I hope you all are doing great!
Peaches and shades of corals are always my favorites. Hence choosing this product was a breeze. I have always been a powder blush kind of a person, but the hype around the convertible color finally pushed me into trying out a cream blush. What’s more, this is a two-in-one product, which can also be used on the lips. Let’s find out how it fared!
Stila’s ingenious lipstick and blush-in-one proves to be irresistible. This versatile favorite brightens cheeks and lips with creamy, translucent color. Tap onto cheeks and press onto lips. The sheer tint adds an inherent glow to the cheeks while lips bloom with fresh, radiant color. A mini-mirrored compact makes touch ups on the go a snap. Our two-in-one compact holds the key to easy, monochromatic makeup. A must-have in every Stila girl’s kit.

- Apply with a firm blush brush, like Stila Brush #1, and use very light strokes to achieve a flawless airbrushed effect or apply with fingertips and blend outward and upward.
- For lip application, apply with Brush #6 or fingertips.
- Keep pastel or pink shades around the apple of the cheeks and neutral or contour colors should be blended below the cheekbones.
- For easy application to cheeks- press your ring finger into cream and gently blend ring finger against thumb to warm up the color – then tap color into cheeks

My Experience with Stila Convertible Peach Blossom Color Dual Lip and Cheek Cream:
The packaging is gorgeous. The product comes in a sturdy, plastic container, with embossed, floral design on it. The color of the container mimics the shade inside. It has a handy mirror attached, however, with no applicator
The shade is true peachy coral. On first glance, it looks dark in the pan, but upon swatching, it looks much lighter. It doesn’t have a fragrance, while the texture is soft, smooth and buttery.
There are no shimmer particles, but once I put it on, it looks like I have very hydrated skin. I have used it using both my finger and brush, and personally I love the air-brushed look I get out of the brush. I only needed to slightly tap my brush twice into the product, so that a nice flush of color gets deposited onto my skin. The color blends out really well without much effort and this can be easily buildable. It doesn’t feel sticky at all once blended and it gives a natural, glowing finish. I had it on for more than 8 hours, which is mind blowing. It didn’t make my skin dry, neither did it accentuate any pores. It just made it look like I miraculously blush peach from within 😀 Yes, that is how much I’m impressed with it.
While it does a fabulous job as a cheek product, I wasn’t impressed how it looked on my lips. It does feel moisturizing when I have it on my lips, however, I don’t like using it so, merely because the color washes me out.
It looks like a milky coral shade when I have it on, which doesn’t suit me at all. This may suit someone else, so I’m not going to cut points on that. However, what bothered me was that it accentuates the fine lines. That is a major no for me, hence the points cut are for this reason. In addition, it transfers, which is another pet peeve of mine. If layered, it easily acts as an opaque lipstick.
Since this is a dip-into kind of product, it goes without saying that you need to use a clean brush or finger to maintain its longevity. All in all, super amazing product, which only makes me want to try the rest of the colors in the range.
