Every once in awhile I get a chance to revisit a product I reviewed back when my photos were so terrible I’m a bit embarrassed to link to them. While that’s not exactly true today, I did first try the stila Convertible Color in Peony back in 2014. Today’s post features five other shades in the form of the stila Convertible Color Dual Lip & Cheek Palette in Sunrise Splendor.
The stila Convertible Color Dual Lip & Cheek Palette in Sunrise Splendor comes in a lightweight, slender gold palette with a large mirror on the lid and 5 shades of the Convertible Color, for a total of 0.26 oz of product. In comparison, a single Convertible Color contains 0.15 oz, making each shade in this palette 1/3 the size. I apply cream products like this with my fingers, but even if you use a brush I think that the pans are still large enough.
Although I usually don’t like cheek palettes, I’ve already taken my stila Convertible Color Dual Lip & Cheek Palette in Sunrise Splendor traveling with me to Wisconsin and Illinois for three weeks, and gotten plenty of use out of it. It’s really thin, compact and offers a great range of shades. The formula itself has a slightly balm-like, almost tacky consistency that does not look powdery, even when applied to the lips. It has a very natural finish with a hint of sheen. While it does work on the lips, I definitely prefer using this formula on the cheeks.
The shades in the stila Convertible Color Dual Lip & Cheek Palette in Sunrise Splendor include English Rose, a dusty rose, Lilium, a nude pink, Cherry Blossom, a bubble gum pink, Fuchsia, a bright pink, and Tulip, a deep berry. All shades are very pigmented and apply evenly but blend out to look very natural, no matter how bright.
In the above photo I’m wearing the stila Convertible Color in English Rose on both my cheeks and lips. This neutral dusty rose is the shade I reached for instantly in the palette, and it did not disappoint!
I also how to show you how wearable the stila Convertible Color in Tulip is, despite the initially scary appearance. There’s definitely something very juicy about this shade, which makes me feel a bit Snow White and is perfect for winter.
If you are curious about the Convertible Color formula but can’t decide on a shade, you definitely need to check out the stila Convertible Color Dual Lip & Cheek Palette in Sunrise Splendor. There’s also a second orange and brown-toned option, Sunset Serenade, which I’m still lusting over. I love these shades, packaging, formula!
