Review, Swatchfest, & excellent find: Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Peacock

Although not a new product to the market, I had never tried Stila's Smudge Stick until I received it in a Birchbox.

Peacock is a lovely aqua/teal color that, right out of the box, looked like a dupe for my favorite teal eyeliner EVER. But, more on that later. The consistency is creamy, the pigmentation is outrageous, and the staying power is stellar - even on the water line. The applicator is automatic and the tip is small and precise, perfect for getting everything from the water line to the inner corner.

Now for the icing on the cake: it's an exact dupe for my favorite teal eyeliner by CARGO that happens to be limited edition.

From the swatches above, you can see that they are a perfect match! You can also see from the Stila swatches that the pencil is fully capable of providing a thin line that packs just as much pigments as a layered scribble. Overall, February was a good month for new products, but was also an excellent month for replicating old favorites.
