    Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

    Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

     

    Liquid lipsticks have created a big wave in the beauty world. Every brand from MAC to Revlon have dipped their toes in the water. I’ve tried my fair share, however Stila’s variant is the most expensive so far at £16 for a tube. The brand recently added five new shades to the already pretty strong collection of Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks and I tried two.

    Bacca is a berry toned shade that somehow manages to blend the goodness of a red and a pink together. I was really excited to try this shade. On my skin tone,  one coat dries into a magenta colour which I’m so excited  to wear in this summer.

    Ricco, a brownish toned red took my heart and ran away with it. During the colder months, it was my go-to shade although it did leave me looking washed out sometimes.

    The colour pay off and pigmentation of these liquid lipsticks are absolutely incredible. One coat is all that is need, however the option of building it up stands. Often, products are given names they can’t even live up to. However, the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick was definitely aptly named. I can apply it in the morning and by lunch time, its still in place. The formula is exactly what I look for in liquid lipsticks. It dries really matte but is not ridiculously drying though its still best to moisturise lips before use. The packaging means it can be applied like a lipgloss but the get a lipstick finish with all that glossy-ness.

    The doe foot applicator makes applying with precision a hard task. With ‘Ricco’ being such a deep toned  shade, I find the need for a lipliner. I often go in with MAC’s ‘Chestnut’ lipliner before and after application and still I get a somewhat messy finish.
