I was gifted the Stila Color Balm lipstick in Natasha* recently; a smooth, fabulously pigmented browny red lipstick. Honestly, I didn't expect to like it much - I generally don't really get on with brownish lipsticks or even very pigmented ones. From the name Color Balm you wouldn't expect something so intense!
I didn't manage to get a decent picture of me wearing it so there isn't one on the actual post - but you can click here if you must see it (plz excuse the state of my skin). I didn't capture the colour very well though! From my messy application (the bullet it super wide but also I'm terrible) I think it's safe to say you'd be better off using a lip brush or liner - or do what I do, which is dab a light layer over a coating of Rêve De Miel for a sheerer finish.
The colour is slightly cool-toned, (and like I've mentioned) a brownish, darknened red that is surprisingly flattering. I actually really like the lipstick though, the formula has just the right amount of sheen and the shade has definitely grown on me - It's also perfect for A/W and more specifically Christmas (just 92 days, guys)!
