If you say “Stila”, the first thing you (well, the first thing I think about) is the infamous Kitten. Attatch the phrase “lip glaze”? Vanilla springs to mind.
Product: Stila’s Vanilla lip glaze
The nitty gritty bits: Like all Stila glazes (with the exception of this one), this smells terrific. They’re all on the thick side, verging on “thicker than creamed clover honey in the winter when the heater’s been turned off by accident and I haven’t put it in my Typhoo tea yet”. And the stickiness is similar to the hard honey as well – sticky, but not annoyingly so. The stickiness is the tradeoff for staying power, as I’ve often said! The same review that I wrote for the Brown Sugar lip glaze applies.
The shade: Very sheer, which means it’s going to work on all skin types – seriously! All it’s going to be is shimmer and shine, with a tiny touch of nude. Your lips will shine through, but with a sheer gold glaze over them.
Seriously, I mean “tiny touch” and “sheer”. If I get an email about how I raved about this and there “wasn’t any piiiigmentttt!!” I. Will. Lose. It.
The Verdict? Stila has to be doing something right with these, because this is my third lip glaze! It’s mini (as was the raspberry), but that’s not because the product isn’t worth it – it’s because I know I’ll never use up an item! Still, though, it’s not worth the price, so buy it in a set or swap for it.
