Fact is it’s not Fall but I’m so getting vampy today with Stila Brigitte Color Balm Lipstick for Summer!

I figure we can rock a vampy lip or two even in the warmer weather eh?

Stila Brigitte Color Balm Lipstick is yet ANOTHER awesome shade of Color Balm Lipstick that I purchased recently. I guess at this point I own almost all of them. I couldn’t just grab one they are so terribly addicting.

Stila Brigitte Color Balm Lipstick is a black cherry wine shade, think Merlot! It’ll be very sexy and sultry on a skin tone deeper than my own.

Count me surprised as I typically can’t wear a vampy lip but I think this looks pretty good on me!

The formula is super as I’ve raved a plenty around. The Stila Color Balm Lipstick formula has the wear and pigment of a lipstick and the texture of a lip balm. I find the formula has a slightly tacky, balmy finish on my lips that’s moist and light hydrating. Brigitte actually applies opaque but you need to build it as the first application I can see my lips through the shade. It does migrate as well, it’s just that kinda color so a little lip liner helps things along. It wears for about four hours before it fades and leaves a stain behind. The creamy formula glides onto my lips without tugging and it never accentuates my drier areas leaving behind smooth color with a high sheen. If you’re sensitive keep in mind these have a peppermint taste and fragrance!

Needless to say I love the Color Balm Lipstick formula!

Brigitte is a gorgeous shade and well worth a pick up for your Fall vampy lip looks!

    This color looks good on you! It looks comfortable to wear also. I think I’m going to buy this once it is available in my country.

    When I looked at the shades last month in ulta, they didn’t seem wearable to me at all. But after seeing how nice they look on you, I’m going back over there today to swatch a few. I believe the stila 25% off sale is still on today – might have to grab a couple!

    Once again, gorgeous look! Perfect for today, Friday the 13th! 🙂

    Stunning shade on you! Looks beautiful! And now I think I need to add this shade to my cart (doing some Stila shopping)… 😀 I love shades like this when I go for a more vampy look.
