FRIDAY FAVORITE: Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner

Everyone needs a bangin eyeliner in their makeup arsenal. For me, eyeliner is usually a daily staple and helps define and add some drama to my peepers.  So for this week’s Friday Favorite I am featuring one of my favorite eyeliners of all time, the Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner.   Described as, "a color-rich, vibrant, and easy-to-use liner with staying power" this waterproof all-star glides seamlessly onto the lids and once it sets the fade-proof finish won't move or crease.  Featured here in the color "Damsel", a dark brown/black the Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liners can be purchased at Sephora, Ulta, and Stila's website. (Stila is actually having a 25% off sale site wide at the moment with free shipping, use code SPRING25.  And this product will be buy one get one free in Ulta stores Monday March 16th as part of their 21 days of beauty event.) 

Stila Smudge Stick Damsel

When I am in the market for an eyeliner I look for creaminess, staying power, rich color payoff, and a formula that glides easily onto the lids without any tugging or pulling on that sensitive eye area. This product checks all those boxes.  Retailing for $20 these eyeliners come in a wide variety of shades (Sephora sells 35 alone), and my personal favorites are Damsel, Gilded, Lionfish, and Deep Burgundy for complimenting my brown eyes. These glide on like a dream in the water line and for lining my top lids I like that I can leave it as is or I can blend it out a little with a pencil brush to create that desired smokey effect.  Despite being advertised as waterproof this product comes off easily with my face wash and I love that the packaging color corresponds with the actual product color so they’re easy to spot when rifling through your makeup stash.  I have also had this eyeliner for over a year and it is still holding strong. It hasn't dried out on me and I still have plenty of product left. There's nothing worse than buying a high end eyeliner and then having it dry out before you can use it up!  So if you couldn’t tell from all my raving this eyeliner is the finest and you need it n your life.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I was having car trouble earlier this week so my weekend will be devoted to buying a new car. I would rather swallow a lego than go car shopping, but at this point I have left myself no other choice.  I drove my beloved Honda Civic down to Florida from NY, but sadly it has gotten to the point that I am putting more money into the jalopy than it’s worth.  Wish me luck ladies and hopefully come Monday I can announce I am the proud owner of a new vehicle!

  1. This is so good to know! I've been on the hunt for a good liner. I'm currently using Maybelline (I KNOW) and I have the Urban Decay in Perversion but I'm with you on that one, I don't like it! It tugs at my eyes, smudges easily, and no matter how I sharpen it there seems to be little pieces of pencil stabbing me so it's gotta go. BRB ordering this one right now.

    1. I know you will love it, I promise! So much better than the Urban Decay liners in my opinion.

  2. I seriously love when the liner packaging is the same color as the liner! Car buying is literally the worst- I had to get a new car last year and it was so annoyingly stressful. Hopefully you have someone with you who knows about cars- that helps!
