Currently those that have followed me for a while will recognize that my perpetuity favourite lotion flush is MAC’s Blushcreme in Ladyblush, read everything about it here. You’ll additionally recognize that MAC ceased it in 2014, a choice I’m still reeling from … seriously what were they thinking!!!
onwards and also upwards I have actually looked for a choice. First stop certainly was MAC’s own substitute, the Cremeblend blush, which is a totally various pet. What’s the point in highlighting a lotion blush that isn’t luscious. short, it behaves and also lightweight but it’s verging on a lotion to powder flush. Blushcremes have, sorry HAD the WOW variable. They were thick and also velvety, bright as well as highly pigmented. A little bit sticky, a little bit tacky however either way gave the face an impressive dewy radiance, and child did they last.
I won’t birthed you with my ramblings however the search proceeded onto Nars, Maybeline, Topshop … none came close. Simply when I will give up hope, Stila returned to the UK’s coasts.Stila Convertible Shades are the storage room match I have actually discovered. The look, the feel, the consistency is all very similar.
what are Stila Convertible Hues?
Basically they’re a multi-use product for lips as well as cheeks. They’re luscious, tacky, vibrant as well as generously pigmented. Offered in 9 shades, this set is Lillium, a rosey pink with peachy hint and also the colour of the compact reflects the colour of the make-up inside … WIZARD.
They’re easy to apply, I have a tendency to dab on with my fingers then blend in with a duo fiber brush such as MAC’s 188. It immediately lightens up the cheeks with a refined flush of colour; Use with a hefty hand to escalate the result. The result, a dewy, shiny radiance that lasts all the time. It blends well with other cream items too, sometimes I mix a bit of Ladyblush to magnify the pink tint or layer over MAC’s lotion colour base in Hush.
Putting on Lillium on my cheeks and lips
Here it is compared to MAC Blushcremes in Ladyblush as well as Lilicent. As you can see they look extremely comparable in daylight, however fairly various under man-made lights.
MAC Ladyblush, Stila Lillium, Lilicent under artificial light
daylight MAC Ladyblush, Stila Lillium, Lilicent
Ladyblush is really pinky, Lilicent Peachy and also Lillium someplace in between with a tint of rose.
I rejoice I have actually found Stila Convertible Tones, they get the thumbs up from me BUT none of the shades rather match my precious Ladyblush and also I’m beginning to think absolutely nothing will ever before live up to Blushcreme.
I need to begin a campaign #bringbackmacblushcremes
