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!

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner Review

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?

Makeup Wish List

I have decided that it would be fun to post wish lists every once and a while! With finals coming up in less than a month, (OH MY, CAN IT JUST BE OVER ALREADY?!?!) it is hard for me to start posting tutorials.

I PROMISE that I will be filming a tutorial as soon as I have the free time.

For now, you might be able to get some inspiration from things that I am swooning over!

Let’s get to it! (-:

Clinique-Cheek-Pop-Blush

Clinique Cheek Pop (all colors)- $21 at Sephora

Oh do I even need to explain why I want these? MY NAME IS THIS BLUSHING DAISY FOR GOODNESS SAKES! I adore all of the colors, and its in the shape of my favorite flower. I have always liked Clinique, but I love them now because of this product. I am so happy that it is permanent.

Too-Faced-Melted-Liquified-Long-Wear-Lipstick

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick- $21 at Sephora

I could go for all but one of theses (no thanks to the nude). This photo has the four that I love the most! Can you tell that I prefer bright colors? It’s long wear, and I am all over that.

The Balm Cindy-Lou Manizer- $20 (with brush) from Amazon

I don’t own anything from The Balm, but I have heard great things. I also don’t own a highlight. I really like this one. I think I am a little too in love with shimmer, but that’s ok.

Hard Candy Glamoflauge in Ultra Light- $6 at Walmart

Yay for dark circles! I just bought a concealer from Cover Girl, its “meh”. I will use it, but I won’t repurchase. This concealer has good reviews and was recommended to me. I am guessing Ultra Light, but I really need to go look in person to see what shade suits me the best.

Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat- $4.75 on Amazon

I don’t think that nail polish counts as makeup, but I will throw it in anyway! I have heard great things about this top coat, and I don’t like the one that I currently own.

 

 What have you been eyeing?

Hope you enjoyed reading! It’s time for me to study now.
