    Maybe it was just the mechanism, but the gel cylinder or whatever it is doesn't extend out of the applicator, and I can barely get any color onto my eye. It lasted a day. Not impressed.

                Comments about Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner:

                I'd probably just me, but the second this came in contact with my eyes they started watering and did not stop until I removed it an hour later. I do have trouble finding an eyeliner that doesn't burn but for the price of this product I expected more. It does stay on though because I had trouble removing it.

                        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.

                        Hi Marilyn,

                        When you first apply Smudge Stick, you have about 30 seconds to smudge the creamy formula into the lashes. You can leave it as a sharp line and let it dry down too! Once it has set and dry, it is smudge proof and waterproof.

                        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 :)
