stuff from (l’il) steph: stila smudge stick waterproof eyeliner

The Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Turquoise is a part of the Stila Limited Edition Festival Collection for Summer 2013. I’m a huge fan of Stila smudge sticks in general and in terms of formula, I couldn’t find any fault with turquoise. It’s pigmented in one swipe, very creamy, and did not tug on my eyelids in the least bit. It’s definitely waterproof, but nothing that a simple eye makeup remover can’t handle. Additionally, it’s retractable so you don’t have to dig through your beauty tools to find a sharpener. Last but not least, the colour… is gorgeous!

I’m going to honest here. My first thought when I saw the colour of the eyeliner was What the heck am I supposed do with this?” But after thinking it over for a while, I found that Stila’s Turquoise eye liner is actually quite wearable and just as versatile as any old black eye liner pencil (but 10x the colour and 10x the fun).

In the photos, I used it…

  • on the upper lash line for winged liner
  • on the lower waterline for a pop of colour
  • all over the lid as an eye shadow

Additionally, you could use it…

  • on the inner corner of the eye
  • as an eye shadow base to make eye shadows stand out

All in all, a great product in a beautiful shade that’s perfect for summer.
