My Take on Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner – Tetra:


Stila Smudge Stick comes in a mechanical pencil format. When I turned the pencil to get the product out for the first time, it did not come out. I had to turn it multiple times to get the product out. Once the product is out, I cannot make it go in again 🙁 I have a couple of these pencils and all have the same issue.

Tetra is described as a deep purple with plum shimmer.  I think that is the perfect description of the shade. The shade shows up so vibrant on the hand swatch, but on my eyelid, it shows up with little less intensity.  Nevertheless, it does look very pretty, would be great for party and special occasions.


This has amazing buttery texture, glides on like dream on my upper and lower lash line. No tug or pull against the skin.

Staying Power:

All it needs is just a few seconds to set. If you need to smudge it , you need to do it immediately. Once set , it becomes 100% smudge proof and transfer proof. Even the shimmer does not transfer. I have splashed water on my face, it does not go away or fade.

Ease of Removal:

You need an oil-based makeup remover or waterproof makeup remover to remove these. A regular makeup remover will not remove this. When compared to the awesome staying power, I think its not a big deal to remove it.

Pros of Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner – Tetra:

  • Pretty jewel toned plum shade.
  • Truly waterproof, smudgeproof.
  • Has a creamy texture, goes on with little or no effort.
  • Amazing staying power.

Cons of Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner – Tetra:

  • The mechanical pencil doesn’t seem to work perfectly.  Once I get more product out, I cannot make it go back by turning the pencil in opposite direction 🙁
  • Need a little more effort to remove it, I can live with it.

Final Word:

I am quite liking this eyeliner except for its faulty mechanical pencil packaging and its definitely a pretty purple shade to own which you can wear without worrying about any smudge or transfer.
