Your Favorite Liquid Eyeliner: Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

The best cosmetics are oft-times debated on, but it seems the best liquid eyeliner is almost universally agreed upon. When asked what the best one out there was, Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner had over 100 votes and has easily claimed victory.


Stila all-day waterproof liner pen. I have tried it all, and this one is the best. I tried to use the YSL and Laura Mercier gel pots, both transferred. The kat von d skips. The mac penultimate is atrocious. I love stila all-day pen and then I sometimes use the Mac liquidlast liquid liner to go over the flick if my hands are shaky, which they often are. -Sisqocertified

Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner ALL DAY, SON

ok guys. i’m a crier. i’m a sweater. i am just generally a gooey person. my eyes are CONSTANTLY watering. this stuff does. not. move. lined my water line? wake up - still intact. the tip is super precise, and it goes on with one swipe (no need to re-trace to make it actually black). - thetallblonde

I LOVE Stila’s Stay All Day Eyeliner. It has a very fine felt tip which allows for a lot of precision but it’s not hard to layer up if you want something more dramatic too. It also has an incredibly rich color. I think that the pen itself is the perfect width for easy manipulation, but that may vary by hand size. It never runs or flakes....the only sign of wear I can ever detect is a very subtle loss of definition (as in the line starts to bleed a little and loses its crispness) and vibrancy. These issues could probably be fixed with an eye primer but the effect is so nominal I have never cared to try. - KnopeOut

Double stars to the Stila!

On a related note, I bought one last christmas and used it a few times before LOSING IT. I’ve been in an eyeliner rut ever since, then I FOUND IT when cleaning last weekend, and it’s still good as new, even though the branding has faded off.

I had actually gone to sephora to but the Kat Von D tattoo liner, and the salesperson suggested Stila instead. Could not be happier! -
