Hello hello! We meet again for my fourth lipstick of the week and I am writing this SO late. It has been a super tiring week, I feel like I’ve got a lot done but at the same time I have so much to do in a short amount of time..anyways let me stop rambling and get into this! I was very kindly gifted the Stila Eternal Love Liquid Lipstick Set from MyBeautyFix2015 on IG here and I was super excited because I have never tried any of the Stila liquid lippies but I’ve heard a lot of good things. As the gift arrived this Monday I simply couldn’t resist trying out one of the shades (I’ll have a review up of the whole set at some point too). So this weeks LOTW was Stila’s Liquid Lipstick in Baci* which is a brand new shade!
Price: You can only get this as part of the eternal love set which costs £20 from MyBeautyFix2015.
Colour: It is a pink/lilac mixed with mauve when first applied, but the weird thing is around an hour later it seems to get a good deal darker? ._. When I swatched it on my hand it reminded me a lot of the liquid lipstick in Stone which I had seen numerous times all over YouTube! For me the colour alone is way too light, I find that it washes me out and also makes my teeth look yellow D: So as much as I tried to wear this by itself I just couldn’t. However all was (and is) not lost, because the gorgeous formula of this meant that I could mix it up with a couple of lipliners and still keep the whole nude theme but adjust it to a colour which worked for me. I think this colour will only really look great on those of you with fair skin, however it works well as a long lasting base.
Formula and Lasting time: The formula is lovely, I see why so many people love these liquid lipsticks. It applies as a liquid and dries comfortably to an almost creamy matte finish. It doesn’t dry out the lips but it does kind of show horrid dry bits if you were silly enough to put on a liquid lipstick without prepping first (like me on monday - excitement does such things). I love how I can hardly feel it on my lips and its transfer proof too. I’ve only worn it with lipliner either just lining the lips, lipliner OVER this, or over the top of my lips when filled in with a lipliner (if that makes sense??). So lasting time has been a decent 5.5hours before I experienced a little fading and a full 7 hours before I realised I really needed to reapply.
Favourite Way To Wear It: I have quite a few favourite ways because the formula is pretty forgiving, so layering a lip pencil over the top works really well! I’ve shown you all how easy it is to switch up the colours above. The middle swatch is Baci alone and on the right hand side the Rimmel 1000 kisses lip liner in Tiramisu alone and next to that is Baci swatched and Tiramisu applied on top. On the left is Rimmel 1000 kisses lip liner in Spice and again Baci with spice over the top. So as you can see it is super versatile which I wasn’t expecting. I apply the liquid lipstick and leave it for about 40 seconds before going over the top with a liner. I then go around the lips with the same liner, or even a slightly deeper one and voila a lovely nudish liquid lipstick!
Overall: I am so grateful to be gifted this set! Although first impressions of the shade were not good, but I’m pretty stoked that its so easy to mix it up and still get an opaque and long-lasting lip. I find the applicator (doe foot) to be good for applying, not too messy. Although having said that you should make sure you wipe the wand carefully before taking it out of the tube as excess product DOES make things a little tricky. I do really like the formula of these and I think the size of these minis are brilliant. Perfect for really getting a feel of the shade AND formula. When I start buying makeup again in May I already have one or two on my wishlist ^_^

Repurchase? I’m in two minds... I can really achieve some beautiful custom liquid lipstick colours with it AND its not too much effort either...but we shall see because there’s a couple of other shades that I’m interested in too.
Have you tried any of the Stila Liquid Lipsticks?
