Red Hot! Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

I have pretty big lips—as you can probably see from photos. Back in college if you told me that I’d be fearless with my lipstick choices and wear a statement lip practically everyday, I wouldn’t have believed you. I only wore lipstick on rare occasions and was too scared to try anything besides a swipe of lip balm while out during the day.

Today, on the other hand, the sky is the limit when it comes to a lip color. I love my complexion and being black in general because literally every lipstick looks good on our skin tones, trust me. However, I do admit that I am a firm believer in there being certain colors you should / shouldn’t wear per season, but one color that I feel is timeless is a bold red.

Red in general is my favorite color, so it’s only right that this was my initial foray into the world of bold lip action. Fortunately, with the help of one of my best friends Alexis, I was able to find my staple red early on – Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick ($24).

This lipstick from Stila was literally a life changer. I’m adventurous when it comes to textures but my favorite is a matte finish, especially one that doesn’t cake up or dry out your lips. Made with Vitamin-E and Avocado Oil, Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick goes on smooth to hydrate lips and then dries matte for full-day coverage. I am telling you it works, even after eating / drinking. Sadly, not making out — still trying to find one that can surpass that ;).

Now go, run to your nearest Sephora and grab you one … or five!
