Stila Convertible Color in Petunia

Long time no see, beauties! Lots of things have been happening this December and though I had a few posts already prepared, I haven't even had the chance to schedule or publish them. My birthday is tomorrow and I'm not very excited about it. It's not the fact that I'm getting older (because that is a privilege that some people don't have) but the fact that it has been a bittersweet year; more bitter than sweet. Anyhow, today I wanted to show you this beautiful Convertible Cheek/Lip Color from Stila called Petunia.

As many of you know, I'm a fan of cream blushes. They melt into the skin and look incredibly natural. Plus they usually last longer than powders. I have encountered cream formulas I've disliked (like the Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blushes which are too greasy for me) so when one really works it's always a delight. The Stila Convertible Colors are great. They're very similar to the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge cream blushes: on the thicker side (compared to, say, NYX or Illamasqua cream blushes) but highly pigmented, long lasting, and easy to blend
Petunia is a beautiful watermelon pink. It's yellow based and will look great on all complexions, specially warm toned ones. I like to apply my cream blushes with fluffy synthetic brushes (like the Real Techniques Expert Face brush) or large stippling brushes. Warning: you only need the tiniest amount. Usually with cream blushes, one tap is enough for both cheeks (specially true for Bobbi Brown PRs).

Let me know if you love cream blushes too. Have you tried the Stila Convertible Colors? The other shade I'm eyeing right now is Gerbera.

  6. I have not tried these. I have very few high end blushes. I agree that creams are so nice and natural looking. Hope you have a nice bday tomorrow, regardless of the bitter times.

  10. Sorry to hear that your year hasn't been the best Coco but at least with your birthday that can mark the start to a fresh new year for you that is sure to bring much more happiness :) In regards to the blush though this looks gorgeous; I've had my eyes on the stila convertible colors for the longest time now but could never decide on a color… this may be the one!! It looks beautiful on you.

    1. Yes, I'm excited for the New Year and a fresh new start. Although I have set my new plans in motion before 2014 because one should always be motivated for a change and not wait to make it like a new year's resolution. xx

  15. I have this colour, it is just so pretty and stunning for the summer time. I wear this on both my cheeks and lips for a matchy matchy look with just a smudge of brown eyeliner. I find it looks super youthful :)

  16. This is the first Stila convertible color that's actually appealed to me! I'd heard such good reviews but put off buying one because I didn't like many of the colors. This one, however, I love. Thanks for sharing it!

  19. Beautiful shade! It's so natural and such a rich pinky peach, it looks like Natural Beauty from Tarte but cream! I really really want to try a topshop cream blush! I've only own one in a trio from sleek but I haven't use it yet! Your complexion is glowing in that photo and I love that mint sweater!

  30. seirously these products are the shit. nothing quite like having a great lip and cheek pairing for when you're rushing out the door. the color stays on my cheeks for the most part of the day

  31. I've only begun to up my comfort level with blushes and I think creme is the way to go. It's perfect for avoiding patchy powder, and can be applied in a more natural way, which sheers out the coverage so you dont look like a clown -- which evidently makes me look more chubby cheeked. I snuck into a Sephora to try these out and they looked pretty sweet!
