L-R: Gladiola, Petunia, Camellia and Rose
Cream blushes are something i thought i'd never get on with, but now they're a firm favourite in my collection and i own quite a few. My most owned cream blush type has to be the stila convertible colors. The wide colour variety means there's a colour for almost everyone, and i still have a couple on my wishlist, but for now i feel as though i have a good selection.
Gladiola is a bright true orange, and although scary in the pan, when blended out it turns slightly more peachy and wearable. This colour is perfect for summer, and i love it paired with a bright lip and minimal eye makeup. Petunia is a pink/coral shade which gives you a light flush of the colour in the pan. This shade looks lovely as a wash or built up to be more of an intense colour. I love this colour for simple makeup days or paired with a bright pink lip. Camellia is a peachy brown colour which doesn't look very attractive in the pan, but when applied to the cheekbones gives you a lovely bronzed glow, along with slightly contouring and adding a bit of peachy colour to your cheeks. I don't wear this one enough as i forget how nice it is on, but i love this paired with an intense smokey eye or a bronzed look. Finally is Rose, a colour which I've never actually worn. The reason for this is that its a burgundy kind of rose, so i deem it to be more suited for autumn/winter. When blended out its nowhere near as deep as in the pan, but it leaves a dark rosy flush to the cheeks. This colour would look great with a nude or dark dip.
The formula of the convertible colors is fantastic. They finish is creamy rather than powder, which means that they keep your cheeks looking glowing and healthy, and it also helps them to look more natural and blended. I love the fact that they can also be used as lip colours and they do work really well that way, but i prefer them on the cheeks. As for wear time, i'd say they last a good 5 hours before needing a touch up, maybe longer the heavier they're applied. The packaging is also great, as the outside casing really reflects the colour on the inside, being almost identical The slim size and built in mirror also means they're great for travelling or applying on the go. I love to keep one of these on me at all times for lip or cheek touch ups. Costing £16 they aren't the cheapest blush, but they are a two in one product and the great formula definitely makes them worth it for me!
