I have talked in the past about how grateful I am for my Birchbox subscription. It has taught me so much about what beauty products do or do not work for me and my routine (and all with in comfort level). My favorite benefit of the monthly subscription is that I get to try bold and bright colors that I could never afford to try otherwise. I have transformed from “clear gloss girl” – to confidently styling bold purples, pinks, and reds! I’ve- in fact – become so interested in new colors that this is my third lip product review!
With a wedding on the books and less than one year away – a “Stay All Day” product is the most important feature to me right now. I want to know that photos at 2pm and photos at 10pm will have the same impact when it comes to my make up on my special day.
This months birchbox brought me THE one! The one I might even use on my big day! Its staying power is so strong- I think it will make it through 100 kisses, a few cocktails, and hours of smiles!
Stila Cosmetics is a brand worth knowing if you do not already. And if you’re looking for a gem of a lipstick I suggest : Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick. My shade – “Bella.” There are several other stunning colors:
Venezia, Bella, Amalfi, Rosa, and Como
I thought a gender reveal party was the best way to see what this stuff really had to offer.
I applied my first coat at 12:00 pm and snapped a photo 30 minutes later:
*NOTE; painting inside the lines is Crucial with this serious stuff! Its going to STAY where ever you put it.
4 hours later, 2 beverages, a bottled water, and lots of talking and snacking later:
Although you can certainly see the wear in this comparison – you wouldn’t know a difference with out the side by side!
This stuff has a matte look. I would not advise adding a gloss over top, because I think it would carry your stain to outside your lip line or on to your teeth. After about five hours it did begin to dry slightly on the inner circle of my lips, but still no changes, cracking, or bleeding on my lip line!
The only reason it finally came off is after several beers, crabs, and old bay I had to clean my forearms, face, and everywhere else!
I believe the stila stay all day liquid lipstick would have kept its promise otherwise!
I highly recommend this gorgeous shade and true stay all day product.
Here’s to best friends and pink lips!
As you can see- no transfer on to my main man either!
Ps. Our attire was appropriate- Its a boy! Congrats to the Drake family on their new addition!
