There are some gorgeous new shades of Stila Convertible Color coming up – this time on an M&S exclusive. The shade above is Dahlia – it looks really dark in the pot but is a lovely kiss of raspberry on the cheeks and lips that looks quite natural.
I’m not a huge fan of double-up products – they often do neither thing terribly well, but Stila has got it sorted with their Convertible Colors. I’ve used Dahlia as a lip stain with a sheen over the top and also as a cheek shade – it does need careful blending as it’s slightly on the dry side compared to a traditional formula creme blush which usually just glides. My tip would be to go with a small amount to start with and add more – it’s a proper pain to go too much and then have to blend it down.
I love the way that all the Stila Convertible Color is named after flowers. I don’t have a drop date for the new shades (there will be several) at M&S but I’ll update as soon as I do.
