Stila // Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss


Stila make fun cosmetics plain and simple. I've loved this brand since I was a little girl but couldn't always stretch my pocket money far enough to purchase everything I wanted. Now that I earn more than £5 a week (that was me saving my dinner money) I can indulge my need for awesome cosmetics. 

The last couple of years I've been naughty and strayed from purchasing Stila only for the simple reason that I was enticed by other brands I had yet to try. But, as you can see from the pictures this is purple and I am still deeply addicted to purple lips. Stila offer eight colours in their Stay All Day vinyl Lip Gloss range and the shade I chose is called Fuchsia Vinyl. 


This gloss isn't just a standard gloss so don't let the picture above fool you. It's a high-shine, high lacquer and highly pigmented formula that feels so natural on the lips. I went off gloss at one point because I hated that heavy, overly sticky feeling on my lips and when the wind would blow all of my hair would get stuck on my lips. This gloss doesn't have those issues. 

It does have some stain properties, I'm not entirely sure if that was deliberate but the colour does last a long time, even after washing your face and scrubbing your lips. The formula is infused with seaweed extract (you can't taste it) and organic green coffee oil (also can't taste it) - these ingredients help keep your lips soft and nourished as well as increasing elastin and collagen, increasing collagen means those fine lines that can leave you looking puckered disappear temporarily *yay*

Swatch time...


It's lush isn't it. This was one quick swipe but you can see there's a ton of colour in there. If I had applied another swipe this would have been fully opaque. You can see how it shines without looking like a gelatinous mess and nope my hair didn't stick to it and get all disgusting in the weekend's wind. 

Other shades available are Melon Vinyl (pink-coral), Hot Pink Vinyl (Pink), Scarlet Vinyl (gorgeous red), Merlot Vinyl (deep wine), Nude Vinyl (nude), Terracota Vinyl (brick red) and Poppy Vinyl (light red).  They cost £18 each and while they're more expensive than say Bourjois or other high street brands you can absolutely feel and see the difference once it's applied - it's incredible.

  2. I want to try these but think they're quite pricey at £18.00 each. Are they worth a splurge?

    1. Hey Mari,
      Normally I would panic at the thought of spending that much on a lip product too but having tried this one (and loving it) I would absolutely say they're worth the money. I have pretty high standards too and if you're not a huge lipstick lover then this is a fantastic option in my opinion. Definitely go for it if you can hun. x
