Happy Sunday everyone, today I happened to stumble across two Stila vinyl lip glosses in two colours for just £3.99 each! I found them in the colours Merlot Vinyl and Terracotta Vinyl, one a deep berry red colour and the other a rosy brown colour. These glosses claim to stay on all day and contain deeply nourishing ingredients such as seaweed extract and green coffee oil.
The first colour I tried on was Terracotta Vinyl, it’s a lovely rosy brown colour which is subtle enough to be an everyday lip colour. The applicator wand is quite streamlined and makes putting on the product easy and it’s quite a thick gloss so a little can go a long way. It is pinker than I expected, with the rosy hints being more overbearing, and the shine is not too overbearing as you can see. The moisturising effects can definitely be felt, it’s not very drying although I imagine throughout the day it would lose its moisture. It’s almost like a lip stain as it is quite hard to get rid of, which is a plus, however not impossible to take off. I love this colour and it will definitely become a staple in my everyday face routine when my lips are feeling a bit dry. I’d give it a 7.5/10.
The second colour Merlot Vinyl is describe as a berry wine colour, i’ve been searching for a deep berry shade so was instantly drawn to this. I found it quite bizarre that when I tried to apply it came out quite purple, as you may be able to see from the wand, however after application it does translate as a deep wine colour. This colour is trickier to apply, due to the thickness it takes a lot of application to get an even coverage on the lips, and even then there are little spots darker or lighter than the rest which bugged me a little. However this is a lovely colour, under little lighting it’s very dark but in the light it’s a dark purple red colour. I’m waiting for an occasion to wear this, it’s a great accompaniment to dark clothes. However it doesn’t dry out and I fear it would smudge on the lips quite easily so would require extra care. I’d give this a 6.5/10
