5 stars out of 5

Stila shoots and scores again with the introduce of Shine Fever Lip Vinyl! Stila Shine Fever Lip Vinyl ($24) is a new, permanent range of glossy liquid lipsticks available in 14 shade selections that launched for Spring 2020. Stila Beauty Boss Lip Gloss launched last Spring and at best I thought they’d do some new shades for Spring 2020 but nope, they went all in and launched an entirely different lip product that’s bloody fabulous! I’m happy that Spring is bringing so many shiny lip options because I’m all about doing away with the endless mattes that have been on trend for literally ages now.

Stila really perfected this formula. The pigment it outstanding, the wear is long, and the shine is fabulous! I picked up one shade so far but I’m sure I’ll be back for more.

Here’s my review, swatches, and thoughts on the new Shine Fever Lip Vinyl formula!

Stila Shine Fever Lip Vinyl arrives in a chubby gold barrel with a clear window displaying the color which holds 0.18 oz of product for $24. The packaging matches up with the new Hide & Chic Fluid Foundation and Pixel Perfect Concealer. It’s quite classy.

I’ve tried several hundred products that promise me a vinyl or lacquer-like finish and have failed miserably but Stila Shine Fever Lip Vinyl gets the finish down perfectly. This produces heavily shine, super glossiness, and an absolute perfect lacquer finish! YES YES YES! I am so pleased with the finish! Not only does it have incredible shiny but it has super pigmentation with vivid, strong color. I selected the shade Hot Pursuit which is a stunning red.

And the add even further awesomeness to this review the formula is also brilliant. This formula is highly moisturizing thanks to Argan Oil in the mix. It has a thin texture that’s lightweight and applies easily on my dry lips without accentuating dryness. The finish is like a smooth, calm lake! Perfect, shiny, and smooth. With it having so much pigment you’d think it would be super heavy but it’s very lightweight and it feels very hydrating on my lips. I did have a little bit of an issue with it migrating on my top lip line but a little clear lip liner kept it locked into place. The wear was quite well for me and lasted about five hours while retaining a good deal of shine and it did leave a staining effect behind when it wore away completely. It does have a strong flavor and fragrance which was very pleasant! It tasted like some sort of fruity vanilla bubblegum! I liked it but sensitive users might not love it.

Nordstrom Ulta Macy’s Stila

Stila Shine Fever Lip Vinyl is a new permanent liquid lipstick with a glossy finish. This is a thin texture with that has a slick, slippery feel and a hydrating formula that feels divine on lips. It’s pigmented, super glossy, and wears for five hours and leaves a stain behind after the shine wears off. I loved it! I thought it was a refreshing change from matte lipsticks that are so popular and the vinyl promise is spot on as the glossiness is absolutely perfect! Although the shine does not mean they skimp on pigment as there’s plenty of that as well! The lipstick does have a fruity bubblegum-like flavor that was very pleasant but deserves mentioning for sensitive users! All in all, another excellent lip pick from Stila!


  • Shiny, moisturizing, pigmented.
  • Smooth, glass-like finish.


  • Flavored and fragrance.

    I was waiting to hear what you thought about them, I’m sold! What a gorgeous color on you. And I love the packaging.

    Red looks amazing on you. I’m curious about the formulation. How does it compare to the YSL Glossy Stain or Lancôme L’absolu Lacquer in terms of these two kind of set on the lips and doesn’t move?
