Stila Electric Pink After Glow Lip Color – Swatch of the Day

Stila After Glow Lip Color Electric Pink

Stila recently released four After Glow lip color jumbo pencils; they’re neon by day, and glow under blacklight (I don’t own a blacklight to verify this, which is why this isn’t a full review).

Electric Pink is an eye-searingly bright pink. To my eyes (and on my monitor), this swatch is relatively color-accurate. It’s that bright!

Here it is on my lips; note that the product is meant to leave a long-lasting stain, and it does.

I don’t usually wear pinks on my lips, but when I do, I want them to be seriously bright, and this shade definitely fits the bill! However, I found that it clung to any dry patches on my lips – your lips need to be in really excellent condition for this to look good.

Stila Convertible Color Trio – Swatch of the Day

stila convertible color trio - warm

A little while ago, I redeemed some of my Birchbox points for this Stila Convertible Color Trio.  I feel sort of “meh” about it and have a backlog of more exciting products, so I don’t see myself doing a full review anytime soon – but since I couldn’t find swatches of all the shades when I was considering purchasing, I thought it would be a perfect Swatch of the Day post.

Here’s a closer look at the Convertible Color shades:

Cherry Blossom // Lillium // Peony

Per Birchbox, “Cherry Blossom is a bright girly pink, Lillium is a peachy pink, and Peony is a slighty darker rosy pink.”

I purchased my box by redeeming points from Birchbox.com – I pay for my own Birchbox, and one of the reasons why I like it is the points system; you can read more about my thoughts about Birchbox here.  This trio (which is labeled the warm trio; there’s also a cool trio) is also available with everyday free shipping from Nordstrom.com.
