Disappointed - Purple Tang/Moray
on January 22, 2012
I was extremely excited to see that Stila had an eyeliner in a gorgeous purple color - which is my color of choice when it comes to eyeliner. Believe me, I've tried many - from L'Oreal to Maybelline to Clinique to a cheap Walgreen's brand. With one exception (L'Oreal), the colors are not true to the pencil.
This is where I need to give Stila props: the color is excellent! The purple is exactly the shade of purple I was hoping for, with an added bonus: a tad bit of glittery goodness. Not too much - just enough to stand out.
I am extremely pleased with the color, but not the stick, which is defective. After three days of use, the pencil was worn down so I twisted to the stick in an attempt to get more eyeliner out of it. Nothing came out. I twisted some more. And yet some more. And still some more - no luck. The pencil would not drill down from the stick.
I had this same problem with the Moray color as well. This is completely unacceptable, especially since the cost of this cosmetic item is so high. I will not order this product again because of the defective pencils. However, if you'd like to get three days worth of eye popping color, order it - you won't be disappointed with the color of the product!
