Stila Natasha Color Balm Lipstick Review & Swatches

Stila Natasha Color Balm Lipstick3

Stila Natasha Color Balm Lipstick is my favorite shade of Stila Color Balm Lipstick. If I keep saying that you’re not going to believe me! I can’t decide on a favorite shade, they are all beautiful and each one I try becomes a favorite!


Stila Natasha Color Balm Lipstick is a stunning shade of a must have brick red!

Stila Natasha Color Balm Lipstick is called a spicy red and yeah, sure it’s that but officially it’s a brick red :) This is definitely a me kinda red as it seems to play at being both warm and cool. It’s full coverage with a beautiful shine and a crazy long wear with staining after it fades away.

Stila Natasha Color Balm Lipstick Swatches

Stila Color Balm Lipstick is a hybrid formula that has the full coverage of a color lipstick but the most moisturizing feel and texture of a lip balm. I find they wear pleasantly lightweight on my drier lips offering some moisture but not a ton with a slightly tacky, balmy texture that’s lightweight and comfortable to wear. I’d like them to Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter but with a creamier consistency and a longer wear that I can anywhere from four to five hours out of. Natasha falls in at the five hour mark as she wears very strong for me and fades a little into hour five and complete disappears by hour six leaving behind a staining effect.

She’s one of the smoothest and richest shades I’ve tried thus far in the Color Balm Lipstick range! And don’t get me wrong all the shades are pigmented but Natasha definitely packs excellent opaque color!

For sensitive users Color Balm Lipstick does have a fresh peppermint taste and flavor but it disappears fairly quickly after the initial application.

Another Muse Approval for the Color Balm Lipstick range! Stila Natasha Color Balm Lipstick is a must have serving up excellent color, a lightly hydrating formula, and plenty of drama!

    I want all of them! Can’t order til the fall; they will melt in my mailbox. Love the richness of the colors!

      aw darn! but hey they are ideal for Fall looks some of the shades are perfect for fall 😀

    In your swatches, this looks very similar to Ruby – I think Natasha may have a bit more coolness to it. Are they that much alike in real life?


    • 6/11/14 9:13 Isabella Muse:

      actually it’s reversed, Ruby is cooler and Natasha more warmer :) Ruby is more tomato red and Natasha more brick :) Hope this helps!?

        Thanks, Muse!! I never trust my monitor – and this is exactly why. I’m going to have to go swatch in person.

        Shucks. Darn. 😉
