This series will be over sooner than I thought. Are you enjoying it so far? Should I give it up? Do let me know in a comment below if I should continue to go through the beauty advent calendars and review the products that I found. Today’s product is Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick and it was day 6 from Marks & Spencer’s beauty advent calendar.
I know that this post is yet another lipstick post, honestly I did not realise it when I initially started picking the items out. I wanted to include around 3 items from each calendar (I could not do more because of the limited number of days and the huge number of calendars that I just had to try this year). Hopefully you won’t mind!
Okay, so Stila is a pretty amazing brand and I have been lucky enough to try out some of their products before. Unfortunately, most of the products came from beauty boxes or other calendars and the colours were never quite right for me. There is nothing wrong with them being from beauty boxes, but you know what I mean. It is a bit frustrating when the colours are just some that you would not think about wearing, however I did try them out as I was not very familiar with the brand at that time and I loved them. I loved their quality, I mean.
For the first time, I finally ended up with a Stila product that I can wear. Jackpot!! I was actually excited to try it out and see whether it was as great as it looked and smelled. The product smells amazing, but of course that should not matter as long as you do not have something against fragranced cosmetics or it does not smell horrible. The application is smooth and the applicator itself is pretty good, but that is what one expects when they splurge on Stila. However, I honestly preferred applying the liquid lipstick using a lip brush as I found it offered me slightly more control around the corners of my mouth.
The colour I received is called Pearl and it is pretty amazing, it reminds me actually of some of Kylie’s Cosmetics first shades from her lip kits collection that were oh so popular around two years ago. The lipstick is longwear and it dries out matte and looking pretty beautiful. I wore it for an entire day and it managed to look okay by the end of the night without any touchups, however I did not get to eat or drink all that much so maybe that is why. However, a second application would not be that bad or bad enough that would make me wanna say that you should avoid the product. I honestly believe that this lip product from Stila is pretty great and it is a bit drying, but it is not uncomfortably so.
Overall, I would recommend giving this product from Stila a try and see what you think of it. It is pretty great and I look forward to continue wearing it.
