The Website Says
Dazzle by day and glow by night. Stila’s blacklight responsive lip color contains florescent pigments that are three times brighter than conventional colors, creating a vibrant pop of color in the sunlight. Once the sun goes down, blacklight sensitive pigments cause the product to glow when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light.

Features & Benefits:

  • * Medium, buildable coverage with staining properties for lasting color
  • * Sunflower seed oil nourishes and moisturizes, while oat kernel extract soothes and calms the lips
  • * Algae extract helps retain moisture and contains antioxidant benefits
  • * Glycerin attracts water from the environment and the lower layers of the skin increasing hydration levels
  • * Natural blend of waxes deliver a creamy, easy-to-apply consistency
  • * Vitamins C & E provide antioxidant benefits
  • * Cherry flavored
  • * Cruelty-free

Now, you know I’m all about blacklights, things that glow in the dark, and UV Reactive Toys. So of course I had to put this to the test with my blacklights!

As a reminder, or in case you don’t know, blacklight reactive means it glows under blacklight. This means it will not it glow in the dark unless it’s near a blacklight. If you’re just outside in the dark, it’s not going to glow.

My Thoughts
From the first time I put Tangerine Dream on I couldn’t get over how moisturizing it felt! It’s easy to build up and it certainly does leave a stain behind! From a distance I thought my lips still had color hours after wearing, but upon closer inspection in a mirror I could see where I needed to touch up. The color itself is more on the glossy side that will eventually fade down into more of a matte stain, but it’s not drying at all on me. It really does have a sweet cherry flavor, but it’s not overpowering to me. I liked it so much that I went out and purchased Vivid Violet (yes, I’ll review it too :) ).

Sugarpill Darling Turquoise Cat Eye Look I really love lip crayons like this (of course you already know this), and I’m so excited that Stila put these out in bright colors and a wonderful formula. I’ll definitely be picking up more. I feel like this is a very flattering shade on my skintone and it’s so much fun to wear under blacklights!

I really hope that Stila decides to keep the After Glow Lip Colors around (I know they’re supposed to be limited edition, but I can dream, right?) and that they expand the line. I think this is the best Stila formula that I’ve tried so far for lip products. I’m in love!

Have you tried the Stila After Glow Lip Colors? Do you like blacklight reactive products?
