I own this liner, and doubt that you could remove it with water alone. It is waterproof and more tenacious than most. It really should be removed with eye makeup remover or something oil-based, to avoid vigorous scrubbing on the thin tissue around the eye area.

Coconut oil works great - I transfer it into a small container for the bathroom, and just swipe a tissue over it and with minimal effort my eyes are clean! I use this eye liner every day and coconut oil is my go to.

I've used both Stila and now this pen, and I would never go back to Stila. This pen works great on my upper lash line and even without primer doesn't bleed into any fine lines/wrinkles on my lids. I find it's much more solid and black too, I find Stila's a bit watery.

I just returned this and am sticking with the Stila. The Stila does a fantastic job of lasting all day, it's easier to apply, and not an act of desperation to remove at the end of the day like the Marc is.

I switched to this from Stila too and I regret it. If it goes on too thick it can feel sticky all day, and the tip of this eyeliner pen starts to fray after awhile of daily use. I'm going straight back to Stila once my Precision Pen runs out.

Nope! I used this eyeliner for quite awhile before it dried out. I would say I've had it for at least 5 months before I noticed it getting dry. I would also perhaps return the Stila for another one in case the one you got was defective because I've never had a problem with the Stila one in terms of it drying out. Make sure the lid snaps on tightly/fits properly on the pen so it doesn't dry out.

I found the same issue with Stila eyeliner and tried several alternatives. To me, the Marc Jacobs eyeliner lasts quite a bit longer. It is different than Stila though. The Marc Jacobs has almost a vinyl finish to it (which I personally love) and I find it VERY easy to apply. It has a specific look where Stila is a little more "everyday" to me. That said, the Marc Jacobs is my new go-to despite the cost. Worth every cent to me. Lasts all day long and does not budge, despite a sweaty midday workout. I can't say that I had the same success with Stila. Hope that helps!

I have found this to wear much better than Tarte's pot/crème liners. You do need to give it a few minutes to set (not unlike the MJ pencils). You may want to wait a bit before applying mascara as that seems to be when you open your eyes fully and risk transferring to your brow bone.
