Mercury has started to drop in Delhi and with the cold weather comes dry skin. I love to apply makeup whenever I go out but powder products tend to make my skin dry during winters. I do apply loads of moisturizer underneath which makes me look oily sometimes. This is when cream products come to the rescue. Though I am not a cream product fan and so I don’t own many of them but I do have some which I use regularly during winters. Today I will be sharing my views about ‘Stila Convertible Color Peony’ which is a cream product marketed as a multi-use product that can be used both on cheeks as well as lips.
Price: $25 for 4.25 gm of product, also available on lookfantastic.com for less than INR 1500
Our ingenious two-in-one lipstick and blush is loaded with creamy, translucent color—for simply irresistible lips and cheeks—on the double. This makeup bag must-have features a fresh burst of radiant color that blends beautifully to create a gorgeous glow. Just tap onto cheeks and press onto lips for a fast makeup fix anytime.
Tips to Apply:
- For easy application to cheeks – press your ring finger into cream and gently rub against thumb to warm up the color – then tap color into cheeks, blending outward and upward.
- For brush application to cheeks, apply with Stila Brush #33 or a firm blush brush. Use very light strokes to achieve a flawless airbrushed effect.
- For lip application, apply with fingertips or Stila Lush Lip Brush.
The blush comes in a round pan with a pinky rose gold kind of container. The inner section of the lid contains a full-size mirror which is always a plus. The container shuts tight with a click which makes the product travel-friendly. The sleek size of the container makes it easy to throw in the product in a handbag and it does not occupy much space.
My Experience with Stila Convertible Color Peony:
It has been almost two years since I got this product, but I didn’t use it much in the first year as I wasn’t into cream products. This year when I was searching for something different to try as my blush, I came across this baby lying at the very end of my vanity. I thought of giving this a try.
I always assumed that applying cream blushes is kind of difficult, which is apparently not true. Stila Convertible Color is super easy to use and the product blends effortlessly. The shade I have is called Peony which is a very neutral easy to wear kind of shade. Peony is a shade that goes well with any kind of look and is perfect for everyday wear. It is not a bright, on the face blush, but it does give a nice glow to the cheeks.
Being a cream product, it does sometimes make me look greasy on the cheeks but it usually happens after 3-4 hours of application. If I set the blush with a powder blush on top, this time extends one hour further.
Stila Convertible Color is not just a blush, but it can be used on the lips too. The product is creamy and makes the lips feel soft, but as the shade Peony is a natural looking color, it does not impart much color to my lips, it just gives them a good shine. I personally don’t like to use this as a lip product, but if you like, this can be used on the lips.
The product is not very easily available in India, though it is available in Sephora’s in India, but it is hard to find the product online. I do like the product would love to try some more shades from the range. As this is the only cream blush I own, I can’t compare it to other cream blushes in the market, but I am sure that there would be many cream blushes that are available at a fraction of the price.
Pros of Stila Convertible Color Peony:
- Beautiful and Travel-Friendly packaging
- The formula is easy to blend
- Comes with a good size mirror
- Decent staying power
- Natural everyday, easy to use color
Cons of Stila Convertible Color Peony:
- Not very easily available
- Can make you look shiny, especially if you have oily skin
