Stila Convertible Colour in Lilium

I want to start this post by saying that I really like the Stila Convertible Colours in general and I've posted about Stila CC in Orchid before. I was really excited to receive Lilium in an event bag and wanted to love it like my other cream blushers. It's a pretty petal pink shade with a hint of beige when swatched. On paper this sounds like the perfect shade for me. Unfortunately, I find the colour doesn't do much for me when applied.

I have quite high colour in my cheeks and as Lilium is quite pale and delicate, I find it doesn't really show up very well against my natural colouring. It's not light enough on my colouring to be a highlighter either. I find that it creates a sheen on my skin but because of the lack of obvious colour the sheen seems to accentuate the imperfections in this area (I really wish I could ignore those eye crease, can I pretend it's lack of sleep?).

This is simply a case of the colour not working for me. I still intend to add some more of the Convertible Colours to my collection and at £16 they're quite reasonably priced. Stila products are available from Boots, Escentual and BeautyBay.

  1. I actually really like this on you Jane! Perhaps it photographs better than it looks in real life? I also like your eyeshadow :)

  2. I like the look of this colour- plus the fact you can use it on lips, cheeks, eyelids.. great travel all in one! Looks fab on you in the picture- although perhaps it looks different IRL? xx

  3. I actually think that this colour suits you! It looks lovely on your skin. I will be checking these out next time i am in boots becasue I have heard a lot about these stila convertible colours!

    Great post, hope you had a nice christmas :D

  4. Such a pretty colour, looks really nice on your skin x x

  5. I have always loved this color!

  6. :3 This looks like a rather wearable shade! Though, like you, i'm less than impressed by how it (doesn't) show up.
