I have always bought drugstore liner thinking there couldn't be a difference with the higher priced ones. Boy, was I wrong. This stuff glides on like silk and doesn't tug on my eyelid at all when I am trying to put on. Beautiful color and stays put. Lesson learned.

KILLS CONTACT LENSES! If you wear contacts STEER CLEAR of this item!! This eyeliner left a waxy film over my lenses, and destroyed 2 pairs of contacts in literally a blink of an eye (ok, maybe it was two blinks...)! My coworker also bought this (she didn't use the one I bought) and tried it with her contacts and the same waxy film showed up! Needless to say "HATED IT"! Otherwise, if you don't wear contacts, this eyeliner is great! Runs/bleeds a little, but I'd use it if I had naturally perfect vision!

I love LOVE this product and the colors. It goes on very smooth. I have several colors, however there is one HUGE issue for me. I use it as an eye liner but after less than an hour, the color is all over in the crease of my eye lid. It does not stay where it needs to stay. Even if I use it on the whole lid, it still gets every where. If you want a pop of color liner, do not use. It will get everywhere your lid touches.

I almost didn't buy this eyeliner because I had read in previous reviews that it destroyed their contacts. I wear contacts daily all day long. I decided to give it a try and am thankful I did. I haven't had a single problem with it yet and have even put the eyeliner on before and after I'd had my contacts in. So, I give this product a double thumbs up!

I found these eyeliners a few months ago and was delighted to see them on Zappos!!! They are simple to use, the color stays in place and the different shades available are awesome!!! I'm in the process of buying every shade!

I read another review for these that said they had left a waxy buildup on contact lenses and I was like "yeah, whatever." Well, I should have listened! Horrible, I was literally blind by the end of the day. I could not drive or even read street signs! Otherwise, the colors are beautiful and it glides on beautifully and stays put. But if you wear contact lenses, do not buy this!

Very dark bluish-black. It goes on very smooth and is definitely an upgrade from drugstore brand eyeliner. However, my eyes are a little watery so it tends to bleed/smudge by the afternoon.

Stila makes the best eyeliners hands down - pencil and liquid. They own this market. The smudge sticks are incredibly creamy, can be smudged to soften, and once it sets, its on for the rest of the day. I have used these as eye shadows as well and they all look gorgeous. I have never had a problem with smudging or smearing, and unlike urban decay eyeliners, you don't have to reapply in the middle of the day. They glide on like butter. Well worth the money. Wont use any other liners.

Love this eyeliner in lionfish. It is a perfect pigment rich, long-wearing, everyday brown that glides on smoothly without tugging. Thank you to other reviewers for describing it as non orange (the tube looks slightly on the orangey side of brown) and the shimmer is not at all overpowering. Unlike the other reviewer I have not had issues with my contacts and though I used it primarily on my upper lash line, I have not had issues when using it on my water line. I will buy again provided it does not run out too quickly. Otherwise, a tad pricey for me for everyday wear.

This eyeliner is amazing; after you apply it let it set for a few seconds and it won't move at all. Great quality. Love these eyeliners as much as my Urban Decay ones.

I love this eyeliner. I have oily lids, but I don't have the problem of smearing I normally have with other brands. I saw someone state in an earlier review that it ruins contact lens, but I haven't experienced that issue in the 2 years I've been using this. This item is always sold out at Sephora, so I am very happy it is readily available here at Zappos!

Best eyeliner I have ever used. I received a free sample of this through a beauty sample box and was amazed at how it stayed on all day, so I had to buy it. I usually spend a dismal amount on eyeliner, so this was a big deal for me but way worth it. I wear contacts and most makeup smudges off throughout the day if I put eye drops in or anything. This didn't hurt my eyes/contacts at all or leave a film as others mentioned.

The products from Stila are always of excellence quality. This eye liner remains in place without smearing or running. I can apply it on in the morning and it remains just as perfect until I remove it at night. When you combine the convenience of purchasing and delivery there is no other way to shop.

I have been searching for an eyeliner that was waterproof,smudgeless, and fade-proof. Also one that was very pigmented. I put this eyeliner on and I knew right then that I would never use any other eyeliner ever again. I have very watery eyes, as well as contacts. I put this stuff on my waterline and I had absolutely no irritation. It is by far the only eyeliner I have ever used that has kept its promise. Stila is not only an amazing brand, but every product that I have bought from them has done exactly what it claims it will do. It is very common for the beauty industry to lie about certain products, but still is a straight up honest brand you can trust.

This is the best eyeliner ever! Since its waterproof you can use it on your lower inner eyelid and it won't fade away. Love it!

I personally love this eyeliner; however, I recently received contacts and after using this eyeliner, it puts a film over the contact causing you to not be able to see! I also went through 2 pairs trying to make it work. I haven't found a replacement yet as this used to be my favorite!
