Stila Convertible Color in Petunia

Cream blushes and I have a complicated relationship -it seems I like to do things my own way! It's said that cream blushes are more convenient to use during winter (when skin is more dry and their texture clings to it better) – I don't like using them during winter at all! My preferred time of the year for cream face products is spring/summer season because I love how convenient, multipurpose they are. I hate slappin’ my face with tons of make-up when it's more than 20°C outside, everything feels sticky and I certainly don't wish for make-up clogging up my pores. Cream blushes, highlighters, bronzers etc. are usually non-oily, lightweight and sheer – the way to go in my case as the application and reapplication is a breeze and you get a natural wash of color/highlight/bronze on the skin. If a cream blush performs equally well on the lips as on the cheeks? Well, I'm sold! And what if that exact cream blush resides on the cheeks of the lovely Alexa Chung? Yup, the exact shade? Gimme, gimme, gimme – that's all I can say! Stila Convertible Color Lip & Cheek Cream in Petunia (£16 via feelunique.com) resides on my cheeks and lips 24/7 ever since I've purchased it and I cannot seem to get enough of the shade. Housed in a very pretty, very girly compact adorned with flowers it's a vision for any beauty lover out there.


Zvanicni status moje veze sa kremastim rumenilima glasi – ‘komplikovano je’. Problem je u tome sto ja ocigledno volim da kontriram uopstenoj vecini u nekim stvarima. Obicno se kaze da je kremasta rumenila najbolje koristiti tokom zime (posto njihova tekstura pase ceso isusenoj kozi tokom tog perioda) – ja uopste ne koristim kremasta rumenila tokom zime! Meni najvise odgovaraju tokom sezone proljece/ljeto posto mi se svidja njihova multiprakticnost, kompaktnost. Naprosto ne volim nositi slojeve i slojeve sminke ako ziva u termometru pokazuje vise od 20°C posto je koza vruca, cesto ljepljiva i u svakom slucaju cu pokusati izbjeci zacepljenje pora mjesanjem sebuma sa sminkom. Kremasta rumenila, hajlajteri, bronzeri itd. su obicno nemasne teksture, lagani su i prozracni – u mom slucaju idealna kozmetika u datim vremenskim uvjetima. Nanosenje je gotovo za cas posla a rezultat je prirodan dasak boje/iluminacije/topline na kozi. Ukoliko bi kremasto rumenilo zaista jednako uspjesno obnasalo funkciju kremastog ruza za usne? U tom slucaju cu pitati – gdje da potpisem? A ako se ispostavi da je meni najdraza nijansa favorit i divne Alexe Chung? Dodajte mi casu vode i ventilator, molim! Stila Convertible Color kremasto rumenilo i ruz u nijansi Petunia (cca 40KM preko feelunique.com) odmara na mom licu gotovo svaki dan otkako ga koristim i izgleda da mi nikako ne moze dosaditi. Upakovano u jako lijep, zenstven kompakt vjerujem da ce se dopasti mnogim sminkoljupcima.

These creamy cheek/lip duos have hit stardom a long, long time ago but I've never had the chance to try them out myself, until now. Stila follows a very cutesy visual, and this Convertible Color follows. The compact houses 4.25g of product, is made out of plastic but is very sturdy and the clasp is really tight. Inside the lid you have a decent mirror for touch-ups but it's not convenient for applying make-up in general. Now, I've seen dozens (if not hundreds) of swatches in my pursuit of a suitable color match for me. I wanted something brightening, uplifting and something that'll show up on my medium skin without looking ashy or clown-ish. I think Petunia is the perfect match! The perfect peachy-pink skin-brightening shade is ideal for mimicking flawless and pinched-her-cheeks natural flush. It also works equally well as a creamy lippie. Pigmentation is really, really great here! You need the tiniest dab to perk up the skin or to make lips pop. It isn't scented, it doesn't contain shimmer yet it imparts a beautiful satin finish which dries to an almost matte on my cheeks (which are dehydrated) and the lasting power is fab. I'd say that 6h are granted on my cheeks and 2h on my lips which indeed is great. As for application methods – I like creamy 2in1 products for their convenience. I apply them with clean fingers and have no intention on faffing around with cotton buds or what have you. Beautiful, convenient, pigmented and convertible – Stila got things down! I may even return for more shades…

Stila kremasta rumenila/ruzevi su odavno dozivjeli vrhunac slave no nikada ranije mi se nije ukazala prilika da ih i sama isprobam – sve do sada. Stilu, kao brend, uopsteno prati jedna lijepa i simpaticna estetika, sto je takodjer slucaj i sa Convertible Color kremastim rumenilima. U pakovanju se nalazi 4.25g proizvoda, pakovanje je izradjeno od plastike no iznenadjujuce je cvrsto a mjesto zatvaranja pouzdano. Unutar pakovanja se nalazi omanje ogledalce koje mozda jeste zgodno za usputni pogled na make-up no ne i za nanosenje istog. Pregledala sam desetke (ako ne i stotine!) swatcheva razlicitih nijansi tokom moje potrage za onom koja ce mi odgovarati. Zamislila sam boju koja ce osvijetliti ten, osvjeziti ga, koja ce se vidjeti na kozi, da nece ciniti moj ten toplog podtona sivkastim niti da djeluje neprirodno. Mislim da je nijansa Petunia upravo ono za cime sam tragala! Radi se o idealnoj breskvasto/ruzicastoj nijansi koja automatski cini kozu svjezijom, odmornijom te uspjesno imitira izgled svjeze zarumenjenih jagodica. Jednako uspjesno funkcionise i kao kremasti ruz za usne. Pigmentacija je zaista, zaista odlicna! Potrebna je malecka kolicina uz pomoc koje koza zablista a usne dolaze u fokus. Nije parfimirano, ne sadrzi shimmer a uspjesno cini da koza djeluje sjajno (ne masno) posto se nakon par minuta na mojoj kozi izrazi satenski finish. Trajnost je zaista zadovoljavajuca – na obrazima je boja izrazajna sigurnih 6h dok se na usnama zadrzava 2h. Po pitanju metode nanosenja – razlog zbog kojih volim kremasti 2u1 proizvod jeste upravo njegova prakticnost i jednostavnost. Takve proizvode uvijek nanosim cistim prsticima i stvarno nemam namjeru niti spremnost da prolazim kroz gnjavazu i komplikacije sa kojekakvim alternativama. Prekrasno, prakticno, pigmentirano i multiprakticno – Stila je napravila pun pogodak sa ovim kremastim rumenilom/ruzem! Mogla bih se cak vratiti po jos nijansi…
