Does This Stila Lip Crayon Really Glow? And Do We Even Want It To?

We've been hearing a lot of buzz about Stila's new lip crayons, and not just because of its electric color palette (though that's definitely something to talk about in and of itself). The After Glow Lip Color actually claims to glow in black light. It's supposed to pop in the sun, too, but what really caught our attention was the hypothetical vision of our mouths glowing pink, floating around on the dance floor. We thought it might straddle the line of campy and awesome, but couldn't really be sure just by looking at it.
Since we couldn't imagine how this product could a) work and b) also be flattering in daylight, we convinced our production assistant Gabrielle to test it out. If this self-identified homebody can appreciate a cosmetic essentially designed to be worn at the club, we're pretty sure anyone can. Watch to find out if it lives up to the hype, and let us know what you think. Will you be setting your pout aglow?
