Stila Smudgepot was my first gel liner and my holy grail until I tried MAC Fluidline.
Compared to the Fluidline, the Smudgepot comes in more of your everyday colors like black, brown, dark plum etc. and is more suitable for those who are color-shy. The texture is also different. While it does apply smoothly, the Smudgepot feels drier and harder. Mine dried up in less than a year even though there was still a lot of product left. I will not be repurchasing this.
Stila Smudgepot is available at Sephora and Beauty.com for $18.
