Product Description

Our bestselling Smudge Sticks are available in an array of matte and shimmer formulas that stay—not stray—for reliable color payoff that’s second to none. With a range of gorgeous shades to choose from, they feature a cocktail of moisturizing ingredients that ensures color glides on smooth (no tugging or pulling) and the waterproof formula won’t budge or fade. 

What’s more, our Smudge Sticks can be used as a classic pencil liner or a smudgy eye shadow - simply smudge with your fingers or a brush.  The color sets after you’ve had time to get your desired effect, and then stays put all day.

Review for: Violet more...
Got this in in Violet. I've been wanting this color ever since the new shades came out, and I had to return something else to Sephora, so I caved and got this. The color is right on the line between warm and cool toned, leaning just a bit warm on my skin. Like my other Stila liners, it lasted all day on me without fading or smudging at all. The color is a little wild, but I love it. Definitely would purchase again.

Review for: Midnight Blue (matte deep navy) more...
Stila has a great selection on colors and the liner goes on so smooth and precise. I also love the fact that you don't have to sharpen them. You just twist it up when you need more. But they doesn't stay long and I would not recommend this to the people who wear contact lenses.

This product is amazing! I got mine in the real color and it’s gorgeous. It really is waterproof. It stays in my water line all day and it’s a very smooth application! It’s also retractable so it doesn’t make a mess when it needs to be used.

Review for: Tetra (shimmering eggplant purple) more...
Stila Smudge stick Waterproof eyeliner is a good product it does run a little but I think that has more to do with the fact that I have very oily eyes. I love this purple color looks great with my green eyes. And I love the fine point tip.

Review for: Alpine (matte pure white) more...
I love it. It’s really pigmented so I haven’t struggled with it yet. Goes great with my light brown eyes. I don’t use this often but I do wear it from time to time to give my eyes that little pop. Would definitely recommend

I am an eyeliner addict. I have so many but this is one of my favorites. It definitely does not smudge and it stays all day and is very easy to apply. I would definitely recommend buying this product.

Review for: Stingray (jet black) more...
I’m personally not a fan of this liner but I buy it twice a year for my mom who refuses to pay $22 for a liner even though this is her favorite one. It does not budge at all throughout the day and doesn’t fade- a good liner over all I personally prefer liquid but it you’re looking for a pencil I would recommend this one

Review for: Midnight Green (black emerald green) more...
I absolutely adore this. I have green eyes so the color is perfect. Dark enough to pop but also light enough to blend out. It lasts allllll day long and it’s slightly shimmery so it really makes my eyes sparkle.

Review for: Metallic Umber (metallic grey smoke) more...
I feel this eyeliner was pretty low quality for how much it costs. I had a hard time even getting it to show up on my eye at all. The stick itself also broke off a lot due to how hard I had to push to apply the product. I wasn’t impressed and won’t purchase Stila eyeliner again, probably.

I have a terrible time with liners running down my face but this product stayed in place. I loved It, it had very very minimal running. It's blends smoothly and lasts all day long. This is a great formula and I would definitely recommend to others.

Does this product last on the waterline? I know it says waterproof but constant moisture at the waterline makes me wonder

Does anyone else have an issue with the liner not twisting up? I literally just got mine in the mail and it is unusable past the first initial nub because it won't turn up. Wondering if anyone else had the same issue?

Is the texture of this liner like a pencil vs a liquid? Will it stay on all day without wearing off by the time I'm leaving work?
