Another day, another lipstick for the #365LipstickDays Lipstick Challenge. Today’s lucky contestant is the Stila Notte Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick as I actually have to go to work today live a valuable member of society and even though the urge to wear a green lipstick just to see what reaction I can muster up on the way to work, alas I just don’t have the confidence yet . . .but I’m sure that might go out the window once I get bored off.
Anyway enough waffling on (even though I’m very, VERY good at it), for today’s lipstick I wanted to focus on a brand that I feel I’ve slept on for the last few years. In 2014/15 I was SUPER into Stila Cosmetics especially when they released their Stila Shape & Shade Kit in Dark – which I feel is STILL the best cream contour kit for dark skintones – but I don’t know what happended as they disappeared from my vision and if I hadn’t found the Stila Notte Lipstick in the bottom of my lipstick stash, I doubt I would have even thought to add any of their lipsticks to my challenge.
The Stila Notte Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick – £16 via ASOS –is a creamy-matte, full coverage liquid lipstick that has been designed with a weightless, colour-rich formula that won’t bleed or feather on the lips. Enriched with Vitamin E and avocado oil, the Stila Notte Stay All Day® Liquid Lipstick is meant to softens the lips and stay in place with long-lasting colour. Although this has to be one of the creamiest, liquid lipsticks I have in my collection, I wouldn’t go as far as saying that it softens my lips lol If I wanted soft lips, I would have opted for a classic lipstick. Nevertheless, the Stila Notte lipstick is very opaque, does not weigh down my lips and more importantly does not look patchy on my lips. I got about 5 hours wear from this lipstick before I decided to call it a day and scrub it off.
The applicator on the Stila Notte Liquid Lipstick is pretty much a standard, doe-foot, applicator – nothing special there – but I think it’s a little fluffier than most as it seems to pick up more product per swipe which sets it over the bar as we ALL know how important a fast application is when working with liquid lipsticks. I actually quite like Stila Notte and will add it to my ever expanding makeup bag as this shade is so slept on.
The Stila Notte Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick costs £16.00 and is available to purchase from ASOS.
