ILIA Beauty is a sure stand-out in the natural and green beauty world. Between their modern packaging, trendy shades, and clean, non-toxic formulations, they’ve earned a top spot in my ‘beauty brands to explore more of’ list for 2017. Today, I’m excited to review their Multi-Stick, a three-in-one beauty essential.
ILIA Beauty Multi-Sticks
IILA Beauty’s Multi-Sticks are made with natural ingredients, a majority of which are also certified organic. Up on the very top of the ingredient list, you’ll find sunflower seed oil, caster seed oil, cocoa seed butter, and beeswax. These oils and waxes give the Multi-Sticks their creamy smooth texture, while also helping to nourish, heal, and hydrate the skin. The color can be applied to the cheeks, lips, and eyes to add a healthy, sheer wash of color.
ILIA’s Multi-Sticks currently come in six different shades, from berries and cool pinks, to warm tangerines and reds. Here’s the full list (see swatches below of 5 out of the 6 shades):
- A Fine Romance (berry)
- All of Me (warm watermelon)
- At Last (muted, dusty rose)
- Cheek to Cheek (sienna red)
- I Put a Spell on You (bright, tangerine shade)
- Tenderly (light pink with blue undertones)

ILIA Beauty Multi-Sticks Review
Out of all the cream blushes/multi-stick products I’ve tried, this one is by far my favorite. For starters, the formula is super smooth and creamy, making it incredibly easy to work with. It doesn’t drag or pull on the skin as you apply it, or need ‘warmed up’ first like other sticks often do. Instead, the stick’s oil-based formula glides on smooth and evenly straight from the tube, and blends out to a seamless, natural-looking finish in seconds.
The pigmentation starts out semi-sheer and can be built up for more intensity. For me, I find that one layer is enough to add a healthy glow on my light-medium skin. I don’t typically set this as I love the glowing sheen it leaves on the cheeks, however, you can apply blush or powder over top if you prefer a more matte look. Either way, the blush lasts all day long!
Wearing ILIA Multi-Stick in Cheek to Cheek – one layer applied straight from the stick, and blended in with fingers.
(Swatched heavily using ~3 layers) Cheek to Cheek / I Put a Spell on You / All of Me / Tenderly / A Fine Romance
(Slightly blended in swatches) Cheek to Cheek / I Put a Spell on You / All of Me / Tenderly / A Fine Romance
Overall, these ILIA Multi-Sticks make the perfect addition to any minimal and natural makeup routine. They’re also one of my personal favorite beauty products at the moment. Here are all the reasons why I’m loving these:
- can be used on the cheeks, lips, and eyes
- have a creamy texture that’s super blendable
- offer the perfect amount of pigmentation for natural-looking coverage and color
- add a healthy glow without any shimmer or glitter
- are made with natural and organic ingredients
- provide skincare benefits and help hydrate the skin
- and finally…the little tubes are perfect for travel and tossing in our purse!
