    Comments about Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner:

    I wanted to love this as my friends have given it rave reviews and the Ulta rep at my store suggested it as well since I asked her to direct me to the best waterproof eyeliner. I bought it in Ironfish - which is simply a great neutral color. It went on so smoothly and was so easy to apply BUT ... it did not stay on. Seriously it faded within an hour or so. I have super watery eyes & every liner I have ever purchased has disappointed in that area. So it gets an A+ in all categories but will walk away with a D in terms of staying power.

      I'm a hairstylist, with very oily eyelids, so combination of styling products thru out the day makes it worse.. this product does not smudge which is good, it just kinda wears off somehow, so before day's end its basically non existent. I'm sure it works perfectly under better conditions!..i will return, $20+ for eyeliner that doesn't do what I need is little pricy!

                    Hi Stuti,

                    That is totally personal preference. If your skin is warm and your hair is dark, I would say a classic black like "Stingray" is totally appropriate. If you would like to smudge it out and use as a smoky shadow, I would say you could try a sparkly-bronze like "Lionfish" or a matte warm-brown like "Spice". Have fun and play!

                • Q:

                  Where is Triggerfish? The other color (Metallic Moray) you suggested is too brown for me. Triggerfish was the best neutral with just a little sparkle. It was not too dark (like Stingray or Graphite) so it worked well for everyday without layering it with anything else.

                    Hi Suse,

                    Triggerfish is no longer carried in Ulta's assortment. If you're looking for something silver-y with a little sparkle (like Triggerfish, but less silver) try Metallic Umber. Moray is more green, so I understand why that was a leap from the color you were used to using.

                  Could you consider bringing back triggerfish? There is no other color like it, and it has been my only eyeliner for several years! I notice I am not the only one asking for its return.

                    Thanks so much for your feedback! I know, triggerfish was a beautiful shade. If you want to try to recreate with a touch more bling, try smudging out Graphite and layering Glitter & Glow liquid eyeshadow on top in the shade Diamond dust.

                    Hi Marissa,

                    Our smudge stick eyeliners do require quite a few twists initially to propel out of the container. For a new eyeliner, I hold the top part stationary, and twist the base of the component about 15 times before I start to see the product propel upward. Once you have the component engaged, propelling the product up is a breeze.

                    I hope this helps :)
