Stila‘s created the Smudge Crayon Waterproof Primer + Shadow + Liner ($22.00). This product is definitely a must-have for the summer! It’s designed for a complete 3-in-1 application, which is great for people who are on-the-go; a simple, lightweight pencil so you don’t have to carry around three different products — and it can be applied quickly. The primer acts as a crease-proof silicone base that adheres to the eyelid and does, in fact, actually prime.
How To Use As A Shadow
You can apply it right from the stick to your lid and create a defined line as well as a smudgy, smokey effect. You can easily blend it because it doesn’t set right away, so you have a bit of time to perfect the exact look you want. It is also buildable, so if one application is not enough, it’s wonderful for several applications and doesn’t become too cakey.
How To Use As A Liner
The liner is a perfect way to define the lower lid, as well as the water line; inside of the eye, and also to tightline in the middle of each lash for more definition with your mascara.
You can control how light or dramatic you want to go with this product. It glides on very well and does not pull or tug at your eyes — this is super important, because this particular area is especially sensitive, and the thinnest part on the face, so it provides the right softness you need. You can also choose to apply this with a brush right from the stick or blend with a brush from your lid and around your eye. Or, you can simply blend and smudge by using your fingers.
The shade shown here, Pink Violet, is exquisite and can be used with any skin tone or eye color. It has a natural opalescent, glowy effect, but nothing too harsh or unnatural looking. You can wear it to the office and still keep it looking classy, or during the night for a more dramatic look. This luminescent shade can also be worn in the spring/summer months on a tanner face or even in the winter months on paler skin. I highly recommend this product not only for this exotic shade, but also for the water resistant effect, which is super important when choosing any eyeliner. The product does just as it says: a soft, blendable application; non-creasing and long-lasting for the 6-hours it claims to last.
