Product Review: Stila lip glazes

Hey guys! I am reviewing some stila lip glazes today. I am a huge lip gloss fan and I never leave the house with out some lip gloss in my purse or my pocket! I saw online that there were stila lip glaze trios on sale for $12 so I decided to buy 2 of them. One of them was a birchbox exclusive set and it has shimmery neutral colors. The other one was called tiki time or something like that. These colors are more fun and bright/pink. So first let me talk about the formulation. It is a sticky gloss. If you are out on a windy day your hair is going to get all up in the gloss. That being said, this is a long wearing gloss because it stays on your lips (because of the tacky consistency). It does have a fruity scent to it, which although you can smell it when you put it on doesn't bother me when I wear it. The pigmentation is just okay, but the colors are pretty. Overall I like the formulation because when i put on a gloss I want it to stay there for more than 5 minutes. 
Lights: is a pinky nude color with shimmer. It has good staying power but with all the shimmer colors I would watch out because once the gloss wears off, you will still have glitter/shimmer flakes on your lips
Camera: in the tube it looks more pink than lights, but on my skin it looks more browny nude. I think this may be because it has worse pigmentation than lights. Once again, it has shimmer
Action: a rosy pink color with shimmer. This is my favorite and the pigmentation of this is great
Guava: a light pink that is barely noticeable on the lips. It is a cream finish
Hibiscus: a shimmery pink color. It is lighter than action and like action, it has shimmer in it
Tropical punch: a medium/deep pink color. It has good pigmentation and is a cream finish
Let me know below what you think of these glosses and which glosses are your favorite!
