With Valentines Day slowly creeping up on us all I'm sure some will be on the look out for the perfect red lipstick to sport on the day of lurve.
As a current singleton my plans for said day more or less involve deciding what bar of Chocolate to pick up on the way home and what pair of pajamas will be the comfiest...don't you dare say i'm not sexy haha!
By now I'm sure most of my regular readers will have come to realise that I am more than a little obsessed with Stila's Stay All Day Lipsticks, I literally can not wait to hit the States later on in the year to stock up on Sephora's version of these little matte wonders!
There's not really much I can say about the packaging of Stila's All Day Liquid Lipstick's that I haven't already stated.
Basically each tube comes in the style of a typical bog standard liquid lip product - transparent tube, black lid and a doe foot applicator which I'm not always the biggest fan of but due to its flexible quality
I have to hold it in high esteem and say it works very well with the texture of the product.
If you want a little more precision as the formula is quite loose and liquid like you can do what I do
and use a lip brush to apply and outline the lips with the colour.
With the deeper colours such as the reds and pinks in this line you may want to line your lips before application to help prevent bleeding or feathering of colour but I recommend that tip for pretty much every deep lip shade regardless of brand or formula.
Beso which of translates to kiss in Spanish is a truly sexy true red.
It has an old school vibe which is only heighten by the velvet matte finish and is one of few red shades that should lend itself well to any skin tone.
Beso is a classic blue based red that allows teeth to appear slightly whiter and is completly matte in finish.
I find this shade to give the illusion of larger plumper lips without that annoying tingle feeling that true lip plumping products feature, if that is not a winning combination I'm not sure what is.
With a shade name like Beso I think it is only fair to wear this on Valentines Day to put it to the kiss test...oh la la!
Liquid lipstick's can be pretty hit and miss as sometimes they are more like a gloss in terms of colour pay off and wear time. However this is jam packed with pigments in some cases more so than a good few lipsticks I own and delivers full opaque coverage without having to add several layers of product,
one coat and you are good to go!
This product is certainly matte and as a result can be a little drying to help remedy that you can
apply a balm before application or a layer of gloss on top.
In terms of wear this is the product that keeps on giving it stays put even after eating/drinking
for at least 6 hours which is when I noticed it fading but as it fades evenly you have a lovely stain.
I've said it before and I'll say it again I can not get enough of the Stila All Day Liquid Lipsticks
and in an ideal world would probably buy one of each shade...maybe one day!
