stila convertible color in gerbera

I've had my eye on acquiring one of the Stila Convertible Colours for a while and thought it was about time I got around to buying one. I've never seen anything from Stila in person, so I bought Gerbera blind. By that I mean I didn't actually look at swatches before I bought it, which is surprising as I tend to always read reviews or swatches before buying something. It was a spur of the moment purchase! I've been very much getting into my cream blushes recently and I always hear about Convertible colours so I thought I'd give it a whirl!

Convertible Color's have a real luxurious, creamy texture which is super easy to blend. Gerbera is a very natural light neutral pinky peach shade which is right up my street. It melts perfectly into the cheeks to give a soft flush of colour without looking heavy or too much. You can use as much or as little as you like depending on the ammount of flush you'd like. I tend to apply a little at first and then build it up as I feel it can get quite pigmented if you go in with too much product. On first use I did feel that the product was a bit tackyt and that it just wouldn't look very nice on my oily skin. However I found it didn't leave my skin looking blotchy, patchy or greasy at all which left me pleasantly surprised.

When I apply to the cheeks I pop a few dots with my fingers then blend out with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.  When applying to the lips I just dab it on with a finger, although I like the colour on my lips I just feel like it doesn't sit very nicely on my lips. It's not drying but it just feels a touch suffocating which I found hard to wear. I can see this generally being used as blush. Very pretty and very easy to apply!

  2. This looks so pretty on you!
    I am dying to try one of these. I think I will try 'Lillium' first. As much as i love Gerbra on you I don't think it would suit me.

  7. I have a bit of a love hate relationship with cream blushes in that I struggle to find one that sits on my skin properly. The only one I have tried and loved is Benefit Fine One One, but this one looks promising so will have to give it a try! Lovely colour on you Lily!

  34. i always think that products that are both available to use on cheeks as well as lips are great because it's like 2-in-1! the colour of this is just gorgeous and on you it just looks like a really natural flush on your cheeks (which makes me very tempted as i'd rather have a lighter, more natural blush than one that is far too noticeable!). i also like how you can build it up so it can be as light or as pigmented as you like!
