Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick (Patina) – Review

stila patina

If you saw my previous post on Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Amore you’ll know that I’m a big fan of the liquid lipsticks from Stila due to their long lasting, creamy formulas. I picked this up from Marks and Spencer for £15.

This is a creamy liquid lipstick which dries fully matte and it has at least 6 hours of full coverage wear. It has vitamin E in it to help hydrate the lips. I find application with the doe-foot really easy and the lipstick glides on smoothly, however I find myself wiping off the excess each time. I find the best way to apply this is in thin layers to avoid feathering.

After the lipstick has dried it turns out to be that gorgeous pinky-brown Kylie Jenner-esque lip colour that has been so popular recently. I do find that unlike the Amore lipstick, this one is far more drying and actually accentuates the lines in my lips, therefore I apply a lipbalm on top to stop cracking.

The longevity of this lipstick is amazing, it does transfer after eating but it still lasts around 9 hours and I didn’t have to top up even once during my work day. It is such an easy colour to wear during the daytime or even in the evening paired with a smokey eye. I don’t like the fact that it is so drying but wearing a lipbalm over it solves that issue.

MAC Soar Lipliner – Review

300Evening lovelies 🙂 Just a quick post here.

As soon as Soar lipliner from MAC came back into stock I rushed to buy it. Pinky-brown lipsticks have become really popular over the last year and I wanted to try the trend myself. Soar lipliner is a creamy, matte, long-wearing liner. I would describe the colour as a pink with a  brown undertone, on my lips it pulls more nude compared to lighter skintones, nonetheless it looks very pretty. What I also love about this liner is that it really brings out the shape of your lips. Soar is great to use as a lipliner under a lipstick, or just filled in on it’s own.



Until next time ❤
