Stila’s Sparkle Luxe Gloss collection

These were introduced in spring 2012…and were headed out the door almost as quickly. When I found several in the Last chance section, I bought a few, then a few more. And I kind of assumed that these had been part of the line for a while. They’re a bit like the diamond Buxoms, in that they’re a semisheer gloss with a lot of sparkle. They cost a bit more (at regular retail price - which I never paid) and they’re more pigmented, which is nice. The tubes are glass, and seem…flimsier than the Buxom tubes. This could be complete misapprehension on my part; but I never worry about the Buxom tubes breaking if I pitch them in my purse or backpack. These…these, I worry. They also don’t have the flared bottom, so they don’t stay standing quite as easily.

This collection contained:

  • Bling — semisheer coral with blue and silver sparkle
  • Dazzling — semisheer fuchsia-red with blue sparkle
  • Fairy Dust — semisheer apricot with gold and blue sparkle
  • Tiara — semisheer lavender-pink with gold sparkle

According to Zappos, there were also two other colors in this collection - Ecstacy and Euphoria, both darker, almost vampy reds. I haven't tried to buy them because 1) darker reds; and 2) they're the full price. I got the ones that I did, at $10. And while I like them, I don't know if the combination of vampy red plus sparkle would be something that I'd wear all that often. Dazzled is almost too dark for me!! (Then again, maybe I should try it. Purely for experimental purposes. And in the interest of being thorough. Yeah, that's it.)
