Review: Stila Convertible Color in Peony

Stila Convertible Colors are lipstick and blush two-in-ones that are well loved by cosmetics addicts everywhere. I have been holding off because I have had such terrible luck with products that supposedly go on both your cheeks and your lips. I would rather have two products that work than one product that kind of works.

However, I am never one to resist a free sample. This Sephora sample in Peony, a flattering, ruddy nude peach, had my name on it.The product is well-pigmented, but it can easily be blended out to be as sheer as you wish. This, combined with its dusty, natural-looking color makes it perfect for “No-Makeup Makeup” looks.

Another pleasant surprise: this product doesn’t dry out my lips.

That being said, I don’t think that this is a perfect product. It doesn’t seem to cooperate with my brushes, and sticking my fingers in my makeup is… unappealing. Additionally, the wear time is disappointing. I got perhaps an hour out of the lip color, and only a few hours out of the blush before my greaseball face rebelled against even the faintest touch of color.

Finally, at $25 for 0.15oz, it costs a pretty steep $166.67 per ounce. (For comparison, a Benefit blush comes in at $100 per ounce, and it doesn’t rub off in a matter of a few hours.)
A very light touch of Stila Convertible Color in Peony on my lips and cheeks.

Readers, I will not lie to you. This review has an alternative motive: I want to tell you about the sale that Stila is having!

So, something something the Lakers something something Laker Girls something FIFTY PERCENT OFF OF EVERYTHING ON THE STILA WEBSITE. The code is LAKERS50 and I believe that it lasts until tomorrow. Also, don’t forget to check eBates (that’s my referral link, if you are feeling generous). Ebates will get you an additional 5% back on top of this already generous discount.

oh hehe, my friend picked this up recently too and we just reviewed it as well!

 

oh no it already ended! I tried to order foundation and the code wasn’t working. 🙁

 

3. Oh no! Sorry to get your hopes up.

4. If you’re ever tempted to try this again, I’ve had great luck with sponges or beauty blender type products to apply it as a blush. Although I have dry skin so this product may just be better suited to my skin than yours.
