Ilia Beauty limited edition

It is no secret that I am a little obsessed with Ilia lipsticks, the colours and the quality of them are just so much more than I ever expected from a "natural' brand.

Last year Ilia introduced their first limited edition colours: In paradise, Crimson and clover, and after a little while Voila. The problem with limited edition products for me is that sometimes I like them more than the main collection.



The problem with Ilia is that I can't possibly choose just the one colour as a favourite, I sort of like them equally but for different occasions. And I absolutely did fall in love with those three limited edition ones. That is why I am so super excited that Ilia brought them back this year!



Crimson and clover. I have mentioned this one before in some of my posts. It is one of the tinted balms, but the colour itself is more intense than Bang Bang and the tint that it leaves behind is a gorgeous clover pink (the name describes this shade perfectly). It is one of the most unusual lip colours that I have come across and it really speaks to the chameleon within me. As with the other tinted lip conditioners, it is moisturising and the tint lasts even after eating or drinking.

Voila. One of my go to summer colours. It falls somewhere between orange and tomato red. This one is a lipstick, so it is more pigmented then the lip conditioner. Looks gorgeous with or without a tan, it is one of those colours that doesn't really require eye makeup. Great paired up with Ilia Sway bronzer.

In paradise. Every so often I get a little tired of bright lips (yeah that happens), then this is the colour I go for. It is a tinted lip conditioner so it leaves a bit of a stain behind that lasts most of the day. The colour is a combination of peachy pink nude, the stain is a little more on the pink side. I got this colour because I liked the name (I know not the best reason to choose a lipstick), however it ended up being the most flattering muted shade of lipstick that I have ever owned.



All three colours are available on the Ilia website. In paradise is also available on naturisimo. Voila and Crimson and clover are available on Net-a-porter.

  3. In Paradise on you looks like such a beautiful nude!! I love it!! I am too tempted to get it but not sure how the nude will look against my skin tone. AND, I am dying to get my hands on Crimson and Clover, but it's only in stock on Ilia website now :(
