Stila Convertible Color - Product Rave




Just wanted to rave about this product that I have been religiously using from a week or so.

As you know already, I am kinda crazy about cream blushes these days as they are just about perfect for the winter hence this purchase.

Its a pretty unique 'milky' peachy pink color. Dont be decieved by how it looks in the pan as it provides a fresh radiant flush on the cheeks without there being too much pink!

You can apply it with your fingers and just pat to blend. It comes with an inbuilt mirror and hence great for whey you're on the go. It applies best with a 187 or a 116 though.

I love the consistency - although its kinda sticky, it blends easily and lasts all day literally. Pigmentation wise - its pretty pigmented so its best to use it sparingly or else you'l end up looking overtly glowy.

You can use it on your lips too and it provides the most gorgeous nude peach lips. Surprisingly it gives more coverage than a lipstick but make sure you use it on moisturised lips as it can be slightly drying.

On the whole, Stila Convertibles are must-haves and multifunctional. I am planning to stock up on other shades soon. In my 'drool list' are Convertibles in Poppy and Lillium :)

Overall a 5/5 product

su-pah said...

ooh, awesome, is this one gerbera?
i have lillium, petunia, poppy and gladiola and love them all.
i do find the application is a bit tricky on my dry skin though, but end results are always worth it.

btw, i'm a bit of a south-asian/desi outcast as in i've never really been able to get into bollywood but i absolutely love the pic of the actress in the last pic of your bollywood divas panel. sonam kapoor looks absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous, love the look!

Lipstick Rules said...

I have lillium and love it. I think it would look amazing on you!

Shifa said...

@Supah - yes this is gerbera hun :) and I adore Sonam too, she'l always so sculpted!

@Lipstick Rules - I will try Lillium for sure :)
