Stila Elegant Emerald Lip Glaze Trio: Review

Tuesday, 28 July 2015


Hello Beauties! As the name of my blog would suggest, I'm fairly partial to a lipgloss or two, so when I saw this Stila Elegant Emerald Lip Glaze Trio in TK Maxx for only £6.99 I had to pick it up. 

The trio comes with 3 Lip Glazes (duh) all in peachy pink shades. I actually received one of the Stila Lip Glaze's in a shimmery peach shade one month inside a Birchbox and it's become one of my most worn lip glosses, so I knew I'd love the shades in the Elegant Emerald Trio - although I'm not sure why Stila chose that name for it, as none of them are Emerald shades in the slightest. The lip glosses are slightly smaller than the ones you can buy on their own, but they're still big enough to get a good few months wear out of before they go to makeup heaven. 

The Elegant Emerald Trio contains the shades Kaleidoscope, which is a gorgeous shimmery yet wearable peach colour; Apricot which is a gorgeous peachy colour with a slight shimmer running through; and Pout which is the more pink toned of the three. All are absolutely gorgeous shades and I really couldn't pick a favourite. I'm not usually one for shimmer lip glosses, however these ones seem to make the shimmer thing work and actually add a really nice plumping effect to your lips...and god knows I could do with a little lip plumper! The shades aren't super pigmented, which isn't something that bothers me, as if I was looking for pigmentation then I'd go for a lipstick or liquid lipstick, but it's just something to bear in mind if you're looking for something a little more pigmented. You can still see the colours of the gloss, but it's more of a sheer wash of colour rather than a full on look. 

The finish of these glosses won't be for everyone though. These glosses are a little on the sticky side, which is usually something I hate in a lipgloss, but again, these glosses just seem to make it work. They're not so sticky that it's uncomfortable or annoying, but they're just sticky enough to make the glosses really long lasting. Usually lipgloss slips off my lips straight away as I'm always licking my lips, but these glosses managed to stay in place for a good few hours without needing to be reapplied, which I think is pretty good going for a lipgloss. 

Overall, I love these lip glosses, they're super pretty and they're long lasting...what more could you want from a lipgloss. I'll definitely be picking up a few more of the Lip Glaze Trios as well, as I think they're a great way to try out a variety of different colours on a budget.

Lots of Love,
