Stila Sparkle Liquid Eye Liner in Electric: Review and Swatches

As I'm sure some of you have noticed, this year most of the world skipped out on winter, which means that summer is fast approaching! I thought it'd be a good idea to feature a couple of waterproof makeup items (like the Cargo Swimmables) that I always have on me during the summer!

I'm a big fan of liquid liner, so the Stila Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eye Liners are definitely a must for me!
Stila Sparkle Liquid Liner in "Electric"

I originally bought this eyeliner because of the color (I love wearing bright eyeliner!), but ended up being really impressed with the formula itself! Electric is a vibrant, electric blue-green with blue glitter throughout. What I love about these is that they really do not budge whatsoever. The line you see in the swatch below is one swipe of the brush, which is pretty amazing.

The only downside to this eyeliner is that it stains. I usually have to scrub at it with makeup remover two or three times to completely get the stain off my eyelids. I have another one of these eyeliners in a different shade and it does not stain the same way, so I'm assuming only "Electric" or other similarly potent shades have this problem.

Lastly, these eyeliners come with a felt tip applicator, which I prefer to the brush applicators, especially when you want a quick, precise line.

What do you think?
