Stila Custom Color Blush is a pH-Based powder that supposedly takes the chore out of choosing your perfect shade of blush. You see, it creates the perfect shade of personalized blush for you.
It doesn’t work.
I tried the Self-Adjusting Pink shade last year when the product was originally introduced and I loved it. Formula, pigment, etc…it’s a nice blush all the way around but as far as adjusting to be my perfect shade of pink? Nay I say.
This year, Stila introduced a new Self-Adjusting Coral shade and I was on that baby because I’m all about corals, peaches, etc…Love those shades not only because they look rather nice on my cheeks but also because it’s a fab color for Fall.
Let’s take a peek at Stila Self Adjusting-Coral Custom Color Blush!
A self-adjusting shade of coral blush that adjusts to fit any skin tone.
I personally don’t feel the self-adjusting shade formula works for me as the color is true to pan on my cheeks (maybe a little lighter or a little darker depending on how heavy you are with your hand) however, it might just work for you but in my experience I have little success with blushes and foundations or other makeup products that promise to be my perfect shade of color. Honestly, blush, no matter the color or formula, will look different on everyone depending their tone…! Outside of this minor rant the blush is a winner hands down for me.
This shade of coral is a deep, warm shade of poppy. The color is very bold and vibrant in the pan and comes across as a warm coral on my cheeks. The color is unique enough to want to own in my opinion as it’s darker than any other shades of coral/peach I have in my collection. In some aspects the color reminded me of the Too Faced Full Bloom Blush I recently reviewed in Who’s Your Poppy? but Stila’s version is way richer and warmer. The finish has a hint of sparkle but nothing too dramatic that doesn’t easily blend out. I find the formula blends easily onto cheeks, has a silky, lightweight feel, and builds easily so you can go from a lighter stroke of peach to an intense darker shade of coral with a sweep of your brush.
The color feels very unique to me and a brief rush through my stash showed that I didn’t really have anything like it even though I imagine you’ll be wondering if it compares to popular shades like Coralista, Orgasm, etc…I can safely say none of these colors are a match and the color proves a difficult one to dupe.
The entire self-adjusting shade thing doesn’t quite work for me but the idea is fun and hey, it could work for you but count me on the doubtful side!
- Those seeking a warmer shade of coral blush with a bolder formula that can be used lightly or boldly.
- Those who like and look best in shades of coral, peach, poppy, etc….
- Darker skin tones (this will look incredible on those with olive or tanned complexions).
- Very fair skin tones (practice caution during application as the shade is pretty bold for those with fairer skin).
- Those expecting the perfect shade of self adjusting blush (In my experience the shade doesn’t adjust and seems to apply true to pan if I’m using a heavier hand during application).
Overall, Stila Coral Custom Color Blush is just a much of a success for me as the pink version and well worthy of a haul for those who love a warmer shade of lovely coral. The color is beautiful and unique to my personal stash and I find it gives my face a flush of healthy color. I think warmer skinned ladies will adore how this looks on their skin as well and it’s probably best suited to such a skin type due to it’s bolder color pay off.
A most perfect shade of coral for Fall.
