this is my go to, and it has lasted quite a while! I like to pair this with my mac 224 brush for a perfect winged liner when I do pigment or glitter on the eyes because it still glides over without a problem! I would definitely recommend this over the inglot liner!

I tend to have a problem with all the gel liners i have tried, they always smudge. Are these as smudge proof as the liquid stila liners?

I've been trying a lot of liners and since I have a oily face they tend to give me raccoon eyes and I was wondering it this product would be different?
