FOTD: Smokey Gray + Matte Rose Lips

I know it’s been a while, but I’m back! Here’s a look using one of the Kevyn Aucoin Essential Eyeshadow Palettes in #3. The colors in this eyeshadow palette are cool-toned. For the eye look, I only used the colors in the palette.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks

Allow me to introduce you to this wonderful lip product!

What Stila says:

“A creamy-matte, full-coverage lip color that delivers bold, long-lasting color and stays in place for up to 6 hours of continuous wear. The texture is weightless on lips and delivers superb comfort and its color-rich formula will not bleed or transfer. Enriched with Vitamin E and avocado oil, Stay All Day┬« Liquid Lipstick softens the lips so they look and feel beautiful!”

I am a huge fan of these lip colors as they do live up to the 6 hour claim! They aren’t drying at all, and I love the matte finish. They also don’t flake! They are pigmented; however, out of the colors I own, a few are more pigmented than others. I’ve found that Fiore and Patina may need an additional coat to make it truly opaque. In terms of application, a little goes a long way since more product than needed usually ends up on the applicator after removing the wand from the tube. I usually don’t bother wearing any other lip product with these, but if you choose to then keep in mind that they dry fairly quickly. Although these lip colors do live up to the 6 hour claim, be cautious when eating oily foods. I’ve worn these when eating foods such as a burger or pasta and the lip color started to fade slightly in the center of the lips because of the oil (since oil dissolves makeup).

Here’s a pic of me wearing Tesoro, a beautiful orange-ish red. It’s my favorite color out of this line-up:
