I've been conveting a Stila Convertible Color Dual Lip and Cheek Cream for months now. These products were raved about all over blogs as well as YouTube, so much so they're now considered a cult product, so when I received one from Islay for my birthday I was over the moon. 


The packaging is quite small but it's pretty with a small mirror for touching up on the go. It's comfortable to hold and fairly sturdy which makes it easy to throw in a bag without it breaking. At first glance it's a beautiful peach shade that lacks shimmer but does give a 'glow' to the cheek without being obvious. Cream blush formulas are something I'm leaning more towards than powder as I find powder just 'sits' as my skin matures. This is slightly tacky in consistency but it's easy to blend with a finger or a stippling brush. It's buildable too which, with a heavier application, gives it a more coral look, even slightly orange. It doesn't remain sticky though so don't worry about hairs getting trapped on your cheeks or your skin looking greasy or oily.


On the lips, whilst it looks pretty, it's quite drying. Mixed with a clear lip balm it looks more subtle and is a lot more hydrating which I personally much prefer. It's one of those shades that looks great on fair or dark skin so if you've been wanting to try one of these for a while it's definitely worth checking out this shade.


Stila Convertible Colour Dual Lip and Cheek Cream (RRP £16.00) - available from Boots, Selfridges, Space NK and Cult Beauty
