Because of the experiences I’d had in the past with liquid eyeliner pens, I was reluctant to try one again but my favourite liquid eyeliner in the pot always takes a lot longer to apply than that of a pen, I believed. With the eyeliner pens that I’ve used in the past I found that the tip gets full of eyeshadow and so it is unable to deposit enough product as you are draw across the eyelid.
The reason I had my interest tweaked because I had seen people speaking about the Tom Ford eyeliner and I was being lured into buying it because the reviewers promised it doesn’t clog up and works amazingly. The problem is, the Tom Ford liquid eyeliner is just so expensive and I didn’t know if I could allow myself to spend so much money on an eyeliner pen!
On the Selfridges website I was putting the Tom Ford pen in the basket then deleting it, putting it and taking it out and it went on like this until I decided to see what other eyeliner pens were on the market now. This is when I spotted the Stila Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner and I thought I would give it a go and ordered it for £14.50.
I couldn’t wait to try it after it arrived and was half afraid that it would be like all the other ones I tried years ago but I was not at all disappointed. The nib of the eyeliner just keeps on drawing a lovely, jet-black line. I love how the cap of the pen has a spring-like mechanism that when you place it back onto the pen it pushes the product to the nib of the pen. I have to admit that I do have to replace the cap sometimes to get more product but I am fine with this. It takes me a lot less time to do my winged eyeliner and I am LOVING this product! Thanks, Stila!
