Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Review

Hello! Happy Friday! Last week I did a tutorial on how I apply matte lip products. The product I used for that look was Stila's Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in the color Patina. Today, I wanted to share my thoughts on this lip product.
Stila Say All Day Liquid Lipstick Patina
Application- This product can be hard to apply. The first time I tried it, it look horrible. It looked cakey and settled into all of the lines on my lips. Following the steps in my How to Apply Matte Lip Products post, I was able to get a better application though, but it takes a lot of steps. The applicator with the lipstick isn't great. It holds onto a lot of product, making it messy and hard to apply evenly. I ended up using a lip brush, which works better.
Consistency- The product starts as a wet, glossy consistency, but dries matte. Sometimes, I will end up putting a gloss over it because it tends to be over-drying. Although, applying a lip balm underneath it does help.When I do wear it matte, it lasts a while. I wouldn't say all day, but I can eat and drink and it will stay put. When I wear a gloss on top, it wears off a little quicker.
Color- I love this color. It is a mauve/ dusty rose color that is absolutely beautiful. The color is nice and opaque and looks good with one layer, but it is buildable for a darker look.
Final Verdict- I contemplated returning this product, but I decided to keep it. I would give this lipstick a 3/5. It is a beautiful color, but it is too drying. For the price, I expected it to have a better application. If you are looking for a matte lipstick, I think there are other option that are better.

  2. Such a pretty shade but I don't think that I would get along with the drying formula!

  3. This is a very natural looking color for a no makeup look. I'm not all that into matte formulas because of how drying they are.
