Stila Color Balm Lipstick – $22

Hey Belleza’s,

So it looks like Stila has jumped on the Lip balm lipstick bandwagon! When I saw this at Ulta, I knew I had to try it. It was so hard trying to decide which color to go with. I swatched the entire line and it took me like 15 minutes to pick one, LOL. At first I had picked up Sonja, but when I got to the counter and looked at my hand full of swatches, I just knew I had to run back and grab Gemma as well.

Here’s the description from the Stila website : “Featuring a luxe, satin finish, this formula offers excellent color payoff while phyto-derived emollient properties deliver hydrated, healthy lips. Naturally cooling peppermint oil provides a fresh and rejuvenating sensation on the lips, while an exclusive certified organic sunflower-based polyglyceride soothes, smoothes, and adds volume and definition to lips.

I have to say that Stila did a great job with these! They are super moisturizing, extremely pigmented, go on very smooth, leaves behind a glossy finish, and last a long time. I got a good 4-6 hrs of wear with this, which included eating and drinking.

My lips have been very dry this winter, I wanted to test out the moisture on these so I applied them without using any balm to prime my lips and it really hydrated my lips!

Also, this balm does contain peppermint oil, most products that contain peppermint oil leave lips very tingly  but this did not make my lips feel tingly at all.

Hopefully soon, the rest of the colors in this collection will find their way into my home. 🙂

Here are some pictures of me wearing both colors:

  1. Oh my goodness, this is not helping my spending habits, especially seeing as how AMAZING they look on you!

    I would totally try these out. Damn my spending ban!

  2. Hahaha! I found your second photo very cute. 😀 Love the pigmentation of the lipsticks too! They looked wonderful on you! 😀
    Just a question, what do your pair with Plum-ish lips. I don’t think I can dare myself to wear that color out.
