Stila Convertible Color Cream Blush/Lip Tint in Peony
Today I wanted to introduce one of my favorite cream blushes – the Stila Peony Convertible Color Dual Lip and Cheek Cream. In the pan, Peony may not look too exciting, but applied, it adds a rosy, very natural-looking color to both the lips and the cheeks.
I would describe Stila Peony Convertible Color as a muted rose shade that leans on the warmer side. I love how easy it is to build up its intensity on the cheeks. You can choose to have just a light wash of color or you can achieve a deeper, richer rose tone simply by adjusting the amount of layers you use or how much you blend it out.
How to Apply Stila Convertible Colors
For blending on the cheeks, I recommend using a brush, particularly one that’s made for cream products like the MAC 130 Short Duo Fibre Brush (this happens to be my personal brush for applying and blending cream blushes due to its size and denseness).
On the lips, one layer will give you a nice opaque finish that fits into the nude-rose lip color shades.
Here’s a swatch of Peony on my wrist (I’m NC-25 in MAC for comparison):
My Review + A Quick Look
The Stila Peony Convertible Color Blush leaves a dewy finish when applied on the cheeks. There is no shimmer or glitter in this blush, just a nice wash of color.
My favorite part about this Stila blush is that it stays put all day on the cheeks, which is sometimes rare when it comes to cream blushes. You don’t even need to set this with setting powder or a powdered blush to make this last, so you get to keep the sheen without risking longevity.
In the above photo, I’ve applied Peony on my cheek (twice to build up the color a bit), and blended it out with the MAC 130 brush for a natural glowy look.
