It seems the latest and greatest in makeup at the moment is liquid lipsticks. We’re all after that product to give us luscious lips with amazing colour payoff. I have had my fair share of liquid lipsticks and after trying various products I keep coming back to Stila. Stila is one of my favourite makeup brands and their liquid lipsticks definitely live up to the hype.
As many makeup lovers would know the one problem with liquid lipsticks is having your lips feel like the Sahara desert. The Stila liquid lipsticks, while are still drying are more on the moisturising side when compared to other liquid lipsticks. What I typically do and recommend before applying any liquid lipstick, no matter how moisturising the product, is to prep your lips with a lip balm 10-15 minutes prior to application. I’ll usually use some Lucas pawpaw and let it soak in. This eliminates majority of the drying.
My favourite shades from the collection are Patina, which is a beautiful lavender nude and Fiery, which is a stunning blue-red. The great thing about the lipsticks is the easy application. The lipsticks come with a small doe foot applicator, which makes for easy application. The colour pay-off is one of the best I have tried. It stays on for a long time (with the exception of eating greasy foods). You don’t need to layer, but if you chose to layer it won’t flake. I definitely want to add more to my Stila collection and highly recommend giving the lipsticks a try.
