Pucker Up with Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Fiore

Happy Valentines Day! I figured what better post for this holiday than a hot pink lipstick? After all, this is the holiday for smooching!

Today I bring you Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Fiore. Here is what Stila has to say about this product – “A creamy-matte, full-coverage lip color delivers intense moisture with bold, long-lasting color and stays in place for up to 6 hours of continuous wear. The texture is weightless on lips and delivers superb comfort and its color-rich formula will not bleed or transfer. Enriched with Vitamin E and avocado oil, Stay All Day® Liquid Lipstick hydrates and softens the lips so they look and feel beautiful!” Sounds great to me! I wanted a bold, bright color to spice up my lip-product collection and figured a hot pink would be great for Valentines – I grabbed the shade that really caught my eye, Fiore. Fiore is a cool-toned bright pink.

This is lipstick that dries to a matte finish, so I made sure my lips were exfoliated and moisturized before I put this on. Matte lipsticks can really highlight any chapping or dry spots. Please ignore the foundation marks around the edge of my lip, my clean-up job looked better without the zoom, haha.

The applicator had a lot of product on it, so I grabbed a fine brush and used that to apply. My edges are still a little rough. I should have used lipliner – I looked for some but don’t think I actually own any. I’m not sure how that’s possible? Anyways, here is the end result -

The pros:

  1. I love the matte finish!
  2. A little product goes a long way, so this baby should last awhile.
  3. It really does last a long time, provided you don’t use another product on top of it. I put this on before work and it was still on after lunch, hours later.
  4. I love this pink  :)  It’s so bold but beautiful.
  5. It felt creamy and glided on smoothly.
  6. It doesn’t get on my teeth.

The cons:

  1. The matte finish means it dries quickly but this product is also rather drying.
  2. Lip gloss or balm on top of this eliminates the “Stay All Day” part of this product, making it wear off much quicker.
  3. The hydration claim is malarkey, at least in my case. If it dries your lips out, it can look a little cracked and/or crusted. Which isn’t a fabulous lip look. If it cracks is when I toss gloss on top of it.

My verdict? I’m so happy with this lipstick! I love the bold, matte finish and the best part to me is how long it lasts. I hate touching up my lipstick or lipgloss every hour, so I love that I can put this on and then not worry about it again. I’ll take a little bit of drying for that! I am definitely going to think about getting another one of these in a different color  :)   You can purchase this lipstick from Stila, Ulta, or Sephora for $22/.10 oz.

What do you think? Purchase or pass?
