Stila PEACOCK Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner VS. Urban Decay COVET 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Swatches and Review

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Peacock was included with this months Birchbox as a full sized item.  Full sized items only very randomly appear in Birchbox, but when they are there it's always a good one.

What the Sephora website has to say about Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner:
What it is:
A color-rich, vibrant, easy-to-use liner with staying power.

What it does:
Obsessed with Smudge Pots? You'll go crazy for Smudge Sticks! This highly pigmented, waterproof eye liner glides on to deliver intense, vibrant color with staying power. Soft, smooth, and easy on the eyes, Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner creates a high metallic, sultry, inky intensity that lasts.
Size: 0.01 oz






Peacock (vibrant teal sheen) is not only a gorgeous shade, but actually DOES stay on!  This liner is incredibly soft and easy to use.  It doesn't last particularly well on the waterline, but it's perfect for those occasions when you just don't have a chance to make sure your liner isn't migrating down your face.  Based off of the description from Sephora, if you like the Smudge Pots this is basically the same thing, but in stick form.

While testing Peacock, it got me thinking about my fave Urban Decay liner - Covet.  I use Covet for a lot of looks but have never swatched it to refer back to.  Peacock reminded me of Covet, but once they were swatched side by side I saw they were completely different.  Peacock is more of a blue, and Covet is more teal.  What they DO have in common is that they're both beautiful shades!

Urban Decay Covet 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil is the stuff dreams are made of.  Ever since I learned of my sensitivity to MAC Pearlglide liners I was in search of a dupe for Undercurrent.  The closest I've found was Urban Decay Covet.  I use it quite a bit for a color liner if you read through my FOTD or EOTD posts.  If you adore shades such as this, it's imperative that you check it out!

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof  Eye Liner retails for $20.00 and Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil retails for $18.00.  Both are available at Sephora and Ulta.  You will get much more product from the Urban Decay (0.04) vs the Stila (0.01), but they are both excellent products.

I was so excited when I got this in the Birchbox this month, but I'm a little intimidated by it too. You'll have to help me with it the next time I'm home.

This is an adorable shade! Thank you for sharing! I avoid blue because I'm quite warm-toned, but this doesn't look SO cool so I might be able to work with it!

I love both of these shades! I am a sucker for teal liners and both of these would be at the top of my list if I had to choose favorites! :)

These shades are both gorgeous. All these blue and green shades are my favorites along with purple.
