My take on Stila Lip Glaze in Persimmon:
Stila Lip Glazes come in several pretty shades. And I think I have almost all of them. Stila Lip Glaze in Persimmon is a gorgeous shade of orangey red. So, it is perfect for both day and evening wear. If you have been wanting to try orange or red shade, I think this is a perfect start in lip glosses. Generally, I love wearing lip glosses only in light shades, but this color makes me look so polished without people staring at my bright lips.
You can wear it with just an eyeliner as with traditional reds and also with an elaborate eye makeup. You will love how easily this color fits in every makeup look you aiming for. It has become my ‘go-to’ lip gloss for days when I need color on the lips but not anything over-the-top.
Texture: Stila Lip Glaze in Persimmon has a thick but smooth texture. It goes on evenly and does not look goopy at all. The lip glaze is definitely tacky, but not very sticky as with some of the lip glosses. The lip glaze has a hydrating feel and do not feel dry at all.
Pigmentation: This lip glaze has amazing pigmentation. You will not need a base to get the color on the lips. I wear it alone without any lipstick and love the color it gives in just a couple of swipes.
Staying Power: The lip glaze stays on me for an average of 3-4 hours. Even after it is gone, the lips feels moisturized. But, it will not survive a meal as with any other gloss.
Packaging: The lip glaze comes in a pen-style applicator. It is easy to use if you adhere to instructions completely. You need to twist it 10-15 times for the first time and then 2-3 times for subsequent applications. You twist it less or more and you will definitely find it difficult to use.
What I like about Stila Lip Glaze in Persimmon:
- Beautiful but not very bold shade of red.
- Gives an awesome sheen to the lips.
- Perfect for all makeup looks.
- Will suit all skintones.
- Smooth and even texture.
- Goes on without a fuss.
- Decent staying power.
- Gives immense moisture to the lips.
What I do not like about Stila Lip Glaze in Persimmon:
- Some may find the pen-style applicator difficult to use.
- Small quantity as compared to the price.
- Expensive for a lip gloss.
- Unavailability in India.
Stila Lip Glaze in Persimmon is a very gorgeous and wearable shade of red. Makes you look ready in a second. The lip glaze has amazing color payoff and is also very hydrating to the lips. It is an absolute buy for lip gloss lovers and red shade fanatics, alike. Though it is pricey for the quantity you get, I still love the lip glaze and have it in other shades as well. Highly recommended!!!
