One of my favourite makeup items would definitely be lipstick. When I saw this gorgeous Stila set in Mecca in November I didn’t even hesitate to buy it! Over the holiday season they sold this set of 6 mini liquid lipsticks, but you can buy all of these colours individually in a full size and many other colours too. Liquid lipsticks are everywhere now and from many different brands. Through trying many different brands I have found what I love and don’t love in a liquid lipstick. For me, the Stila stay all day liquid lipsticks have been a winner and I am going to tell you why.
First of all, a simple criteria for being successful, the colours are gorgeous. I have probably worn Patina the most, as it is such an easy colour to wear on a day-to-day basis, then probably the colour Aria. All of the colours are wonderfully pigmented. Including the more nude shade, Caramello, which I actually quite enjoy. Often nudes wash me out very easily, however this one has just the right amount of colour in it and looks rather nice. I am often complimented when wearing these lipsticks and people want to know what they are, which is a good sign!
Secondly, they apply beautifully, and the texture is so creamy and so smooth and the doe foot applicator is flat, kinda flexy and quite easy to use.
Thirdly, they dry matte but aren’t drying compared to many liquid lipsticks on the market. However, I still like to wear some lip balm with it, and would do this with any matte lipstick. But even when I don’t it’s not uncomfortable.
Fourthly, as suggested in the name they are long lasting. What I have found with many other liquid lipsticks is flaking and crumbling overtime and the Stila liquid lipsticks don’t do this at all, which I love. I also love that if I really need to I can reapply without that super cakey feeling on my lips.
