Stila Holiday 2009: Stila Lip Glaze Collection Review and Swatches

Since our economy tanked I’ve noticed I’m totally spoiled with spending less and getting more lately. The cosmetic deals in general are completely killer lately aren’t they? Everyone and their mum is packing up awesome steals and deals and slapping a super cheap price tag on it. The Muse finds herself looking at items and randomly shouting SOLD! really loudly when she sees a cool deal…ok, I don’t really shout it out loud but I’m normally very close to doing it.

This year Stila happens to give us more for less with it’s new Lip Glaze Collection for 2009. This is $25 bucks and includes 8 Stila Lip Glazes…can you say total cheapness?

Jump ahead for the deets!

Last year the Stila Lip Glaze Collection was $28 dollars and you got six mini Lip Glazes. This year Stila cuts the price plus gives you two more glosses. What more could a Muse want?

Loves it!

The glosses are 0.03oz in size and contain four best selling shades and four brand new shades. Personally the size of each gloss is plenty for multiply uses plus you’re getting a whole lot of variety for your buck. These have a click style applicator with a lip brush applicator for mess free application. Shades range in finish so you get a little of everything including mattes, shimmers, pearls, etc…..I’ve always been a bit Stila Lip Glaze fan and generally enjoy the formula. It’s not sticky, has a nice glossy sheen, and can be built up for sheer or heavier color pay off.

It’s inexpensive price tag, variety, and solid formula makes this year’s edition of the Stila Lip Glaze Collection a must have in my opinion.  $25 for 8 glosses?  Ok, I’ll take ’em!  Plus with Sephora Friends and Family right around the corner that’s $20 bucks for 8 glosses!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Oh, the Muse, when will the Sephora Friends and Family sale be?? I just so can’t wait….to get more Stila and other stuff as well!!

    • the Muse

      ummm from what I hear this week. October 16 it starts if I’m right? I’ll be doing a wish list posted with the dates etc 😀

  • Johanna

    I always have a tube of the Stila Blackberry on stock, but this set makes it affordable to try some of the other colors. Hope you’re enjoying Cali, Muse — we’re having great weather (as usual) here in San Diego.

    • the Muse

      Hi Johanna!
      I’m back hun 🙂 and yes indeed San Diego weather was wonderful!!!!!!!!!! Very warm! 😀 It’s def a great deal, particularly during Sephora FF hun!

  • Fresco Phyrra

    Ok, I know this is silly but Marmalade appeals to me merely because of the name. Cranberry is pretty.

    • the Muse

      LOL me too DD! That’s why we are such good mates 😀 hehe great minds!!!!

  • Jin

    OH MY. I love shades like Marmalade, Candy, Starfruit & Kitten! That’s 4 out of 8 that I’m pretty sure I’ll LOVE … does that mean I’ll buy it? XD Muse, you are such a bad influence. I already have so many lipglosses, but this looks like such a great deal! Shall just throw this in my growing KIV list XD

    I had a bad experience with click applicator though – no matter how many times I turned it, nothing came out. A week later when I tried turning it again, WHOOSH so much product came out & I wasted a lot T__T

    • the Muse

      hi jin!

      Me too 😀 LOL sorries 😀 heheh! I’m thinking during FF it’ll be an even better deal hun! YES! me too! During the Summer I got the 24k glosses and had a blasted time getting one to work! I had to toss it b/c it just refused to distribute product…I nearly cried!

  • pickledgreens

    Blackberry is my favorite color. I’m glad the set is different than last year’s, as they’ve been getting repetitive. Seems like a great deal. Are the shimmery glazes gritty?

    • the Muse

      agreed pickled! some sets are very receptive. oh no not at all thankfully. I get that with mac dazzlegloss a bit but not these!

  • jennifer

    I’m thinking of getting Stila’s lip glaze collection/Benefit’s Glitz, Glam & Gloss. Which do you recommend? Would you happen to have a picture of both to compare the sizes? I’m kinda hopeless at gauging 0.03oz.

    u can email me if u like. thanks!

  • Desiree Torres

    HELP LADIES!!! I just bought this off of ebay thinking it was new and after reading this just saw that t is from 2009 🙁 It was stated that the box set is new and unopened. Will it still be fresh for me to use if it hasn’t been opened??? Thank you SO much!
