Stila Convertible Color: Gladiola

There is something about orange blush that is just a little bit magical. A good orange blush can make you feel like a bronzed and glowing goddess or a delicate elfin princess.

Gladiola by Stila is no exception to the otherworldly goodness of the orange blush.

Stila Convertible Color is meant for dual use on the cheeks or lips. While a good multi purpose product is always exciting, I’m not wild about this product on the lips. Initially it looks lovely but I find that it is rather drying and the color dissipates with alarming speed.

On the cheeks however it looks lovely. The cream product leaves a very natural glow and the sheer color can be built up quite easily making this a product that is a pleasure to work with. I find that the color lasts through an entire work day but it does oxidize slightly after about four hours. I have two convertible colors and Peony oxidizes to a more bronze/orange shade. Gladiola goes a tad more orange as well but it’s less of a problem for your overall look since orange was the goal to begin with.

Overall I enjoy this product very much and the color is the real winner over formula. There are not a lot of orange cream blush options so this is a lovely find if, like me, you’re having an orange blush love affair. I do think it’s a little pricey for a product that doesn’t live up to the claims of being dual purpose and also oxidizes a bit but the color and texture on the skin balance that out for me.
