‘ello ‘ello lovely readers!
Today I bring you a review of one of my favorite “simple” makeup products. Stila Convertible Color is just the thing I need when I am in a rush, to lazy for a full makeup look, or just looking for the right pinch of color for my cheeks!
Stila Convertible Color is available in a slew of fantastic shades to suit any skin and complexion type. I believe most shades are flattering on all skins tones since the colors are so transparent and sheer yet natural and pigmented.
Convertible Color is supposed to be your one stop shop for adding color to your cheeks and lips but I personally only use it on my cheeks as I find it feels quite weird on my lips and some of the colors just don’t work well.
Convertible Color quite reminds me of a Tarte Cheek Stain in a compact but with fewer touch ups inbetween uses! The texture is almost gelly like with a creamy base and it lasts ages on me. I rarely have to run into the washroom to layer on some more it just lasts and lasts and lasts. It also gives me a great illusion of looking like I’ve had about ten hours of sleep when I’ve only had about two! My cheeks look dewy and fresh upon application. The completed look always makes me look gorgeous and flawless! My favorite way of using this is after finishing my morning face wash routine (scrub, tone, moisturize)! If it’s a weekend and I’m just running out to do errands I have a quick shower, tie my hair up, wash my face, moisturize, and slip some Convertible Color onto my cheeks and away I go minus foundation! Simple, Easy, Fast!
As I said early this does quite remind me of Tarte Cheek Stain but the texture is slightly thicker and almost sticky when you first apply but as your skin warms the cream it sinks in quite nicely and the sticky feeling subsides. The difference is if I use Tarte Cheek Stain I’ll be touching up five times a day where as with this it lasts from morning to afternoon and beyond!
Overall, it’s a fabulous little product and definately makes life in the cosmetic world a whole lot easier!
