Review: Stila Silk Shimmer Gloss in Kitten

This is a review of the Stila Silk Shimmer Gloss in Kitten. This was a gift from Sheila.


What it does: (from stilacosmetics.com)

Pure shimmer and glossy delight! The silk proteins make for smooth, moisture-rich wear, while ultra-fine pearl provides high shine and maximum comfort. Vitamins A, C, and E supply antioxidant protection for the healthiest lips. 

Price: $22  Wow, expensive!

Pros:

  • This is a very pretty lipgloss if you just want to add shimmer.
  • The brush applicator does not flay

Cons:

  • I felt that this lipgloss was drying on my lips. It is definitely not “moisture-rich” or “maximum comfort”.
  • As you can see from the swatch, this lipgloss is not pigmented, so apply this for the shimmer
  • This is a very thin lipgloss.  Look at the picture at the top – you can see all of the lipgloss at the bottom of the tube. Lipgloss usually sticks to the sides of the tube. 

Would I repurchase? No. The color is great, but I hated the feeling of dryness on my lips

I really wish I could have loved this lipgloss, but the formula just doesn’t work for me!

Hope you enjoyed this review!

xoxo, K

    This looks very similar to the Make Up For Ever Lab Shine Star Collection Lipgloss in color S2.  That one isn’t drying.  Super smooth and moisturizing!

    I usually find that Stila glosses are too sheer for  me, but then, I am more of a lipstick person!
