Stila Maya Color Balm Lipstick is one of several shades of Stila Color Balm Lipstick I recently purchased during Stila’s Mother’s Day Sale. I already reviewed the product before but I was terribly tempted to grab up a few more shades and revisit this product because I adored it so much after trying a VIB sample I got at Sephora.
Let’s take a look!
Stila Maya Color Balm Lipstick is a pretty nude shade of warm terracotta with elements of dusky peach. I’d say Stila’s Color Balm Lipstick formula is most comparable to Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in terms of texture, pigment, and formula. Stila’s formula is a hint creamier but all in all they are very similarly formulated.

The hybrid formula is a lightweight, hydrating balm with a lipstick-like texture and pigment. It’s a very creamy formula with a highly pigmented color pay off that’s quite opaque on a single pass. They have a peppermint taste and fragrance that’s very pleasant to my nose and mouth. I find the color glides on super easily without tugging. The satin finish has a slight sheen to it and I find the texture very wearable and comfortable without being highly hydrating but providing enough moisture that my drier lips enjoy. Wear time is about four hours and in that time I have no issues with the balm migrating or feathering.
I adore Maya! It’s a great nude and natural shade and since I’m really embracing the naked look for Summer this is a good shade to do so with!
Originally I gave the Stila Color Balm Lipstick a big Muse Approval in my review and it still gets a Muse Approval.
Maya is a beautiful shade if you love warmer terracottas!
