Sephora Favorites box #5 Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner

STILA
Product #5 from the Sephora Favorites box is the Smudge Stick waterproof Eyeliner in Black by Stila. Normally I use a regular black liner pencil by either Sephora, Ulta, or NYC which can be found at Target. I always put it in my bottom lid waterline and throughout the day it will fade off into my lower lashes unless I secure it with powder, which I rarely do. With regular pencil liners I tend to only do the bottom waterline, and will add more black liner to my top lid, but ONLY with liquid liner. I do this because I find that without powdering over pencil liner I get a black smudge over my shadow, and I don't like to powder, I like my line to be bold which is another reason why I opt for liquid liner.

Generally I'll use Stiletto liquid liner or Revlons Liquid liner pen, both in black. I decided to give the Stila pencil a shot at both my top and bottom lids since it was voted an all time favorite and to my surprise I got some great results! The Stila pencil stays longer in my lower waterline instead of running into my lashes by mid-day, something I've NEVER experienced. I liked this because it was nice to look in the mirror at noon and not think to myself "why did I even bother putting liner on today"?! As for the top lid, the liner did leave a slight impression over my shadow but not anywhere near as bad as the normal pencil liners. In fact, all it took was a light dusting of a new coat of color and that took care of the small smudge it made! Overall, this product is Steffani approved :)
