I love the look of a great cateye. what I DON’T love is liquid liner that runs, smudges super easily or fades away. I received a sample of STILA’s Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in black (shiny, jet black) from Sephora a few months ago and it has been my go-to liquid liner.
The formula is waterproof, so once it dries it doesn’t move. It has a fine, marker tip applicator, so you can do a really thin line, or go super bold and wing it out. I have small eyes (and sometimes do my makeup in the car) so I basically live at those extremes and this applicator is really easy for me to manipulate. I also didn’t have any issues with it flaking. At $20, it’s a little more than what I would normally pay but it’s definitely worth it. You have to use makeup remover to get it off so once you apply it in the a.m., that’s it!
Make sure you apply powder to your lids before using, and allow it to fully dry before applying anything else. The times that I did NOT do this, it got on my crease (like any other liquid would do) and I had to reapply it. Other than that, it won’t move until you decide to remove it.
