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.
