We chose the shade ‘Aria’
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick promises “a full-coverage lip colour that delivers intense moisture with bold, long-lasting colour and stays in place for up to six hours.”
It’s a lipstick with a high price point but it justifies this by offering weightless texture and a “colour-rich formula that will not bleed or transfer”. So how would it fare through lunch, copious cups of tea and the odd packet of crisps?
First impressions good. Super simple to apply, dries quickly, very modern matte finish and the colour is great, it makes teeth look whiter because of the blue undertones.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick’s best feature is that it does not dry lips out
The colour has definitely started to fade inside the lips by the time I’ve finished lunch, but the outer rim is not particularly smudged and the lips don’t feel dried out at all.
After wetting my lips and rubbing them together, the lipstick redistributed itself making the fade inside the lips less noticeable. It had started to smudge in other areas slightly though.
All in this is a great lipstick. It was the least drying on the lips and the fact that you can redistribute the colour if it fades is a big bonus.
