Stila Lip Glaze Set: Review

The following is a review of Stila Lip Glazes submitted by model Augustine York
Stila Lip Glaze 8 Piece Set
Most of the things I want for gifts are sexy lingerie and other really inappropriate items, so when my someday-mother-in-law asked me what I wanted for Christmas I had to scramble together a small list of things from Sephora. On Christmas day I found underneath my tree the Stila Lip Glaze Set.

The set contains eight lip glaze shades (Kitten, Guava, Grapefruit, Apricot, Seashell, Blush, Majesty, and Merry Merry) in "travel size" .05oz containers and is priced at $25—a steal considering that a buying one individual lip glaze will cost you $22 (though to be fair, the individual tubes are full size at .08oz). So this set is more of a sample, see-what-you-like-best thing, which is perfect for me as a model because I don't wear them every day—just on shoots—so I like having a range of shades to use.

The lip glazes each come in a tube with a brush attached, and they have a click/turn method of getting the product out which I'm not a huge fan of. It took a really long time turning the base of the applicator before any glaze came out, and when it finally did, it spurted out too much at once and I ended up with a little extra. Not ideal since there isn't a lot of product to begin with, but a little goes a long way with this lip glaze, so it's not a deal breaker for me given the low price of the set.

The smell and taste of the gloss is amazing—very fruity but not sickly sweet like some drugstore glosses. I think the term mouthwatering is appropriate. They look good too: I tried out a vibrant red "Merry Merry"—which is an exclusive holiday color—and was surprised at how much pigment was in it. It is certainly a step above drugstore lip gloss that claims to have color but is just lightly tinted. Application was easy: it slides right onto your lips in all its shiny, delicious goodness.

Overall, this set is a good value, but it's important to note that while Sephora is still selling this particular kit for $25, you can also buy a seven piece kit directly from Stila for $19.99 - you'll save $5 and still get a good range of shades. While I do like the set, I can't bring myself to pay full price for one individual glaze; so if you're looking for an introduction to Stila's products or just want a little diversity in your make-up kit, get this set and go to town with it!
