If you like to blend your lipsticks, contour your lips, and overall use multiple different lipsticks for one fabulous unique look, the everlasting liquid lipsticks are FOR YOU!
A little goes a LONG way, I would never use the actual applicator to apply this onto my lips because it's overload of product - I highly recommend using with a lipstick brush and blending out. You have a long time of being able to move the product around as well, it's not a typical stain where as soon as you apply it it locks down and won't budge, you can take your time perfecting your style and blending this around which I think is amazing. Once the look has set for awhile, it's not going ANYWHERE unless you purposely take it off. It lasts through eating, drinking, kissing, everything.
This particular color (Lolita) is beautiful - it's a burnt red with a very noticeable dark brown hue. Beautiful for a darker vampy lip. Some skin tones may have a harder time pulling off the color but I would say go for it anyways! If you yourself love it, you're pulling it off.
Overall, buy more than one shade of these because they are formulated with the intent of blending them with other colors for a truly unique to you look. All of the shades go beautifully with one another and the possibilities are endless. These really bring the art into makeup.
Be careful when applying because if you don't stay within your lip line, it gets a bit messy. It is hard to wipe off once it is out of the lines, so it is best to be extra precise when applying it. Trust me, I know from experience the first couple of times using it!
You can't go wrong with this liquid lipstick, and I'm sure it will end up being something you carry in your purse for on the go use. It is a fantastic and worthwhile Stila product! It is pricier for a liquid lipstick, but I got it on sale from Ulta for over 50% off, so watch for different sales! Stila also has an annual warehouse sale the week after Black Friday, so I'm crossing my fingers this will be a part of their sale next year!
I do recommend exfoliating before use, and also moisturizing your lips. They are very pigmented, so a careful hand is recommended. I take them off with a combo of whatever oil i have with some toner.
