ILIA All of me multi-stick ($ 34.00 for 0.15 oz.) Is a muted, medium black coral with stronger, warmer undertones and a natural sheen. As marketed, it had a sheer to semi-transparent cover that worked well on both bare skin and base products. The formula was spreadable and didn’t tend to raise foundations or anything, which made it more versatile.
It could be applied with a brush or fingertips, but I found that the fingertips were simpler as the product was a firm balm that became more pliable and easy to use when heated against my fingertips – the kind that did it was picked up with just the fingertip was enough to warm it up, so not much! It had a more gel-like consistency, so it was pliable with good glide.
It was best as a creme blush as it applied well and lasted seven and a half hours. As a lip product, it delivered a medium shade when applied straight from the tube – this method gave smoother, more pleasant results – and lasted for two hours.

The formula is designed to provide a “soft color wash” for cheeks and lips that can be applied with “fingertips or a tightly packed brush”. The product is best for someone who is primarily looking for a cream that will blush over a lip color as the latter can work but is short-lived, thin, and doesn’t always sit well on the lips (tends to emphasize texture / to stick) flakes). It’s by no means an ultra-moisturizing lip balm, but it worked well as a cream blush.
These types of multitasking products can often be used in several ways, but often they work well for a primary function. In this case, it’s like a blush. The consistency was smooth, dense, and balm-like that had to be warmed up slightly with the tips of your fingers or pressed against your cheek. The finish was damp without being overly sticky, but it’s never completely dried out, so those in need of something more transfer-resistant might want to look elsewhere.
It was moderately pliable with a gel-cream feel so it spread well on bare skin and didn’t tend to lift base products. It was easy to apply and diffuse to achieve a “soft color wash” as described. If desired, they were somewhat buildable to medium in size. The product wore between seven and eight hours before visibly fading.
As a lip product, they were best applied from the tube as this gave more even coverage and minimized product catching in the event of imperfections. The coverage varied from pure to medium and had a higher coverage when applied from the tube. They lasted two to three hours as lip products.
