      Great gloss but shop around for the best deal

      I purchased this Stila Lip Shine in a little haul I did from Direct Cosmetics a couple of weeks ago. I have used it a few time since and thought I would share my thoughts on it.

      The lip gloss comes in a tube style packaging which needs to be gently squeezed in order to release the product. The tube itself is easy to squeeze but it is not so squidgy that you end up squeezing it too hard ending up in a glossy nightmare. I have used squeezy lip glosses in the past but this one is different in that it has a brush applicator on the end. The product is released through the brushes which then allows you to glide it over your lips. 

      I do like the applicator as it allows for an even application and I have found that it leaves less to waste. If you do accidentally squeeze out too much product the brush wipes clean easily. I was worried that after a while the brush applicator might go hard and horrible but I have had no issues with it.

      So what is the lip gloss actually like?  I chose shade number 12 'Violet Shine'. From the swatch online I thought this would be more of a colour based lip gloss, in my mind I had pictured a pinky-purple shade. However when applied to the lips it is more of a clear gloss with pink undertones. I like the colour as it looks quite natural, it's just not what I was expecting!

       The gloss doesn't feel at all sticky and leaves your lips looking moisturised for quite a long time, I have used it and my lips have looked hydrated for a couple of hours after applying. It also looks great applied over a lipstick and does not look layered as it is quite a light but effective gloss.

      As I mentioned I got this from Direct Cosmetics so didn't pay the full price. The RRP for this gloss is £12 whereas I paid just £1.79. This is a great saving and I do really like this gloss. However, would I pay £12 for it? Probably not. I don't think I would pay more than £5 for it but for £1.79 it is a fantastic gloss.
