Review: Styli-Style Plastique Hi-Shine Lipgloss
Today I bring you a review of something that probably should have a cult following, but doesn't. Styli-Style's eyeliners are super popular all over the internet (especially the 24/7 pencil liners not to be confused with Urban Decay's much pricier line). However, you usually don't hear all that much about their line of lip products.
Styli-Style's Plastique Hi-Shine lipglosses are awesome. They are only slightly sticky (not like MAC lipglasses that's for sure). They have that vanilla scent that MAC uses. They are moisturizing. They come in lots of colors and they are cheap! I bought discontinued packaging (the silver caps - on sale on their website from $3.99-$7.99) but they just came out with new black packaging ($7.49).
The stand out colors for me are:
Flirty: a creamy peachy pink, no shimmer at all, and of course as noted above, a very cheap and not quite as nasty smelling (!) NARS Turkish Delight dupe
Metro: a pink base with peach duo-chrome (NARS orgasm dupe?)
Mambo: a slightly more intense Metro with orange duo-chrome
Berry: Likely easily dupe-able but a very pretty cool berry with subtle shimmer
And of course, I love clear not horribly sticky lipglosses, especially if you have a ton of loose shadows (which of course I do). Mix clear (or Candy a very very light nearly clear pink with silver sparkle) with a light green pigment, get a cheaper version of MAC Spring Bean lustreglass. Mix either of the above with black pigment, get a much cheaper version of the black lipgloss trend and don't sacrifice a whole tube to be trendy!
So much fun. So underrated.
