I think I may have been a magpie in a previous life. Show me anything shiny or eye-catching and consider my interest well and truly piqued. I tend to wear glitter all year, but you know… ’tis the season, so let’s all embrace the shimmer. Here’s my glowy make up edit… prepare to be dazzled!
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Fiore
This is a new favourite product of mine: a truly matte lip product that doesn’t dry out my lips.
You paint this on like a lip gloss with the sponge doe-foot applicator. The colour is ridiculously pigmented and opaque in one coat. The applicator is a little tricky to use, just because it is so pigmented so any mistakes or wobbly lines show up and you do need to be precise with this because it dries quickly and really does stay put!
When you first apply it is glossy and shiny and then before your eyes it dries to the most amazing matte finish. A PROPER matte finish. And it has great longevity – I wouldn’t say it’d last all day, but the first time I used this I applied it on the way to a work party at about 4pm. The drinks were free so this product was really put to the drinks test and it Did. Not. Budge. To the point where on the tube home at midnight I was scrubbing it off my lips with a wet wipe!
The Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks contain Vitamin E and avocado oil so they don’t dry out your lips which can be a downside of matte lip products. As with anything matte, I would recommend exfoliating your lips before application as this will show up flakes like a mofo.
I am definitely going to get some of the other colours from this range as this is LOVE.
