Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick In Carina ~ Review + Swatches

As a liquid lipstick junkie, I'm embarrased to admit that I only recently tried Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick. For some reason, Stila is a brand I haven't gravitated towards. After trying their All-In-One Color Correcting Palette (review here) and the Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick, that has definitely changed!

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick (3ml, $31) is a highly-pigmented liquid lipstick that boasts a wear time of up to 6 hours. It's enriched with Vitamin E and Avocado Oil for hydration and is free of parabens, sulfates, phlatates, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, GMOs and triclosan.

It's available in 25 shades from bolds to nudes and mattes to shimmers. The shade I'm reviewing is Carina - a matte, vibrant coral!

When it comes to lipstick I'm a sucker for reds, oranges and corals so naturally I was drawn to this shade. The formula is so pigmented, creamy and very opaque - it's a one (swipe) and done lipstick!

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick indeed stays in place all day with minimal transfer. It can withhold drinking and light snacking but if you eat anything oily, it will start to break down. I've managed to get close to 8 hours of wear time which is quite impressive considering the amount of coffee I consume in a day! I did find that it will start to feel a bit dry once it passes the 4 hour mark - not uncommon for liquid lipsticks. It definitely helps to exfoliate and moisturize prior to applying it.

If you're a fan of liquid lipstick, I highly recommend you check these out! The pigment is great and not having to constantly reapply is priceless.

You can find Stila in-store at Shoppers Drug Mart, Murale and Sephora & online at and
