stila lip glaze

Shade: Grapefruit 07
Overall Rating: 6.5/10

I’m not an avid lip-gloss wearer and this hasn’t changed me into one. These I believe are one of Stila’s most popular products, the twist dispenser and brush applicator  have made it a lot of people’s favourites but don’t appeal to me. Product gets stuck in the bristles of the plastic brush and if you don’t use this very often like me (if you like to switch lip glosses day to day or don’t wear gloss daily) the old gloss stays on the brush and starts to clot. The next time you use it you’ll have to deal with the  glob of  thickened old product before the new gloss pushes through.  This wastes product and if you can see in the first photo, there isn’t a lot of gloss to begin with.

The twist applicator pushes product out, good so that gloss doesn’t get stuck on the rims but I expect that its not going to be able to get that last bit out. With normal lip glosses you can put the tube in some hot water to melt the product off the sides so you can use it but I don’t think that method would work with this.  

The gloss itself is sheer, has a hint of shimmer after application and is pretty! Its a nice lip gloss, the packaging design makes it stand out from most, but this isn’t a HG for me. If you want to try out this kind of packaging there’s also E.L.F.’s Hypershine lip glosses that are $1 at Target in the US.

I agree with you about the Stila lip glazes. I'm not a big fan of gloss getting clot!

Thanks for this review! I have one of the ELF ones and I guess I don't mind the applicator much (especially since it was just a $1...heh).

I like gloss packaging like this. I always found stila to be a little sticky though, I'll definitely have to try out elf for a cheaper option. Cute colors too.
