The Swatch Files: Stila Kajal Eyeliner in Amethyst

On my waterline, it comes out lilacy but when I put it on my lids, it comes out as a darker purple.
Sorry for the crappy photo of the pencil, I had a better photo which Picasa has conveniently lost.

To get a darker colour on you waterline, I suggest warming the pencil up by rubbing it on the back of your hand.

Re. how long the pencil lasts, I've noticed the following:
  • It lasts all day on the waterline, it is creamy when you apply it but it sticks around for ages, doesn't smudge or anything.
  • If you have brown eyes, it's a really good work-safe colour to use as from a distance, it looks brown but it accentuates your eyes
  • I have been using this on a weekly basis for more than a year and I've only had to sharpen it very recently


  1. i absolutely LOVE the stila kajal liners :D That color is fab, it does accent your pretty brown peepers. I want to get a couple more colors, I only have the black right now.


  2. this looks so different! I would love to wear it on the waterline. I've been wanting to try its topaz since ages!

  3. I've never tried anything from stila. Will keep my eyes open for their liners after reading your post!
