#NoBareLipsNovember Day Six: Stila BACI

 

I don’t know what it is about the lip product but I am firmly NOT a fan. First of all, I think this is an awful colour for me. It’s like a weird light purple/lilac mixed with a dusty rose. I feel as though this colour would be more suited to someone with an olive skin tone. I can’t tell if the colour is too light or what specifically I don’t like about it, it’s just not the colour for me. Also, the colour changes as it dries it starts off very light and then proceeds to get darker, i’ve shown the starting shade and the dried shade.

Let’s talk about the packaging, when pulling the wand out there’s no resistance/ the opening is too big so too much product comes out on the doe foot. Not only are you left wiping some of the product back into the tube but the product, because it’s so fluid, leaks out the tube around the seal. The smell is very strong, it smells of vanilla but almost in a chemically way.

Formula

The formula is very runny, it’s not hard to apply it’s just a matter of taking your time. The formula seems to just seal the lips, if you have dry skin it bushes that against your lips and it really isn’t as noticeable. The fluidity also allows the colour to reach all the cracks and creases of the lips so it’s a pretty uniform colour.
