Stila Putting On The Glitz - Review

It's time for a beauty bargain up in here, and this is one you'll want to snap up as quickly as possible before everyone else catches on.
The Stila Lip Glazes are pretty well known in the beauty industry with Victoria Beckham being just one of their celebrity advocates claiming that they're one of her beauty must haves. Perhaps it's the high shine formula or maybe that they're super thick and juicy? Either way, endorsement by the gorgeous Mrs Beckham is enough to get my interest, especially when at just £15 a pop, they're a bloody bargain.
Being a sucker for a set, I grabbed the Stila Putting On The Glitz Lip Glaze Set months ago, but have only just had the opportunity to try them all out. As you can set, the set includes 8 deluxe sizes of the famous Lip Glazes, a beautiful faux leather gold pot and a rather sweet little headband.
The colours included in the set, all in 1.5ml sizes are as follows:
  • Glamour - a lovely ruby shade
  • Gleam - a mauve shade
  • Glint - an icy pink
  • Glow - a champagne shade which would glam up any nude lip colour
  • Glitter - shimmery icy pink
  • Glimmer - a lovely apricot which is perfect for spring
  • Glisten - think sugarplum and you're not far off
  • Glory - a bold blackberry
All of the shades are surprisingly wearable given that there isn't a lot of colour payoff, as you'd expect the colours are all pretty sheer and pack a fair old bit of shimmer. You can also wear these over your favourite lipsticks to add a high shine finish. All of the Lip Glazes feature Stilas click pen which means they're ideal to fling in your handbag. Oh, and did I mention they smell AMAZING!
Oh, and lets not forget the headband which is beautiful and made by the cult US jewellery brand BaubleBar and is probably worth a fair old bit in its own right!

All in all, this was an absolute steal at only £13.75 from the Beauty Bay. Is 8 glosses excessive? Probably, but a girl can never have too many in my mind.

This would make a lovely gift for a girlfriend, or an extra special treat to self. I prefer the latter.

Have you used the Stila Lip Glazes before? What do you think?
