I’ve never heard anyone speak of the Stila Colour Balms, and so I knew I would need to try one. I thought I would go with a classic – a nude, with a pink undertone. This shade of lipstick is very much up my street and very much one I would love to use day in day out. The shade I have is Olivia, but it comes in 13 shades ranging from a light colourless balm to a deep berry shade.
The formula is essentially a nourishing lipstick. It is a highly pigmented lipstick with soft, balm-like properties. With gold metal casing, the lipstick gives off a high quality appearance. It is essentially a pigmented lip balm, and so super comfortable and easy to apply and wear and the colours are pretty.
The main downside, for me, is one of their ingredients; Peppermint Oil – which cools and calms the lips. It means the lipstick has a minty smell and a tingling feeling on the lips.
However, for those days when I want a natural look, but still to look composed and presentable, this would be the perfect lip option.
Have you tried this, if so, what are your thoughts?
