    Listen, there are a lot of good liquid eyeliners out there, and I've tried my share, but please listen when I say that Stila's Stay All Day liner is the greatest, most reliable pen on the market.

    Kat Von D eyeliner doesn't stay as well and Nyx is harder to control. Do not fight me on this!!!

    Lemme explain why I stan this liner so hard.

    (Here is proof that even someone as makeup illiterate as I am can still competently draw wings. Thanks, Stila!)

    Stila's Stay All Day eyeliner lasts forever without smudging, glides on effortlessly, is super pigmented, and has a sharp tip so you can draw wings with ease. Oh, and it comes in 12 COLORS!

    You're gonna feel like a darn artist wielding this thing.

    Also, I find that with inkier liners like Nyx, the liner will stamp onto the crease of my lid if I'm not careful. Stila dries pretty quickly, so I don't have a problem with smudging.

    And if you want to get suuuper precise, they now have a micro tip option. Tiny polka-dots under your expertly drawn wings? Anything is possible now!

    Although honestly, the tip on the original is pretty damn sharp, so I don't know if you even need it!

    Still not sold? It has over 3,500 positive reviews on Amazon. Just read what people are saying about this miracle makeup:,

    "I've been using this eyeliner for a really long time now. I have purchased about four consecutively and they all last a really long time before they dry out. I will say that it is very, very dark and very black (which I love). It is also extremely easy to apply your eyeliner thin or thick. I highly recommend this to anyone who is new to liner." —LC

    "This is the best eyeliner I have yet to try. I went to a water park and I spent the whole day there. I got to the hotel and looked at my eyeliner and it was still intact. It didn't even fade a lil bit. Haven't used any other eyeliner since then. It also has the perfect size brush. Love it" —M. V

    "Stila is the absolute best liquid eyeliner I have ever tried. It doesn't fade or crack, and stays on through sleeping or tears. It's very, very smudge-proof and it does not flake AT ALL. It dries quickly and even though it is waterproof (as long as you don't touch it excessively), it stays. It's also easy to clean off at the end of the day. No hard scrubbing to get it off, makeup wipes will take it off easily. It's amazing for creating perfect wings, or drawing artfully for Halloween." —Chick

    STILL not convinced??? How about the fact that it won "Best Liquid Eyeliner" on BuzzFeed's new review website?
