Cream blushes can be a fickle product to use, especially over certain foundations. They’ve been known to move products around, mainly because they are oil based. That is essentially what makes them a cream. However, the Stila Convertible Color Cheek Palette is different – in a good way, and I think worth trying for women of all ages. Here’s why.
Stila Convertible Color Cheek Palette Review
This palette is marketed for use on both cheeks and lips, so I ordered it through Amazon to give it a try. It comes in 2 palette choices with 5 shades in each for $39. I purchased the Sunset Serenade palette. The shade names are: Petunia (coral pink), Peach Blossom (coral peach), Gerbera (peach cream), Camellia (peach caramel), and Twilight Rose (warm marsala) shades. It comes in a sturdy, gold, plastic case with a generous sized mirror that is great from travel.
Since I have aging, dry/combo skin, I find that cream blushes give my cheeks a more youthful appearance. This isn’t the case with every cream blush product I have tried, but generally speaking, creams give the fresh glow that I prefer. The Stila Convertible Color palette is no exception and I love the subtle flush that it provides. The formula is very buttery with a cream to semi-powder finish. They are quite sheer when applied, but the opaqueness is buildable.
For the lips these are a no-go. Since they set to a semi-powder, they dried my lips out and were uncomfortable to wear, even for a short amount of time. The coverage is minimal at best and they generally just didn’t look good on my lips. I’d say this is not a dual usage palette.
Overall, I think this palette is wonderful for people of all ages. It is best suited for light to medium skin tones, but light would get more usage. It’s roughly $7.50 per blush when broken down in price. If you’re in the market for a great blush set, give this a try!
- The Route 44 Sonic Cherry Limeade is one of my favorite drinks ever. I also like the diet version of that drink as well.
- Last week, when we went house hunting, we met an older couple showing us their home. Their kitchen and bathroom counters were made of concrete that she hand-painted to look like granite. They then coated it with a clear coat. It was beautiful and so unique!
