Stila Topez Liner Review

Hello Blogettes,

After my last trip to Sephora I picked up something that was on my wish list list for quite some time, but never could manage to buy... and that item is Stila Kajal Liner in Topez. I have seen so many swatches and reviews on it and I had to try it out because it looked so much more natural then white liner for widening the eyes.

"Kajal eye liners are formulated to mimic the ultra-soft texture of the indian eye darkener of the same name.
The luscious formula is silky smooth and glides on perfectly, without dragging across the most fragile skin around the eye area. Delivers bold, clear, true color that blends easily and beautifies.
Texture: Extremely creamy, almost to fault. Glides on very easy with no tugs.

Blendabilty: Can easily be blended just by the swipe of a pinkie.

Smell: Slight crayon scent.

Lasting Power: This is were I was disappointed. The longest the true color stayed on was up to 3 hours max when applied to waterline. After 3 hours it faded alot. I used a peachy pink shadow to set and it stayed on up to 4 hours on my waterline with the true color. After 4hours the same fading happened but it more noticeable. The shadow actually stayed on longer then the pencil.

Other comments: I plan on trying out a brown for my upper lash line and hope that it will work better because as said it is such a lovely and creamy liner. The packaging on them is very cute with its floral-ish/paisley pattern. The true color is a described as a "nude-peach" which is accurate. Depending on skin tone and the redness of and around eyes are big factors when deciding to buy.
Overall: The product really worked with my skin tone and made my eyes brighter with less notice-abilty of a white liner. It is one of the creamiest eyeliners I have ever used. However the staying power is just not there. For $18 I would prefer to my NYX white liner.

Repurchase?: Maybe.
