Stila Lip Shine: 'Violet Shine'

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

 I chose shade number 12 ‘Violet Shine’. From the swatch online I thought this would be more of a colour based lip gloss. 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.

As I mentioned I got this from Direct Cosmetics so didn’t pay the full price, click here! 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.

Have you tried any Stila products?
