It’s really hard nowadays picking the best liquid lipstick because there are just so many of them on the market.
A brand I haven’t reviewed yet? Stila Cosmetics. Their Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks are available in 31 shades in mattes, satins, and shimmers, and go on incredibly opaque with a weightless texture.
I received two shades, a mauve (Patina) and a orange-toned red (Beso), both in the matte formula, and was quite impressed with these off the bat. The applicator on these make it easy to apply the colour within the lines and it settles on the lips quickly, which is great considering how wet the product is to begin with.
The wear is quite comfortable on the lips since the formula is enriched with vitamin E and avocado oil, making the colour soft, hydrating, and non-drying. I even found that after a few hours and eating and drinking, the colour stayed on quite well, which is great for something like a red.
Even though I have only tried out two of the 31 shades, this formula is quite impressive. The two colours, Patina and Beso are very beautiful, which is saying something since I don’t typically wear red lipstick. This one is great since Beso is a flattering orange-toned red that is perfect for the summer and it won’t budge, meaning it won’t be all over your face after eating or get on your teeth (which is the reason I don’t like wearing reds).
So how do these rank against the many other liquid lipsticks out there? To be honest, these are pretty on par with many others I have tried. These retail for C$29 a pop, so pretty similar to other Sephora brands. There are a variety of different colours in the line, which is great since you’ll definitely find the perfect colour for you. I also like how these offer different formulas to try out, like shimmers and glitters.
Are they better than the Smashbox All Day Liquid Lip Colours I reviewed last week? Honestly, I didn’t find there was a big difference between the two. The Stila ones are a touch creamier and more comfortable, but they are very comparable.
Have you tried Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks? What were your thoughts?
