Stila launched their Bohemian Renaissance Fall 2020 collection yesterday, including a brand-new product; the Stila Semi-Gloss Lip & Eye Paint. It’s only mid-July, and Stila are trying to tap into autumnal vibes which feels way too early, but beauty brands love to drop their seasonal collections early.
Stila Semi-Gloss Lip & Eye Paint
I’ve already featured the Stila Kaleidoscope Eye Shadow, which is a brand-new formula for the brand and is their iconic Kitten eyeshadow made over to be a multi-dimensional sparkly shade and it does look really pretty.
The Stila Semi-Gloss Lip & Eye Paint is a brand-new product for Stila, and it is available in five different shades. It’s currently exclusive to the Stila website, but the whole collection should reach Stila stockists very soon, and I’ll update this post once that happens.
“Stila’s highly-pigmented lip and eye gloss provides vivid, opaque hues on the eyes and the lips in one swipe. This blendable, buildable creamy formula layers well for a fully customizable look.” – Stila

I think these 2-in-1 glossy lip and eye paints sound cool in theory, but eye glosses are notorious for their awful creasing due to the oils within the formula. The photo above showing the model with the product on both her lips and eyes, shows how uneven it looks on her eyelids.
It’s a pretty enough gloss on her lips, but it’s not a product I’d want to try myself as eye glosses just aren’t practical. I like the mix of shades, but I’m not sure anyone’s going to want to wear these types of shades on their eyes? It’ll be interesting to see some real-life swatches so we can see what they truly look like on the eyes…
