Product Description

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.

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

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.

FABULOUS liner! Extremely smooth, pigmented, and versatile. It's so easy to create sharp lines or smudged liner with this product. It's a little pricey, but worth it. I originally purchased this because Sephora was out of the tarte Amazonian clay Pot eyeliner and I was told this was the next best thing. It really is! In fact, in some ways it's even better because it takes forever to dry out. Seriously this lasts and lasts! 100% worth it

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!

The eyeliner is smooth and glides on easily initially, however it does dry out after a few months of daily use. It applied well and didn't smudge or wear off mid-day, which is nice. I used the black a lot and also had a pretty shimmery violet shade (starry night I think?). Ultimately, I stopped using this product because I decided I didn't like potted eyeliners.

This liquid liner is dark and long lasting. However, application can be difficult. I do not like the brush I purchased (also Stilla) to go with the pot. It is very difficult to clean and after a few uses the end become flat instead of pointy, which causes issues when trying to draw straight lines, especially for wings.

Smudge pots are the best for me currently when using it as eyeliner over eyeliner pencils Stila Smudge Pots are a great addition to my beauty set. Using my angled eyeliner brush, I can apply the Stila Smudge Pot product in just the amount I want, whether a thin or thick line.

I remember I bought this product years ago when Ulta had them on sale for $10. I ended up buying the black shade and it was a mistake! It might have just been mine but the formula was so thick and dry. It wasn't pigmented and it was hard to apply. It reminded me of the Shiseido liner but with a worse formula.

I love them while they last!!!  The pigment is awesome, but they dry out in no time!  That's why I only gave it 3 stars.  For the price they should stay moist.  I would purchase NYX before these pits again.  If you run across a special then grab a couple because they do a great job until they dry up.

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?
