Having way more lip products than anyone should like to admit, it isn’t often that one comes along and steals my heart so much that I wear it every single day. But when this particular product which has been on my wishlist for what seems like forever – and it is always sold out – finally made its way home with me, I fell head over heels…
The Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina is a mid-tone pinky-mauve. It applies creamy and glossy, but dries down fairly quickly to a matte finish. Unlike some other liquid lipsticks, it doesn’t feel overly heavy or drying on the lips. You can definitely feel it, but it feels fairly comfortable. This has also got to be one of the longest lasting formulas I have ever tried – it will last through eating and drinking and is my go-to option for a long day. It has a doe-foot applicator, which is small enough to aid precision but it definitely requires a little more effort than your standard lipstick.
I was never fully on board with the liquid lipstick trend, but this formula has definitely got me hooked. It’s understandable why it is never in stores or online, so if you do end up spotting it then I would highly recommend that you pick it up.
