STILA STAY ALL DAY WATERPROOF LINER
Claims–Waterproof :: glides smoothing, no skipping :: lasts all day :: dries quickly :: no smudging or running
Price–$22 at Ulta, Sephora, Nordstrom, stilacosmetics.com
Pros—Fine tip :: glides on easily :: cruelty free :: dries quickly :: pigmented :: long lasting :: doesn’t smudge or transfer onto lid :: shade range
Cons—Expensive :: can dry up quickly if not stored upright
Final Thoughts–I’m very picky with liquid liners. They have to be easy to use, not bleed, and not transfer. This checks all of those boxes and is perfect for summer when it’s so hot and humid. You don’t have to worry about this one running or budging. Expensive, but good. Ulta usually has this half during their 21 Days of Beauty and that’s when I’ve bought it.

Claims–Longwearing :: water resistant :: smudge resistant :: enhances appearance of lashes
Price–$11.49 at Ulta :: $10.95 at Walgreens :: $8.74 at Wal Mart :: $6.59 at Target ;; $11.49 at physicansformula.com
Pros–Affordable :: easily accessible :: fine tip :: cruelty free :: pigmented :: stays in place :: doesn’t transfer or smudge
Cons–Pricier drugstore option :: shade range
Final Thoughts–I LOVE this liquid liner and it the one I will continue to use and repurchase. It’s really easy to use and glides on like a dream. I love that there’s a brown option. Most drugstore liners only come in black and that’s just too harsh for my fair skin. It is pricier for a drugstore product, but depending on where you buy, you can get it for a decent price.
So, DUPE or DUPED?
