All of Me
ILIA All of Me Multi-Stick ($34.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral with stronger, warmer undertones and a natural sheen. It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage, as marketed, that applied well to bare skin as well as over base products. The formula was spreadable and wasn’t prone to lifting up foundation or the like, which made it more versatile.
It could be applied with a brush or fingertips, but I found that fingertips were easier as the product was a solid balm that became more emollient and easier to use as it warmed up against my fingertips–the kind where just picking it up with my fingertip was enough to warm it up, so not much! It had a more gel-like consistency, so it was emollient with good glide.
It was best as a cream blush, as it applied well and lasted for seven and a half hours. As a lip product, it delivered a medium-level tint when applied directly from the tube–this method yielded more even, comfortable results–that lasted for two hours.

The formula is supposed to deliver a "soft wash of color" for cheeks and lips that can be applied with "fingertips or a densely packed brush." The product is best for someone who is looking primarily for a cream blush over a lip color, as the latter can work but it is short-wearing, thin, and didn't always sit well on lips (tended to emphasize texture/catch on flakes). It's by no means an ultra-hydrating lip balm, but it worked well as a cream blush.
These types of multi-tasking products often can be used in more than one way, but so often, they work well for a primary function; in this case, that's as a blush. The consistency was smooth, dense, and balm-like that had to be warmed up slightly with fingertips or held against the cheek. The finish was dewy without being overly tacky, but it never fully dried down, so those who need something more transfer-resistant will want to look elsewhere.
It was moderately emollient with a gel-cream feel, so it spread well over bare skin and wasn't prone to lifting up base products. It was easy to apply and diffuse for a "soft wash of color" as described. They were somewhat buildable to medium coverage if desired. The product wore between seven and eight hours before fading visibly.
As a lip product, they applied best from the tube, as this yielded more even coverage and minimized the product catching on imperfections. The coverage varied from sheer to medium and had higher coverage when applied from the tube. They lasted two to three hours as lip products.
