Stila Valentina Color Balm Lipstick Review & Swatches

Stila Color Balm Lipstick Valentina

Another day, another Stila Color Balm Lipstick to love on! Today I’m rocking (or I’m trying to rock) Stila Valentina Color Balm Lipstick. Seriously, does orange every get tired for Summer? Me thinks not.

Stila Valentina Color Balm Lipstick is a bright orange poppy that’s sure to please those with warmer skin!

Have a look!

Ok, so this looks almost neon orange on me. I swear if I turn out the lights I’d probably glow! But I adore it even though it might be a bit much for me.

Like all of the Stila Color Balm Lipsticks I’ve tried thus far this is a great formula. It’s creamy, it’s richly pigmented, it acts as a lipstick in terms of color, and a lip balm in terms of texture and the moisture it provides. Valentina actually wears a good five hours on me versus the four I’ve seen from other shades which is a plus! I’d liken the formula to Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter most but I find Stila’s formula is a bit thicker and has considerably more pigment. It does sport a peppermint flavor and fragrance so sensitive users beware.

    Eee! It’s so bright and pigmented. I would look like a clown. But the swatch is so tempting.

    i picked up a few and think they look and feel great on but they are so chunky its hard to put them on without going outside the lip line a bit. thats the only thing that annoys me about them.
