REVIEW- Stila Plumping Lip Glaze - Melon Mint

Hey Hunnies!

So I've picked up a few Stila Lip Glazes in the last few months, thanks to Tk Maxx and I've been using them a lot so I thought I'd start doing some reviews on them now. 

First up is Melon Mint, which is a plumping Lip Glaze.

I like to think the colour is a pale coral, almost nude.

I don't think it plumps my lips exactly but I do get that minty tingle when I wear it for some time, It's not as bad as some other plumping lip glosses *I'm talking to you Soap and Glory* but more of a cool feeling. 

The applicator is a lovely, thick brush. You have to twist the end of the of the tube for it to release into the brush which I really like, although I have to watch that I don't twist too much!

The smell is...okay. It has this fresh, fruity scent whilst also having some mint to it. I haven't smelt anything like it in a lip product before so that's nice but I wouldn't say it's my favourite lip product fragrance either. 

What is great though is that the scent changes with most of the Stila Lip Glazes, I have a ginger one that I adore! So don't be put off with the fact that you might not like the smell of one because you may love another. 

I love the way the this looks on my lips, I lightens them and gives my a slight shimmer too. 

It has a quite thick consistency which took me some time to get used too.  

This Lip Glaze probably lasts me a few hours if I'm not eating or drinking but if I am then I like to re-apply soon after :-) 

If your in the UK you can buy Stila from a few places :- their website and also Asos.

Hope you have all had a great day :-)

  1. I'm so glad you included a swatch on the hand and lips! It makes it so much easier to decide if the colour is for you or not :)

    I'm kind of weird and I love the tingly feeling :P It just feels like its working haha

    1. No problem hun!

      I like it too but not too strong that it makes your lips sting hehe
