If you can color inside the lines, you too can rock the red!
I've never used liquid lipstick before. My first thought when making the decision to purchase this product was the nightmarish time I had trying to learn how to use liquid eyeliner. (Let's just say that was a fight I had to give up after many attempts to give myself cat eyes, yet coming out looking like a three year old went all Picasso on my face.) But, I figured I'd give it a shot. I love bold lipsticks, and am not afraid to try colors others shy away from. And, I'm always game for a lipstick that lasts.
First, this lipstick lasts. Good lord, it lasts. Once it completely set, I'm pretty sure I could climb a tree with my face and still have a perfect pucker. And I love that it didn't dry my lips out. I enjoy long lasting lipsticks, but find that it normally doesn't work well with my unnaturally dry lips.
My only issue was trying to put it on. The first time I did it, I put it on like normally lipstick. Bad idea. A little bit goes a long way. You also need to have a bit of a graceful hand when putting it on. So, it took a few tries for me to not look like a late 90's punk band, lead singer. But, once I got the hang of it, I was rocking that red lipstick all up and down the aisles of the grocery store.
All in all, I think it's a good product!
Holy Permanence Batman!
This was comedically the wrong shade and stained the sides of my mouth so much so that I resembled the joker. Be aware before application that it will stay and stay once you apply!
Love love love!!!
I got this today in the mall and omg I love the lasting power on these guys!!!! I applied it ONCE at 11am and it's now 9:14pm and it is still on!!! I'm so happy I finally found a produce that lasts all day (even after drinking, eating and kissing my husband!)
Looooong lasting, but horrible color
1. Long lasting color. Like, so long I felt like I needed a microdermabrasion to get it all off
2. Love the "gloss to matte lipstick" application
HIDEOUS color. Hideous. I thought it would be a vibrant but still approachable pink, but it was so pink and so opaque and so matte that I looked, as others have said, like a clown.
So, if Stila would release a more "normal for human female" colors, I'd be all over this. Or, if the color were quite sheer, so you just get a hint of pink color. But as it is, I can't recommend it.
So bright... Too bright?
I received the hot pink Bella color, and the color is a true shocking pink. It's really too bright for me to use often. It works better if toned down with some balm first. The consistency is also a little too slick, so it's easy to misapply.
