                      I love this liner. I apply it to my upper and lower lash line. I usually don't put product in my water line, so I can't speak to its performance there. The color is amazing (there are lots of options too) and the liner glides on smoothly, with no effort. I like to smudge my liner with a little shadow and this does really well with that technique. Also, I think it has great staying power. I ran 10 miles and it didn't budge, yet at night, I remove it easily with make-up remover. I'm very impressed with this liner.

                          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.

                          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.

                          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 :)
