New Stila Color Balm Lipsticks: Gemma Swatch


While chatting with Janie Howarth, Stila's UK Pro Make Up Artist last week, one of the newest introductions from the brand for their Spring 2013 collection really caught my eye. These brand new Color Balm Lipsticks, housed in high shine silver tubes and available in 18 stunning colours really pack a punch when it comes to pigment (Look Maw, I can do Ps)

Stila Gemma: €21.50
These creamy, extremely glossy shades have all the colour pay off of a long wear lipstick but are chock full of what makes balms so comfortable to wear. Hydrating emollient and cooling peppermint oil soothe the lips and mean that these Color Balm Lipsticks will give any lip butter a run for its money. There's also sunflower based polyglyceride that promises to ass volume and definition to your kisser. 



I've shown you here my natural lips, Gemma (bright violet pink) touched on lightly for a very wearable daytime lip tint with serious staying power and then full on colour. I've spoken before about how I'm more a coffee coloured lipstick fan  but this bright beauty is actually very flattering with my colouring and I've found myself reaching for it more and more. 


You'll find Stila Color Balm Lipsticks on counters now for the princely sum of €21.50 and with 18 shades to choose from you're guaranteed to find your perfect shade match. I know I'm hankering after another two already.
