I love lip gloss. This isn’t new to anyone. I especially love Lip Glazes from Stila. My first high-end brand purchase was a Stila Lip Glaze in Grape, which is sadly long discontinued. I have a lot of Lip Glazes so I try not to buy new ones unless I’ve used up one I already have but because these suckers seem to last for ages, that doesn’t happen very often. When the brand releases a set of glosses, I’m always tempted to buy it. I want all the glosses. Huzzah! However, when it came to the sets from their spring collection, I settled on just one, Spring Fling.
And though I was smitten with both sets of their mini-Lip Glazes for Spring I settled on only one, Spring Fling, the one with colors unlike what I already have in my collection. The other set, Spring Break is lovely but the colors are too similar to ones I have already. Each set comes with three mini-glosses, each one with 0.05 ounces versus the 0.08 ounces of the full size glosses. Included in the Spring Fling set are Fairy Dust, Pink Sugar, and Rock Candy. All three glosses have a soft and very “spring” purple tint, while the Spring Break set includes brighter, more fruit-inspired colors.
Stila’s Spring Fling Lip Glaze Set is $15 USD and available from Stila and wherever Stila products are sold.
From top to bottom are Fairy Dust, Pink Sugar, Rock Candy.
Fairy Dust is a sheer and pale purple pink with pink and gold shimmer, and a peach scent/taste. Pink Sugar is a translucent magenta with micro-fine pink and blue violet shimmer, and a Swedish Fish scent/taste. Rock Candy is cool-tone violet with a strong purple hue and silver shimmer, and a candied berry scent/taste. As with a lot of Stila’s Lip Glazes, these colors are quite sheer. In fact, Fairy Dust leaves my lips with little color but a good amount of sparkle. Pink Sugar is also sheer but has enough color that it enhances my natural lip color nicely. Rock Candy, the most pigmented of the three, gives my lips a pretty deepens my natural lip color, with a pretty violet tint and oodles of sparkle.
Stila Lip Glazes are a lot less sticky than they were originally but they are still slightly tacky. I realize a lot of folks dislike sticky glosses of any degree but I don’t mind them. It’s that “stick” that keeps them on my lips. The glosses are smooth and so very tasty but they do tend to dry out my lips a bit.
Have you bought either of Stila’s spring Lip Glaze sets? Love them? Hate them? Let me know by leaving a comment!
