Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks come in a transparent tube; the colour you see on the inside of the tube is the exact colour the lipstick is when you’re applying it to your lips. It has a shiny black twist off lid and a flexible doe foot applicator. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks are available in ten bold matte and shimmer shades, containing .10g worth of product and retail for $29.
If you’re looking for a perfect blue based red to give the appearance of whiter teeth this summer than definitely pick up Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstickin Beso. Beso is a Spanish word for “kiss”, so naturally it would be the sexiest “true” red I’ve ever seen. It provides an opaque full coverage and is completely matte. It’s rich cream base formula glides onto the lips easily in one single stroke. It provides instant coverage with the first application, no need to apply a second coat. If you’re looking for a little more precision you can use a lip brush to apply and outline your lips with the lipstick before using the doe foot applicator to fill in the rest. The texture is very soft and lightweight on your lips, yet gives a bold, vibrant, dramatic colour to the lips.
Since Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick applies like a gloss and sets quickly to a matte finish, like any matte lipstick it can be a little drying, although I didn’t find it too bad? You can always apply a balm before application or a layer of lip gloss over top of the lipstick for extra hydration? After applying a balm underneath I didn’t have any issues with it not being moisturizing, it didn’t make my lips look dry or flaky and it remained somewhat dewy on my lips throughout the wear. The staying power of this lipstick is so strong, even after eating and drinking, that you’ll need a good eye/ lip remover to get it fully off. As it starts to fade, about 5 hours in, it starts to leave behind, in my opinion, a beautiful stain. After the 5 hours you’ll want to wipe off any excess and reapply.
Overall this is a great matte lipstick for summer, it’s not as drying as other brands thanks to the vitamin E and avocado oil that helps hydrate and soften my lips. It’s creamy, full-coverage formula and bold pigmentation stays in place for up to 5 hours leaving me with less trips to the ladies room. It does not bleed into the cracks of my lips, it really does stay in place once I apply it, which I love. I’m very interested in picking up Fiore, which is a hot pink, perfect for summer.
