Review: Stila Lip Glaze and Elf Dupe




Stila's Most Popular lip gloss is their Lip Glaze which comes in a wide variety of colors, and sweet flavors and scents to match every shade.  These glosses add a sheer punch of color to the lips, and are enriched with Sunflower Oil and Lanolin Oil to provide moisture.

I decided to pick up this Lip Glaze in the color Mocha from their Summer 2011 sorbet-inspired collection.  Stila describes this color as a Sheer Plum/Brown, but it looks more like a Peachy/Pink color on my lips.  I love this color, and I think it's great for an everyday look for work or school.  The gloss does go on sheer, but it can be built up to provide a more pigmented color.

Cons: I do find that this gloss lasts a long time on my lips, but that's probably because it's so STICKY. This is probably one of the most GOOEY lip glosses I've ever used, and it makes a mess in the tube. So if you don't like sticky glosses, this is definitely NOT for you.  This gloss also has a strong Coffee/Mocha scent that lingers as long as you have it on.  I personally don't mind the scent, but if you're sensitive to smells, it may annoy you.

This gloss can still be purchased at Sephora for $22.00, but if you're looking for a more budget-friendly option, Elf's Hypershine Gloss in the Color Berry Cherry is a great DUPE, and it's only $1.00.


Elf's Hypershine Gloss is infused infused with micro-mirror technology to reflect light. The color Berry Cherry looks like a Peachy/Pink shade on my lips, and is VERY similar to Stila's Mocha.  The Hypershine Gloss has good lasting power, and is NOT sticky.


Cons: This gloss does contain some Parabens and Mineral Oil, and it smells like Cherries, which I personally don't like.
