• Stila Color Balm Lipstick

    I have not really been a big lipstick wearer but this year I have really started to love wearing lipstick.  Ever since the Stila Color Balm Lipsticks hit our stores I have been wanting one all because the packaging is simply amazing! I love the metal tube and the knockout Stila logo in the cap. The packaging makes the whole experience of applying lipstick so glamorous and special.
    Gabrielle Nude Pink
    The reason why this is called a Color Balm Lipstick is because it a lipstick that has the benefits of a lip balm.  The pigmentation of all the lipsticks I tried out in the store were all very good and all of them had a wonderful peppermint scent to them.  I was so taken with the Nude Pink (Gabrielle) that I just had to get it.

    The lipstick has a beautifully smooth and creamy consistency that glides on easily.  The colour also lasts incredibly well.  This is not meant to be a lip tint or lip stain so I did not at all expect this lipstick to last all that long.  I have been very pleasantly surprised by this.  The lipstick contains peppermint oil that causes a minty, tingling sensation on your lips and makes them feel refreshed.  The tip of the cap has a shiny, reflective surface that acts as a mirror that definitely comes in handy.  

    I simply adore wearing this lipstick.

    Would love to hear from those of you who have tried this.

    Big Hugs,

    1. I love these! I have Gabrielle too and it is my favourite colour. I love the minty tingly feeling of them too. I swear there is nothing Stila makes which I don't really love, I think they are brilliant.

      1. I am very taken with the brand, will definitely be getting more products from them too. I saw that they are a cruelty free brand as well, that is a HUGE plus!

    5. I love the pigment of this, but I prefer a glossy look, so I actually prefer the glazes

      1. I am more a lip balm girl. This does have a nice shine to it but it isn't glossy.

    7. Ah, I've been looking for this colour everywhere! Popped into Cavendish Woolworths and they were sold out :( And Foschini doesn't have either. Sigh!
