All About Ilia Lipsticks and Tinted Lip Conditioners
suits my skin tone & hydrating without oil
at first, I don't like it. I don't like how it smells like, and there's an odd taste. Also, I'm -used to lip balm so I was expecting this to be the same texture. It's quite dry when you apply it, similar to a real lipstick, no oil, and pigmented.
But since I bought it already so I give it a try and keep using it... I realized that my inner lips don't have the skin peeling or it doesn't make my entire lips dry. It's really like a conditioner to your lips rather than a balm.
I will purchase another color next time. :)
I tried Arabian Knights first, but it left a pinky, purple stain. For me, Europa is what I've been searching for. Cranberry, not pink. Light skin, olive green eyes, medium brown hair. I've been chasing Bobbi Brown's Ruby Shine for years, but this is better. Weightless, perfectly natural color and feel. This will be a definite re-buy!
Back for more shades!
I used Arabian Nights almost every day so once I ran out I got the same shade and Bang Bang. It’s a good red shade but not full on. Gives a nice cherry color to the lips and can be layered for a more red look. I love using these because I don’t need a mirror and they sheer out well and feel great! Something this teacher can appreciate in between classes.
Nice texture not long lasting but thats okay by me
The best tinted lip balm out there. The consistency is perfect and the color is not too dark at all with my very fair skin. The perfect berry jam type shade. This is the perfect lip color to swipe on without a mirror because you know it will look good. For a natural lip flush of color this is it. If you are looking for a matte or super stay-in-the-lines precise everlasting 24 hr tattoo lip this is not it.
A top notch tinted balm
It's very moisturizing and the effect lasts quite long, unlike other tinted lip balms or lipsticks that seem to suck the moisture out after a short time. In Paradise is a great looking coral pink that remains sheer and subtle enough to look very natural with just the right punch of color. Depending on your skin tone (I'm warm toned), Funnel of Love is the perfect nude color for most days!
Moisturizing and nice pop of red
I love the tinted conditioners from Ilia, I find the lipsticks a bit too drying/cakey. The conditioner ones are very nice. They keep your lips moist for a few hours and more importantly its slightly sheer but still pigmented enough. Bang Bang comes out as a nice shade of red
Beautiful, pigmented color
I have pigmented lips and it's hard to find paler lip colors that don't disappear or dry out my lips or tug at them during application. Dizzy doesn't quite drench my lips in moisture, as I would usually apply a lip balm underneath, but it definitely wasn't drying. But it showed up very well on me and even brightens up my complexion a bit.
