Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner is a felt tip liner that boasts a quick-drying and long-wearing formula. I have it in black, but it does come in 7 other colors, as well. It’s a favorite of many, and its applicator is described as versatile and beginner-friendly. I was initially introduced to it through one of Sephora’s displays of recommended eyeliners. I’ve never really been in the habit of wearing liquid eyeliner on a regular basis, so I can be a little clumsy with them in general and I thought that perhaps the stiffer felt tip may be a handy help with drawing an even line more reliably.
This has a deep, glossy black formula, and it really does wear well throughout the day. I’ve never had any issues with smudging or transferring, and fading is absolutely minimal. I haven’t tested it with any particularly extreme conditions in terms of humidity or watery eyes and that sort of thing, but it is definitely a formula that I can feel confident wearing throughout the evening without checking up on my makeup.
The felt tip is very even and versatile in the thicknesses of lines it can create. The tip is very fine and I haven’t experienced any issues with stray fibers creating a messy line. The formula is applied very evenly, and it’s possible to get a very light application if you have a very light and steady hand. Any increase in pressure will create a thicker, bolder line.
Overall, I’ve been really happy with this eyeliner and feel like it performs exactly as I’d hoped it would. I have no issues with how it wears throughout the day, and the felt tip provides a great deal of control. The pen itself has been around in my collection for about a year, and during that time I’ve stored it upright as well as horizontally, and I’ve experienced absolutely no issues with it seeming dry or difficult to apply after long periods of resting in storage. It’s as good as new each time I reach for it.
