Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner Review and Swatches

August 15, 2010

The latest stick version of Stila’s famous Smudge Pot, Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner, is handsdown every girl’s dream eyeliner. Find out why after the jump!

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner


With the Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner, all you have to do is twist and apply. There is no need for a sharpener and the tiny tip gave great precision. The buttery texture also allowed smooth and easy application with zero tugging.

The 8 super gorgeous colors were all so intensely pigmented I never have to go over the same line twice to get the color I want.

Blue Ribbon – navy grey
Koi – metallic gold
Lionfish – deep bronze with shimmer
Moray – golden olive with shimmer
Peacock – vibrant teal with shimmer
Purple Tang – dark purple with shimmer
Silver Dollar – metallic silver
Stingray – jet black

The best part was how long-lasting it was. Once the liner set, it did not smudge or fade even if it came into contact with water. I even broke a beauty rule and tried rubbing my eye to see if it would come off but the line simply did not budge. Seriously, what more can you ask for?

The Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner is now available at Sephora for $20.

    i am wondering if it is better than the MAC grease paint stick

    Angelina,

    The MAC Greasepaint Stick is more of an eyeshadow/base and this is like an eyeliner (the tip is a LOT thinner and unlike the MAC, you don’t have to sharpen this). They both stay on really well tho.

    I am gonna have to check these liners out! I am still in the search for an HG liner that won’t fade and smudge super fast. I’ve been using MAC Blacktrack for the waterline as well these days but I would much rather use a pencil liner. Thanks for the review!!!

    Leah,

    I bought the Smudge Stick at Sephora. If the product was sent to me, I always put up a disclaimer (you will see it right below the rating).

    thanks Phylz,

    pls tell me how this holds up on the waterline! i use mac fluidline on my waterline but it never lasts:(

    • Reply Phyllis October 22, 2010 at 11:36 am

      Yes it does!! You can always run a Q-tip over your waterline to soak up some moisture before you apply the eyeliner as well.

    Are these comparable with Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide On Pencils? And are they good for tightlining?

    • Reply Phyllis November 25, 2010 at 1:43 am

      I actually prefer these over the UD pencils and yes they are good for tightlining.

    Hey I know I am late to the stila smudge stick party. Not because I did not want to get them, but I got distracted. LOL I ordered the Moray color and I hope that it will show up as a liner or I will use as shadow base.
