Stila Eyeliner Set Review



Hi everyone! :)

Today I have a review on the Seeing Stars Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner Set from Sephora.  I bought this around the holidays for about $30.  They feature five subtle shimmery metallic colors.




Staying Power: I was frankly really impressed with how long they stayed on.  It stays on for about 12 hours before it slightly fades away.  It really is smudge-free and it never transferred to my lower eyelid.  Although some people complain of a waxy substance sticking to their contacts after using this liner, I never had that problem.

Texture: It is so unbelievably smooth and creamy to the point it has become a problem for me.  If I apply even a little bit of pressure, it breaks off and I end up wasting a bit of the product.  It applies best for me if you twist up the product so that it's barely above the opening (see picture below)



Colors:


*all shades are of a shimmery metallic tone*

Stargazer 

Sheer black color.  You will need to apply two or three coats to get a dark black color.

Tetra 

Pearly purple color.  Up close you can tell it's purple but it appears a bit brownish when you're far away.  

Moray

Subtle olive green color.  Olive green may not be the most attractive color, but this one is really gentle and quiet.  Again, the color looks a bit brownish from far away, especially after applying several coats.

Oscar Fish

Soft, light brown color.  This color is great for lining the upper lid for a light, natural pop to your eyes.

Angelfish

Beautiful light pearly pink color.  It's great for lining your lower lashline to highlight the inner corners.  It's not as bright and pearly as the picture when you apply it to your eyes.  





Warning: Because it is SUPER creamy, the liner breaks off really easily like warm butter.  Also, the twisting device only pushes it up.  It doesn't retract the liner. Keep that in mind before twisting the liner up several inches because you won't be able to put it back in.

Have a great day everyone :)
