This eye makeup is quite remarkable I have never used anything like it before! I am fast becoming a big fan of Stila cosmetics and so far they all perform as stated on the packaging. I purchased this smudge pen in the colour of ‘Antique’ which is a gorgeous dark nude colour which as a slight frosted tone (not a shimmer). The packaging is fantastic. At the top of the pen you simply twist to raise up the product to the length required. Perfect for preventing your pencil from snapping or damage. In the base of the pen there is a small but very effective pull out sharpener enabling you to get a precision tip on your pen. The formula is classed as a gel but I class it more of a soft textured kohl. The colours are highly pigmented and glide onto the skin effortlessly and evenly.
This is a 3-in-1 product that can be used as a primer, eyeshadow or eyeliner. Once applied you can blend with your finger or with a brush. You do need to work fairly quickly as after a few minutes the colour dries and becomes unblendable. The claim of smudge resistance and water resistance is spot on! I have rubbed this product and it does not smudge in the slightest. Even with water the colour just holds its ground! I was amazed at how resilient this is once on your skin. The colours can be layered up but even one application gives a beautiful depth of colour that does not crease or deteriorate. This product stays in place literally until I remove it. The longest period of wear has been 12 hours before removal!
With a good quality eye makeup remover the colour comes away easily and causes no irritation to the skin. I am so impressed with this product I have ordered a further 3 colours from the range. Why carry around eyeshadow, eyeliner and a primer when you can have it all in one handy pen! Fantastic product!!
