Stila Convertible Color Dual Lip & Cheek Cream Trio: Warm

It's not often that a product taunts me as much as Stila's Convertible Color Trio for warm tones has done for the past 6 weeks. Not having owned any Color Convertibles up to now, despite hearing the grá they receive, not least from our very own Stila Freak, Mags, Gerbera has been at the top of my lust list for an age. When Janie Howarth, Stila's international make up artist gave me a quick squizz at both of these trio palettes though, I knew one had to be mine. 

Stila Convertible Color Dual Lip & Cheek Cream Trio: €26
Considering the Color Convertibles are €21 each, €26 for the three is not too shabby at all. There are two palettes available, Cool and Warm and each consist of two favourite shades and one exclusive limited edition shade. Once I saw that the elusive Gerbera was included in the Warm version that was my decision made. 

HoneySuckle is the Exclusive LE Shade Here

Creamy soft and versatile these colours brighten up lips on the go but their real selling point is in the sheer colour they give to cheeks. HoneySuckle (a matte peach pink) is flattering to most skin tones, Camelia (a warm tan brown) doubles beautifully as a cream contour and Gerbera (Peach pink with rose gold shimmer) is a stunning blush that would rival Nars Orgasm or Sleek's Rose Gold with ease. 

Despite being off work for the past 5 days I've used this palette daily, even when I never made it out of my slanket and slipper socks and that might tell you quite how much I'm loving it. Stippling is your friend when applying cream blushes and this trio is no different, they take a minute to perfect but they're 100% worth it. 

Housed in heavy plastic with a large mirror inside. It's ideal for the mála!
Both the warm and cool palettes are Limited Edition from Stila so I'm advising you to hot step it to your nearest counter should you feel the want. You'll find Stila stocked in Boots Liffey Valley, Harvey Nic's Dundrum and online here from Nordstroms (though expect to pay hefty delivery charges). 

Right now I'm fighting the urge to pick up the cool tone version are you feeling the urge for either? 

**Update** Stila.co.uk have these palettes available online this week AND they do free shipping to Ireland! If you're feeling the want then that's your best bet, lovelies x
