I finally tried a couple more of the Stila Lip Glazes I have, YAY!
My previous Stila Lip Glaze post was for Apricot, a mini Lip Glaze from the Gift of Glaze Set from Winter 2007.
Stila Gift of Glaze Mini Glaze Set (from left to right): Candy Cane, Grapefruit, Apricot, Nutmeg, Brown Sugar, and Vanilla.
By the way, a mini set like this one is a great way to sample several popular Stila Lip Glaze flavors. I was curious but wasn't going to drop $20 for one, so this was great fun in addition to getting 2 limited edition flavors (Candy Cane and Nutmeg). And plus I have a rather short attention span, so I actually prefer the mini sizes so I can use them up more quickly and move on to the next flavor. I'm horrible, I know. They come out with similar sets every holiday season I think, so try one out if you're interested in sampling!
This review is for the Vanilla from this set. It smells like vanilla, surprise surprise! But I must say, this one is a LOT less sticky than Apricot, so I wonder if the texture changes with each flavor? Gar...I hate inconsistencies!!! Anyhoo, it goes on a gold shimmery translucent nude color, pretty, but not my favorite. I prefer my glosses without any shimmers at all. If you're into that golden sunkist look, this would make an excellent gloss!
The next one is a -gasp- full size I actually bought!
Peach Cobbler: smells divinely sweet and peachy! The picture makes it look more pink, but it's actually is an orangey peach color that reminds me of a pumpkin (?!) because it looks a bit murky in the tube. No worries, it goes on a beautiful nude peach and brings out my natural lip color. My only complaint is that it is a just a touch opaque and I like my glosses more on the translucent side. This one is even less sticky than the Vanilla, and it is also a bit thinner in texture. It feels identical to Lancome Juicy Tubes and I like it a lot! This is the full size version, by the way, not a part of the mini set above.
