Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing!!
I was looking for a long wear matte lip cream and was directed to this. The salesgirl was super helpful and told me that Patina was a shop favorite so I tried it and loved the color right away! Patina is a great neutral color, like a dusky rose. Anyway, I wore it today to my family's early Thanksgiving dinner and it lasted all day!! I drank water and beer & ate a full turkey dinner. I am truely amazed by this lip cream. It isn't drying at all and it's been on for 8 hours! I will definitely be trying other colors!
Most Helpful Critical Review Zero stars was not an option; HATED this item!
We purchased this item to use for competitive cheer after explaining we needed a red matte color that would stay in place during long days of cheer competitions because the sales clerk said that it would stay in place and "won't come off without a good makeup remover." A few teammates purchased it for the same reasons. This did not end up being the case for us. It smeared all over faces, clothes and anything that even brushed across their lips. It DID however require a lot to get the color the smearing caused off. It wouldn't let me give zero stars, so 1 star it is.
Reviewed by 3329 customers Great formula but color WAY off
Ashley from Louisville, KY
I would be giving this product 5 starts if it wasn't for the color being so off.
Apparently they recently changed it. I tried on a sample of "perla" in the store and loved it, it was the perfect shade on me. So I immediately got it home and put in on and it not even close to the shade I tried on in the store. It was now purple instead of a nude pink. At first I thought maybe I bought the wrong one but I checked the box and it was correct, even the color on the bottom of the box looks nude pink and doesn't match the bottle.
Then I purchased online "maci" another nude pink shade thinking the perla thing might've been a fluke. Nope it is also way off. It's also dark purple and not anything like what the website or box shows.
Very disappointing that I now have 2 purple shades and still no nude pink. And it's such a great lipstick other than that. It wears great, doesn't dry out my lips, stays all day, barely feels like I'm even wearing anything. I love the product I just wish they would fix whatever the issue is with these colors being so off.
Sheer Patina - Olive undertones
Marie from Philadelphia
Love this gem! I have brown hair, brown eyes, and olive/neutral undertones. Sheer Patina complements my look when I'm going for something more natural. It is super quick and easy to apply, adjust, and layer. I prefer it over the original Patina color because the original makes my lips appear dryer and more flakey (since it's bolder and more pigmented). Excited to try more colors!
I wore Rubino for my wedding and it is my favorite!
britbene from Detroit, MI
I had a hard time figuring out what I wanted to look like on my wedding day. After buying a few different shades I decided to go in to my local Ulta and ask for a second opinion. We agreed on the Rubino color and it was absolutely perfect! It stayed on all day and looked amazing in pictures. For reference I have black hair, brown eyes and light skin. I highly recommend these lipsticks!
Awesome stay on lipstick
smilie from Houston
Not as hydrating as I would like it to be but does stay on for awhile.
Did not stay on all day. Doesn't play well with chapstick.
ReneeE from So Cal
Does not stay on all day. Doesn't play well with chapstick.
Color Baci is way off
Eh. Pass. from Chicago, Il
Baci is supposed to be nude pink but it comes out a cool, purple color. It looks like I am oxygen deprived.
The overall texture and feel is lovely.
Changed the formula
Sam from San Diego
I LOVED this lipstick always my go to. When i purchased it recently I noticed it got clumpy after doing some research I noticed they changed the formula. Very disappointed
Beso is the perfect red Christmas color! :D
Eb from Springfield, OR
I really loved the Beso color! It's the right amount of red without it looking "too sexy" for a Christmas color. It did dry slightly different than when applied but wet will always look more moist than dry. I plan on buying all of the colors ASAP :)
I would buy this product again.
Boss from San Jose, Ca
I received so many compliments about this color. Strangers thing is that, the color you see through the bottle is not what it looks like on your lips. Excellent surprise!
Shorty from Santa Ana California
I bought the fiery red to use for Christmas and wanted something that would last and would stay. It's stays alright, in your napkin,cup,cheek, chin. It comes off everywhere and makes a horrible mess.
Ziji from Portland, Oregon
The woman who helped me was nicet, but I was only allowed to see the color on her hand, not mine. When I put it on it was an awful texture and wouldn't come off. Looked nothing like it did on her hand. I hate it.
Not true to color
Steph P. from Miami, FL
The images and descriptions on the website are not true to color. The color on the box is also quite different than the actual color. It's more of a dark purple shade than a nude pink. Very disappointing. I wish Stila would bring back caramello and riccio.
Does not stay on!
Does not stay on from Gilbert
I lover the color! The only problem is it does NOT stay on all day !
Best I've Tried!
Betha from California
This is, hands down, the best matte liquid lip I've tried. I haven't tried the KVD or Too Faced ones, but this is so smooth on my lips! And it doesn't feel like I even have anything on.
Flora from Alabama
NOT long lasting
camilav from San Diego
it doesn't "stay all day" at all. it transfers to the mask and rubs off completely when eating or drinking.
the color beso is beautiful though and the texture feels light
Thumbs up for formula. Thumbs down for color.
Color description is way off. from Chi-Town
I ordered this online. I've had it before and love the formula. It really does stay put for a long time. I wanted a more muted color just for work zoom calls so I ordered Parma with the description "peachy pink". There is nothing peach or pink about this color. It is more a deep mauve/red. I was incredibly disappointed how way off this color is. I even thought when I opened it that they HAD to have sent me the wrong color (nope). They really need to add actual pictures of people wearing this to the product listing on the site to give a better idea of how the color looks.
THEY CHANGED THEIR FORMULA!
Casey from North Carolina
SO devastated. I have been purchasing Stila lipstick for 3 years now. I always buy "perla." A week ago I bought it and noticed the color was purple now instead of pink. I checked all my past receipts from Ulta, thinking I may have purchased the wrong one. I went into Ulta and explained to them the situation..we looked at another tube of it on the shelf, and it was the exact same purple tint. They changed their formula 😕 Stila lost a life-long customer. Will not buy from them again unless they change the color back to its original one!
Jewelsglam from Bay Area ca
Does not dry at all have had mine for over a year still nice and creamy at application
No Staying Power
Aka.Nonni from NC
This is no better than any cheap lipgloss. Has no staying power whatsoever. Way to expensive for what it is. A cheaper better alternative is Milani Amore Satin Matte.
User123 from USA
The lipstick was so dry and cracks, the color also looked nothing like the picture.
I am considering buying another color
C from Washington DC
If you apply on dry lips and don't put lip balm over, this stays... with food, under masks, etc. My first test I wore for maybe 8 hours with no balm involved. For the most part even if I put it on over balm it doesn't smudge but it also doesn't stay as well for more than maybe... four hours? If I add balm later after it sets it stays longer than if I apply balm before this. It is not particularly moisturizing (hence my experiments with balm). The one smudge incident involved balm beforehand and a LONG mask day with food. BUT. I wanted a good color for me that would stay under a mask and wasn't sure super moisturizing was an option; and I don't find this drying in and of itself. It's more that I previously preferred very moisturizing lipsticks and during COVID I use balm at home ALL THE TIME. I got Rubino which is a nice slightly goth dark brick red that works for me. For reference in the beforetimes I used Face Stockholm Cranberry and Smith and Cult Demon Dazed - neither a true red. I have neutral/yellow undertones and relatively fair skin, hazel eyes. I am considering purchasing another lighter color as well.
Eighties from Wheat Ridge CO
I prefer Stila brand as it long-lasting color
Fiery is the best classic red!!!
Yazberry from Van nuys, ca
I gave the lipstick three starts because I love it but there's issues too.
I bought Fiery, it's a red, it's the best color red I have ever purchased!!!💋BUT, it doesn't have the greatest staying power, when I eat it completely comes off. It is a little drying but it's not terrible. I accidentally ordered two of the fiery red but I love the color so much I'm keeping both:)
Not true to the color
Rebeccaof2 from Maine
I ordered a nude pink and it was purple! So disappointed. Threw it away after one use!
