Stila Lip Glaze Review

Hey peeps~

So...after Christmas comes Boxing Day and come Boxing wallet suffers from an extreme attack of overspending...I'm not proud of this, but I do have a ton of cool goodies now that I can play with. I picked up some Stila lip glazes from Sephora since they were on sale (you already know I can't resist makeup that's good quality but cheap @w@) and now I have a review for you!

They came in two little packs of three. The blue one is called the Foliage set and the brown one is the Harvest set. Foliage contains slightly pinker colors while Harvest has browns and neutrals. They were 12 CAD each which is a bargain! A single full sized lip glaze (0.08 fl. oz) goes for 29 CAD; though mini, these sets give you 0.05 fl. oz which isn't too bad and is convenient for carrying around in your bag.

Harvest Set Colors: Vanilla, Orchard, Spice
Foliage Set Colors: Delicate, Loganberry, Fawn

So the pros of this product is that it has extremely good lasting power, pretty good pigmentation pay off, cute packaging, and doesn't feel too sticky on the lips. A lot of lip glosses (and most other lip products) wear off very easily and we find ourselves reapplying them the most often. This product will last through eating and drinking, but of course it's not going to stay put 100%. Other than that, it takes a very long time for the glaze to completely disappear from your mouth and smells lightly of cranberries (to me anyway!),Yum! Pigmentation is solid, you could wear it alone to give your lips some color or over a lipstick color for added shine and dimension. I've tried both methods and  in my opinion, it works better worn by itself.

Cons first I thought the applicator and turning clicker pen was a pretty good idea but when you first start to use this product, you have to turn the bottom knob a million times before any product is dispensed out the top! Even after that I find myself having trouble judging how much to turn to squeeze the right amount of lip glaze out. Maybe I'm just not used to it yet but so far, it's kind of a pain. I'm also worried that this product will run out really fast. With only 0.05 fl. oz, I'm not too sure how long I could use them for before they run dry, we'll have to see!

Would I recommend this product? It's pretty cute and looks nice on the lips. There might be better stuff out there that's easier to apply and lasts longer but if you're a Stila fan and haven't tried their lip glazes yet. Yoda would say: Try them you must!

Thanks for reading and ciao for now~! <3
