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?

  1. This seems like it would be right up my alley! I love a natural lip option that I don’t have to do too much with and since I have dry skin (and lips) nourishing is always a plus! Thanks for sharing I will have to check these out! xo

    1. I’d never even heard of them before, just stumbled across them on the M&S website. They have a very strong peppermint scent, but other then that, they’re lovely 😀
