    HAD TO HAVE IT | Stila’s Gerbera

    I don’t know about you all, but I am a sucker for a pinky peach blush. And yes, let’s acknowledge there is difference between peachy pink, and pinky peach ;-). Stila’s Convertible Color Dual Lip and Cheek Cream is something I had passed by in the shops for years, but only recently was I truly tempted to pick it up, in fact I had to have it, thanks to some lovely bloggers/YouTubers I follow {I am talking to you Lily, Anna and Alix!

    I picked up Gerbera as it seemed to be the colour I just couldn’t stop obsessively swatching on my hand. It was the perfect blend of pink laced with peach and imparted such a gorgeous glow with out any shimmer. I love the idea that this cream blush doesn’t instantly go chalky and powdery like so many do. I prefer to pat this on with a synthetic brush like the Real Techniques Expert Face or Contour brush, but it also blends beautifully with a few pats of the tips of your fingers.

    Gerbera adds just the perfect amount of innocent colour paired with a touch of bronzer for that gorgeous sun kissed youthful look. It is most definitely a successful purchase in my mind and the fact that it could be used on the lips in a pinch (I’d toss on some clear gloss too for some added moisture) makes it super handbag and travel friendly!

    I picked mine up from my local Shoppers Drug Mart for $33 CND, but it can be found on StilaCosmetics.com and Sephora.com
