HELLO EVERYBODY!Matte liquid lipsticks from Stila are super hyped and I think I know the reason behind it. The brand usually retails minis of their lipsticks in sets, so there’s always a good opportunity to try out some shades at once. There’s even a chance that you use all of them up. (the size of each item is 1.5 ml). I was a lucky gal when I had a chance to try out these three shades right away: Beso, Caramello and Splendore Shimmer.
They offer one of my most favorite formulas - creamy. You need to apply it with the thinnest as possible layer, as the product never sets completely, maybe by the evening only. I immediately got used to that texture and for me, it feels comfortable since I hate all those dreadfully drying lipsticks.
The staying power is good. If I don’t eat during the day, then I’m sure to see the product present on my lips by the evening. If I do eat something, especially some fatty food, then the lipstick will stay only at the contours. But it isn’t a problem to touch up!
The applicator is soft and convenient.
From the left to the right: Caramello, Splendore Shimmer, Beso.
The pigmentation is awesome. One swipe and the swatches already look bright and bold.
As you’ve already noticed I have two standard matte shades and one is shimmering matte in my collection.
Now let’s stop on each shade separately and I’d like to start off with the Caramello:
This one really looks like the so popular Cashmere
lipstick from Lime Crime
. It also looks complicated but shows pretty good results even if I apply it with a thin layer:
The shade Splendore Shimmer:
The easiest one application-wise:
The shade Beso:
It looks a little bit patchy in the swatches but the problem doesn’t exist on my lips. It’s also applied with one layer:
