I have bald patches on my eyelashes which is highly embarrassing and my normal makeup routine is based around hiding these from plain sight, so when my faithful urban decay glide on suddenly turned on me I was desperate to find something else to do the job. This had such raving reviews that I had to try it. The first day I tried it was nothing short of a disaster and I had a very strange severe reaction to it, mind you I've NEVER had a reaction of any kind to any product, makeup or otherwise. At first all seemed well, I fell asleep watching a movie on the couch and woke up with my eyelids glued shut and a white hot burning feeling- I ran blindly up the stairs to my bathroom to frantically remove it with makeup wipes, even with every last trace of it removed I had to run my eyeballs under the sink water before finally achieving relief from the burning. My eyes were bright red and swollen and I looked terrifying. As it cost so much and I don't make enough to be dropping money like that on makeup as I please, I tried again...so far I have not had a similar reaction, although from time to time my eyes do get irritated or red- one morning my boss asked me why I'd been crying which is not cool as my job is all about first impressions for snooty clients. I could get fired for looking like I came to work high. Anyway, aside from the occasional issue with that, I will say it stays on well. I try to remember to remove makeup at the end of the day but I'm normally so exhausted that I'll fall asleep reading or something and wake up with it still almost perfectly in place. It comes off fairly easily using makeup wipes, but much more so in the shower, so I guess it's not totally waterproof. I like how you can make the lines really thin to really thick. It does take a lot of practice to get a perfect line, I use it daily and still have issues but I'm also not a heavy makeup user so maybe someone with more experience than me will do better.

I never liked felt tip pens because I had a maybelline one that smudged like crazy, but my coworker insisted that I get this from Ulta for the $11 21 Days of Beauty deal, and I’m pretty amazed. What I didn’t like about a felt pen was that the applicator was so bendable that at angles, it would apply eyeliner on the wrong areas of my life because I have this weird monolid with many creasings. But the Stila tip is more on the firm side, so it’s easier to control and actually get the right amount onto my skin. I also like that it lasts a good 8 hours. It does fade throughout the day because of my oily skin but not noticeably gone. It’s pretty easy to do a nice wing too! Probably the best eyeliner for me to get a sharp wing without having to fully concentrate for five mins on each eye lol. I like that it doesn’t smudge when removing makeup. My biggest pet peeve for removing eyeliner is having to rub my eyes constantly for it to all come off. By the end of the day, I just rub my oily eyelids and the oils of my skin just flakes the eyeliner off perfectly, which I prefer. Then I’d shower the rest of, and no smudges or excess are left on my skin! I would recommend this! But I did get it discounted. I do feel like $11 is still too much for an eyeliner, so the original price of $22 is waaay too much since I’m all about drugstore and saving money, so that’s why I’ll give it a four out of five stars.

I was really excited when I came across this Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner by Stilla at Sephora which features an extra fine point.  I was so excited that I took it out of the package before I had even made it home to more closely examine the tip of this liquid eyeliner.  When I arrived home, I immediately primed my eye like I normally would during my make-up routine but I did not apply any type of eye shadow to my eye.  Instead, I used the Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner by Stilla on my naked eye.  I liked the way it effortlessly went on my left eyelid and how easy it was to make the perfect cat eye also.  I did not place the top of the marker back on but instead just went right into my other eye to apply the liner.  But this time, it did not apply so smoothly.  Instead, it seemed to have dried up just a bit.  So I placed the top back on the eyeliner pen and gave it a shake and tried to apply it to my eyelid once more.  It still seemed to be dried just a bit.  I struggled to get it on the second eye and when I finished the product looked very dry and flaky.  I was very disappointed.  When I went to wipe the Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner off of my eyelids, it came off with great ease which was the complete opposite of what I was expecting from this waterproof product!  I am not sure if I just received a flawed product but I was really disappointed because I was so excited to purchase this product from Sephora!  I wish everyone else better luck than I had!

I needed a new liquid liner, and had trouble with the nyx liquid matte that came in the fine brush and inkwell style packaging that was difficult for me to apply without messing up and wasting time. I wanted to try this in the micro tip version so I grabbed it, even though it was 22 bucks I don't spend that much often on eyeliner. After the first few uses, the very tip of it dried out, which made it hard to apply a pigmented single stroke. I fix this by wetting the tip with saline solution and wipe it on a tissue to rid the excess moisture, and it is good as new. This is a good product for winged liner beginners as it is a smaller tip than the original which makes mistakes less obvious and great for creating a subtle wing. I prefer the felt tip pen style to the small brush and inkwell that makes it more difficult to apply an even line

I'm not sure how I feel about this eyeliner. I've had nothing but issues with it and was only able to use it quickly and efficiently a handful of times.
So I wear full glam makeup daily. But my focus is always on my eyes and the one thing I can't do without is a thick and gorgeous eyeliner. Usually winged. Liquid liner would be the one item I would choose if I could only have one type of makeup item forever.
I have tried and owned many high end liners from sephora and my two favorites are kvd tattoo liner and tarte se×kitten liquid liner. Marc Jacobs marc'er and tarte double ended liner were alright as well.
I purchased the set that included a full size stay all day liner and a full size huge extreme mascara.
I tried to use the liner immediately and it was just so wet I couldn't make a precise line if my life depended on it.
It later dried up enough for me to use it and for it to have the same consistency as most pen liquid liners. So at this time it worked great. Precise lines. No skipping or uneven color and it was very black.
Shortly After this though it ended up having the tip have some sort of lint coming off of it that messed up all my lines. This had happened with the marc jacobs one so I knew to just remove it. But instead of fixing the issue somehow it made a thin line but right on top of it was skipped lines that were just a broken straight line. Everything looked normal so I couldn't figure out what the issue was.
This has been the case ever since.
I'm great at doing my eyeliner if I have a pen or liner with a very thin brush and a not too wet and not too dry formula. I need it to go on smoothly and the felt or brush tip to stay together.
I did not get that with this and honestly it's been nothing but trouble from the beginning. It worksif I'm in a pinch and have run out of my other liners but otherwise I don't use it.

Review for: Intense Black (Jet Black) more...
I really like how this eyeliner glides on so easily and it is SO pigmented, like it is literally INTENSE black. It’s darker than a lot of eyeliners and I like that it actually comes off as a dark black, rather than a sheer black. This eyeliner also works really well in lasting throughout the day and I have oily lids. However, I’ve never been a fan of felt tips and this is a felt tip eyeliner. It just doesn’t create a wing as sharp and as easily as I would like it to. The tip also feels thicker to me, so for someone with smaller lids, I tend to overdraw with this eyeliner and it just doesn’t really work out for me as well as I would like it too. I really like the color and the intenseness of this eyeliner, but the felt tip just doesn’t help with the application and drawing of a wing.

This eye pen was so disappointing. It’s a beautiful formula that initially applies like a dream! It easily creates a precise, sharp, dramatic wing, or can be applied to the top tightline for a more subtle look. And true to its name, the formula really does last all day. It doesn’t budge at all and fades very little even after hours of wear. ....I just wish I was able to use this more than a few times before the pen dried out. I tried every trick in the book to bring life back into the pen after it dried out and became unusable, but the quality of the product started to degrade the more I tried to fix it. I’ve found pens on the market such as the Clinique Pretty Easy™ Liquid Eyelining Pen that take forever to even come close to drying out, so I sadly will not be repurchasing this eye pen from Stila in the future.

If they ever stop making this eyeliner, I will die for sure. I have used this eyeliner for years, and no matter what other brands I try, I always come back to this one. From drug store brands to Kat Von D and Eyeko, no formula or applicator compares to Stila. I have hooded eyelids that are always a little oily and I always apply my eyeliner with a wing, so I need a formula with staying power and easy application. This is the most fool proof liquid eyeliner I have used and it stays! Sometimes I have even a hard time getting it off. It lasts me through swimming, sweating, and busy 12 hour shifts. I would recommend this eyeliner to anyone and everyone who wants an eyeliner that actually stays. Yes, it is a bit expensive, but it lasts forever and the formula is the best.

This liquid eyeliner is pretty easy to apply. It stays all day without you having to touch up much. If you cry a lot or get wet it may get messed up but as far as normal wear it’s pretty good. The color is a nice solid black. I like to use this for Cat eye looks the most. The price isn’t too bad for it and of course I’m things always go on sale so if you watch you can get a good deal. Around the holidays you can generally get it bundled with something else too.
