Stila Lip Glaze Set. Review and Swatches

So here is the promised review of the Stila Lip Glaze set which includes 8 colours  and which you can see on the photo:

This set contains:

4 New colours:

  1. plum fairy – a sheer plum with pink pearl
  2. candy – sheer pink-coral with subtle rainbow shimmer
  3. marmalade – sheer peach with pink and white pearl
  4. pinkle twinkle – sheer mid-tone pink with rainbow shimmer

and 4 Bestsellers:

  1. kitten – nude pink champagne shimmer with golden pearl
  2. starfruit – neutral pink-coral with white pearl
  3. cranberry – sheer brick red
  4. blackberry – deep purple wine

I am sorry that I am writing about this set only now but this is because I got it only several weeks ago. But no worries, I just checked out and it is still available. But if not, you can get the glosses separately.

The price is only $25 which is a great deal! Single lip glaze is $22, but I believe that you get a bigger gloss. So this is a great opportunity to try lots of differents shades.

Here you can see them all:

You can see that some glosses are opened and some are not yet. And I hope that you can see the brush.

Check out the swatches and why you should get (or don’t get) this set

These glosses are fruit scented ( I like Juicy Tubes more) and I find them a bit too sticky for my taste. I like more pigmented glosses while these don’t give you a lot of colour. I am not saying that you can’t see the difference in the colours but some of them look almost the same on the lips. Also I can’t say that Lip Glaze stays on  for a long time. I can’t say that I liked the brush very much, but this is just my personal opinion.

I did not open all the glosses yet but here are some swatches  & I hope you can see what I was talking about (colours are not pigmented and some are very similar)

marmalade,  plum fairy, kitten, blackberry

The conclusion?

I love having this set because I can never have enough of lip glosses  but I don’t think that I will be getting any other shades of this gloss since it did not become my favourite. But I know some people that like Lip Glaze a lot. And what about you? Do you love Lip Glaze or not really?

Stila is available from  Feel Unique and Sephora.

    I used to love them when they first came out and I was younger, then I moved on to more expensive, creamier formulas, and now I like them again. There’s something about the shine and packaging I really like. I like the shimmer in the new colors of this set, but I prefer the non-shimmer colors–more smooth on my lips. But what I miss are the old Lip Shines in the squeeze tube. The range of colors Stila had was superb, and those were creamy and came in a squeeze tube with a metal cap. Loved that it contained no brush or applicator.

    Hi tati
    Thank you for your opinion. I’ve never tried the glosses that you’ve mentioned.

    i’m very much a red-lipstick kind of a girl, although it’s so hard to find nice reds that stay smooth on my lips. i’ve always loved the stila lip glaze in cranberry as the color was perfect for me and it was a very pigmented gloss that kept my lips moist, and would then fade to a nice stain. however, i just bought myself a new one and have to say that i am very disappointed… they seem to have changed the formulation! story of my life. i know they must have changed it — not only is the scent different (somewhat tropical?), but the real problem is the fact that the gloss itself is much more sheer and less-pigmented. it just sort of looks like “nothing” on my lips, when it used to look like a perfect moist, albeit not-too-wet red. total bummer. once again, my search for the perfect red lipstick/gloss is on…
