Stila's Lip Glazes have always captured my eye in the store, mainly because of the wide range of color choices and their twist up application, but I never got around to trying them out--until now. In my last trip to Sephora I was marveled by all the limited holiday gift sets..I just had to get one. The All is Bright set came adorably packaged with 8 lip glazes, 6 being limited edition colors. These were quite cheap too, only $25, which if you think about it, one lip color even in the drugstore can be $6 or more. I love the range of colors in this set, especially because they can be beautiful over all skin tones and work well with many looks. The colors jack frost (1st swatch--a little hard to see), jolly(4th), and splendor (6th) have the most visible shimmer. Out of these I actually really enjoy jack frost, as you can wear it over pretty much anything and it adds a pop or glitter to a boring look. The berry tones are perfect for fall and the black cherry (7th swatch) is warm for the holiday season. There are a few soft pinks which are good for everyday and could easily be added to Stila's permanent lip glaze collection. All of the colors are quite sheer, so you should use a similar base color if you want a more dramatic pop of color. I was scared of these glazes at first because as you know I HATE sticky lip gloss, but this was not too bad at all. The smell is not good or bad, it is a sweet tolerable smell though that really just smells like sweet lip gloss. This is a really great gift set to give to a daughter, sister, friend, or really any female you know who especially likes natural looking makeup. This was a really good first impression and a good set to add to my makeup collection from Stila. It is really a good value!
