There is nothing I love more than a bold lip to complete any makeup look. However, there is nothing I hate more then wearing a lipstick and having to worry about it getting all over my face when I eat a meal, or all over my teeth during a conversation. One of my most embarrassing moments as a Cosmetician has to be the time when I was raving about one of our latest skincare products to a customer. After they left, I turned to one of my coworkers only for them to tell me there was lipstick all over my teeth. It is no wonder the customer left in a hurry without making a purchase. I am sure my lipstick coated pearly whites really convinced them that I am an expert in my field.
For someone who my Mom would classify as high maintenance, I am all about low maintenance beauty products. When I discovered Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks (it is a mouth full, I know) my relationship with lipsticks went from a love hate relationship to one with a whole lot of love. I am all for any product I can swipe on in the morning that requires few, if any, touch ups. I now have six shades, one of which I own two tubes of, and I am obsessed with them. Plus, they are transfer-proof saving me from any future embarrassing run ins with customers and lipstick on my teeth.
Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks come in twenty shades, there is a shade for basically everyone! They are a creamy-matte, full-coverage lip colour which guarantees six hours of continuous wear that will not bleed or transfer. I can personally say, I have gotten more than six hours out of this product before. They are also infused with avocado oil and vitamin E, which helps to keep the lips soft and moisturized.
What do I love most about them? Well, to start with, they literally last all day! (I guess they don’t call them Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks for nothing.) I have been wearing Carmello for about six hours now. During this time, I have gone to lunch with a friend and made a trip to the mall. So I have ate, drank and talked A LOT without having to touch it up at all. In addition to the product still looking great on my lips, it also feels great. The product still feels extremely comfortable and not drying. Sometimes, with liquid lipsticks, they can crack and the colour of your natural lip will start to show through. Or they will be so drying it looks like your lips are suffocating. This product however, is weightless, non-drying and the colour lasts. When applying it is so airy in texture you can barely feel it. It sits comfortably throughout the day without cracking, feeling heavy, tacky or sticky.
The six shades I have, shown above, are Carmello (a neutral nude), Chianti (a deep plum), Baci (a nude pink), Bacca (a raspberry), Ricco (a deep red) and Patina (a dusty rose). They do dry down to a matte finish, but when I was photographing them they were still a bit wet leaving a shine.
Are you a liquid lipstick lover? Have you tried Stila’s? What is your favourite shade?
I hope your lipstick stays all day!
