ILIA Stutter Color Haze Pigment Review & Swatches

by Joseph K. Clark

ILIA Stutter Color Haze Multi-Use PigmentILIA Stutter Color Haze Multi-Use Pigment ($32.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral with strong, warm orange undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had a slightly thicker, more gel-like consistency that distributed evenly over bare skin but dried down to a more semi-matte finish (which distinguished this formula from their other cheek/lip formulas).

It was easy to work with as a cheek product, as it spread well and blended out without difficulty. The texture was noticeably tackier and harder to wear on my lips as it was a little thin and clingy. It wore well for seven hours as a cream blush and two hours as a lip product, non-drying over time.

It’s supposed to have “buildable” coverage that could be worn as a “wash of color” or built up to “richer, bolder payoff.” It can be used on cheeks as well as lips. The consistency has a smooth, liquid-cream consistency–much more spreadable and more emollient than a potted cream blush but a bit denser and more substantial than a true liquid blush. On my lips, it had a thinner, clingier consistency and moderate tackiness. The coverage was sheer to medium (depending on how much product was applied or with what tool) and could be built up somewhat, but it was difficult to get much beyond medium.

The shades I tried to spread out and blended out nicely on my cheeks without emphasizing my skin texture or lifting foundation, and they dried down for the most part. The color went on reasonably well as a lip product, but the lighter shade was more prone to settling into my lip lines while the deeper shade went on more flatteringly. They lasted six to seven hours as a cheek color, and as a lip product, they lasted between two and three hours and were non-drying.

It had a sweet, vanilla scent, and there was a bit of a tingle on my skin when I used it as a cheek color but not something I noticed on my lips. Browse all of our ILIA Color Haze Multi-Use Pigment swatches.
