Product: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick
Review: These are pretty much my staple liquid lipsticks right now. Beso is a gorgeous red. I think it's neutral? but it might lean more towards warm. Definitely not a blue-based red, that's for sure. Patina is a neutral dusty mauve that is my go-to neutral lipstick when I want something long-lasting and am rocking a smokier eye. Which is most of the time, let's be real.
What I love most about these lipsticks is that they go on creamy and opaque. I never feel the need for a second coat, and I can get them to look great with minimal fuss. They're so easy to apply, I rarely use lip liner or concealer for cleanup. I also love that the formula dries matte but doesn't settle into lines. However, because of this, I usually prefer to smile a bit and use a finger to smooth the product and get it into the major creases in my lips. Using this technique prevents me from applying extra product I don't need. Layer on too much, and it starts feeling tacky, which irritates me.
