Lipsticks of Luxe | Stila Stay All Day Lipstick – Amore

Apologies for the lack of brows and eye make up, but it’s exam time and my life is slowly falling apart (send help, lots of it). I thought I would start a new beauty series to show you all my lipstick collection which, apart from my hair, is what I get asked about the most. Thus “Lipsticks of Luxe” was born, and expect to see a variety of mostly matte, nude and red shades that I seriously can’t get enough of!

So me and my boyfriend were browsing for gifts in M&S a few weeks before Christmas, and I felt a sudden urge to venture into the beauty department (which is something I never do in M&S). To my complete amazement I found out that they sold the Stila Stay All Day Lipsticks (£16.00/3mland they actually had all the colours in stock. Absolute madness. After attempting to buy this product numerous times in Boots, and experiencing disappointment in the lack of stock, I was unbelievably excited.

TIP – It actually retails for cheaper in Boots at £15.00/3ml if you can find them in stock!

The three shades that I was interested in getting the most were: Dolce, Amore, and Fiery. However after swatching in store, I realised that I pretty much have dupe versions of Dolce and Fiery from the Sleek Matte Me Range – so I settled for Amore. And I am so, so glad that I did.

This deep, berry-toned nude is oh-so flattering and the small amount of shimmer in the formula does give some depth to the colour. Stila claims that this lip product provides “Long-lasting colour and stays in place for up to 6 hours of continuous wear” – and it definitely does last a very long timeIt also claims that it has a “weightless” texture and will not bleed or transfer upon application I find that it somehow always leaves a tiny speckle of residue on my teeth, but a quick wipe and it’s gone – so it doesn’t bother me that much. The application itself is even and opaque, so only one or possibly 2 coats are needed for that full colour lip.

Would I recommend it? 100% – it’s definitely worth the splurge.

I also wore this in my Winter Wedding Edit, check it out for some ideas on how to wear it.

Have you tried any Stila products before? What did you think?

    Wow this shade is so flattering on you! I was actually looking at these lipsticks last night on lookfantastic and they only had 1 shade left in stock 🙁 I really need to get my hands on some of these as I absolutely adore the matte finish and it reminds me of the Anastasia Beverly Hills lipsticks xxJenny | Krystel Couture ♥
