Hope you all are doing well. I know I have been pretty slow with my reviews, but it is after all the month of fasting for me and that itself makes it difficult to take out time out of an already hectic schedule, but I promise to bring for you many many more pending reviews on amazing new stuff right after Eid :D. Today’s review is on Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in the shade Beso.
$22 for full size. I have the deluxe version.
My Experience with Stila Beso Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick:
Packaging: Comes in a simple see-through tube through which you can see the shade clearly and it has a slanted tip with a doe-foot applicator which does make application easy and precise, but if you are someone new to this whole liquid lipstick thing, I would recommend you use a lip brush to get the most clean application as any mistakes made during application can be difficult to clean.
Tip: If you do however make a mistake, you can clean it up by taking a little bit of concealer on a slanted brush and draw out the edge and blend it slightly so that it does not look too harsh.
Texture/Consistency: This liquid lipstick has a very smooth and creamy texture. It is not super thick yet it is not runny. It spreads easily on the lips and dries quickly within a minute or so. It is best not to purse the lips together when it is still in the wet stage as it will give it that non-uniform appearance.
Shade: The shade “Beso” is an absolutely beautiful bombshell red. This shade of true red will flatter all skin tones in my opinion. It is not too blue based and not too orange either. It is a perfect in between which makes it ideal. I did not find this to make my teeth look whiter. This shade is fantastic for wearing at desi weddings or parties or even on dates when you just want your man smitten.
Pigmentation and Finish: The pigmentation of this liquid lipstick is amazing, one swipe gives you full opaque coverage. You could do 2 layers to get an even intense and even pigmentation, but I found that doing more than one layer on my lips tends to make this bunch up and feel even more drying. The finish after the lipstick dries is true matte, there’s no shine at all.
Feel on Lips: Like all liquid or long wear lip products, this can feel drying, especially as the day wears on. I naturally have dry lips, so wearing a liquid lipstick has always been an issue, but I still found this comfortable enough to wear throughout the day if I have taken care to keep my lip in good condition with regular doses of pampering with lip balm and exfoliation. I did not find it to crack or peel or accentuate/sink into fine lines.
Staying Power: This truly is a long-wear lip product. Once dry, it becomes almost fully transfer proof/kiss proof, which is such an advantage when wearing red lipstick. It easily survives for 6-7 hours with snacking and many drinks, but it does fade from the inside of my lips after a full meal. This is especially true if you are eating a meal with lot of oil/ grease as that breaks down makeup and makes it prone to smearing.
Overall, I do really like this product and will recommend it for all liquid lipstick lovers. This shade is a must have too.
