Good old liquid lipsticks. Gone are the days where a bold red lip caused anxiety over whether or not it was still on your lips, or if it was now on your face! The power of liquid lipsticks, has allowed us to wear a bold lip all day, worry free, and even lets us eat a burger in the middle of the day without having to reapply. The Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks really do stay. all. day. I’m talking a 6 hour shift at work, where I am constantly talking, and when I get home, it looks as though I just applied my bold lip.
The range has a variety of colours to suit all sorts of skin tones. From bold reds, to more nude colours and everything in between. The applicator allows for pretty easy application, however, I would recommend using a lip liner first. Prior to application, make sure you have exfoliated your lips to remove any dead skin, and then apply a thin layer of moisturising lip balm. My favourite, is of course, the Nuxe Reve De Miel. Then apply a thin layer of liquid lipstick. If you find you have really dry lips, definitely apply a lipgloss on top after it has dried down matte. This will help prolong the wear time, before any dryness sets in. To remove you liquid lipstick, you can’t go past good old Bioderma. It does the trick in a matter of seconds.
These liquid lipsticks are not as drying, as soooo many other brands. They don’t flake after prolonged wear, and they layer really well, if you do need to reapply throughout the day. They honestly, feel like you aren’t wearing lipstick at all.
I have the shades Baci (first) and Bacca (second). Baci dries down to a purple toned mauve, that’s more on the nude side of bold lips. On the other hand, I have Bacca. Barca is a vibrant blue toned pinky/red lip colour. I do find this colour is slightly patchy on the first layer of application. So, I would recommend applying a second thin layer, to get an overall opaque look.
I love these liquid lipsticks, and could not recommend them enough. I can’t wait to buy more colours and put them to the test. Do you have any liquid lipsticks you love?
