Stila Lip Glaze - Maraca, Pinata & Kitten

I am really into lip products recently if you can tell.

I feel so OVER eye shadows and that gives me the space and freedom to play around with lip shades of my choice.

My latest love has been these gorgeous lip glosses or should I say 'glazes' by Stila. The shades I have are Maraca, Pinata and Kitten respectively and I just cant seem to hate anything about them.

They have the right amount of pigmentation and just the perfect consistency albeit some would find them overtly sticky. I like the fact that is glues onto the lips and stays put and if the stickiness helps in doing that, then it might as well.




Maraca is the most beautiful, dusky toned down medium pink with warm beige undertones to it. It is super opaque with absolutely no glitter or shimmer in it at all. It's very much like Chelsea Girls Lip Lacquer by NARS. Would look natural on fair toned girls and make a sexy pout on the tanned ladies out there.

Pinata is again a warm toned, reddish coral with tiny but abundant flecks of gold shimmer shot through it. This is my favourite without doubt as it comes in my comfort zone and gives cherry like lips that I usually opt for. A universally flattering shade, this one's a must try! It looks ordinary in the tube but is versatile.

Last but not the least, the cult favourite shade by Stila namely Kitten. An unoffensive and easy to wear champagne-bronze colour with very finely milled silver shimmer. I don't like how this looks on its own and would suggest wearing it on top of matte lipsticks to add some dimension and oomph as well as over pale, cool lip shades to warm it up.


The skimpy tubes look pricey for £15 each but considering that all the shades are equally opaque and long lasting, these Lip Glaze are well worth the money.

These Lip Glaze however are a part of the Fiesta Lip Glaze set that retails for £12 on Stila's UK website where they're currently offering free shipping so definitely check it out.
