Stila Sparkle Waterproof Eyeliner in Electric

Glitter liners.  I love them.  Nowadays, though, I just don't wear the all out glitter-suspended-in-clear-or-coloured-base type of liner all that regularly - it takes a party or glamourous night out for me to break them out of my liner stash.  A bit of subtle sparkle, though... I'll definitely go for that.  These new Stila Sparkle waterproof eyeliners are just that - not absurdly, evening-wear glittery, but sparkly and shiny and eyecatching nonetheless.

They apply smoothly and with rich, opaque colour - no second coat required.  The eyeliner brush is more firm foam than it is bendy brush, making it super easy to draw a quick line of colour atop the lashes.  Which is exactly what I did.

As you can see, the finish is shiny and almost wet looking.  It's also worth mentioning that these photos were taken after 15 hours of wear - and the line is still strikingly smooth and well defined.  No flaking, no smearing, no budging at all.  Very impressive.

In the context of my whole face, the liner gives a great shot of colour, and the glossy finish lifts and highlights the eye.  My only complaint would be that this particular shade actually stained my lashline a little - after removal (with oil, of course), I was left with a slightly green tinged lashline.  Nothing that couldn't be covered with shadow or primer the following day, but still, a stain's a stain.  For the perfect wear and beautiful finish, though, I'll put up with a little staining.

Find it at Boots, both in-store (from July) and online, where it will cost you £14.  What do you think?  Gorgeous or gaudy?  Could you bear a stain for impressive lasting power?  Let us know in the comments!
