Stila Kajal Eye Liner ($18) These richly hued pencils are formulated to mimic the ultra-soft texture of the Indian eye darkener of the same name. The luscious formula glides on perfectly, without dragging across the fragile skin of the eye area. Delivers bold, clear, true color that easily blends and beautifies.
I love how soft and creamy the Kajal eyeliner is. I also love how pigmented the eyeliners are. However, I do not love how much it smudges and transfers. It is best to avoid this eyeliner because it will smudge and smear within a couple of hours even with a primer. If it smeared to create a sexy, smudgy, smoky look, I wouldn’t be complaining. Instead, it travels all over and around your eye creating a I-just-rubbed-my-eye-and-now-my-makeup-is-all-over-my-face look. Not attractive at all. It’s very difficult to apply a thin line so applying to the lower lash line is out of the question. Also, because the pencil is so soft, it’s difficult to sharpen. It gets really annoying when you have to sharpen after every use. Stila Kajal Eyeliner is definitely not worth $18. I wouldn’t get it even if it was free. It’s best to avoid it.
