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!
