Hope this frigid winter weather is behind us all! You know winter is here for too long when you tell your 7 year old daughter it’ll snow again and she rolls her eyes. Anyway, on to makeup!
I sometimes debate with myself regarding what makeup product I would choose if I must pick only one to use forever. What would you choose? I can’t make up my mind. Lipstick adds a pop of color, blush brings warmth to your face, but I must say, eyeliner gives the entire face more definition. I use all kinds of eyeliner, liquid, gel and stick. Here’s my review for the Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner.
One of the reasons I decided to give it a try is the color options. There are 29 colors in this collection! Ranging from brights to darks, neutral to fun. I have it in the colors Stingray, a jet black, Peacock, a teal,and Purple Tang, which is just that-purple.
It glides on like a dream. Barely any pressure is needed
to apply a nice even line. I’ve tried many stick eyeliners this is rated very high (those tend to be a quicker application for me so good as a mom of 2!) The color payoff seems very good. It lasts throughout the day.
The only slight negative, and I will let you in on my little tip, is that its smudgy (hence the name). It’s great for smudging into a smokey eye, but I found that it transferred onto my crease bone area since it’s so soft. To combat this, I apply the same color eyeshadow directly on the liner with a eyeliner brush. It absorbs the moisture and totally keeps it in place.
So I would definitely recommend this eyeliner for it’s color options: smoothness in application and smudge abilities. Putting powder over the liner works for me to keep it in place.
