Today I'm reviewing one of Stila's cult blush products - the convertible color cream! I had originally intended to buy the shade 'Gerbera' but I figured 'Petunia' would suit the time of year a little better..but who really cares for trends? Not I!
Still - it's a very pretty colour so I caved.
The packaging of this product is really sweet.I love the embossed floral design on the front,coupled with the cute,light-weight feel of the compact itself.Despite the plastic,this doesn't feel cheap in the slightest.The compact comes with a mirror in the lid.
The pan comes with a nice sized amount of product at 4.25g.
In the pan,Petunia appears to be a bright,creamy pink shade.When swatched,the colour sheers out significantly - though this is a big advantage when you consider that it's a blush.Who wants clown cheeks?!
Swatched without a base.
I think this colour is really pretty for paler skintones and really give the cheeks a sweet,flushed appearance.Since it's convertible and can be used on the lips,this will be lovely for adding a sheer wash of colour to them,without going buck wild.
This product will last around the 5-6 hour mark on cheeks..depending on the weather.On lips,more around 3-4 hours (no touch-ups).Blending is pretty easy - I use the Real Techniques Stippling Brush to distribute the blush after dabbing it on with the tips of my fingers.
It's a great product to own,with many different options in terms of it's 9 colour shade range.These aren't exactly cheap at £16.00,but worth it if you want long-lasting blush.
