I bought the Stila Smudgepot in Kitten, and it's a good product with great longevity. Like most gel or cream eye products, they do tend to dry out and I think mine may have been sitting on the shelf for awhile because I really had to work to get through the top layer. But once I got into the jar, the product was soft and easy enough to apply.
This product "sets" VERY QUICKLY, and this is both a pro and a con (but for me, mostly a con). This particular shade (Kitten) has a LOT of shimmer and must be applied lightly and blended carefully or else it highlights any imperfections in your eyelid skin. I tried several times, but each time I could never quite get it blended fast enough - it would set while I was trying to smooth it out and it ended up looking uneven and clumpy, and worse, my eyelids looked like lizard skin. Long-wearing gel products do tend to be hard on older (or just sun-damaged) skin, and when you add in the shimmer, it's a disaster.
If you're over 35, unless you have flawless lids, you might want to steer clear of these. Otherwise, if you can apply and smudge it quickly enough, it's a great product that's very versatile.
I got the box, and was soo excited because i had heard good things about it. I took out my brushes and it was crazy thick. I tried to get some on my brush and ended up having to sweep the top for just a little bit. It was like a rock!! Anyway, i tried to put it on and the little that did go on, flaked off in a matter of i would say 10 seconds. yeah, not a fav

I have been using this gel liner for years and have nothing but praise for this product. It is highly pigmented, goes on smoothly and stays all day.
I have seen the poor reviews and can honestly say I have never experienced any issues with this product. With Ulta's fantastic return policy there should not gave any issues with returning or replacing the product.

I put on makeup daily, my eyeliner has to be matte, creamy (not gel), and all day lasting! This is compatible to the one from Tarte I used to use before they discontinued. I love it!!!

I have used the liquid eyeliner, but my daughter told me as you get older the potted eyeliners are better and can go in slimmer so it doesn't close off your eyes. I came in and found the only potted one was Stila and have never had problems with their products before so I grabbed it.

I have used a lot of gel liners and this one always beats the others. I buy multiple times and am never dissatisfied. Dries out slow and glides on like a dream.

Best liner I've used, better than any crayon or felt tip!

- Cruelty Free
- Easy to apply
- First eyeliner I ever used. I bought multiple colors and repurchased it again and again
- Smudges everywhere and won't last long (especially around the corners of the eyes)

This is the worst liner I have ever tried and I have tried many gel pot liners. I have bought it twice thinking maybe it was my own fault not closing it correctly or a defective product. It dries it very fast, by the 2nd 3rd use it is so dry and flaky. I always make sure I close it right but it is still dry. I have used different brushes as well with no improvement. When you apply it, its so bad and crusty. This is just a horrible product I DO NOT RECOMMEND!

I was super excited to use this because the liquid liner by Stila is my holy grail eyeliner. This eyeliner unfortunately just didn't do it for me. I had trouble layering, it went on thick. It wasn't black either, more of a grayish tone. I wanted to love this. I have olive-toned skin and it just didn't work for me. I applied it on my roomie who is white and has dry skin, went on like a dream and looked dark on her. Maybe this just doesn't work for oily lids or darker skin tones?
It's very creamy, pretty smudge proof.

save your money because this is the same quality as a cheaper product. fades in a matter of hours and transfers no matter what I do to prevent it.

There is a reason it gets good reviews, it lived up to and exceeded my expectations. Silky smooth application and didn't smudge even after falling asleep with it on.
Barb M from TX
I loved most everything about this liner, the creaminess, easy to apply, nice matte finish, and stayed put! The biggest down fall and why I ended up returning it was because it says "black" but it's more of a matte dark gray.

Goes on smooth and stays put!

I started using this a few years back when I went into Ulta to beg for makeup help. I have chronic pain that causes chronic dark circles under my eyes. I can't afford to have any of my makeup fall during the day and make them look worse. The medication I have to take makes my hands shake. It is really frustrating for someone with a previously steady hand. I no longer could use a pencil with any accuracy, and eyeshadow never seemed to holdout. This AMAZING Ulta attendant introduced me to the Smudge Pot and the idea of double lining. All I have to do is literally smudge this on my eye, then cover it with eyeshadow. Because of my unsteady hand I always have to clean the underside of my eye when I'm finished, however, after that initial fix the makeup stays until I remove it. I always double layer this product with black eyeshadow (or some other dark shade) and the result is always flawless. I use it everyday.

works as a lid base (mine is brown)
does not layer well on itself
HV from San Diego
I searched for years for an eyeliner that would stay and not come off by the end of the day or crease. Finally I found it! And I have been using this product for 2 years now. But I do apply an eye shadow base layer and eyeshadow. Then I use a thin brush to apply the smudge. It does crease if I don't put anything under it before applying. Or maybe I have greasey eyelids.
I use makeup remover at night and it comes right off.

I love how versatile this product is! I originally bought it for eyeshadow, but learned you can also use it as eyeliner. I really like being able to use one product in several ways!

it does the job for short amount of time I guess definately not worth 20 dollars for it .. I would not purchase this again. I think I will return it...
Brittany from Denver, CO
Easy to use, goes on smooth and very pigmented. I haven't had any issues with smudging, ceasing or feathering. Great product!

I'm trying to learn how to best apply this as a liner. I have high expectations that I will like it once I learn

I have used this applied thinly for day and a bit wider line when going out. Versatile.
