Review: Stila Smudgepot in Black

Hello everyone!

First off, I want to thank each and every one of you for your support on my Derma Roller expedition ^_^ That really means a lot to me coz very few people around me understands why I'm undergoing through this and why I'm paying a large amount of money for that. So, it's really great "hearing" your support.

Now, let's go to the review! I got this from my GTalker friend Chrissy. She messaged me that she has a Stila Smudgepot in Black in a travel sized container. And she informed me about it because she knows I wanted to try it for the longest time hehe ^_^

What I like about this liner:

-Very easy to apply. I like this better than MAC fluidline coz this is creamier.
-Very true to color on the pot. I only need one swipe/layer to have an opaque black liner.
-Dries up pretty fast so it doesn't transfer on my lid when I blink during application and even during the day.
-Affordable because you only need a very small amount of product per use.
-Doesn't fade or smudge if you have an eyeshadow base underneath it.

What I don't like about it:

-It smudges (I have oily lids) if I don't put a base underneath. As in I look like a racoon haha

Over-all Rating: 4/5. This is a very good eyeliner in terms of staying power and color payoff as long as you have a base. And since I always put a primer anyway, it's not really a problem for me :)

Will I repurchase? Yup! But I don't think I need to buy another one soon. This pot will last me a long time fore sure.

Here's a shot when I swatched it without any base.

And I wet it with water then rubbed it. It did not disappear totally, just got blurred.

This is what makes me wonder though. It doesn't smudge on the back of my hand even if I wet it and scrub it but whenever I put it on my lids without any primer, I will definitely look like a racoon after 5 hours. Even with my sister who has dry skin, this liner smudges without primer. Hmm, good thing that I don't mind having another step on my eye makeup application.

Will I recommend it? Yup! It's really worth the money. Everyone has different type of eyes so it may smudge on me without primer but not on you. But nevertheless, I will definitely and strongly advice everyone to apply an eyeshadow primer before using this product ^_^

What about you? What's your favorite eyeliner? Till next time. Bye!
