Stila convertible color dual lip & cheek cream in Lillium

Ah, make-up. I must admit that over the years I haven’t been that interested in make-up all together. I used to love it. It was something that brought me a lot of joy. But when I grew older, I somewhat lost this. Yet, a while ago now I suddenly felt the urge to buy some make-up. To try out some new things. To do something interesting with my look, to change it up a bit. One of my new products was a product by Stila. Which is interesting as I never had a product by Stila before.

This is what Stilla says about their product
Our ingenious two-in-one lipstick and blush is loaded with creamy, translucent color—for simply irresistible lips and cheeks—on the double. This makeup bag must-have features a fresh burst of radiant color that blends beautifully to create a gorgeous glow. Just tap onto cheeks and press onto lips for a fast makeup fix anytime. Winner of Instyle’s Best Cream Blush for 12 years.

What do I think
I truly love it, it’s such a magical color, it’s a pink with a blueish undertone. It looks as if I am naturally flushed. Which is great, as I naturally don’t really look flushed even when embarrassed. I enjoy the fact that the product can be built up. I now use a very light hand and blend it out a lot. In summer when I am tanner, I will be able to built the product up more for the same pretty effect. I am however unsure when you have a deeper skin tone if it will show up enough. Peony and Magnolia might be a better fit in that case.  I looked at all the colours and they are all so pretty. I really hope that there is a colour for everyone, I do think that cream blushes are a bit more forgiving in that sense. I think it’s always the best to look at your own products to see what will fit best and what you like. As undertone plays such a massive part in how lovely a blush looks. I do think the products needs  a bit of work when you put it on to make it look just right. But once it does, it stays. It gives a beautiful colour to my skin, I really like this blush. It has quickly become my favourite, which is use on a daily basis (when I put make-up on that is). I think this is a lovely blush with a formula that I really enjoy.

I think the packaging, the box as well as the blush container is so pretty. It’s a joy to look at and for me. I like it when a beauty product looks pretty. It might not be the usual thing to say but you pick up something beautiful quicker.

The swatches

As the inside of my arm is lighter than my face, the blush doesn’t look as bright if I would apply it like this. Like I said it needs a bit of work but to me it gives a beautiful outcome.

But I would just check what would be the cheapest/best prize for you. 

Lots of love, Melissa
