Stila Color Balm Lipstick in Betsey

By Wednesday, May 08, 2013 , , , , , ,

A modern take on traditional lipstick, this creamy lip color provides the full pigment load of a lipstick, yet delivers the nourishing properties of a balm.
 When I saw that Stila discontinued their Long Wear Lip Color - Matte lip stick I was shocked. I loved those...Exhilarating in particular. Then I realized they were replacing them with super vibrant moisturizing lipstick I got excited. I instantly grabbed Betsey and bought it. I went home and swatches my arm. That swatch stayed put for a day. There was still bits of it two day later, after I bathed a dozen dogs. Incredible!
 left top shade: Mac Lipstick in  Candy Yum Yum
Left bottom shade: Stila Long Wear Lip Color - Matte in Exhilarating
Right shade: Stila Color Balm Lipstick in Betsey.

As you can see it is a very vibrant pink with a gloss (the moisturizing element to it). It is in tone and shade very similar to both Stila Exhilarating and Mac's Candy Yum Yum. I have fallen in deep love with this stick and may buy more soon.
