All About Lips Stay All Day® Liquid Lipstick Vault
Rated 5 out of 5 by BreeLee from Great price! Awesome set. Although the other review states this is a poor value for the set it's actually an amazing deal. Each colour is 1.5mL which is half the the size of a full size tube (3mL). So what you're actually getting is a $174 value (12 minis = 6 full size x $29) for $85. Make sure to pair it with a 20x and you're set. These vaults and gift sets are a great way to check out the colors. The staying power of these is amazing, like stated in the other review you might need to reapply after eating something greasy but still won't look terrible if you don't!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lyzz19 from Great product; questionable value. I will preface this review by admitting I used my Optimum points to treat myself to this set, because I'm not sure I would pay full price regularly. Do the math: a regular Stila Liquid Lipstick is 8 ml and costs $29. These "deluxe sized" are 1.5 ml each (which is stated nowhere on the Shoppers site, but I already knew it because I checked out this set on Stila's website where they have more information) so in this set you are getting the equivalent of 2.25 full-sized liquid lipsticks, which *should* only cost $65.25. It would be really nice if they made it similar to other miniature sets I've purchased on Beauty Boutique - try out the minis and cash in a certificate for one full-size of your favourite. That would make very good value! With this set, you're basically paying an extra $20 for the privilege of being able to try out so many different shades and not shelling out for the full-sized versions. Oh well. On to the product itself - it's funny because I had never been a huge fan of matte lipsticks until I discovered Stila Stay All Day lipsticks a couple years back, when I wanted a bold red for a wedding but didn't want to have to reapply (I used Beso). It's amazing! It really stays all day - you *might* have to reapply after eating, especially something greasy, but even then there's still enough colour left that it doesn't look super messy. It doesn't feel drying, and this is coming from someone who is addicted to lip balm. On that note, it definitely doesn't rub off if you wear it on its own. If you wear a balm under or over as a topper, it will rub off on things, obviously, because of the oils. I did that last weekend, and even so, most of the colour still stays. So I think the reason I fell for these despite them being matte is because of the awesome staying power. But this set has mattes, sheers, and shimmers! Yay! Three of the shades included in this set, I have the full-sized versions of already. I did have a bad experience with a shade last year and ended up returning it - Paradiso, it was a dark plum - it was so dark it looked patchy unless you put a lot on until the point it was so thick that it flaked off. So I was worried about the dark shades in this set for that reason. Granted, I haven't given them all a full test-drive yet since I've had the set about a week, however, I have swiped all of them on my lips just to try, and they all seem to go on smoothly and evenly! It's especially nice to have a darker sheer shade, because it's *supposed* to look a bit see-through. Even the bright pink shade, which I would normally never wear, still looks pretty good! I'm sure all 12 will get good use. It is very cool to have so many shades to alternate, and what's nice about the minis is that I'll probably manage to use a whole tube before it has a chance to dry out. (That having been said, I do have a full-sized one I've had for a couple years, even though it has a 12month stamp, and it's still good!) If you don't mind the price, this is a very good set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LyzzAgain from I Stand Corrected After reading BreeLee's review I went back and looked at my full-size Stilas - YES they're 3 ml, not 8. Lol. Oops. I figured out why I had thought they were - I have some Lancome Lacquers that are 8ml, in similar sized tubes, so I clearly confused the two. Please disregard my completely incorrect math from my previous review (I can't edit it or I would). Now I literally have nothing negative left to say - this is a great set!
