My Experience with Stila Aria 04 Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick:
I have been on a “liquid lipstick high” lately. On my recent purchase, I picked up this liquid lipstick from Stila in the shade “Aria” mainly because I fell in love with this color. It seemed very different from the usual pinks and reds I wear.
Packaging: Comes in a simple tube with a doe-foot applicator. The applicator is easy to use and does give precise application. The doe foot does pick up too much product, so you do need to wipe off some product before you apply it.
Texture and Pigmentation: This liquid lipstick is thin in consistency, but it is not watery. It spreads easily and goes on like BAM- full opaque pigmentation. You do need to be very careful with its application as any mistake can be difficult to clean and it can leave a streaky mess. I find that the most flawless application is with the thinnest layer on the lips. If I apply it in a thick layer or more than one coat, it does tend to bunch up and crack easily. Also, it is best not to purse your lips together when this lipstick is still in its liquid state on the lips as that will give it that un-uniform look. It does dry quickly in a minute or so to a complete matte finish without any hint of shine.
Shade: The shade Aria is described as a magenta plum. It definitely has a very strong purple tone to it and has a vampy look. This is definitely a statement lipstick and is bound to catch attention whenever you wear it. I do feel it will suit most skin tones from medium to deep.
Feel on lips: This product like most matte finish liquid lipsticks, it can be a bit drying, but does not feel uncomfortable. You do need to take care to moisturize and exfoliate the lips to prep it for a smooth application. It will not be forgiving if you have cracked, chapped or dry lips. It does feel slightly sticky during the initial hour of application, but the feeling does goes away eventually and then you cannot feel it on the lips at all. It is completely transfer proof.
Staying Power: Staying power is fantastic. I get 7-8 hours of wear with very minimal fading. It survives through snacks and drinking, but does fade from the inside of the lips after a full meal. If the meal is especially oily, I did find it tends to slide out of the lip line. You definitely need a touchup after a meal.
Overall, I absolutely love this product, especially this unique shade. Stila does have a good range of shade selection in this line. I will recommend this liquid lipstick.
