AH EEE YAHH SAY DO YOU REMEMBER….AH EE YAH DANCING IN SEPTEMBER….*song plays*
What better way to welcome September than with a red lip? I received a sample of Stila’s liquid lipstick in Beso in one of my Sephora summer orders and decided to give it a whirl. Here are my thoughts!
What it promises:
~ creamy, full-coverage lip color
~ intense moisture + hydrates and softens lips
~ bold, long-lasting pigment
~ stay in place for up to six hours of continuous wear + color-rich formula does not bleed or transfer
~ feels weightless on lips
What it delivers:
Before wearing any bold lip color, I like to prep my lips with some Vaseline and sugar as a gentle exfoliant. I then apply a layer of lip balm. Prep ALWAYS pays off when it comes to wearing a bold lip.
I wore this color to a brunch with The Boy and scarfed down tea, eggs, potatoes and sausages with it on. I then took a nap in the afternoon after a morning out. I woke up from the nap and the color was as intense as it was when I first applied it. This color does NOT budge through eating and sleeping.
It definitely feels weightless and is long-lasting. The only drawback is that it is drying – my lips felt really dry halfway through the day (ergo before nap) and I had to apply some lipbalm after the nap.
Price point: at CAD$29 for 0.10oz, this lipstick is comparable to other lipsticks of similar mid-level brands. I received this sample size as a freebie from Sephora as part of my (many) orders from them this summer.
Overall rating: 3.5 oranges out of 5 oranges
Thoughts: I am giving this product 3.5 oranges because it does almost everything it promises (except for the ‘intense moisture’ part). I love the color – it is a true, bold red and I love its staying power. Definitely going to be rocking this color this fall!
