Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Stick in Damsel

When I first saw this added to the regular lineup, I looked at the name and wondered if this was a slightly-tweaked version of Ladyfish, the smudge stick included with the Luxe Palette. But no...this is a deep brown, no purple tones at all. It isn't blackened, but it's got good color depth and payoff. It's an ideal color to use if you want a definitely brown liner, rather than something that isn't quite black (like most black-brown liners.)

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the eyeliner tube or pencil barrel; top right, the eyeliner applied over bare skin, to better show the shade and properties; and below, the eyeliner applied on the eyelid at the lash line.

The new line introduced several shades of brown, some with warm or cool tones. This one is fairly neutral, perhaps a little on the warm side of pure neutral if you stand on your head and squint.
