Stila Ruby Color Balm Lipstick Review & Swatches

Stila Color Balm Lipstick Ruby

Stila Ruby Color Balm Lipstick is one of several shades I recently purchased when Stila had a great 40% off sale! I couldn’t resist. A reader also recently told me Stila Color Balm Lipstick is available in select shades at Ulta for $12 bucks…jeepers at this rate I’ll own them all!

They are a little like Pokemon, I just have to have ’em all!

Stila Ruby Color Balm Lipstick is a delightful warm brick red! It’ll be perfect for some of my Fall looks but I paired it up today with Perricone MD No Blush Blush on my cheeks and it looks rather great…natural cheeks, popping pout!

This is quite pigmented as all of the Color Balm Lipsticks are with a creamy balmy texture that has a peppermint flavor and fragrance. The hybrid formulas has the texture of a lip balm but the color of a full coverage lipstick with a high shine finish that gives my lips a gloss look that wears for four hours without migrating or feathering. These keep my lips SO soft and smooth through the wear with a good deal more moisture than I get from Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter.

So far some of the other shades I reviewed are more natural colors but Stila Ruby Color Balm Lipstick packs a nice punch of red!

Loves this one!

    This looks GORGEOUS on you! I tend to stay away from red lippies, but for $12 I thought I’d give it a go. I have to have them all too! 😉

    So after looking at this page a million times I finally got this today and I love it. Something about that shade of red on you looked intriguing! I got more than 4 hours out of it .. I just pressed my lips together when it started to fade off and boom.. it looked good again. I am always amazed when a lipstick doesn’t feather on me and this did not.
