Stila Smudge Stick Eyeliners

Stila Turquoise Smudge Stick Eyeliner
Stila Turquoise Smudge Stick Eyeliner

Stila Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a twist-up pencil eyeliner (no sharpening required) that comes in a variety of shades. Last year (seriously, in June 2014!), I bought a ton of them, and I’ve been slowly working my way through them since. I’m trying to make a serious dent into my backlog (about 13,000 photos), so hope you enjoy this mega-review! 🙂

Stila Alpine Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “matte pure white.” It’s a brightened, medium white with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage in one stroke an was buildable to mostly opaque coverage in two to three layers. It lasted for eight hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Stila Black Amethyst Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “matte black purple.” It’s a blackened plum with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one pass, but it was drier and harder to build up the color–it looked very unevenly and tended to layer on itself so some parts would be opaque and others would be sheerer. It wore well for eight hours before thinning. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Stila Bluefin Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “vibrant blue sheen.” It’s a blackened navy blue with lighter warmer blue and medium blue sparkle and shimmer. The shimmer has a rather metallic sheen, but the base color is uneven and patchy at times. The texture wasn’t as creamy as the best Smudge Sticks. It lasted for eight hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Stila Espresso Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “matte medium brown.” It’s a medium brown with warm, reddish-orange undertones and a matte finish. The texture was creamy and glided on beautifully with opaque color coverage in a single pass. It wore well for nine hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Stila Gilded Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “metallic golden bronze.” It’s a light-medium, golden copper with hints of brown and a metallic sheen. The formula was lightly creamy, and it was incredibly pigmented with full coverage in one stroke. On me, the eyeliner wore well for eight and a half hours before thinning. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Stila Jade Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as an “emerald green shimmer.” It’s a medium-dark, green-based teal with a pearly sheen. It was semi-opaque in one pass, but it was lightly creamy and buildable to full opacity in two layers. It wore well for eight hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Stila Lionfish Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “deep bronze sheen.” It’s a lightly brightened, medium-dark reddish-brown with burgundy and gold shimmer that gives it a pearly sheen. It had so-so color payoff in a single pass, but it was buildable to opaque color in two layers. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Stila Metallic Umber Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “metallic grey smoke.” It’s a medium-dark, taupe-brown with warm,r eddish undertones and a pearly sheen with a faint bit of silver sparkle. It had semi-opaque color coverage in one stroke, and it was buildable to mostly opaque coverage in two to three layers. The texture was lightly creamy and didn’t tug at the lash line, while the color lasted for eight hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Stila Midnight Blue Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “matte deep navy.” It’s a muted, navy blue with cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. The texture was creamy with some slip, and it seemed to go on rather unevenly. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Stila Midnight Green Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “black emerald green.” It’s a really muted, murky olive green with warm, brown undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, while it was fairly buildable, it was never fully opaque. On me, it started to thin after eight hours of wear. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Stila Purple Tang Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “dark purple sheen.” It’s a blackened purple with cooler, violet shimmer and sparkle that gives it a more metallic finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage in one stroke, and it was buildable to mostly opaque coverage, but it looked splotchy and uneven to a noticeable degree. It lasted for eight hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Stila Sepia Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “metallic taupe.” It’s a medium-dark, golden brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It’s too warm to be pewter nor taupe to me. The texture was very creamy and soft, which helped it yield greater color payoff, but it was almost too soft and required a very light touch or else the eyeliner was prone to breakage. It lasted for eight and a half hours before thinning. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Stila Spice Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “matte mahogany brown.” It’s a medium-dark, red-toned brown with a satin finish. The texture was creamy and almost wet initially, and it glided on well but wasn’t fully opaque in one stroke. It was buildable to full opacity with two layers. On me, the eyeliner stayed on well for eight hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Stila Stargazer Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “black and gold with silver pearl.” It’s a muted black with warm undertones and a dusting of silver sparkle. It had a drier consistency that made it semi-sheer in one pass, though it was fairly buildable to mostly opaque coverage in two to three layers. It lasted for eight hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Stila Triggerfish Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “steel grey sheen.” It’s a medium-dark gray with silver sparkle that gives it a slightly metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, and the slightly drier, more sparkly texture made it harder to build evenly. It stayed on well for eight hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Stila Turquoise Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “light turquoise.” It’s a brightened, light-medium aqua that leans slightly blue (it’s cooler in tone) with a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage in a single pass, and the texture was creamy and glided on evenly. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
