The Long-wear Liquid Lipstick We’re Obsessed With

When Maria rocked up at work one morning looking like this ↑ (BABE), it took approximately three seconds for the entirety of the marketing team to snap up Stila’s {Liquid Lips} in ‘Fiery’ – the perfect blue-toned red. Sexily sanguineous, it’s universally flattering and beautifully velveteen – a must-have for any lip make up aficionado.

‘This is the first matte {lipstick} I would dare to wear on a night out – it literally stays on… and on with no need for touch-ups. It’s hyper-pigmented and ideal if you’re looking for a low-maintenance red” – says Maria. I’ve since snapped up {Aria} – a sexy, pinky-purple – and Chikay, our Digital Marketing Exec has accumulated every colour (it’s that good).

It’s even scoring rave reviews from CB customers. “I’m really impressed! I have full {lips} which get really dry if I don’t wear lip balm, and although I kept applying it on top of {Liquid Lips}, the colour stayed put for a really long time. I have pale skin and it looks great with the light, coral-pink colour (‘Carina’). It leaves your lips feeling really soft (with no sticky residue like some other stains) and it smells gorgeous. I just love it and will definitely be buying more.”
