Stila All Day Liquid Lipstick in Venezia

stila stay all day liquid lipstick in venezia

Last week I stopped by Shoppers Drug Mart on my lunch break to drop off a prize at the post office.  I got suckered into walking through the Beauty Boutique and long story short, here I am reviewing another matte red-orange lipstick.  The world is indeed a marvellous place!  Well, really the special part of the story is that I only left with one product, and it wasn't one of their new Aqua Glow Blushes (though that just might happen next week.).  Anyways Stila has a beautiful new summer launch including four new All Day Liquid Lipsticks.  I already own their classic and true red Beso, and I love the formula.  I'm happy to say Venezia is just as beautiful and long lasting.

A number of years ago I was in Venice and a rather scary man was trying to get me to buy a "genuine" Chanel bag off him on the street.  I said no, and he bartered with me.  I said no again and I walked away.  Well, he followed me through nooks, crannies, and over bridges through Venice when he caught my friend and I in a corner, threatening us with his friends if we didn't buy a purse.  My friend started yelling at him, they almost got in a fight, and I never spoke to a knock off purse man again.  So that's my Venice story.  Every lipstick needs a story.

This liquid lipstick has a classic doe foot applicator, and comes with a pretty gold handle and detailing.  While the applicator can be a bit awkward, once you get the hang of it it is easy to guide it along your lips for the perfect, crisp line. This lip stick retails for $29 at Shoppers, Sephora and Murale.

Stila advertises this product as "A highly-pigmented, liquid lipstick that's weightless on the lips and delivers long-lasting coverage. "  I agree with their claim that this lipstick is both weightless and long-lasting.  While on hot, sticky days I can feel it on my lips, and would prefer something glossier, on an average day this lipstick super lightweight and almost impossible to feel it on.  It packs a punch, lasting a full work day with light eating and drinking.

Ready for work!

With a fresh application it is easy to create a sharp line without the use of a lip liner.  I love how bold this colour is, and how opaque the application is.  One swipe and my lips are covered, with no need for a second coat.  While it is initially shiny, it dries to a nice satin matte with in seconds.  Once its dry, your lips aren't going anywhere!

After a long day at work, lunch, and tea!
When I got home from work the lipstick had faded to an even stain-- no ring of death!  While obviously not as flawless as when I left the house, it is passable, making this a low-maintenance high-pigment lipstick.  Love it!

I don't know about you, but I am in love with this lipstick and with Stila's Summer 2015 launch.  I would love to pick up one of their new cheek glows, and maybe even another lipstick.  *sigh* If only the PR Gods would smile upon me and gift me with the whole set.  Haha a blogger can dream, right? What about you?  Any of their new things catch your eye?  Happy shopping xoxo


  1. That's a beautiful colour!! Victoria Ess

  2. Soooo....that story sounds terrifying. OMG. Glad you didn't get hurt or anything.

    I have a mini of this in Beso I think and boy does it pack a punch! I love Venezia on you, so corally and pretty! I think the most interesting thing about these is the smell. Just like vanilla cupcakes...yum....

    1. It was pretty awful! ButI learned that in Venice you should never even talk to the guy selling great knock offs.

      I love Beso! I have the mini too :) I love everything about Beso! Venezia to me, is Beso but for the summer.
