I received a sample of this in my Birchbox August 2013 box, and have yet reviewed it. I thought it was funny how now a year later I'm finally reviewing this product! Click down below to see what I thought of this liquid lipstick after many uses!
What it promises:
A creamy-matte, full-coverage lip color that delivers bold, long-lasting color and stays in place for up to 6 hours of continuous wear.
The texture is weightless on lips and delivers superb comfort and its color-rich formula will not bleed or transfer.
Enriched with Vitamin E and avocado oil, Stay All Day® Liquid Lipstick softens the lips so they look and feel beautiful!
What I found:
When I first spotted this in my birchbox I was beyond excited finally getting a beauty item in the box! I have used quite a few Stila products over the years but never a lip product so I was super curious.
I tested that out right away. The color is pure perfection! I love the shade of red.
It glides onto the lips easily, a bit too easily to be honest. You have to really take your time while applying because it seems a little on the slippery side so it's easy to get it outside your lips.
You really need to watch for getting it outside of the lines because it stains, and stains fast! Another issue I found is that it never really sets. It transfers everywhere. It also stains where it transfers I gave my fiancé a kiss on the hand while wearing this and he had to wash it off with soap and water because it left a red stain when he went to rub it off.
I wore this on another occasion recently since it was so tiny to pack and I didn't want to risk losing my favorite MAC lipstick. It didn't set after application so it transfer everywhere again. I had to start rubbing my beer bottle top after drinking from it the next day the bottom of my hand was red still! My lips stayed perfectly red throughout the even though!
I highly recommend using a lip liner with this product!!
- The perfect shade of Red
- Stains the lips (and everything else it touches)
- Transfers everywhere!
VERDICT: For an item that promises no transferring this got everywhere. I wouldn't repurchase this not matter how perfect this shade of red is. It's much too messy especially for the price of $22. This is must definitely a Skip for me!
