How to make your liquid lipstick last all day

Posted on 26 July 2021

What do you want from your liquid lipstick? You want it to make you feel sassy, confident and ready to face the day. Feathering, smudging and fading are big no-nos!

For something that should be so simple, finding a long-lasting lippy can be an epic struggle. That is, unless you’ve got Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in your makeup bag.

With its 12-hour staying power, lightweight feel and creamy matte finish, our liquid lipstick enriched with Vitamin E and avocado oil will make your lips look and feel great all day – if you prep, prime and apply like a pro. Here’s how…


Step 1: Prep

If your lips are even slightly dry, liquid lipstick will do its best to find (and accentuate) those areas. Keep flaky lips at bay by exfoliating and applying lip balm first.

Step 2: Prime

Next, you need to double prime those lips. Start by applying concealer or a lightweight foundation all over your lips to fill in cracks and create an even canvas. For a second layer of priming, you’ll need Stila Stay All Day Lip Liner. Applying liner around your lip line will help contour and define, while filling your lips with liner will help prevent fading.

Step 3: Apply

A matte liquid lipstick will stay in place longer than its shinier counterparts, so take your time for the perfect application. Apply a first layer of lipstick and blot with a two-ply tissue separated in two. Leaving the tissue in place, dust a little powder or eyeshadow over your lips. Remove the tissue and apply a final, glorious layer of lippy.

Lipstick that stays put. It’s not much to ask, is it? So bag yourself a Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in one of our drop-dead gorgeous shades today.
