Stila is a beautiful brand, which is unfortunately currently not available in The Netherlands. Luckily Cult Beauty has great shipping options, so you can get hold of the products. I bought these cute mini liquid lipsticks on Black Friday, but when they arrived I thought that the colors didn’t suite me well. Until two weeks ago when I rediscovered them and gave them a second chance. This was quite successful and I got a lot of compliments on my lipstick when I was wearing them. For me the colors are quite out there, since I normally wear nude ‘my lips but better’ colors on my lips.
These liquid lipsticks are one of the first I’ve ever tried. I heard a lot about the hype and wanted to try it out for myself. The formula of these is not overly drying on your lips and it dries down completely mat. It does have an intense vanilla like scent, but when you applied it to your lips the scent is gone. Like the name suggests these lipsticks stay almost all day and wear beautifully. When I apply these at eight in the morning the first touch up I need to do will be long past lunchtime. Even when I eat and drink in between it doesn’t come off!
The lipstick set with tree mini liquid lipsticks comes in two different ‘shade selections’. The one I bought is ‘Naturally Nude’ and the other set is called ‘Bright and Bold’. You get three mini versions of the lipsticks, which are awesome for on traveling or to take with you on the go.
The top color is ‘Perla’, which is a dusty pink with a lilac undertone. On my skintone this is a beautiful nude and the least ‘bold’ one out of the three.
‘Patina’ is the second top color and is a deeper pink with a brown undertone. In the tube this one looks pink, but my experience is that it dries up much more brown nude.
The last and bottom color is ‘Serenata’. This is a light brown chocolaty color, with a slight pink undertone. On my fair skin this shows up as a dark brown, darker than it looks like in the tube.
In my experience these colors dry up a little darker compared to the color in the tube. My skin tone is pretty fair, so these colors are quite out there for me. If you have a deeper skin tone I think these will be beautiful nudes. I wear ‘Perla’ and ‘Patina’ the most, because I think these suites me best.
