I am absolutely in love with Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick.
There are ten shades and I have the one called Tesoro which is a hot orange red. This lipstick is as bright, as you can see it on the photo, it’s a true full-on fiery red.
It goes opaque with one layer and draws a lot of attention, so make sure that you apply it perfectly. You may want using a lip liner and a brush with it, too. I would also recommend some light textured concealer around the contour of the lips (I love Touche Eclat) to make it look even sharper.
I like the sponge applicator this lipstick comes with actually, and for using the product on myself, I find it enough.
The textureof the All Day Liquid Lipstick is fantastic : soft, creamy, very long-lasting and non-drying. My friend, who tried this lipstick as well, actually told me that she found it moisturizing. I am not sure about that, but it definitely does not leave your lips chapped and dried out as some stains do.
It gives a beautiful matte finish which sets and lasts really well. It does survive a (non greasy) dinner and tea. Of course, you will have to fix it afterwards, but Tesoro does not disappear completely.
If you are looking for a long-lasting orange red lipstick – this is a perfect variant. Well done, Stila!
These are my friend’s lips (and freckles), not mine 🙂
The price is not bad at all as well – £15/$22. I think I need Bellissima.
