Stila Art Of The Fine Line: Review and GIVEAWAY! CLOSED!

I have been extremely busy, as most, with the holiday bustle so I apologize for being MIA. I am returning with a perfect & hard to find GIVEAWAY! I first discovered Stila’s Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner at Ulta. I was complaining to the sales clerk that my cult favorite eyeliner kept drying out before it was empty. It’s so annoying to have to buy another one before it’s even empty.

She suggested Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner in Intense Black and I’ve been hooked ever since. It retails for $22 at Ulta. I stumbled across Stila’s Art of the Fine Line set online at Nordstrom a while back. I took so long posting this review that unfortunately they no longer carry it. When I saw the set, I thought….how perfect? I do occasionally wear shades other than black but not frequent enough to buy the full size. It’s a good way to try other shades without paying full-price. I love this set so much that I hunted one down for this giveaway!!

Here is what Stila has to say about thier Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner:

Our #1 selling waterproof liquid liner enables you to create a variety of eye-opening effects—from thin, precise lines to thick, dramatic looks. The formula glides on with ease, dries quickly and won’t smudge or run day-into-night.

The fine marker-like tip offers precise application for everyone from novices to pros and results in beautifully defined eyes that will leave a lasting impression.

Benefits:

Waterproof and easy-to-use
Goes on smoothly without skipping, smudging, or pulling
Lasts all day long!

Stila’s Art of the Fine Line set comes packaged in a cute tin container. Inside there is one full-size eyeliner in the shade Intense Black and three deluxe-size shades in Midnight, Moss, and Dark Brown. There is even an insert that has instructions on achieving different looks. Although the sizes are different, all of the felt tips are the same size.

Intense Black is exactly as stated, a bold black in a matte finish. Midnight is a navy matte, Moss is a green matte, and Dark Brown is a little deceiving because it’s more of a medium brown matte. As far as I can tell they all have the same formula and apply with the same ease and precision. To be honest, I have only swatched Midnight because it just doesn’t enhance my eyes as much as the other shades.

These liners are super bold, glide on smooth, are long-lasting and have a very fine felt tips. You can get a very bold or very thin precise line if needed. I have oily lids so I always prime first, but I never have any issues with skipping or jagged lines. Liquid liners are the one thing I struggle to get perfect and with Stay All Day it’s just too easy. What I like the most is that it’s buildable if you work fast and doesn’t start crumbling if layered. It dries to a perfect matte in seconds and is smudge-proof. I wear this for 12 hours with no breakdown. I have owned this for months and none of the liners have dried out so far….huge plus for me!! It’s not as hard to remove as some liquid liners can be, but it is waterproof and does take some work to get off. This is now a staple in my daily routine and now you can make it yours!!

  1. How funny! My holy grail eyeliner is actually the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner in intense black. It’s so easy to apply and hard to mess up the perfect wing! I’ve been using this eyeliner for a few years now, I can’t find another one that can compare to it! x

  2. My fav liquid liner is the KVD tattoo liner. I was a die hard fan of these by Stila but once I found the KVD one I changed my mind. I still have some Stila ones and use them occasionally. Your so right about the dark brown. It’s not dark at all! Great giveaway love and best of luck to all. Xx

    1. I used to agree…KVD was my favorite too until I noticed it dried up before it’s halfway gone. I got tired of wasting money. I don’t wear liquid liner everyday so I like them to last. Thanks for reading!!

    1. It took me a long time to find one that I was comfortable with. There are a few that work great….I just can’t get them to work great and I think Stila is a little easier to work with than most. Thanks for following and good luck!

  4. I also enter a lot of giveaways, but always ones I like and enjoy reading and following the blogger. I love all things makeup and beauty. I have not really found a liquid eyeliner I enjoy using. I do use different eye liners and sometimes gels. I’m always open to trying new liquid eyeliners just in case I do find I like. I also love using all different colors. Thanks for the chance.
