This sweet, lovely, vibrant color, Mango Crush, is part of Stila's 2009 Indian Summer Collection.
The shade is very true to it's name - a little orange, a little peach and a touch of red. I found it to be one of Stila's most flattering and versatile shades in the Lip and Cheek stain line. It also has just a touch of pearl finish which really looks great on the cheeks.
This worked perfectly with any neutral or bronzy eye colors and I even got a great result by adding a bit on my cheekbones, over a creamy bronzer. The texture is light and very creamy, so it was easy to blend for the cheek color and brush over lips. The staying power is great - it gave me a dewy (not greasy) finish that lasted during the entire day on the cheeks, and with just a touch up or two on the lips during the day. I have always loved Stila's click pens and so this also get high points for it's portability and ease of use with the click pen mechanism.
This color will work very well up to about a Gabrielle Union shade. Stila Mango Crush Lip & Cheek Stain is a little gem in the Stila Indian Summer collection - don't miss out! - RLB
