    Comments about Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner:

    I was looking forward to this eyeliner because I usually love Stila. When I got it the applicator wouldn't move the liner up when I twisted it, it just stayed where it was. I even tried twisting it the other direction, but nothing happened. When I tried to apply it, the liner just broke off of the applicator entirely. Since I can't twist it up to get more I can't use it. The liner also felt very soft like it was melting.

    Comments about Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner:

    I got the color in black/brown which is very nice. The liner itself is very creamy and goes on very easily, however because of this it smudges very easily. If I try to use this to tight line my upper lids I have problems with it smudging onto my contacts, which I've never had a problem with using other liners. It will also run if I try to use it on my lower eye. I've also had problems with the tip breaking while applying which is annoying because it's one of their prestige brands... so for the price you don't want to be wasting product. I won't be buying this again even though I love the color.

          The only eyeliner I use. It doesn't melt and give me raccoon eyes. Love the "sparkle" of Tetra and Metallic Umber. Awkward to get product to advance at first (read other reviews at Stila as well).

                • 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.

                    Hi Pat!

                    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.

                  A few years back I had this Stila eyeliner, but had to return it because the product would not roll up, hence not being able to use the product. Has this issue been fixed?

                    A:

                    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 :)
