Get hauling and come back to tell me about it? I’m trying to be good and not order…maybe….sorta….
Is it terribly weird that while I was testing out Stila Convertible Color Mascara I was thinking of convertibles and the Hoff?
I dunno what it is but convertibles just remind me of that catchy little ditty by David….I hear he’s big in Japan.
Stila Convertible color is embracing the crazy tube technology that’s taking the mascara world by storm at the moment. Not fibers kids but tubes!
The unique polymer formula encases puny lashes in a tiny smudge-proof, water-proof “tube” that binds each lash and offers longer, defined lashes that can take on the world and the Hoff if worst comes to worst without flaking, smudging, or creating terrorizing raccoon eyes!
I don’t claim to know why Stila dubs everything with convertible lately but the Muse likes to think they too were thinking of the Hoff and his hawt car when creating this mascara. The Stila Convertible Mascara is a dual-ended brush that works at offering volume to both top lashes and lower lashes for that no lash left behind feeling (our x-President would be pride I’m sure!).
I generally like the idea of a double ended wand that performs separately to lengthen my top and lower lashes. Considering that each brush is made specifically for separate functions I somehow wish that all my mascaras sported a similar feature as I always have a hell of a hard time getting to those naughty lower lashes without causing a hot mess. The upper lash applicator is a nice size brush that grasps lashes quite well and sweeps them upwards and outwards while the secondary lower lash applicator is thinner in size and has a straight line for snagging those hard to reach lashes.
The mascara isn’t particularly wow inspiring. It does volumize and it does offer length but it’s nothing too dramatic. I recommend it for anyone that doesn’t like the irritating feeling of fiber based mascaras as this is a nice light weight formula that will offer good volume to puny lashes without weighting them down or making them feel “hard”. For me personally tube mascaras are probably thee most awesome find considering how much I hate the feeling of fiber mascaras.
This offers plenty of bells and whistles such as being smudge-proof and water resistant while offering definition, length, and volume but I can’t help but feel the overall effect wasn’t particularly amazing. I’m not too big a fan of a more natural lash look and this is exactly the finished result that Stila Convertible Mascara offers.
All in all quite a nice product but I prefer L’Oreal Double Extend Mascara as it’s cheaper and offers more of a dramatic result than this did. It was worth testing out just so I could compare “convertible mascara” to David’s popular “Get Into My Car” song. Bless that man.
I’m a big lover of Stila Cherry Crush so when I first got the chance to try an early release of Stila Pomegranate Crush I was dashing around circles in excitement. Stila Cherry Crush scored major points with the Muse so she had all sorts of high hopes for Stila Pomegranate Crush.
It just so happens that I fell hard for Stila Pomegranate Crush almost instantly and think it deserves a re-review for Spring!
The product comes housed in an awesome little click pen and applies easy to both face and cheeks with a quick stroke of the brush. I love the packaging however I did have some reserves about using the same item on my face that I had just used on my lips….sooooooooo to solve my dilemma and my anal germ obsession I’m happily sporting two of the pens one of which I use on my face and the other on my lips.
Pomegranate Crush is deeper in color when compared to Cherry Crush. It’s a much richer pink and gives cheeks that perfect natural flush that makes you look like you’ve just been kissed, just stepped out of the cold, or just been pinched on the cheeks. Taking all three of those things and bottling them up into a click pen is sheer genius. Pinched cheeks are absolutely essential for a youthful, fresh, natural look in the Muse’s opinion and very flattering for Spring.
The formula is a gel base and not at all drying on the lips or the skin. I did think Cherry Crush was tastier where as this doesn’t have too much of a scent or taste. I actually like both Pom and Cherry Crush better than I do Benetint as the packaging is super travel friendly and the color is more natural and pigmented.
Stila Pomegranate Crush is one of those great items to have in your purse for a quick burst of color onto cheeks to make you go from the stress of eight hours of work to the natural, freshness of a well rested you. It’s a simple, little to no makeup look that makes life simple and makes you look fabulously gorgeous. Can’t name many products that do all that with a simple twist of a pen!
