I was strolling down the aisles of Sephora for an affordable and wide selection of liquid matte lipsticks and much to my surprise it was Stila who had it all ! Not only is the price just right , they have probably the largest color selection in this particular formula .
Bellissima is descried as a neutral pink but in the tube it looks like a yellow based milky pink . On my lips it looks like a pastel pinky peach matte lipstick . Its very comfortable to wear, lip lined were not accentuated and most importantly my lips did nit feel drained of moisture. I was able to comfortably wear it for 5 to 6 hours with no touch ups and it didn't look patchy at all . I love matte lips but I always hate the look of accentuated lip lines and cracked or chapped lips .However , this was not the case with Bellissima . Despite being such a light and pastel shade it looked even ,was opaque in one swipe and had a completely matte finish .
The only grip I have is that the wand has too much extra product on and I ended up using a lip brush to touch up when necessary . I know right now the guerlain and hourglass formulas are all the rave but I highly urge you to give the Stila one's a try as well .
Price ? $ 22 .
