A bit expensive, but it lasts a long time. Nice&natural shade.
This is a beautiful product, in a real pick-me-up colour.
In the compact this looks like a rich, deep red - I've found the most effective way to apply is to lightly press my fingertips onto the product then lightly dab it onto the apples of my cheeks - this gives a more natural look than rubbing it in.
The result on my medium-pale skintone is a beautiful rosy-cheeked flush of colour, pinkier than it looks in the compact, and giving possibly the ultimate just-got-in-from the cold look that is soooo pretty - I've only seen comparable results with Benefit's 'Benetint'.
On the lips the effect is equally pretty, especially when topped with clear gloss.
On the downside, this product doesnt seem to last too long - I need to reapply a few times a day, so I normally apply blush over the top (Bobbi brown 'Blushed' goes well), and I mean to invest in some translucent powder.
The price is extraordinarily high at £24, but the tiny amounts needed for an effect compensate for this. I've had the compact for several months and there's barely an indent.
Compact is cute (though not especially glamourous) with a useful mirror, but teh lid doesn't close properly sometimes and as such the product can get covered in a layer of dust / grime etc.
Overall then, if you are looking for make up to give a pretty, wintry effect that is bound to result in a few compliments, 'Poppy' would be an excellent choice.
A little goes a long way! I think this is the more pigmented of all CC! A deep berry shade, it gives such a natural flush to the cheeks. Also great for lips when topped w/ gloss (like berry bold JT!)
I had this awhile back but I don't think I ever wrote a review for it.. so here goes. It's a deep red in the compact but goes on a sheerer cherry color that I apply sparingly on my cheeks - a little goes a long way! It looks really nice on the lips too btw, giving a bee-stung stain yet not drying my lips out.
The colour is a deep cranberry red, and when applied to cheeks gives the perfect rosy glow. Best to be be sparing with this product though, otherwise you might get undesirably jolly red cheeks. Looks nice as a semi-satin lipcolour, too. And of course, as with all Stila compacts, the packaging is just adorable.
Got the generous GWP size from Gloss.com. The tiny compact is SOO CUTE! I like the color better than the gerbera but its still not the best color for me. Looks like a bricky peach color not at all like the swatches on sephora or gloss.com. But it was free so I will shut up now :)
A little to dark/bright for me. But I love these blushes...the lighter shades are much nicer for me.
I've never been a Stila fan, but I kept looking around for a blush alternative. I have dry skin, so didn't want powder...they never stay on, and you can always see the powder blush sit on my dry cheeks. The convertable color is probably one of the best things I've used for blusher. "Poppy" looks a little scarry in the package, but is wonderful on. A perfect "pinched" look! I apply over my powder.
aah, I am so glad I bought this. it gives my light, golden/olive/bronze untertoned skinned a natural flush and is soooo much better than powder. I apply it after my foundation by rubbing my finger lighly in a circle on the compact and then pat (like a nurse checking for viable veins)until it is well blended on my cheeks. I can't believe how much better it looks than anything else i've tried. I always hated blush, or at least thought it was a necessary evil, until now. a good investment, if you get the right color, you should use it everyday, and it only takes the teensiest amount. This should last about a year if I use it every day.
This was the first stila blush that I ever bought. It is very bright in the pan, but makes a nice rosy color on face. Works best in the winter time when the air is cooler. It helps give your face that lovely flushed look. When used on the lips, I suggest using a lip balm under it and a lip gloss over it as it is quite dry. My only problem with this product is that it is terribly dry in general and a bit hard to spread. I think that this is a fantastic idea but would be better in a creamier formula.
