Searching for the best red liquid lipstick, I felt like Goldilocks. I wanted the color not too orange but not too blue, the finish not so dry that it cracked but not so glossy that it slipped around. After testing several brands and shades, I wound up discovering my “just right” in a trial size with a Sephora order – Stila’s Stay All Day liquid lipstick in the shade Beso. The true red shade is at once super pigmented and easy to apply, the texture is soft and comfortable yet doesn’t transfer or fade. So on days I want my red lip to last, Stila’s liquid lip is now the only one I reach for.
