Product Review: STILA Lippies

When Stila hit Manila, I was so thrilled because I have long been wanting to try their products. I originally wanted their blushes (what else is new, huh?) but their baked duo was OOS when I finally decided to buy one and the other blushes just doesn't appeal to me that much. But the lip glaze had so much raves so I decided to purchase one. And I ended up with my very first 2 Stila items - Lip Glaze in Starfruit and Lip Color in Pixie. :)






So I am going to post pictures and swatches as requested by the lovely Cha. :P On to the reviews then. :)

Stila Lip Glaze in Starfruit
- A lovely warm pinkish coral lip gloss with very fine golden sparkles (based on my observation)




Pros:
- Very pretty colour
- Can be worn alone on the lips and gives a very pretty pink gloss with very fine shimmer
- Lasting power's pretty decent
- Not so sticky (which may be a con for those who prefer glosses as sticky as MAC lipglass)
- Smells very fruity and yummy, not too overwhelming
- Locally available at Rustan's
- Not too shimmery and overly shiny

Cons:
- Color is gone in half an hour (on me)
- May be a little expensive for a lip gloss. Sells at PHP695 for 2.4mL of product.

Will I buy again? Yes! Not as sticky as MAC lipglass with a very yummy fruity scent. :)

Overall rating: 4/5 I would've given it a 5 if it contains more product and the color stays longer on the lips.

Stila Lip Color in Pixie
- A pretty nude pinkish-brown shade of lipstick.





Pros:
- Very pretty nude pink-brown color that is an MLBB
- Pigmented and lasting power is good
- Creamy
- Price is not bad for PHP595 with 3.7g of product which is way cheaper than MAC for PHP950 with 3g of product
- Locally available at Rustan's

Cons:
- Smells lipstick-y which I don't dig that much
- The case looks quite cheap (But it doesn't bother me that much since I am after the product)

Will I buy again? Yes! Quality is good and for the price, you can't go wrong! I only wish they have more colors to choose from. :)

Overall rating: 4.5/5 . Minus .5 for the scent



Look at how pretty the swatches are. :)


I hope this helps. :)


Have a great week, everyone. :
