Review & Swatches: Stila Convertible Color in Peony

I love Convertible Color!! Well, I think everyone of us do love them isn't it? This is my very first Convertible Color from Stila. I got this as a birthday gift from one of my sweet friend, Starryxuan. (Hugs hugs) Although it was a tiny compact size, but this is one of the blusher that turn me on!!

I'm not a very cream cheek person. I got my first cream blush from NYC and I get obsessed with it.
Convertible Color is supposed to be dual cream cheeks and lips color but I personally only use it on my cheeks as I find it feels quite weird on my lips and some of the colors just don’t work well and talk about hygiene.

Packaging:
It is in a good-sized compact, and the front says Stila Convertible Color. There are also super cute graphics on the front, winding around the the words. The one I owed is a tiny compact size, but for the actual size it comes with a mirror inside which I find it good enough. The compacts are also very easy to close, and somewhat easy to open, so that is always a plus.
Texture & Swatches:
The texture is slightly thick as a creamy base product. It is very pigmented, the staying powder is awesome. 
I rarely have to touch up my cheek color even after 8 hours. I've compared this to my other cream blusher, I shall say Stila did the best upon this. Besides that, it provides a nice color without being oily, drying or cakey.
With the cream texture, it could last you more than months even if you use this everyday.

My Review:
Since this product is in the perfect size compact, it will be a great space saver in a makeup bag. Ever since I tried this out, I got hooked. I dumped it into my makeup up. So whenever I am in rush or to lazy for a full makeup look, this is just for the right pinch of color for my cheeks!

Applied a few dot of the blusher on my cheek
I've tried this on my cheek and the result is awesome!! Look how natural and gorgeous it looks on my skin. I got compliments from my friends that I look fresh and glowy after applying this blush. =) 
Add on more for heavier blush
Rating: 4.8/ 5
Stila Convertible Colors are overall great products!! Although I find the price of Stila Convertible Colors are kinda pricey about US$25, but it was worth for every penny. This product are available at stilacosmetics.com, Sephora and Ulta stores everywhere.
I love this product and I know anyone else who uses it will fall in love, too. So what's on my next list will be Stila Convertible Color in Petunia & Orchid~~ :)

this looks gorgeous on your cheeks ! sometimes i find cream blushes not to work for me because they make me look kinda greasy :S and hard to blend too. I have this mini convertible by stila and it seemed to have dried up pretty badly :( mine doens't look as 'creamy' as yours is !

Jen@lifeandlensofbeauty said...

btw how did you apply this blush to your cheeks ^_^?

Starryxuan♥ said...

The color looks really pretty on you! I have to admit, I'm not much of a cheek stain/cream personal though - I find that powder blushes are so much easier to apply and longer lasting.

it seems so dark in the pan but once on your cheek it looks natural. nice!

mint said...

wow the colour in the pan compare to when it's on your cheeks is so different! I would never have guess it look that good on. it's so brown and orange in the pan.

Yes..I love powder blushes too but this cream blusher amazed me.

Thank you dear. Have you tried those?

Cynthia Loh said...

Yes, at the first glance I look at it I wouldn't love them. Until I try it on my face, it look glowy~~
