Stila Stila bo bee-laaaaa! I’m so immature, y’all. But you already knew this, right? I don’t know who came up with the idea of being all mature and “appropriate” once you become an adult. Yeah no. Definitely not my philosophy. I’m going to be a kid forever. Weeeee! I’m also going to love Stila’s lip glazes forever too. These things will never stop being awesome to me.
I’ve actually hailed their lip glazes as one of the BEST lipglosses on the market. Yeah, I know. Pretty epic claim for a beauty blogger who has tried dozens and dozens of lipglosses. But lip glazes rock. And if you haven’t tried ‘em yet, this $12 set may peak your interest.
Ah haaa…do I have your attention now? What Stila’s website says about these babies…
“Inspired by the change of seasons and vibrant autumn colors, each Lip Glaze Trio contains an assortment of Stila’s most popular lip gloss in three gorgeous hues that will add a splash of color and glossy shine to lips. The Harvest Set features three exclusive shades to keep your lips glossy and polished with one click of Stila’s iconic pen.” (source)
If you’re going to wear a gloss, it needs to be one that lasts for more than an hour, ya dig? Stila’s lip glazes don’t disappoint as I find them to be pretty long-lasting. And don’t let the lip brush intimidate you.
For a while I wasn’t a fan of lip brushes because I found them to mess up lip looks that involve lipsticks and lipliners. The trick is to turn the knob at the bottom…
…get an ample amount and just blot the lips together. I don’t like using the brushes all over the lips. Instead, I put just a dollop in the middle of my lips and blot out the rest. If needed, I’ll use the brushes on the edges. The only time I’ll glide it all over my lips is when I’m wearing ONLY gloss. Pretty technical, uh?
Scent-wise, these are pleasant and subtle for fragrance haters like me. And when it comes to actual performance, well, I mean…it IS a Stila lip glaze.
(L-R) Vanilla, Orchard, Spice
Which means it’s all that and then some. These are some glossy babies and I love that the set has 3 different formulas.
Vanilla is a bit of a honey glitter bomb. It’s super glittery when worn alone so it’s probably best to wear it layered over any color lipstick.
Orchard is pink frost and I’ve never been a fan of how frost glosses look on me. They don’t always apply evenly and this shade isn’t so flattering on me.
Spice is my favorite because although it’s super sheer, it has a nice brown sugar hue to it. The shimmer is subtle and long-lasting.
Not bad for a set of glosses that round up to be $4 a pop, uh? The set is currently available online and if you’re a beauty budget shopper, I’m pretty sure you can find them at Nordstrom Rack, TJ Maxx, Marshall’s or Ross in the next season or so.
Any lovers of Stila’s lip glazes?
