I'm a bit so-so with lipgloss, though. I hate the sticky feeling some glosses give, and as I have quite full lips I'm always wary of looking like a blow up doll. So, I avoid glosses that are overly gittery and shiny (which sounds odd, as it's pretty obvious a lip gloss is going to be shiny), but you know what I mean, right?
Anyway, Stila's Lip Glazes fit the bill perfectly for me. I got a set for Christmas with three shades in and they are so wearable that I've had all three in my handbag ever since.
Kaleidoscope is a pale shimmery almost-peach shade that put me in mind of holidays. It's really subtle on it's own but I've also tried layering it over a couple of my favourite lippies and it's given them a lovely sheen (without being too shiny, IYSWIM).
Amaretto is the very definition of a nude lipgloss, with just the right amount of pigment to give a warm glow to lips. I love the staying power of these - I wore this one for work and didn't need to touch up until I ate.
Passion fruit is the perfect natural pink which gives a really pretty, flushed look. I think this in my favourite of the three, as I'm having a bit of a pink moment, and this is subtle enough to wear during the day.

The glazes come in masses of colours at £15 each and there are also several trio sets available at around £12, which for three glosses is a brilliant price, I think.
