Worst lip gloss to every exist. I have naturally dry flakey lips and this thing made everything worse! With the shimmer in this product, it highlights all of the fine lines and makes my lips look old. It's soo sticky and it doesn't even last long. It's so uncomfortable on the lips! And the pigmentation is not even that good! If your looking for a lip gloss to splurge on, try Nars or NYC (in the drugstore) makes my holy grail glosses. They are smooth, moisturizing and creamy and full of color. You can buy like 10 of those for the price of one of these!
I love this lip gloss! It looks reallly pretty on me (I have light/medium skin, blond hair, and blue eyes) and it smells and tastes really good. It's a little sticky when you first put it on but with in 2 minutes or so it's gone. This would have gotten five stars if it weren't for the packaging. I don't like the brush and when you twist the bottom to get it out, you have to keep twisting and twisting and you feel like you're wasting a lot of product. After a long time of twisting, a big glob of gloss comes up through the middle. I love this product but don't love the packaging
I feel like I am in the minority here, but this gloss didnít work for me at all. In fact, its looks horrible. I was just left with a bronze metallic sheen on my lips. Luckily, I got this as part of a kit and didnít pay the full price for it. I will not repurchase.
I love this lip glaze! Its so easy to put on and its not sticky at all! Its a great color for everyday and its flattering on lots of skin tones. Its a great gloss and I think everyone should try it
This is just an okay lip gloss for me. I got this in the Fiesta kit at Ulta for $7.99 along with Pinata and Maraca. First, the positive. I love the wey this lip gloss tastes. It tastes like sweet vanilla. I do not like fruity tasting glosses so this wins on taste. I also like that the stickiness of the gloss wears off after a while so your lips do not stay sticky forever (unlike MAC glosses that are ALWAYS sticky). The color is just okay on me. I have really fair skin and somewhat pigmented lips. My lips are naturally a pink color so I usually go for darker pink glosses. I am also used to more pigmented glosses like Lancome's color fever glosses. This gloss just gave me a slight wash of sparkly sheen. I didn't see the color in the tube on my lips. Now, the negative. I do not like the applicator. I have to twist and twist and feel like I am going to use the whole tube to get any product on my lips. The applicator (or packaging) is the worst thing about the gloss. I also don't like the sticky feeling I get at first, but that does eventually go away. I would only purchase this again if I got another great deal like I did this time... 3 glosses for $7.99.
I love kitten the eye shadow but I'm not a fan of kitten the lip glaze like I thought I would be. The formula is still good as other stila lip glaze.... sticky but not too sticky. Good smell and not a bad taste to me. It's the color I didn't like. It comes across as a frosty caramel color on my lips that did not look good. My lips are a little pigmented and its a tad sheer so maybe that didn't help. I don't know why it looked so bad because the eye shadow looks awsome and really brightenes my face. Glad this was in a kit and I didn't purchase on its own.
I LOVE this glaze! I have this in a mini I got in a set around Christmas and I will definitely be picking up a full size. It's an AWESOME golden-peach color with really pretty shimmers in it. It is sticky, but to me sticky glosses seem to last longer, and it doesn't really bother me. It has a really yummy vanilla smell/taste.
I like how it is a brush applicator but I feel like it's easy to waste product since it's a twist up kind of packaging.
I, too, had never tried Stila before, but am a HUGE fan of this glaze! Firstly, the smell is divine. Like honey? Vanilla? Not sure, but its delicious :) I was weary at first about the colour, because usually i steer clear of bronze and go for pinks, but it is truly flattering. I can imagine the shade working for almost anyone for any outfit. At first, i kept twisting and nothing came out :( But then a big glob surfaced at the tip. Had i know, i would have twisted a little more carefully :P
So i over-applied initially, and it seemed quite sticky, but after a few mins the shine and colour were AMAZING and the stickiness had gone away almost completely.
I can see why this is a cult classic. As for price, $22 US dollars seems fair to me, but at Mecca Cosmetica (our try-hard version of Sephora but way smaller) it retails for $48 AU dollars. Excuse me if i sound cheap, but HELLZ NO.
Wasting a $50 note on a tiny lip gloss? Uh, no. Thats disgusting and robbery on the highway. Not even the super-high Australian prices at the Benefit counters will charge that much for a Benefit gloss - and they're usually overpriced. I dont think Sephora or Stila website ship to Australia, but if anyone knows of a legitimate retailer that will ship here, let me know.
So all in all, at the US price, this is a great buy. Excellent formula, fantastic smell, gorgeous colour and long-lasting wear. Big fan.
Will absolutely repurchase at the US price and will recommend to anyone who'll listen ;)
This is the first time I've bought Stila cosmetics. They were having a sale and I purchase the Lip Glaze color set for about 20% of the original price. The real reason I purchase it was so that could get their signature "Kitten."
This is a sheer gloss with a peachy base with a peach-gold shimmer. So this gloss can work with those who has a peach or a golden undertone. The reason this happens to be a cult favorite is because it is very wearable and a perfect neutral.
The application is a pen form and all you do is twist the bottom to the right and the product come right out.
This works quite well with Black skin tones, I'm NC45 with yellow and orange undertones. This product was introduced to me by someone who is NW50 with peach undertones.
Lastly, this lip glaze and be heavy but it last several hours.
I love Stila glazes. The beautiful glossy look is so sexy that it's hard for me to dislike any of them, even if the color isn't something I'd normally care for. Unfortunately Kitten falls into that latter category... it's a bronzed, shimmery carmel-peach and would probably look fantastic on a tanned person. On me, it just looks eh. But I still wear it because the overall smooth texture and shine look great.
