Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Review & Swatches
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick is one of those products that follows a seasonal trend. We’re starting to see a variety of long wearing liquid lipsticks for Fall 2012 as it goes every year. Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge has my heart at the moment but I must say Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick was quite incredible as well.
Take a look!
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick ($22) is available in ten bold shades of color and is newly launched with the Stila Fall 2012 Collection.
I feel Stila’s done long wearing lip creams before but for the life of me I can’t recall the name of the product that released prior to this one. Although Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick definitely rivals it from my memory of that original formula.
Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick is one of several new long wearing products that’s trending with Stila at the moment, the new Stay All Day Liquid Foundation and Concealer is another.
This is a highly pigmented liquid lipstick so what you see in the tube is definitely what you get on lips. The opaque coverage it provides is outstanding to say the least and full color coverage comes across bold, vibrant, and dramatic on lips. I think some of the shades might be a little too crazy for some folks (I tried Tesoro in my photo below and man, it’s bold baby!).
The formula is a richer cream base with a velvety feel on lips. Although velvety I wouldn’t call it complete matte in finish, perhaps semi-matte since it does has some glossy to it. It glides on lips easily and a single stroke will provide instant coverage without having to go over your lip color several times. I find the texture very soft, easy to work with, and comfortably lightweight on. The color is so bold and rich that it does have the potential to migrate if you have finer lines around your lips. Lucky enough I didn’t have problems with migration and the color decided to stay where I put it.
You will need an eye & lip remover to get it fully off as it leaves behind a stain once it wears away. This is something I dislike since I’m such a fail at touching up my lipstick and gloss as the day progresses. Leave it alone, allow it to wear away, and the stained look is less than flattering in my opinion so touch ups are a requirement for the freshest look. I had no issues with it sucking moisture from my lips and it remained pleasantly dewy on my lips throughout the wear. I can’t necessarily eat or drink with it in place though as that causes it to wear away quicker. You can see a solid four hours with it before some fading occurs and five would be the point you’ll want to wipe off any excess and reapply.
Overall, Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick is one of the best liquid lipsticks I’ve tried in a while. I do wish they had more subtle color variety available as these shades are a POPPING! I must say it has very little wrong with it. The formula performs well, has amazing pigmentation, and is completely comfortable to wear.
With clear gloss on top
This one deserves a Muse Approval.
I’d highly suggest trying it out particularly if you love dramatic lips.
