Stila Cosmetics and Glamour Magazine collaborated together to create a new Lip Glaze Trio – It’s Go Time. This trio is currently exclusively sold on brichbox.com. This month’s Birchbox was curated by Glamour and I got a full size Lip Glaze in Lights, one of the shades in the trio.
Lights is a sheer caramel color with hints of golden shimmer. It goes on very sheer, but you do see the shimmer when the light hits it. The gloss has a fruity candy scent to it, but it’s not flavored. The other colors in the trio include Camera, a pearly gold red, and Action, a golden berry shade.
Stila Lip Glazes are infused with vitamins A,C, and E, to help keep your pucker supple and hydrated.
Stila Lip Glaze $22
Avon recently launched their new Avon Glow line inspired by summer sun beauty. The collection features an array of bronzers, glosses, and eye liners. I wanted to try out the collection so I ordered the Avon Glow Lip Gloss in Coral. It’s a sheer gloss with lots of shine. It’s not sticky and feels smooth on my lips. It’s formulated with SPF 15 to help protect your lips from the sun. I would have liked to see more color; it’s so sheer that I think all four shades probably look the same! It also has a hint of shimmer which is barely visible. I had higher hopes for Avon Glow!
Avon Glow Lip Gloss .24 fl. oz.$7
Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Gloss in Citrus is a sheer neon orange. It’s a new shade that came out this spring. It’s bright orange in the tube, but goes on shiny and sheer. I enjoy wearing it alone and it also looks great over lipstick. My favorite combo is Citrus over Coral Pink Creamy Lip Color. The Citrus really plays up the coral color in Coral Pink making my lips look brighter. The applicator is nice and glides smoothly on my lips, this gloss has a light minty scent to it. I would have preferred a citrus scent to match its name, but that’s okay.
Here’s a look at what will be featured next week! Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
Essie’s latest collection Bikini so Teeny: off the shoulder, mojito madness, and fear or desire.
