Stila Kajal, where have you been all my life?
Maybe I am really late in the game on this, but since I have been hearing so much about Stila Kajal eyeliner lately, I thought I would give ’em a go. Love at first swipe.
They come in eight different colors and but the ones I have been trying are Emerald (deep green) and Smokey Quartz (deep charcoal grey).
These are some seriously soft and creamy eyeliners folks. No joke. I am not sure I have ever used anything quite like them before. They almost feel like gel in pencil form, they are so smooth.
Not only are they smooth, they are very opaque and stay on the waterline pretty nicely. There is absolutely no tugging on my lid when applying these, and they blend out very nicely also.
L to R: Smokey Quartz, Emerald
L to R: Emerald, Smokey Quartz
Emerald is a deep green with a hint of silvery shimmer. Smokey Quartz is a dark charcoal grey. These swatches are ONE swipe!!!
There are a couple caveats with these liners in my opinion though. One is that they are so creamy that they wear down a little fast. I can see myself sharpening them into oblivion pretty quickly if I used them all the time. The second is the price, which is a little high. They are $18.00 each.
I am amazed that I never tried these until recently and if you are looking for an ultra-smooth liner with maximum waterline staying power, you might have good luck with these.
Have you tried these yet?
