Stila Cosmetics, founded by makeup artist Jeanine Lobell in 1994, is giving you a good reason to stock up on beauty products like liquid lipstick, eyeliner, eye shadow, mascara, makeup brushes and more. Recently, the iconic makeup line partnered with YouCam Makeup app to allow customers to try on products virtually.
This is a mechanical pencil eyeliner with a soft, melty formula that glides onto eyes without pulling and tugging. The formulation is soft and creamy with a velvety texture. Since it is very soft, a lighter touch is enough for application. If a lot of pressure is applied, it may end up mushing the product. The pigmentation is bang on with this one as I said before and gives full on color with one swipe. Since this is a retractable pencil, the tip may become smudged with continuous use.
What makes the Stila eyeliner so popular is the long lasting formula! The black pigment flows evenly out of the marker tip and once applied, it resists any sort of smudging. I find the marker tip to be pretty similar size to other liquid eyeliners out there in the market. Compared to some of my other favorites (Fenty Flyliner, It Cosmetics Superhero), I find the Stila tip to be a touch more stiff. It has fantastic staying power and holds up against my eye rubbing at work.
The best eyeliner stays on as long as possible while looking great, with deep pigmentation and perfect, uniform coverage, and comes off without a huge hassle. After more than 100 collective hours researching eyeliners; considering more than 100 gels, pencils, and liquids; and testing more than 50, we've found the three best eyeliners in pencil, liquid, and gel: Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner pencil, Revlon Colorstay Skinny Liquid Liner, and the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner.
The Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner is the best pencil-format liner: The retractable crayon comes out in a thin column, goes on the softest and smoothest, and sets to a finish that lasted the longest of the eyeliners we tested. The pigmentation was not the darkest or most even, but the application experience and staying power won our panel over.
The best liquid eyeliner is the Revlon Colorstay Skinny Liquid Liner. Its extra-narrow, felt-tip brush smoothly and easily deposits an inky matte line that retains its sharp-edged look better than any other liquid liner we tried. However, in our full-day tests, all of the liquid eyeliners had trouble staying put the whole day.
And if you're looking for serious staying power as well as a versatile product, the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner was the best gel eyeliner we tested. Our testers found the Bobbi Brown formula made the smoothest, cleanest, and most even pitch-black line of the gels we tested. Testers said it set to a matte finish that held its shape throughout the day without being a pain to get off. Gel requires a separate brush and takes a little more finesse to apply than other formats, but it's worth getting the hang of if you need your eyeliner to put in long hours or survive strenuous conditions like sweaty summers.
In addition to getting input from experts, we trawled through dozens of websites, lists, and guides to give us the broadest possible perspective on how people use eyeliner and what they like their eyeliners to do. We consulted resources like Paula's Choice, CosDNA, and documentation from the FDA to shape our understanding of ingredients. We read thousands of user reviews across Ulta, MakeupAlley, Amazon, and Sephora, not to mention dozens of beauty blogs and both independent and established publications to figure out what was popular and why (or why not).
On a personal note, I've spent countless hours steeping myself in today's burgeoning eyeliner culture, studying eyeliner looks, watching eyeliner tutorials, and trying various styles and methods of application on myself. After many, many hours of practice and refining my technique and tools, I can paint a mean cat-eye.
Like most makeup, eyeliner is not meant to last forever and needs replacing, ideally every few months. The longer you wait, the worse your product will behave, because ingredients will degrade or evaporate and bacteria may grow, even with preservatives in the formula. So if you're running out, or your product is getting stiff, gunky, or dry, we have the best new ones to invest in. If you're unhappy with your eyeliner, it's worth it to switch.
On a special formulation note: If you like your pencil or liquid eyeliner okay but it doesn't seem to stay on very well throughout the day without frequent adjustments, and you would like an eyeliner that does, you should specifically consider investing your time (and money) in getting and learning to use our gel pick. While gels require a little more practice, they dry faster, travel less, and stay on longer, according to our experts and panel testers. When smudged with a softer brush or Q-tip, they can even stand in for pencil liners, but stay on hours longer.
I wouldn't expect an eyeliner sold exclusively at Barney's to cost any less than $42, plus tax. It was the most expensive product on my list. The eyeliner I was going to Barney's to see was a felt-tip liquid pen that had received glowing reviews on a couple of beauty blogs and a recommendation by one of the makeup artists I interviewed. It was called Surratt Auto-Graphique.
I descended the staircase and passed makeup counters crammed with salespeople and products and brands. It's as close as I've gotten to time travel, going to a place where people used to sit together and consult about your appearance and sell you things under the guise of helping you, despite the fact that they're being paid by a very specific company to do so. A short distance from La Mer's booth, famous for selling $190 half-ounce containers of eye cream, I found the Surratt counter.
When we set out to pick one good eyeliner, eventually we realized we needed to pick three. Thanks to an uptick in certain trends like cat-eye liner and other graphic looks, \"eyeliner\" means so much more than a pencil. We tested products broken down into three categories: pencil eyeliners in a sharpenable or mechanical format, liquids in dip-brush or pen formats, and gel eyeliners in pot format.
Precise eyeliner looks do take skill, but it's much easier to attain and maintain the look you want with the right product. A good makeup artist can always overcome a bad eyeliner at the point of contact, but the same eyeliner can fail on a simple, relaxed day of wear when challenged by sweat, tears, or weather.
First, a good eyeliner should be easy to apply: It should go on smoothly, it shouldn't catch on your eye skin, and shouldn't leave gaps in coverage or be low in pigmentation, requiring multiple strokes. It was incredible how many of the \"black\" eyeliners we tested look faded or patchy and gray. These were easy eliminations. Others were a fine texture and color, but feathered or cracked badly while they dried.
Third, the eyeliner should come off as easily as possible. Based on a survey we did with more than 800 respondents, there are a fair number of eyeliner users who would like to swipe on an eyeliner in a matter of seconds, have it remain perfect all day, and then be able to gently mist their faces with water and have the eyeliner particles just drift off into the breeze. We are here to say that perfect eyeliner does not exist. Overall, respondents prioritized an eyeliner that stays on over one that is easy to get off, so we gave endurance more weight than easy removal. You\"ll still need makeup remover, but we gave points to eyeliners that would slide off and attach to the remover-soaked cotton pad, rather than simply leave a dark smear all over your skin.
As a more minor corollary, we prioritized black eyeliners that were, well, black. If reviews reported that the pigmentation in an eyeliner was not dark or faded easily, we discarded it from consideration. (The only thing worse than having to draw a perfect cat-eye is having to draw it a second time, matching the first perfectly.) We did not consider the range of other colors a given eyeliner might come in and did not test any colors other than black. Us vouching for an eyeliner is not necessarily an endorsement for that eyeliner in other colors.
We also did not focus on \"water-resistant,\" \"waterproof,\" \"smudge-proof,\" or hours-long wear claims when selecting eyeliners. We selected products based on our own research and testing and judged them from there.
We then put the eyeliners through a battery of substance tests to see how they withstood contact, including hard smudging from a Q-tip, water, saline solution, coconut oil, facial soap, and makeup remover. The test was designed to see which eyeliners were easily unseated by simulated skin sweat and oil and which were not. We could also see which ones responded well to makeup remover or face wash and which did not, either by smearing or resisting removal. We then evaluated and rated the eyeliners' integrity to determine five eyeliners in each category to send to panelists.
Once the eyeliners were narrowed down, we gave each set of five eyeliners to three different panels, with labels and packaging obscured. Testers wore each eyeliner for two one-day trials and logged their experiences, rating each eyeliner and giving qualitative observations, including how well the eyeliner stayed on and how easily it came off. Testers were not allowed to reapply or fix their eyeliner during the day to get a full picture of how the eyeliners would wear off, if at all, during the day, and not at all because I am sadistic or evil.
Some people are concerned about parabens, a common type of preservative found in small amounts in makeup, and cosmetics companies have started marketing certain products as \"paraben-free\" to target this demographic. However, parabens are safe for the general population, according to both Romanowski and King. Parabens also serve the very important purpose of keepi
