Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner|The Next Best Thing To Permanent Makeup

With oily eyelids, some makeup just slide off right away even when prepped with a primer or base. Thus, you can understand my excitement when I encounter an outstanding product that doesn't melt off of my face at the end of the day. If you have similar concern, you'll definitely love and go crazy for the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner ($20 for 0.016 oz).


This waterproof liquid liner is the epitome of a perfect and long-lasting eyeliner that once applied stays put and smudge-free. It isn't going anywhere whether you are soaked in pouring rain or cried yourself a little river. That is very impressive.

What I love the most about this liner is that it dries almost immediately. I hate waiting for makeup to dry/set/finish (I can be very impatient sometimes), so this scores another point. I find its colors very saturated and intense. I can layer this on top of other products and shadows and still get a strong look.

The extremely thin tip is surprisingly good at drawing both sharp lines and thicker ones. Like any other liquid liners, familiarity and precision come after some initial practices so don't be afraid to play around with it until you are comfortable.


I've had Intense Black for quite a while now, and there are still tons of products left. It's a very dark black color with a glossy finish. It's definitely not glittery or sparkly but has a very nice sheen when dried.

Originally, I wanted to pick up Turquoise, which is a stunning bluish green. Unfortunately, the limited edition shade sold out before I could get my hands on it, so I settled for Moss - a deep forest green color. It's decent to be used as a regular dark liner but is also vibrant enough for fun looks. Unlike Intense Black, Moss dries to a matte finish.


The bottom line is that this is an excellent product and another exceptional creation from Stila. It goes on smoothly and lasts through even my craziest days.


I can't find anything unpleasant about these Stila liners. They are long-lasting, waterproof, and smudge-free. The vivid pigmentation makes them a necessity for any makeup lovers. Price may be a little high compared to drugstore brands, but they are worth every penny. Quality and performance are flawless, so I'll have to stock up on the next round of Sephora sales.

What is your favorite eyeliner? Do you only wear black ones on a daily basis? Or how about some colorful pops to the eyes? Let me know in the comments below happy        ~Angela

  5. Moss is gorgeous. You can still see the olive shade, but then it's also dark enough as just a regular liner.

  9. Love what you did with the eyeliner I haven't had more fun with my plain winged liner in such a long time! I have the bright blue shimmery one from them but it peeled badly off my eyelid but I think its because I added a few layers!

  10. These look absolutely fantastic! My go-to eyeliner is usually MAC Fluidline which produces the most perfect winged eyeliner (provided you are using a good quality brush). What I love about the Fluidline is that it doesn't look like liquid liner - it has a very velvety texture. I love the mat finish of the colour Moss - I would prefer if the black was mat rather than super shiny. I would be interested to see how long the nib of the pen keeps it's shape as this is important for creating a winged eyeliner look! Great review though, thank you for sharing this with your readers!

  11. I really like that it is a brush and not a pencil. Makes such a difference.


    Have you tried the Chanel? It's a bit similar in a sense that it doesn't come off so watery.

  12. I've never tried the Chanel one, but I'm very interested. I've been loving a lot of their eye products lately, and I'll have to check it out soon.

  13. Zoe, MAC Fluidline is definitely one of my favorites as well. I was really surprised at the difference in finish of the 2 colors. I'd also prefer Moss's matte finish over Intense Black's glossy look. I've had Moss for a while and Intense Black for a very long time. I don't use these every single day, but I do reach for them quite often. So far, the tip is still very good, and there's still lots of products left.

  14. Sharlynn, is the bright blue shade one of the limited edition colors? I know Stila came out with a few bright ones as limited edition, but I assumed that they'll all be the same (quality wise). I'm sorry to hear that it's not working out too well for you.
