Most Helpful Positive Review I have bought this again
I bought the trial three-pack Stila Liquid lipstick at Christmas just because it included the sheer Morello and that was the only way to get it then. I admit I have to be very careful with the application- too much can look heavy and the outline has to be done perfectly- so I use a lip brush to apply. It stays on for many hours- meals , workouts don't budge it. When it fades it fades evenly and still looks pretty. I love the color. I might add a tiny amount of lip balm but I find Stila to be the least drying of liquid lipstick.
Most Helpful Critical Review drying
I've worn tons of liquid lips and the concept of a sheer version seemed ideal as we transition into spring but honestly they are sticky and drying. I rather just dab a lipstick for a sheer applicatio n verses these. stila is a great company but they just didn't work for me.

Perfect Everyday Lip
Lucy from Charlottesville, Virginia
I'm blonde and fair skinned, and this color was the perfect pinkish/mauve nude for me. Light and long wearing, and didn't dry out.
D from Illinois
This product is so worth the money. Love the color sheer patina. I was looking for a color that would go with a lot and this one fits the bill.
I don't find it to be drying which is a plus. I did notice that it doesn't stay on as well as the Velvet Lip kits from Kyli.
With all of that being said I would purchase again and still recommend this product. I find that even with reapplying it doesn't clump or dry out your lips. Easy to remove.
Long lasting, every day color
Britt from Gilbert, AZ
Compared to the regular Stila LL colors, this one is my daily go-to. It's not as thick and the others and very subtle. I have found you can make the color stand out more, and last longer if you first go over your lips with your foundation a bit, then apply. So happy I found this color! The perfect mauve.

It gets dry and chalky.
Sassie from Auburn, AL
I love the stila liquid lipsticks and figured I should give this product a try. It's a great shade to wear some darker liner with and still have a super subtle but gorgeous lip color. I hope they expand this formula's shade range, because I will buy all of them. It looks so pretty and it so versatile, and is perfect with that 'no makeup makeup' look.

I love Stila, they have the best lipsticks and mascaras!!
ilovethisok from USA
I love this for everyday wear! The color is great. It lasts all day, through meals, 12 hour shifts, and even kissing. Super super comfortable on the lips. Not drying. And honestly not even that sheer.

I have used Patina for years and have always loved it. When I went to purchase a new tube, ulta only had the sheer patina. Bought it in Hope's it would be close to the regular color. Terrible...its splotchy, seems drier than my normal and wears off much quicker. I am terribly disappointed! Would not buy again and if I cant find the regular patina, I'll buy a different brand.

My go to lip gloss is Loreal infallible, but I figured I'd try this since I was wanting something a bit more lasting. Sheer Patina isn't actually "sheer" to me; it's a light dusty rose/mauve color, so it's a nice neutral/natural color. I wasn't sure about it being matte as I usually like my lip color with more gloss or shimmer, but this was a pleasant surprise. It stays true to color when you're wearing it, so no fading. I don't find it drying at all, but my lips seldom get dry anyway. As for removal, it comes off with a few swipes of a tissue, so no using a special remover for it. It does come off when you eat, but most lasting formulas do anyway. No big deal, just reapply when you're done eating. Overall, I'm really happy I tried this and I'd love to get some more in different colors. If you're not sure about the matte, just try it, you might become a fan like I did. As for the actual lasting power; I had it on for six hours before I took it off to eat. The color hadn't faded at all during that time, even though I had some lip licking in there. LOL Thanks Stila, I think I've found a new fave!
Savanna from Maryland
This is everything I dreamed of and more. Stila has been my favorite liquid lipstick line for years and years, but I never found my perfect nude that looked natural and not like I have a lot of lipstick on. This exceeded my expectations. I have light-medium skin with olive tones, and this is just a perfect way for me to add color to my lips day to day without looking like I've even tried. And it wears a long time too, but not as long as the regular (non-sheer) formulas.

I use this every day. LOVE the natural color. I need to add a moisturizing gloss over the dry finish.
SO EASY TO APPLY AND LOOK GOOD!!!!
I loved the color, but didn't like anything else about it
Jennifer from Pittsburgh, PA
I really wanted to like this, as I found THE perfect nude color I was looking for that is more brown than pink or peach. I bought it in Sheer Caramello. Unfortunately, it was difficult to apply evenly as it's rather liquidy to start and as I pressed my lips together to spread it out it makes the color spread and create a line of color that I then I had to dab to get rid of. Then, it dries and is very drying on the lips, and somewhat sticky. It didn't last very long even though I wasn't eating or drinking, just talking. So I will return this. I only hope I can find a similar shade in a more moisturizing version.

This is definitely being returned.
Okay, this lipstick is NOT sheer!
North Shore Ulta fan from IL
SHEER should not appear in the description of this Stila product. It's MATTE, opaque finish is not so cute. I am gonna try to layer it w/other darker colors and a little lip moisturizer in order to keep from throwing it in the garbage. :(
Lots to like
crissyb from Indiana
Good staying power and doesn't dry out my lips at all, actually feels quite nice.
I need more colors now.
Great nude for fair skin
Gretchen from PA
Absolutely LOVE the colour, but it is quite sheer. It did last pretty long, but LA Splash lasts longer on me. It is an excellent true nude that I probably will repurchase, but only on sale. The price is a bit steep for my personal taste.
Like the product, not the color
Chelle from KY
This was first time trying the Stila lipstick. Overall an okay product, very liquidy at first but drys quickly. I thought this color was going to have a nude undertone but it didn't, it's a very bright soft pink. It did stay on all day.
New go to!
Tori from FL
I wasn't sure about this lipstick when I ordered it online, but it was on sale so I figured I'd give it a go because I love the original opaque Stila lipsticks. I was very pleasantly surprised! I was worried it would be runny, but it glides on smoothly and dries to a matte finish that stays on my lips without drying them out. It doesn't feel as thick as the original lipsticks, which makes them great for every day whe I don't want to worry about touching up. Even if I don't reapply throughout the day, it wears down evenly so it doesn't leave patches. I bought Sheer Patina and it looks very nice and natural with my skin tone. I was worried it would be too cool for my skin and make me look dead but it's perfect! I am Desert Beige in EL Double Wear.
I returned this product
Makeupjunkie from Oregon
I thought by the name of this product I would be purchasing something I would wear everyday that was sheer, non drying, and more natural looking. Sometimes you think its gonna be great because its prestige....but no, just another matte lip product my lips dont need. I was totally expecting a more sheer product without the total matte finish. I returned this the very next day.
Kayla the consumer from St. Paul, MN
I wasn't a fan. Nothing stood out as great when I tried this. Color was nice but it was sticky and it wore off fast. I returned it the next day.
It was okay..
