Stila Eyes & Shine Smudge Pot Trio Review

It's not too late! There's still time left to head to Sephora and snatch up a few good gifts for friends and family!

Considering that New Year's is next week you might want to indulge in Stila Eyes & Shine Smudge Pot Trio which contains three smudge pots for $32 USD. At around $10 USD per a pot the Muse is liking this good deal for an elegantly lined eye look for New Year's Eve (and day) parties and gatherings!

Stila's Eyes & Shine Smudge Pot Trio contains three gel eyeliners in black, bronze, and gray. Although most makeup addicts claim MAC Fluidline is the go to product for liner the Muse begs to differ. She finds that fluidline applies streaky and she hates having to go back and re-line as it creates more of a mess! The formula of Stila Smudge Pots applies precisely, easily, and mess free the first time, every time, no re-lining required. As per their name they smudge beautifully well to create that perfect smoked out look plus they make a wonderful base for shadows if you choose.

I thought including three smudge pots in one kit was quite a nice value and I think it makes a rather cute little stocking stuffer or come on who can resist getting it for yourself right? You know you wants it!

Snag your set at Sephora or visit

What are your fav potted liners?

I really love the Aromaleigh Indelible Gel eye liners, and I just recently tried Coastal Scents gel eyeliners. I think they're both great. I do like the MAC Fluidline too, but I only have it in Waveline. I need to check out Stila's :)

That bronze looks gorgeous. Does the grey have any shimmer or is it matte?

Yes I do agree, fluidline have to be reapplied if u wana be eyelined for 18 hours.

Ahh, I love this set! I recently got it and fell in love. I prefer this to fluidlines too because I have the same problem as you. Sooo worth it and more.

Nice holiday layout, Musey! :)

How do you find the Smudge Pots compare to Bobbi Brown's gel liners? When I tested it, the Smudge Pots felt drier compared to BB's gel liners, but I've never been sure if it was just the testers.

Haven't tried 'em yet but they are on my hit list!

Stila and smashbox are my favs! No shimmer completely matte on the grey and surprisingly I do like it that way :)

Thanks for the comment!
Happy Holidays!

Thanks hun!

I like BB best...Stila and Smasbox are my second favs! They prob felt drier b/c they were left open they def have a very nice, soft gel formula :)

I'm betting was the testers!

hi Anonymous!

Thanks..glad you're liking the new theme. sadly I won't be going back to the normal post style. I think the read more option keeps the posts tidy and organized plus gives me room for posting alot more entries on the first page of my blog. I'm sorry you aren't loving this...many blogs do this format of posting and I decided to embrace it for Musings.

I hope you'll get used to it!

Happy Holidays!

Hope that helps hun!

Happiest Holidays!

hey, i need your help... i can't decide between this stila smudge pot trio and urban decay's velvet rope eyeliner set... i can only buy one and was wondering which you'd recommend! thanks!

hi rara

it's two different products so it's really which you prefer using.

a potted liner or a eye pencil liner....

If you're better with potted liners and prefer them than get this...if you like pencils better get the UD set.

Hope this helps
