Stila Convertible Colour Trio in Cool

Monday, June 24, 2013

I've been eyeing up the infamous Convertible Colours by Stila for quite some time, but always spent too much time um-ing and ah-ing over which shade to buy. That is, until a couple of weeks ago when I heard about their trio palettes and just knew that I had to own one. There are two palettes available, 'Cool' and 'Warm', each consisting of three shades - two classic favourites and one exclusive, limited edition shade. Perfect for an indecisive girl like me! I knew that they were selling out pretty fast so I headed straight to my local Space.NK and managed to snap up the last palette they had in stock, which luckily was the cool toned offering that I'd decided on. Clearly, it was fate!

The 'Cool' palette contains Peony, Lillium and Cherry Blossom, housed in sleek black packaging with a generous sized mirror for on-the-go touch ups. Cherry Blossom, the limited edition shade, is a cool toned pink. Lillium is a pinky-peach shade, and Peony is a slightly warmer, brown-toned peachy nude. All of the colours are very wearable and flattering, especially on my cool-toned pale skin. The Convertible Colours are marketed as a "lipstick and blush in one", and while they perform adequately on the lips, it's as a blusher that they really shine. The formula is creamy and very slightly glossy, giving a sheer, natural looking glow to the skin - although they are buildable if you want a stronger colour. Application couldn't be easier - I dab a small amount onto my cheeks and then blend with my trusty Real Techniques Stippling Brush, but they work perfectly well with fingers too. If I'm going for a natural look I dab some of the excess onto my lips and call it day! Fuss-free and fast - my kinda product. 

So, to sum up: versatile, beautifully coloured, and extremely wearable. What's not to love? I've been using this little palette non-stop since it came home with me and I'm certain that I'll continue reaching for it most days throughout the rest of the summer. You can pick up a palette for £23, which I think is decently priced considering a single shade (containing a little more product) costs £16. Whether you're already a fan of the Convertible Colours or a newbie like me, I would definitely encourage you to check these lovely little gems out. You won't be disappointed!

  2. The shades in this palette are unreal!! When I first saw the picture, I thought they were matte powder blushes! They definitely look nice and creamy. I love the idea of it being a trio....so you don't have to buy three separate ones!

  4. Since my first buy of Gladiola (the insanely bright orange) a few weeks ago, I have been absolutely besotted with these. I'd also recommend Gerbera, the most perfect peachy pink! Tempted for this too x

  5. I didn't know they did these as a trio! I think I'd be more inclined to buy this instead of one shade because then there's more of a chance that I'd fall in love with the colours and not just the formula! I also really like the packaging, it looks really classy :) Thank you for sharing!

  16. ahh i really want one of these palettes! i have the convertible colour in gerbera and it's SO beautiful, definitely one of my favourite blushes ever. i have my eye on petunia next and then probably this cool palette. i'm really pale so i'm just not sure if peony would be too dark on me but cherry blossom is so pretty, and it's limited edition! i'll have to wait a bit until it's reasonable for me to buy 4 new cream blushes (um, never) but i'm sure i'll end up buying them in the end. they're too pretty and the products are too good to pass up.

  22. This looks like a really handy palette to have. I already own two of their cream blushes and they are really nice and glowy. Sounds like a bargain too!
