Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner Pen Review

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner Review

This is actually an item that I didn’t think I would ever purchase. Why? Because I just couldn’t wrap my mind around a pen shaped eyeliner. I purchased the same style eyeliner from ELF about seven (yes seven) years ago. It was dry when I received it, and I chalked it up to being a pen shape. Now, I am not saying that ELF’s eyeliner pen is bad as of today, they may have improved it in due time. Hell, I don’t even know if they sell it anymore!

So, why do I own this? This was in a little Sephora bag that my boyfriend, Todd, surprised me with recently. He is the sweetest, and I adore him! I don’t know if he will be reading this, but THANK YOU SWEETIE!

The applicator is a felt tip, and it is a bit flimsy at the very tip. I can see this possibly being a problem for some, but I don’t have any problem using it. The cap feels spring loaded and very secure. I suggest that this be stored upside down, so you can get the most out of your product. I have heard very, very bad things about how quickly this pen can dry up (usually about 3 months). I haven’t had this product long enough to know, but I have had absolutely no problems so far. My guess is that the pen isn’t being stored properly? I will do an update post once this thing is dry/all used up. Who knows, it may be booted off of my HG (holy grail) list… Well, I guess you know that this will be a positive review!!

I feel naughty for recycling a photo, but I think that it shows the product very nicely. This pen is SO easy to use, and I get wings so sharp, “they could kill a man”. I usually get both of my wings applied in a minute or less with this eyeliner, and they always look FAB. I have fallen asleep with this liner on (unintentionally actually), but it was ALMOST perfect when I woke up in the morning. I literally touched up the spots that had some wear and went about my day. My eyes have never gotten irritated with this eyeliner. I have had problems with some liquids in the past, they burn my eyes! Some people experience flaking with this pen, and I haven’t had that problem AT ALL! This may be a love/hate product. Just know: Sephora has a great return policy, and don’t feel embarrassed if you want to return any products.

This product retails for $20 at Sephora for 0.016oz. Oh my, that is $1,250/oz!! You know what I may be doing? Looking for a drug store dupe until I am employed. I would buy this product forever if I could, but I will let you in on a big secret: I AM BROKE! 😀

Well, let me give you the run down:

Pros:

  • Pigmented
  • Long lasting (with out primer)
  • Ease of use
  • Sleek packaging
  • Wings so sharp, they could kill a man

Cons:

  • Oh me, oh my that price! (psst, I would repurchase.)

Blushing Daisy Score: 9.5/10 

Why didn’t I dock more points for the price? Because I think this item is worth the splurge. I may reevaluate this score if I find a good drugstore dupe! For now, I am EXTREMELY pleased with this item. I don’t know how the quality of the colored liners are, but speaking for the black, I am quite fond.

Do you own this product? How do you like it? What other pen style liners have you used?

  1. I’ve had mine for maybe six months and it hasn’t dried up yet. The pointy end does get a little dry but a good shake of the pen and a few quick lines on the back of my hand usually gets it going like new again. I prefer this pen to my drug store liquid pen liners! Great review!

    • Thank you! That is good to know. I feel like the tip has gotten even more flimsy since I wrote the review, but I am still able to get nice lines. I really do love this product!

  2. Normally I use pencil, liquid and gel eye liners. Haven’t tried pen yet! But I think, I should try this pen out. I have been searching for a nice liner which gives a glossy finish because I have lots of matte finish liners.
    P.S Your eyes are beautiful! 🙂

    • Thank you!! I really like the finish of this pen! It is really quick and easy to use as well. I have been itching to get another gel liner! I haven’t used one in 6+ years! x)
