Ravenous for Red Lipstick: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

Valentine’s Day 💖 is right around the corner, so this is a purr-fect time to celebrate that most sanguine of seductresses — scarlet! The Ravenous for Red Lipstick series features the crimsons I’m currently cuckoo for.

Your makeup fun fact of the day: Beso, as in the name of Stila’s stunning Beso lipstick, means “kiss” in Spanish.


I actually kissed everyone in sight while I was wearing this lipstick yesterday.

OK, maybe not everyone… I didn’t think the grumpy checkout lady at Target would appreciated it, but Tabs got a smattering of kisses on the top of his head (right between the ears is the sweet spot), Connor got a few tummy kisses, and El Hub got a few kisses on the cheek.

Matte true red Stila Beso liquid lipstick left a whisper of crimson behind, so FYI, Beso isn’t kiss-proof, but it is long-lasting enough to survive two cups of coffee, a snack and a meal.

I think it fades very well, as a matter of fact, and it doesn’t leave that gross line of product on your bottom lip as it wears off (you know the one).

Most liquid lipsticks vacuum every last molecule of moisture outta your lips, but this one is downright comfortable. I wore it all day long yesterday and there was absolutely no sign of flakes on my kisser at the end of the day.


The creamy feather-light formula is thinner than Maybelline Super Stay Ink in Dancer (but not as light as the NARS Powermattes), and I can barely feel it at all.

Have you ever worn the MAC Retro Mattes? If so, do you like them? If you do, you’ll probably dig Stila Beso.

  • It’s unflavored, although there is a slight floral fragrance, which dissipates quickly.
  • Highly pigmented, so expect 100% coverage
  • The precise doe-foot applicator means you won’t need lip liner.
  • I get about six hours of wear time.
  • It doesn’t settle into my lip lines, yay!

The short take? Beso is so fabulous that I could 💋 kiss it! Smooch it at Sephora, Ulta or online.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
