Stila cosmetics are all natural, and cruelty-free meaning they don't test on animals.

I returned Stila (see my review) and settled on Tarte EmphasEyes Aqua gel eyeliner! As natural as it gets & cruelty free!!

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.

The Stila liner does contain methylparaben and propylparaben which I only found out upon looking at the package. I don't know other liquid liners that are paraben free,sorry!I'm going to start looking for ones though.

Question
Softer type line???
When applying, can you control how much product is coming out, (by either pressing lighter or dab off excess on a tissue), so you can get more of a softer, smudgier, type line? Thanks.

While it's wet, immediately after applying, if you smudge it with a Q-tip or tissue you can get a softer, smokier look.

You can control how much product is coming out. I pressed very lightly on my lower lash line and the line was extremely thin and nice. I can't really do a soft smokey look with this,when I mess up and wipe the liner off, most of it comes off. My prestige pencil liner does a much better job at this. I would say this helps to create a really polished neat look. I really like making cat eyes with my Stila liner,but I actually think I'm going to go back to my pencil liner. Stila liner dries fast,so you have to work quickly if you want to smudge it.

this does not smudge at all. The flow is even, but it dries almost immediately, so it's not for a smudgy, soft look. It is a hard, even line. Great for a vintage cat eye look. You can soften it just a bit by applying some shadow over the line.

Yeah I don't think it's that waterproof either, I can wipe it off with a qtip after I've first applied it. Maybe at the end of the day it is more waterproof but you can definately get it off with hot water.

this eye liner removes easily with regular make up remover. What I love most about it is stays on all day, doesn't give me panda eyes and because I'm a contact lens wearer, it doesn't break apart should my eyes tear. I do not use eye make up remover. You can't beat it for the price - I've tried everything and only wish someone told me about this Stila eyeliner much sooner. It would have saved me alot of grief.

This product does wash off easily enough, but I ended up returning it a week after I bought it. I love Sephora and do not mind spending the money if the products are good, but this might be the worst liquid liner I have ever tried (including drugstore brands).

I would say it comes off too easily without soap and water though. One smudge of your finger after having it on for a couple of hours and the liner would smudge...not normal for a liquid eyeliner pen.

The best eyeliner I have found is Kat Von D's Tattoo Pen. Granted, it stays on and you would probably be better off using an eye makeup remover to take it off. But it is virtually smudgeproof and lasts all day. A couple days, I haven't felt like taking it off so I leave it on and just do a but of touch up in the morning...but even then it doesn't smudge at all!!!

Hope this helps!

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.

I apply a pretty thick line (I have small eyes) so it lasts about a good two months for me. This is not including everyday usage though so you might want to calculate that in as well. I would imagine with daily usage and a moderately thin line, it can last you two-two and a half months?

I usually re-up on this liner every month or month and a half. I would like to include that I do wear it everyday and touch-up my makeup twice a day. \
Tip: It's wise to purchase more than one at a time if possible as they do tend to run out a lot..

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.

It's strange but I've found that some stores actually don't carry this brand (like the Sephora in scottsdale :( but I just order it online or pick some up when I go to Tucson) I'm not sure where you're from but since it's already a little pricey you could probably just add some mascara and something else to your order and get free shipping. On the west coast it takes about a week once your order has been processed.
