A few months ago I tried out my first Stila Stay All Day lipstick and I completely fell in love with both the formula and the staying power. While most liquid mattes have fairly good staying power, this one is definitely a step ahead of the rest as it really does stay all day.
But aside from unbelievable staying power, the pigment and formula are both equally as good. The last shade I tried, Rubino, wouldn’t be my favourite choice in a lippy shade, but the pigment was incredible, as it is again with today’s shade, Patina.
This shade as you can see, is a rich rose with a slightly cool undertone. It has amazing colour pay off with a full coverage, opaque finish that I just love. The minute you apply this you get a brilliant pop of colour, and therefore you don’t need to apply very much at all which is always a good sign in a lipstick too.
The formula is quite wet initially, but it dries in quickly, and it also has a delicious vanilla caramel scent. In terms of comparison, its not dissimilar to theBalm’s Meet Matt(e) Hughes range which I also love and comes a close second place.
I bought this as part of a mini lipstick Christmas set that Stila have released for Christmas and I can’t wait to try the other two shades. I love nothing more than when I try a lipstick range for a second time and end up loving it even more than the first.
This is definitely a must try for any liquid lipstick fans out there and the set is great value too!
