Thoughts: I've been wanting to try Stila liquid lipsticks for a long time. I even bought the holiday collection last year but I haven't had the chance to play with it. I just have too much stuff that needs love. That's another story!
Now how it looks on me...
Borghese Eclissare Color Eclipse 5 Shades of Torrid on the eyes.
ColourPop Super Shock Shade in I Heart This on the lid and Memebox Pony Shine Easy Glam Eyeshadow Palette 1 on the crease and outer v.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying. I just sniffed all three and they all smell the same. It's on the chemical side but not to the point it's overwhelming, at the same time, it has a sweet scent. The first thing that came to mind is butter scotch. Secondly, I have the mini version but it looks exactly like the full-size. It's sturdy with a tight seal. It makes it very travel-friendly especially the mini-size you can put it in your pocket. I also like that it has a see through packaging especially since these three are close to having similar colors. I can distinguish the colors apart instead of reading the name on the bottom of the packaging.. The applicator looks like every other liquid lipsticks. It has a slanted tip on one side making it easy to outline the lips. The only difference is that these are very flexible. I don't know if the full-size product is flexible as these but it doesn't make a difference when you apply it. It's very sturdy on the lips. Third, the consistency for these liquid lipsticks is on the medium. These are liquidity but it's also creamy. It doesn't completely feel like liquid lipsticks but it doesn't completely feel like creamy lipstick in a tube. It's in-between if that makes sense. It's easy to apply and it glides on the lips. It's gentle and does not tug. With that said, it goes on smoothly and it's pigmented. There are a lot of liquid lipsticks in the market and they do not dry matte. These dry matte within seconds and does not come off. Fourth, the colors are gorgeous. Perla and Patina are great all year round for day and nighttime. Serenata is great fall to winter season. It's more on the darker side especially on my light to medium skin. Lastly, it lasted until I ate or drank. I have a tendency to wipe my mouth after each meal. I noticed most of the colors came off the center of the lips. My co-worker can wear it all day long and it doesn't come off. Then again she never wipes her mouth. It's not uncomfortable but I wouldn't say it's the most comfortable. Even though I have dry lips, it felt fine on me. The best part is it did not express the lines on my lips to the point of dislike. I like seeing some because it's my characteristic. I hate when I see the deep line in the center of my bottom lip. This didn't do that.
