I bought this blush a few weeks ago after chatting to Helen from thelovecatsinc when she said that the Stila Convertible colours are her absolute favourite cheek products. I had been looking at them for a while and wasn't sure about them but Helen saying they are her favourite gave me the final shove to buy one. I chose Lillium because it was the most neutral colour, and most of my blushes are brighter and more intense. So technically I needed it...
It was a toss up between Lillium and Rose but, Rose was a bit more intense and rosy in colour (would you believe?!) and I wanted something that I would be able to wear on the days that I don't want to look like I'm wearing makeup. With my new found love for Lillium though, Rose could be next on my list to buy! Although, I don't know, a lot of the colours appeal to me! Stila is available from lots of online stores, but I bought mine from Boots for £16.00.
The convertible colours from Stila are designed to be used on your cheeks and your lips, but as much as I love Lillium the colour just isn't right for me on the lips. On my cheeks it's a very close match to my natural lip colour, but when applied to my lips it looks a bit muddy. Lillium does have a brown undertone, so that is probably why, but the texture overall felt okay on the lips (I didn't keep it on for long because I didn't suit it). If I got another Convertible Colour I'd definitely have a bash at wearing it on the lips.
