I’ve been sitting here for about 5 minutes now trying to remember if it was this Convertible Colour, or Petunia that I was given by someone because the shade didn’t suit them. And also whether or not that friend was the fabulous Em. I still can’t remember, so on to the review… I have been wearing the Stila Convertible Colour in Gerbera practically every day lately. It’s smooth wearing, easy to apply and the colour is a really gorgeous natural light apricot/peach on fair skin. It also lasts really well and I am still left with colour on my cheeks at the end of the working day. Apologies in advance for the swatch, it’s rather heavy handed as there was a bit of fluff in the compact (can I blame my beauty blender for this?) and I went a little crazy trying to get it out, so when I swatched a lot of product was applied at once.
I have been using my beauty blender to apply it to the apple of my cheeks and then adding highlight with either NARS Orgasm Highlighter or the Benefit Girl Meets Pearl. Perfect summer cheeks in my opinion! I also really love the packaging of the convertible colours. They looks so pretty in the pan, I almost want to have them out on display. I’ve never used this on my lips (despite it being a dual-use product) but I’ve heard that it can be quite drying if you do wear it as a lip colour, so be wary of that. The Stila Convertible Colours are available for purchase in Australia at Mecca Cosmetica, and retail for $48 AUD.
