Hello beautiful!

Considering the fact that I really don't have anything to do at the moment because uni is over for the summer. I really should be blogging a lot more, nonetheless, I noticed that my last post was 5 days ago! Obviously, I'm unlikely to be a blogger that blog everyday because I'm such a slow typer...but I'm hoping that I can produce at least a post every 2 days. Well, here is me hoping anyway. I really want to know how some bloggers can post everyday! If you have any recommendation, please let me know. 
Anyway, I'm quitting my jibber-jabber. Let get on with the product. 

Stila Convertible Color Dual Lip and Cheek Cream Trio | Cool

This palette has been my staple everyday product ever since I bought it. I have literally used it everyday that I wear makeup. I fell in love with it ever since Sandy from Absolute Beaut mentioned it on her blog. I always want to buy everything she mentions. This little palette comes into 2 different tones: Cool and Warm. I have decided to go to the Cool version because I just thought that the selection of shades were a lot prettier. It even have Lilium, which is probably the most talked about shade. Plus, I thought the selection of shades in the warm palette were a bit dark and too mature for my liking. Therefore, the Cool palette came home with me.

This Stila palette is very sleek, I mean, it's very little and shiny. You can literally take it around everywhere with you as it really doesn't take up that much space. Although, you don't actually need to take it around everywhere because with this cream blusher, you don't need to reapply it throughout the day because it is that long-lasting. It also comes with a giant mirror that is as big as the palette itself too, for that little touch-up during the day if you really need to. A couple little miffs I have with this palette is that one: I find it really hard to open when I have long nails (although, that might just be my uberly weak nails) and two: the actual blusher pans are quite tiny, I can barely swirl my stippling brush in there.

The Cool Palette comes with Cherry Blossom (limited edition), Lilium and Peony. All of these shades are very usable. Cherry Blossom is gorgeous for when I want to young and fresh looking rosy cheeks. Lilium is just beautiful for everyday wear. Peony is super pretty for when I want to create earthy tone to my face.

Cherry Blossom, Lilium and Peony.
Cherry Blossom is a limited edition shade for this palette, whilst the other two are from their standard range. I would describe Cherry Blossom as blue tone pink, Lilium is peachy coral and Peony as orangey brown but it blended out beautifully.

Here is how they all look once blended.
There is no denying that  Stila Convertible Color Dual Lip and Cheek Cream are absolutely utterly gorgeously beautiful on the cheeks. I really really really hate using them on my lips. Don't get me wrong...I tried, I really did. I tried using it with a lip brush, I tried using it with my finger to pat them on my lips, I tried using it after applying my lip balm, I tried to apply some gloss on top but nothing helps. They just make my lips feel really dry and it emphasises all the fine lines. When I used it after lip balm, it just slid and slide into the inner bottom lip where the top and bottom lips meet which isn't a particularly good look. I mentioned this before on Twitter and some people have agreed with me, so I know that it's not just me. Although, I do feel like maybe, I'm not doing something right?! So, if you have any recommendation on how to make them work on my lips, please let me know.

Having said all of that, I do love this palette as blusher, I adore them. It applies so easily, blended so well and the colour lasts for hours (again, I applied my makeup early in the morning and when I went to remove my makeup at night, the colour is still there!). So, you are probably wondering if I would recommend and repurchase this?! Well, let me get up to the rooftop and screams "YES and YES!!". I honestly don't care that it doesn't work as well on my lips because of how beautifully it works on my cheeks, I'm totally willing to overlook that minor flaw. So, get out there and buy this palette before it's all gone because £23 for 3 shades! That's good value for money.

Have you tried any Stila Covertible Color Dual Lip and Cheek Cream before? Which shade is your favourite?

You can pick this up for £23 from Space NKBeautyBayFeelUnique and ASOS.

  8. This is a great review. Thank you!

    I have my eye on the Warm Convertible Trio but I've only seen one review of it so far. It was positive but another glowing review does help. Peony looks gorgeous!

    I'm not sure what I'll do when I buy it, but I'm sure I won't want to use these on my lips. I hate the idea of blurring that line and they probably look better on cheeks anyway.
