Stila Convertible Color (for cheeks and lips) in Gerbera
£16 from Selfridges/SpaceNK
Considering I am having a bit of a cream-blush love affair at the moment, a Stila's convertible color has been one of those cult products I've been desperate to get my hands on for ages, and I am so happy I finally added one to my collection. The ingenious lipstick and blush all-in-one is such a versatile product to tint and brighten your cheeks and add a pop of radiant colour to your lips. When deciding which shade to pick up, Gerbera was the obvious choice for me. It is a gorgeous, creamy, light peachy-pink shade which made my heart skip a beat the moment I saw it. The consistency is smooth yet slightly tacky and is best applied lightly with your fingertips onto the apple of your cheeks and lips, but you could use a stippling brush if you'd prefer. Despite my initial reservations about the product's tackiness, it is really lovely to apply onto the skin and doesn't leave it looking greasy or blotchy at all. Stila's color convertible is a lot thicker, more pigmented and easier to apply than the likes of NARS' multiples which can get lost in your foundation a little. Gerbera really stands true and gives your skin a beautiful colour and radiance that can be intensified by layering the product up. I really like the colour dabbed onto my lips too but it can be a little drying so best to sandwich the product between layers of lip balm.
I will definitely be adding some more of Stila's Convertible Colors to my collection as I think they are such a easy, multipurpose product to pop in your makeup bag and are ideal for those summer months when I want a more dewy flush on my cheeks, not to mention the packaging is ridiculously pretty too! What shade do you recommend me purchasing next?
