Stila’s Long Wear Liquid Lip Color collection

This collection appears to be on its way out. The Stila and Sephora websites each list five colors, and four of them are out of stock at Sephora. (I hit Stila’s Last Chance section and cleaned UP!!!) The lip color is in a glass tube, and the tube glass doesn’t appear as thick as the Buxom Lip Polish tubes; so I’d worry about it breaking in transit. The applicators are doefoot, but oddly shaped and a bit flimsy-ish. They remind me more of the Pretty Amazing Lip Color applicators - which just annoy me to no end. These applicators aren’t quite as curved, so there isn’t quite as much product deposited on my lips; but the flimsier post means that I still feel like I don’t really have maximum control and am putting more product on my lips than I’d like.

The colors are fairly opaque, and adhere well and don't feel heavy or drying. I do find that I have to touch up a few times throughout the day, but not every fifteen minutes. I have all of them except Fiery, because I'm not much of a brighter-red-lip person. (Stila and Sephora also seem to have a disagreement over whether Patina is a Long Wear Liquid Lip color, or a Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick. I'm going to say that since it's Stila's product, they're probably the authority on which is which.)

Most of this line is now discontinued. Coral, Petal and Muse spent quite a long time in the Last Chance section of Stila's website before selling out entirely. Fiery, Patina, and Caprice are still grouped as part of the regular line, but are currently sold out. I don't know if this means that I now have three tubes each of some discontinued items, but I'm good with it. Coral, Petal, and Muse really are nice shades and I'm glad that I got a chance to buy them - and at more than half off the regular price!

This collection contained:

  • Coral — medium soft coral-peach creme
  • Caprice — medium hot pink creme
  • Fiery — bright red creme
  • Muse — soft mauve creme
  • Patina — deep mauve-rose creme
  • Petal — soft medium pink creme
