STILA LIQUID LIPSTICK REVIEW: STAY ALL DAY NATURALLY NUDE

A little while ago I picked up a gorgeous little trio of nude liquid lipsticks from Mecca Cosmetica and have been dying to share them with you.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks are the bomb because they last for ages. I found that one application stayed put for a good 4-5 hours, which is really good considering I drink a lot of water, eat a lot of food and sip a lot of coffee.

The easy to use sponge wand makes application a breeze however I would recommend popping a little lip balm on first so it doesn’t look patchy. A word of warning for first time liquid lipstick users, these lipsticks are super pigmented! A little bit goes a long way, making them great value for money. The creamy matte finish is really beautiful and not drying. Once on the lips, the lipstick has a really nice weightless feel and feels quite nourishing, thanks to added Vitamin E and Avocado Oil. I also found that the lipstick wore off evenly throughout the day, not in patches.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks retail from $35.00 at Mecca Cosmetica and come in a huge range of colours. A great price point for a product that is hard wearing, nourishing and lasts forever.

Check out the different colours below, tested on a light-medium skin tone.

Winter Beauty Edit: Makeup

I’m big on favouritism when it comes to makeup. I know what I like, what works for me and while I love trying new products, nothing beats your old faithful bits and pieces that just work every time. Check out my makeup staples for winter. Tried, tested and forever cherished.

1. Bare Minerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation

I love this lightweight, silky smooth formula that creates the perfect natural effect. Coverage can be adjusted easily and the built in brightening serum packed with Vitamin C means your skin appears luminous always, even on the gloomiest of winter days. Its affordable and lasts for ages, as only the smallest amount is required for a day’s coverage.

2. MAC Lipstick in Ruby Woo

You can’t go wrong with a bold lip colour in the middle of winter and this MAC shade is perfect for glamming up your workwear and for sporting long into the night. This matte formula is great for staying put all day, and with a little bit of lip balm underneath, lips stay hydrated. I love the creamy texture of this lippy, just as much as I love its deep red hue.

3. Mecca Cosmetica Nail Polish in Boadacia

Mecca never fails to impress with their Artistry Nail Polish range. Colours range from subtle nudes to bright and bold and I am just loving this deep burgundy shade for cooler days. Mecca Cosmetica nail polish is great because it glides on easily and lasts forever. Polish up this season with this daring varnish.

4. NARS Bronzing Powder in Laguna

The bronzing hero of the beauty world never fails to disappoint. NARS have nailed it with the globally award winning bronzing compact that creates a beautifully natural, sun-kissed glow to even the fairest of them all. Add some colour to your mug with this absolute champion.

5. NARS Highlighting Blush in Albatross

This little beauty is loaded with shimmer to add instant radiance to your complexion. What I love most about this illuminating powder is how light it is, blending easily into the skin adding the most subtle glow. Wear alone or with other cheek products to add some dimension.
