Rave: Stila stay all day waterproof liquid eye liner

10 months later the writing is wearing away

Back in January, when Stila returned to a physical presence in Harvey Nichols (yay!), I picked up this eye liner, and 10 months down the line it is still going strong so it's well overdue a rave post.

Stila stay all day waterproof liquid eye liner in intense black is a lovely, deep black liner that does exactly what it says on the tin - stays put. I took this with me on holiday and even in intense heat it didn't melt away.

It has a slight sheen to the finish but not overly so like patent. The brush allows for very precise application so you can get a fine or thick line with ease.

the brush still looks good

Some pen/brush liners do not apply well over other eye makeup giving a weak looking line but this is not the case with this liner, it is intense from the off.  
Even though I've had this for some time now it still applies as intensely as when I first purchased it which I am seriously impressed with as others by now would have dried up.

Also I find that when removing it doesn't flake off like some other liners I have (*cough Illamasqua Precision Ink*) which can be annoying.
With it's super staying power, it does require a good remover but my usual oils/balms make short work of it. 

It goes without saying that I'd definitely repurchase this when it runs out as it's a product I use regularly.

    1. Hi Jan
      Before I used to use gel eye liners more to get the flicks but most days I use this, as the nib is not too firm so I can getting a slight sweeping motion. The RBR Quartz liner (the black shade) is good for this too as the brush is right flexibility.
      Also I find the tip about following your lower lash line outwards to see where you would get the flick helps too.
