Girls, if you’re looking for a new lip product that’s perfect for Spring and Summer, I think I’ve found it.
The Stila Stay All Day Vinyl Lipgloss in 02 Melon Vinyl is so perfect for the warmer months its unreal; the colour is nothing short of gorgeous.
The Melon Vinyl shade is a vibrant coral pink that is as bold in colour as it is formula.
The Stila Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss line really pack a punch with their pigmentation. There’s a whole range of shades from the deepest reds through to the brightest pinks and they all provide an excellent colour pay off. Melon Vinyl looks as pigmented on the lips as it does in the tube which is so rare with a lot of lip gloss products.
However this isn’t like any other lip gloss I’ve tried because of its super high shine, lacquered appearance. I’ve tried plenty of highly pigmented lip products before, lots of ones that make your lips look shiny and plenty that are long lasting, but its rare to find a lip product that does all three while being comfortable and hydrating to wear.
It leaves my lips looking so full and shiny, they catch the light and look the best that they can be. The lip gloss doesn’t cling to any dry patches on my lips, settle into fine lines or bleed, which is fantastic given that it is so long wearing.
I love that I can put this gloss on in the morning and by lunch time, it is still on my lips, despite drinking, which makes it an ideal choice for a summer night out when you’re wanting a bold, bright lip colour that you don’t need to touch up often.
The formula of this lip gloss is one that I think people will either love or dislike.
It is really comfortable to wear because it feels quite nourishing on the lips. Theres seaweed extract in the formula which helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the lips and to seal in moisture and theres also organic green coffee oil which helps to hydrate the lips, increase elastin and collagen production as well as preventing damage from UV exposure. Of course, I have no way of really testing if those claims actually work but I can say that it does feel moisturising on my lips and it doesn’t dry them out, regardless of how long I wear it for.
The beauty about this lip colour is that it is so easy to apply, you literally just swipe and go, and the wand is curved to fit the lip contour very well. However the lip colour does literally stick to the lips and I think this is where some people may not get on with it. The lip gloss does feel sticky and tacky on the lips but thats what keeps it hanging around for so long. The high shine, glossy finish is always there and the colour doesn’t separate or look uneven at all, no matter how many times you smack your lips together. So for that reason, I think the sticky formula is necessary and actually welcomed because it fulfils its purpose.
I absolutely love this gloss. Its so ideal if you want a bright hit of watermelon pink colour that lasts for hours and hours.
