Stila Convertible Colour in Petunia

Stila is a brand I have often come across online, and for what seems like forever I have had my eyes on one of their Convertible Colours, and I finally picked one up in the colour Petunia. I have been warming towards cream blushes in the last few months, and I know I will be able to enjoy them a lot more once this horrible heat passes!






Petunia is a bright, warm toned pink. The formula blends out beautifully and does not unsettle my already applied foundation as other cream products have for me in the past. I usually apply this blush with the Real Techniques Stippling blush, however patting it onto my cheeks with my finger also gives a similar effect. I think the thing I enjoy the most about this cream blush is that the colour is amazing on my skin tone. It gives me a beautiful flush to my cheeks whilst not emphasizing redness. As someone who so often neglects blush for having that effect, Petunia is becoming a well loved shade.


Swatched Heavily, Blended Out

The overall effect is a dewy cheek without glitter or shimmer, a finish that is really flattering on my skin. I think one of the best things about this product is how it performs equally as well on cheeks as it does lips. It is not the most moisturising formula in the world but it's not uncomfortable either.

The Stila Convertible Colours retail for $40 each from Mecca Cosmetica, or you can pick them up for a mere $22 from Beauty Bay, with free shipping to Australia. I may pick up a more nude shade of this cream blush in the future, if I feel the need to add another to my collection.

  2. This shade is so perfect! I've never really taken much notice of Stila cosmetics - probably because they aren't terribly accessible in Australia - but I think I should from now on!
