Gerbera Lip Swatch
Can you believe that I was a Stila virgin until late last year?! I'd heard so much about the convertible colours and seen so many rave reviews that it was only a matter of time before I added one to my ever growing collection of cream blushes and what do you know? All it took was a Feel Unique discount code to push me over the edge and ta da, Gerbera was mine!
There are a whole range of colours to choose from but naturally I went for the peachiest of them all which ended up being Gerbera but I definitely have my eye on a few other colours (Petunia and Gladiola are just screaming out to be on my cheeks come spring!) This is a dual lip and cheek product but to be honest with you I rarely use these kind of products on my lips anyway but it's definitely handy to be able to and saves some space in our already crowded make up bags! The texture isn't like any cream blush I've tried before and is almost tacky which had me worried that I'd end up with a sticky face but once applied to your cheeks it just kind of melts in with a little help from your fingertips or stippling brush to blend it out. It's such a pigmented product and a little dab of it goes a long way to giving you a beautiful peachy flush but because it's so pigmented it's easy to go in with a bit too much product and ending up with a not so natural looking flush! This is a really pretty lip shade but I'm not a big fan of how it feels on my lips so will stick to using it on my cheeks for now but if you can stand it then it looks lovely.
I've only ever used this on my winter white skin but I can see me falling in love with it even more in the spring when I've got a bit of colour to my face when all I want in life is to look dewy and glowing and I'd be lying if I said that I don't think there will be a couple more of these on my dressing table by the time the sun shows its face!
