So, if you read my ‘What I got for Christmas 2017’ Post (if you haven’t, go read it here), you will know that I got the Stila ‘Play it Cool All day Liquid Lipsticks’ set this year (Currently reduced at FeelUnique, £17). Can you believe that these are my FIRST Stila products?! I can’t believe that it has taken me this long, but at least I can say that they are worth the wait.
First of all, the packaging is bloody gorgeous! Each of the three lipsticks is in the standard liquid lipstick container, with a beautiful gold lid and text. They of course have the brand name clearly on the bottle, along with the shade of each lipstick on the base (very useful for blogging). Despite the lipsticks being 0.05 fl. oz they still feel heavy and expensive.
According to Stila, the all day liquid lipsticks are universally flattering and, with a mixture of pinks and berry’s in the set, I can definitely agree. The lipsticks are meant to be full coverage, and last for 6 hours before you would need a top up, whilst still keeping lips soft and hydrated. I thought these were big claims and so I put them to the test!
Baci – A beautiful cool toned, dusty pink shade that is perfect for all year round!
Bacca – A stunning raspberry shade that is great for the autumn/winter months or if you want that perfect bold lip!
Patina – A beautiful shade that is very similar to Baci but more warm toned, another nude that will work all year. Think your lips but better…
All of these lipsticks are extremely pigmented, so even though they are only small, they cover the lip with just one swipe! Bacca was slightly more patchy than the other two lipsticks but nothing that can’t be easily fixed.
They dry down completely matte and last for around 5 hours without making the lips feel dry and crusty (something I hate about some liquid lipsticks) and so with this formula, I will definitely be buying more colours. I I think the ‘Studded Eight’ set will be my next purchase! Working out at just under £6 a pop, they are great value and will look great in any makeup lovers collection!
