Stila’s Lip Enamel Luxe Gloss ($22.00 each) is new for fall, and they are simply amazing. Six shades of patent-leather, ultra-glossy opaque lipgloss? I’m so there. I’ve only tried three of the six, and they’re all stunning. The gloss is fairly thick, but I didn’t experience any tackiness really–these feel like lip lacquers or liquid lipstick more or less.¬† These glosses will be available September 2009, but you might see them pop up on earlier if you keep your fingers crossed.

  • Joy is a deep red-burgundy, but it’s actually subdued a bit. It’s not a scarlet red, but it’s still noticeably red. This one had the best finish, pay off, and overall look from the three I tried. It was thick, luxe, and covered in one coat.
  • Giggle is a hot fuchsia pink. There is *no* room for shyness with this one. You wear it and ROCK IT! I don’t know if I’ve ever come across a brighter pink lipgloss in my life. Extremely pigmented, bright as can be, and super glossy.
  • Happiness is a softer, more medium pink. This one felt the sheerest of the three I tried, though it was still mostly opaque, giving my lips a good dose of color.

    Could Happiness be a dupe for Partial to Pink? :)

    Giggle reminds me of OCC’s Pageant. I actually really dislike Joy… it doesn’t look like it would be a flattering colour on anybody really.

  15. Natalie

    Heeeeeello! These look fantastic. Now I am torn between these and Illamasqua gloss. Wish I had a million bucks ūüėÄ

    I find them beautiful in the tube, very nice when swatched on the arm but the rendering on the lips is not gracious at all. Very messy. Too bad cause Giggle is pretty.

  17. Redhead (hi)

    These look kinda like OCC Lip Tars in their pigmentation/gloss. I’d rather have the Lip Tars…

    • They have a different texture/feel — these don’t dry down like a lipstick like OCC does if you put on a normal layer. These are also WAY WAY glossy, IMO!

  18. WOW. I want these. Too bad they’re $22 each!

  19. Heather

    Wow those look amazing!!!

  20. Giggle kinda reminds me of one of the OCC lip tars

  21. Patrice

    Finally it’s pigmented!!!! they’re all look nice.

  22. Ashley

    giggle looks awesome, i’m so excited!! i can never wear lipgloss because it’s never pigmented enough, and when i put it over lipstick it messes it up

  23. Cat
