Last payday I decided to treat myself (I say “treat myself” like I don’t do this every month…) and popped on to Beauty Bay to grab myself some new products to try out. Of course, I couldn’t come away without a lipstick or two!
Stila is a brand that I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews about in beauty community and have been wanting to try out a few of their eyeshadow palettes for a while, but before I take the plunge I thought I’d give their lipsticks a shot! Looking on the Beauty Bay website now it looks like they no longer sell this lipstick duo which is a shame as it would be a lovely gift or, like me, is a nice way for you to test out some new lipsticks without purchasing the full size. However if you pop over to Cult Beauty right now there is a similar set for £18.00 for 3 lipsticks, which includes Beso from this set and two other gorgeous purple shades – see here
Whilst a full size Stay All Day liquid lipstick from Stila is £16 for 3ml, this duo was £12.50 for two 1.5ml liquid lipsticks which I think is a really good deal!
The colour selection in this duo is stunning for spring as it gives you two vibrant colours that can completely transform your makeup look and brighten up your appearance. I tend to reach for dusty rose shades or burgundy’s when it comes to lipstick, but after swatching and wearing them a few times I can’t wait to try them out more with some different makeup looks!
The first shade in the duo is ‘beso’ which is a gorgeous vibrant red and the second shade is ‘bella’, a neon fuchsia. My first impression was how extremely pigmented these lipsticks are; with just one swipe you have such a rich colour which especially for a red shade can be difficult to achieve with other lipsticks.
The lipstick applicator wand is a standard doe foot applicator but has a flexibility that helps the wand hug the curves of your lips and apply the colour evenly. Just one dip in the applicator is enough to coat both lips without it being patchy or just moving the product around.
The main claim for this product is that is stays all day which I have to say whilst it is long lasting and kiss-proof, it doesn’t last all day but for the price I love these lipsticks and it layers on top of itself beautifully. If you’re looking for some new statement lipsticks then I highly recommend these!
