If you haven't heard about this life-changing eyeliner, then listen up! YOU MUST TRY THIS EYELINER! Not only does this product rock our socks off, it also stays on all day, so your eyes don't start looking like a patchy raccoon (this definitely happens if you don't believe me).

The water-based precise liner is perfect for getting into really tight and difficult areas when tightlinging. With some regular eyeliners, it is hard to get in between the crefices of your upper inner eyelide. However, since the product has a super fine tip, it works well for this purpose. The product also comes in 6 different colors, so you can wear it according to your taste and style,

Overall, this eyeliner is our top pick and lives up to the Stila name. We promise you will be happy with this product in your makeup collection.
