i don't believe it's silicone based. if it were so, it would smudge way too easily, a quality I would not appreciate. it smudges enough and stays long. hope that helps.

No. I should say that I am 99.9% positive that you cannot. However, if there is a product that you want and it is not available in the store or is out of stock, an employee will give you a code for free shipping on that item that is good for a week.

I don't think so (they don't have the space to handle customer orders thus the web site for online shopping). I do know if the store is out, they will give you a code number to enter online so your shipping is free. You can have your purchase shipped to your job or a family member's home if that is more convienant for you.

answer 3
No, this product is not all natural/"clean". It contains at least one paraben, methylparaben, and a couple other ingredients that could be of some concern including phenoxyethanol, propylene glycol, and laureth-4. These concerns are mostly because of allergies, immunotoxicity, and irritation. It scores a 4/10 on the Cosmetics Database website, making it a moderate hazard. Although I've switched to almost all "clean" cosmetics, this is one I still continue to keep in my makeup bag despite the hazard because of how long-lasting it is.

I just purchased this in dark brown. Stila really means "DARK brown." It's a beautiful rich, very dark, sable, brown. It dries to that color and is long lasting. The applicator is the best I've tried out of the pen types. I don't think you'll be disappointed in this. I know I will be using this for as long as Stila makes it.

White eyeliner goes on your waterline. Be careful because it can wind up looking very obvious. A nude eyeliner is better for that wide eyed look.

I would use it as a highlighter - on your brow bone and inner corners of your eyes. It's easy to blend and soften if you smudge it with your finger while it's still wet.

I wouldn't recommend it since it is a liquid consistency. Brands should make a gel nude eyeliner for the waterline, that would be awesome! Unfortunately I don't think this one would work out for that purpose, it could irritate the eyes.

I wouldn't recommend this if you're using it on your water line. But if you're using it just below you could give that a go although, I don't suggest this for lining your bottom. For your water line I'd instead suggest the urban decay 24/7 glide on or the rimmel scandal eyes. They're both pencils but they go on sooo smooth. You shouldn't find a problem.

The color is not as intense, however they both look very good. If you want an extremely bold eyeliner you might try using two coats. The color is very bold anyway so I do not think you will be disappointed that is not SUPER pigmented. I would recumbent ordering the pink one and if you like it then order the blue, as the pink is slightly more pigmented than the blue.

The midnight blue is fantastic! Acts much like the black. The peacock blue has issues. Pretty shade but does not hold up well. I would assume that would also be a problem with the pink.

I too have blue eyes and fair skin. My eye color seems to stand out better when I use a navy blue eye liner or dark brown (NOT black). If you don't have dark circles under your eye, or redness around the eye area, plum is a nice color for blue eyes as well.

Dark Brown VS Teal Liner Container
I purchased the dark brown & teal liquid waterproof liner. When I got home and applied them, I noticed the teal liner doesn't come with a bearing inside the pencil to shake the liquid, but the dark brown did. Also "seemed" like the teal was running out...

Trying to figure out if I bought a used liner that was empty, or if the colors differ with how it's manufactured.

I don't own dark brown, but I have both the black and teal, as well as a couple other colors. The packaging is the same on all of them and they all worked well straight out of the package. It sounds like you should exchange your teal. It should not seem dried out until it is used up.
