Welcome to ‘Til The Last Drop: a bi-monthly column in which I, CF Beauty Editor, Olivia Bennett, share my review of a favourite cult product that I (truly) use to the last drop. This week’s featured product is Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner.
I’m messaged by friends and family, at all hours of the day, with recommendation requests for everything from “the budget gel moisturiser that works with combination skin” to “the hard-hitting eye cream that will make Botox a last resort”, and queries on “whether X, Y, and Z from the current trending brand are REALLY worth the hype”.
Such incessant inquiries sparked this column, where I’ll cover best-selling names alongside under-the-radar brands to note. You’ll hear about blow-the-budget products that live up to their hefty price tag and the purse-friendly steals which I unashamedly turn to time and again.
No need to text me, I’ll be sharing all my intel with you right here every other week. Tune in.
Whether your style icon is Audrey Hepburn or Alexa Chung, a clean slick of eyeliner is a timeless look, channeling insouciant glamour whether paired with denim and leather by day, or a silk slip dress by evening. To master the feline flick, what you really need is a liquid formula – preferably in pen form for ultimate ease. Stila's Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner: a highly pigmented jet black ink, applied via the sharpest, most precise paintbrush nib is my go-to. It glides on seamlessly, leaving a flawless slick of colour that dries in an instant. It's wonderfully buildable whether you want an ultra-thin defined line or a more dramatic look. Even better, it lasts all day without smudging, so there's no need to reapply. Top tip: start with the flick and work inwards for a symmetrical application.
