I thought that Black Line was very similar to Stila Moray Smudgestick & Clinique Egyptian Creamshaper. So, today I decided to swatch them side by side and see.
If we consider Black Line the "control", then:
- Egyptian's base is more brown than Black Line's.
- Moray is almost spot on, but it needs more black. You could probably get the same effect by using Moray over a black liner.
- They all felt pretty much the same when I applied them, but when I tried to smudge them, Moray & Black Line didn't budge, while Egyptian smeared.
- Stila is $20 for .01oz, Clinique is $14.50 for .04oz, MAC is $14.50 for .04oz.
