Stila Convertible Colour in Petunia - Review & Swatches

How scary does this blusher look?? It's practically neon!

You may already know about my love for the Stila Convertible Colour in Lilium, a creamy blusher which can be used on the cheeks and lips in a gorgeous vintage rose pink (see this post). The Convertible Colours have quite a glossy texture which leaves a very healthy fresh look on the cheeks and provides a glossy finish on the lips which is comparable to the Revlon Lip Butters.

I must have used Lilium everyday for about 2 months until I forced myself to share the love with my other abandoned blushers. Due to my everlasting love for Lilium, I obviously had to purchase a second shade! Obviously. As there are no Stila stockists nearby I had to rely on photos and blog swatches to choose a colour.

I finally decided on Petunia. It really didn't look that bright on the websites. Had I realised just how bright it was, I may have chosen a different one, but actually I quite like how bright and fun it is. Petunia is a bright coral-pink which creates a youthful summery look that would look particularly good with a tan! (Which I currently do not have).

My favourite way to apply the Convertible Colours is with the Real Techniques Stippling Brush. I just dab it in the pan and because of how pigmented it is I usually need to dab off any excess on the back of my hand before applying it to the high-points of my cheeks. The duo-fibre brush hairs blend the product perfectly.

To apply to the lips I usually just use my finger but you could also use a brush. The cute packaging which includes a decent sized mirror makes this a perfect product to pop in to your handbag for cheek and lip applications on the go!

I do love Petunia but it isn't quite as easy to wear as Lilium, especially in the colder months so I can imagine Lilium still being my most reached for blusher.

Have you tried any of the Stila Convertible Colours?
