Stila SPF 20 Shine Lip Color Review

Don’t you love when products combine SPF into the mix of things?

I’ve been very conscious of my skin lately and sun damage which makes me shop “smarter” for items that contain healthy amounts of SPF. I was pretty thrilled to see Stila combine SPF 20 with it’s Shine Lip Colors for it’s Summer Collection 2008.

Stila makes some great lipsticks, glosses, etc….and I’m currently in love with the Stila Shine Lip Colors. They are light weight, emollient, moisturizing, and pigmented! What more could a girl want?

I love a lipstick that not only combines the benefit of good solid color but also one that wears as if I have gloss on my lips, this being the case with this particular release of lip colors from Stila. The formula is a beautifully moisturizing lip color with plenty of good for you ingredients packed in plus SPF 20!

I think we all prefer lighter makeup in the Summer and these are the perfect solution for kissable, soft lips with a beautiful hint of color. Being beautiful and protecting my skin is always in style.

Although the collection is small, with only eight colors to choose from, I think that the line is a welcome addition to Stila’s Summer Collection. The colors I got are Sarah, a nude beige, and Anna, a beautiful sheer, pouting red!

Stila Shine Lip Colors with SPF 20 are most definately Muse Approved for purchase! I heart these!

Love ’em?

    Hi Izzy, the lipstick reminds me of the Dior Addict Lipstick.

    Seems like lipstick-gloss formulas comes in the same stick shape. Like MAC slimshine, Revlon shiny sheers etc.


  • MandyPandy

    Hmmm… I’m really liking ‘Sarah’. Dis-moi: is the formula of these lipsticks drying, emollient or neither?

  • the Muse

    hey gracie!

    It does sorta doesn’t it?

    Way better formula though. It’s glossy which is what I wanted for the Dior!

    I adore slimshines with a passion 🙂

  • the Muse

    hey mandy!

    not drying at all. Very emollient. It’s like wearing a glossy and a lipstick 😉

    It’s what I had hoped for the Dior High Shine but didn’t get 😛 blah!

    These are much better!

    Little pricey but worth it. I’ve always found that Stila does good lip stuff!

    I have been looking for a product for my lips that has high SPF and this seems quite good. The texture seems very creamy, yet sheer. Sarah shade is very beautiful. I use in summer eyecream with SPF and sunlotion for face with SPF (my favourite is Anessa) so this would be a nice product to protect my lips from the sun. I just have to wait it to come in webstores, I have seen the Summer Collection and it’s very golden. 😛

    hi jossu!

    I’ve been obsessed with SPF lately 🙂

    It’s a very lightweight glossy formula 🙂

    I use an eyecream with SPF too but I haven’t really had much success with moisturizers and SPF 🙂 Normally use a foundation with one in it 😉 but def need to buy some!

    The Summer Collection is very golden! The Kitten Eyewash kinda is a golden pink! I’ll be reviewing it soon!

  • Girl-Woman

    I am also obsessed with SPFs. My poor lips are in dire need of sun protection, though. I will give this a try. Thanks.

    hiya girl/woman!

    Me too! My lips are always chapping in the winter/summer so it’ll also help with keeping them nice and refresher 🙂

    Happy Weekend!
