I’ve had time to wear and test my new Stila Lip Glaze – it really hasn’t lost its appeal! No other brands seem to have managed to harness that milky undertone in the colours, and of course the colour palettes are right up my street. The gloss I got at the launch was Amaretto and never was there a more perfect shade for me. The Glazes don’t wear as long as say, Bobbi Brown, but I’m still pretty impressed because neither do they disappear after a nano-second like so many.
Stila has to get to grips somehow with the discount sites, which of course, is bad news for consumers, but good news for the longevity of the brand in the UK. I’m not quite sure how they can tackle the issue, but more controlled distribution seems inevitable. The Lip Glazes are £15 and are already available at www.escentual.com and also www.feelunique.com although I’ve spotted them for £9.99 at discount sites (not, I might add in the colours I wanted).
