Stila Vivienne Color Balm Lipstick Review & Swatches

Stila Color Balm Lipstick Vivienne

Stila Vivienne Color Balm Lipstick is one of the first shades of Stila Color Balm Lipstick I tried. It was actually a Sephora perk as they gave a small deluxe sample to Sephora VIBers a few months ago. Funny as I had purchased a few Stila Color Balm Lipsticks prior to that but lord knows I misplaced them and haven’t a clue where they ended up so I recently repurchased a majority of the shades during Stila’s Mother’s Day Sale.

Best purchase I’ve done in a while too because as you know by now I adore this formula!

Stila Vivienne Color Balm Lipstick a lighter dusky blush rose. This is quite a lovely MLBB (my lips but better shade) for those that want a blushing rose lip look. I adored the color when I first tried and still think it’s a very beautiful, natural shade.

I personally adore Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters but Stila Color Balm Lipstick does seem to have the creamier texture of the two. The hybrid formula is one part moisturizing balm and one part pigmented lipstick. It’s very creamy with a excellent opaque pigmentation and a cool peppermint taste and fragrance. It applies without tugging and has a plus feel on lips with a satin finish that has a high sheen. The formula wears for four hours and doesn’t feather or migrate on my lips.

Between the color, the nice comfortable lighter yet moist wear, and the lovely texture and formula on these I really can’t rave Stila Color Balm Lipstick enough.

Vivienne is just another great shade of this wonderful formula!

P.S. I just recently noticed the top of the tube has a mirror for application! Cool!

        I just had to come back on this – my order arrived yesterday, and I wore it yesterday and today. This is now my very favourite every-day lipstick! Amazing – it moisturises, is the perfect MLBB for me, and I’m going to order more shades for other moods/occasions – thanks for the info on this one, it’s what I’ve been wanting for ages :)

    I am still looking for the perfect MLBB for when I wear more intense eye makeup. I don’t want to look beat but I also don’t want to let my lips get dry by not applying anything at all. I usually go for Clinique Voluptuous Violet even though it can be a touch too dark or some other balm-y kind of product. Every pink lipstick I’ve tried looks unnatural… too bright or too dark.
