Cream blushes are great. They travel well, are easy to apply, and help give you a natural and glowy finish. Today I am going to Review the Stila Convertible Colour Cream Blush.
Stila is a huge brand that has been around for quite some time, I have used many of their eyeshadow palettes both professionally and privately so I was very excited to get my hands on some of their Convertible Colour Cream Blush products (yeah I know I’m late). I held myself back and only bought two colours (I normally have to convince myself that I do not NEED the entire collection just because I can use it in my kit as well) that I thought would work well for both cheeks and lips. The colours I settled on are Poppy and Lillium.
Poppy is a lovely red/deepish pink shade that mimics a natural flush, very nice for both lip and cheek use. This shade is lovely for spring or summer months when you want to show off your tan but don’t want anything that looks too heavy.
Lillium is a lovely soft pink, very flattering and extremely natural colour that will be great to use on the young and old alike. One thing that I feel the need to mention about this shade is that although I find it a beautiful shade for the cheeks, it does not work that well on the lips (in my experience) if not combined with a slightly darker lip gloss.
If one of these two shades I am discussing today does not work for you I highly suggest you check out the other nine shades in the collection to find what works best for you.
The formulation of the cream blush is a lovely buttery consistency that glides on to the skin and blends in seamlessly with the use of a foundation brush (it’s my brush of choice for cream products) a beauty blender or even just your fingers. With ingredients like Castor oil and beeswax the Stila cream blush is especially great for people that have dryer skin, like myself, because they just blend in so well without clumping around and exacerbating skin flakes like many powder products tend to do.
If you have skin that tends to be oily I would recommend that you apply the blush straight after concealer and foundation and then setting the whole lot with a translucent powder, or as I like to use it for my brides I apply and blend out my cream blush (really really blend it) and then I use a very light and natural blush over the top of my cream product to add dimension to the cheeks while looking very natural. Let me know in the comment section down below if you would like to see a blog post dedicated to this technique.
It is important to note that because this is a highly pigmented product it is always better to start by applying a minimal amount of product at first and then adding as you go along. It is much easier to add more product than it is to remove products if you applied too much.
In conclusion I tried it and I LOVE it!
Have a beautiful day.
