The Stila Convertible Color Blushers are one of my all time favourite makeup products, so when the Stila Complete Harmony Lip & Cheek Stick collection launched, I couldn’t wait to try them to see how the formula compared to their original cream blusher compacts.
“This creamy, buildable color blends beautifully for weightless color application – just tap and glow – for lips and cheeks. Complete Harmony features universal shades that complement all skin tones, plus a Bronzer and Highlighter, all formulated for use anywhere, any time!“
The Stila Complete Harmony Lip & Cheek Stick is described as having a creamy and blendable formula which claims to blend beautifully for weightless colour application, and can be just tapped onto the cheeks and lips.
There’s four blusher shades, one bronzer shades and a highlighter shade, which Stila claim are universal to compliment all skintones, but that’s not the case with just one bronzer, and just one highlighter shade.
The Stila Complete Harmony Lip & Cheek Stick is a very chunky stick, and it’s so unnecessarily bulky, as the cream stick only takes up a small amount of the chunky stick.
It’s also really poorly designed. As you can see from the above photo, I twisted up the stick to take photos, and when twisting it down, the entire cream stick just crumbled and got mangled up, by purely twisting the mechanism.
This particular shade is Sheer Lillium, and I chose this shade because Lillium is my favourite shade of the original Convertible Color Blushers, and it’s just as beautiful in the Stila Complete Harmony Lip & Cheek Stick format, as it is in the Color Convertible format.
Lillium is describes as being a nude pink, and it’s the prettiest light pink. In the Convertible Color range, Lillium is more nude than pink, but it’s pretty regardless.
When you first ‘swipe’ the blush stick on the cheeks, it looks very bright and garish, but the ‘sheer’ claims are spot on, as it is very sheer, buildable, and subtle, which is exactly how I like my blush, and it wears nicely throughout the day too.
