I’m so excited about this post because I am literally in LOVE with these liquid lipsticks!
During the sales, I got myself the Stila Star Studded Eight Liquid Lipstick set which consists of six matte colours and two new metallic colours (that have only just launched this month!). I haven’t used anything from Stila for a couple of years now, but from what I remember, I did love the few things that I did use (in particular their One Step Correct Primer) because they have really great formulas. I realised I have been missing out and decided I am NOT going to abandon Stila ever again!
Back to the lipsticks. The formula is beautiful! It’s not dry or sticky as some liquid lipsticks can be, it is quite a creamy consistency which applies easily and dries to a comfortable finish. In terms of how long it lasts, the product certainly lives up to its name. I managed to get through a whole day (about 9:30am to 4pm) without having to retouch – I even managed to eat my lunch without any fading! So yes, it really does ‘stay all day’. I particularly like the fact that it doesn’t bleed either or look faded/flaky/patchy after wearing for a while.
I’ve included swatches and names of all the colours above and it’s quite obvious that the lipstick has a gorgeous pigment! You get opaque colour with just one layer and because the formula is so lightweight, you can easily mix, match and layer to achieve your desired look. I need to also include the fact that I absolutely adore the shade Patina!
When it comes to removal of the product, it does come off pretty swiftly using normal make up remover/wipes and doesn’t leave a stain on the lips (I can’t stand staining!).
The liquid lipstick’s that I got in the set are all mini sizes (1.5ml) and the set can still be purchased on the Stila website. All the shades are also available in full size (3ml).
I do honestly think these liquid lipsticks are of excellent quality and are definite must have for any make-up bag.
Have you tried these before? If so, what are your favourite shades?
Tip: Apply a lip balm liberally all over lips and then wipe off excess before applying liquid lipsticks -this way your lips stay moisturized throughout the day.
