Stila Convertible Color in Sweet Pea.


Though the Stila Convertible Color formula is certainly not new to the beauty market by any means, Sweet Pea is the most recent shade addition to the veteran lip and cheek cream lineup.




Sweet Pea is a gorgeous vibrant pink, and as with all the Convertible Colors, it has a healthy, dewy finish; definitely not cream-to-powder, which I somewhat dislike (why not just use a powder then?). The formula is a tiny bit tackier than other cream blushes, but as a result, the lasting power is phenomenal. Also, despite the slightly stickier consistency, it doesn't feel sticky at all once blended onto the cheeks. I prefer to apply it with a brush, but it applies and blends easily with fingers as well.

On the lips, the finish is slightly shinier than the traditional satin lipstick finish, and it doesn't feel thick like you might expect based on the consistency. In actuality, it can be a bit drying and I don't like to wear it on the lips for too long, though it is pretty.

Below, I'm wearing Sweet Pea on my cheeks and my lips.



The Stila Convertible Colors are seriously my latest obsession. I also have the shades Petunia (featured in this post), Lillium and Peony, both of which I received deluxe samples of from Sephora ages ago. Sweet Pea, in particular, is absolutely perfect for spring and summer. I love how brightening it looks on my cheeks and that it's a flattering shade on the lips as well. I kinda want the whole line-up now. Overboard much?

I purchased the Stila Convertible Color in Sweet Pea from Sephora for $25.

  2. I really liked these many years ago when I first walked in Sephora but over time I realized i wasn't much of a cream blush girl so I haven't touched it since. I do think the shades are VERY pretty and I love the pretty compact it's in. And of course you look great =)

  6. Hey Tiffany, Sweet Pea is such a happy bright pink! You're right about it being perfect for spring and summer! Can't get over how bright it is on the lips yet how natural it is on the cheeks! Win-win!

  11. I am SO glad I'm not the only one that feels that way about cream-to-powder formulas!! They do last longer on me than a true cream formula but the texture is just all wrong for me most of the time and I feel like that type of formula has a tendency to go patchy on me when I try to blend :/ I have a deluxe sample of Peony that I have tucked away but now, I am totally going to wear it later!! Can't wait to play! If the formula works for me, I am definitely going to check out Petunia and Sweet Pea! :D

  12. Hi Tiffany! This shade is so beautiful, and pigmented! I love it on your lips! Too bad it dosnt wear great on the lips. Always tastefully Gorgous!

  13. Oh my gosh, I love it on your lips! It looks so creamy and lovely and its like a pinch on the cheeks! I've yet to try any cream products but I'd love one from Bobbi brown or NYX to try!

  14. Sweet Pea is so lovely on your lips! And cheeks! But especially lips - really brightens up your whole face without being "too much" ya know? You're stunning Tiffany!

  15. Such a pretty colour, I love how it looks on the lips too though pity it's drying on the lips. I find that with Illamasqua cream blushes as well, they look so creamy on the cheeks but once on the lips they dry out in no time!

  16. *gasp* what a pretty colour!! i can easily see why these have become your latest obsession!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. That color looks so good on your lips!!! Too bad it can be drying. I am still hesitant to wear cream cheek colors.. I think I'm just too lazy hahaha

  18. I'm loving stila convertible too! and i actually like their packaging :) i recently fell head over heels in love with the shade "camellia", such a natural shade that even works ever so slightly as a contour on my cheeks! definitely wanting more of the shades in the line hehehehehe

    ReplyDelete
  19. This is gorgeous on you!! I keep going back and forth on this one because it looks soooo different in store, so I'm glad you have such great photos in your post. I unfortunately have more vibrant pink blush than I'll ever wear so I'll probably pass on it. But part of me still wants it simply to look at :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have a few bright pinks too, but I couldn't resist it in cream form :) Glad you found the photos helpful!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I like the packaging too! So cute. I've seen Camellia before but never gave it a second thought. I'll have to swatch it next time since you love it so much! :)

  22. Thanks, Julie! Yeah, I wish it was more hydrating on the lips too, but it is a little better if I wear a lip balm underneath. Not as good as lipstick though. I used to be the same way about cream blush, probably because I didn't know how to blend it well either, haha. Now I love them though! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thanks, Faye! I can't wait to add even more shades to my collection :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh, I had never even tried the Illamasqua cream blushes on my lips before! That's a shame they're drying though. Like these Stila ones, I love the Illamasqua blushes' dewy finish on the cheeks. Thanks for the nice comment, Lilit! :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I totally know what you mean! It's a bright and cheerful pink without being an actual "hot pink." Just wish it was more hydrating on the lips though, but I love it anyway! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks, Sharlynn! I want to try the Bobbi Brown ones too. I heard they also have a nice, dewy finish, which I love. I've tried the NYX ones and they're such great quality, especially for the price!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hi Taylor, thank you so much for your sweet comment :) I wish it wore a bit more comfortably on the lips as well, but it certainly won't stop me from using it on the lips every now and again!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I agree with you about their tendency to go patchy...I experience the same thing. They just don't seem to blend as well as true cream formulas. I actually don't have a problem with most powder blushes lasting on me, so I tend to prefer to just use those over cream to powder because they're quicker to apply and blend. Let me know what you think about the Convertible Color formula - I can't wait to hear what you think, Becca!

  29. Thank you, Kelly! Let me know if you end up getting it :D

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yay, glad you hear you love it too, Lily! I haven't used Lillium in ages...I might have to bring it back into my daily rotation soon :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thanks, Sunny! I agree - I love how semi-bold it looks on the lips but that it can be sheered out on the cheeks too :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hahah, thanks for the support, Becky! I'll definitely do a post on any new shades I pick up :D

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ahhh, really? What do you think?? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thank you, Dovey! I guess you can understand why I love them so much :D

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks so much! The two deluxe samples I have of Lillium and Peony were some of my first makeup products from Sephora! I only started to be really into cream blushes more recently, but I can understand why people might not like them too :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Delurking now. :) Looks great on your lips, Tiffany! I have Peony but it is way too light to show up on the lips so I use it as blush primarily. They are oddly collectable -- I want Poppy really badly but hardly need it, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thank you, Stephanie! I think the packaging is pretty cute too :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thanks, Liz! And I know what you mean about Peony...Lillium is the same way on me - works on my cheeks but a bit pale on my lips. I want Poppy too! I think something about the cute and colorful packaging makes it seem like a desirable collectable piece :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. POPPY! do it lol. it is pretty lol. and yay sweet pea! i'm loving this one too

    ReplyDelete
  40. Sweet Pea is beautiful on you!! I keep seeing these around, so maybe someone is trying to tell me something!! LOL! I don't blame you for wanting the whole collection...hey...when something works so well why not! Doooooo it :-)

  41. Hi Tiffany - could you describe the color difference between Sweet Pea and Fuchsia? I'm trying to decide betw the two, and I'd love your expert advice! FYI - I have betw NW 10-15 skin in Mac- I'm very cool toned and fair. Thanks so much, and keep up the awesome work!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hahaha, thanks for your support, Gummy! :D I think I want Gladiola next. I thought I wanted Poppy, but after swatching it again in store, I think it might make me look like I have rosacea.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hi Shelly, I only swatched them side to side one time, so I'll try to remember. If I recall correctly, Fuchsia is more cool toned than Sweet Pea, and it was also sheerer than Sweet Pea. Since you are quite fair, you might want to go with Fuchsia? But honestly I think you could make Sweet Pea work too, you'd just have to use a tiny amount and blend a lot. Hope that helps! :)

  45. Such a lovely Spring shade! I can buy Stila convertible colors down here but haven't dipped into them yet for some (unexplained) reason. I think I need to rectify that!
