The GIRL Lip Stylo formula is supposed to have “modern color with luxurious hydration for a lustrous finish,” while the brand founder is quoted (on Sephora) stating, “I can build as much–or as little–color as I like.” I would describe the coverage semi-opaque and buildable, which seemed to fit the brand’s description. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and lightweight, but the color still adhered well to the lips (three to five hours, depending on the shade).
I definitely felt like I could apply a little here, a little there, and then spread the color out by pressing my lips together for sheerer coverage, or I could apply a single layer and get semi-opaque coverage fairly easily. The formula was incredibly comfortable to wear: lightweight, hydrating, and smoothing. Some balm-like formulas that have more coverage can sit in lip lines, but I felt like these filled them and made them look softer. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.
The average rating based on all reviewed shade(s) in this formula is shown below.
Precision color meets luxurious hydration. GIRL Lip Stylo features the color intensity of a lipstick fused with a luxurious blend of shea butter, jojoba, mimosa and sunflower seed for softer, fuller lips. The silky formula glides across lips for a second-skin feel with a lustrous finish.

Beautiful rosy pink colour but I'm not impressed by the six month use by date. These definitely are prone to rancidity, probably due to all the plant waxes and oils. I bought over half a dozen when they were released and while they're all still useable, some have developed a Crayola like smell and an unpleasantly heavy texture. Activist isn't one of them, so far but I think it's best to buy these one at a time so you can use them up before they go off. Nice packaging but the the caps often don't snap shut completely - they sort of half snap shut and you only realise later that it wasn't properly on.
