If there is one product that I absolutely love it has to be Lipsticks. I am a lipstick lover as hey can really change the look and make the face fresh and vibrant. Few months back I picked two lip colors from Sephora from the brand Stila which says Stila After Glow Lip Color. I got really curious to know about these, the SA told me that these lip color glows in dark light and UV light due to the presence of fluorsocent pigments. I picked up two shades Tangerine Dream and Electric Pink.

Packaging:- Stila After Glow lip colors comes in black retractable jumbo crayon packaging like Revlon Crayons or Clinique Jumbo Sticks. The name of the shade is engraved on the crayon and it is written with the same shade the stick belongs to so you can easily makeout which shade it is. Pigmentation:- These are not heavily pigmented like other lip crayons available in market, you really need 2-3 swipes for some good color. The color is buildable so you can wear it sheer or full on color, I mean whatever way you like. Texture:- I am quite surprise by this as when I swatched this shades on the counter they looked very creamy but when I applied it on the lips Tangerine Dream felt very soft and smooth on the lips wherein Electric Pink felt litle dry on the lips which is very strange. Electric Pink somehow looked blotchy on the lips whereas Tangerine Dream looked very nice.

Shades:- Tangerine Dream:- It is a bright orange shade which looks very pretty on all skin tones Electric Pink:- As the name says its a hot pink shade which will look good on fair to medium skin tones. Electric Pink looks like a Dupe of MAC Candy Yum Yum. Correct me if I am wrong.
Finish:- Glossy Scent:- I did not feel any scent to it. These seem to be fragrance free. Wear Time:- These stays for nearly 4-5 hours with mild snacking in between. They leave behind a stain.
