I love blush and I have over $50 colors so I know what works for me and what doesn't. That being said, blush isn't the type of thing you can buy and know right away if it works or not. Often I buy a blush, love it, and find out it changed color throughout the day. Or, that it only works when I have a certain makeup look. Blush can really shift and take on new tones depending on your current skin color, your glasses, hair, makeup, etc. This blush is one of the few exceptions. On me it reads as a neutral pinky beige. On my light olive skin it looks like ladylike, healthy, and so natural that people have stopped me to tell me I look great with no makeup on (even though I was wearing this and concealer and mascara). I can use it closer to the apples of my cheeks for an energized look or dab is closer to the back of my cheekbone and higher up for an elegant look. I love this blush so much that I've given two away, picked up the mini during Sephora gift promotions, and have purchased it twice for myself. Unfortunately, longevity isn't the best. I give it three hours of wear time on my skin although I have the type of skin that "eats" makeup. I keep my mini with me to refresh throughout the day.

Oh, and I never use a brush but I often use a Beauty Blender to apply this. The best way to apply creme blush, in my experience, is to tap it onto the cheeks using the middle and ring fingers. If you pat and don't rub you leave little bits of skin peeking through the blush and it looks SO natural and So sexy. The way we blush is when blood rushes to the capillaries underneath our faces and if you look closely you realize it's not just a block of color. I think that's what gives a natural blush that beigey/browny color. Try it :)

Oh this also:
-Doesn't have a scent
-Leaves a barely noticeable tackiness for a few hours after application
-Doesn't work well on the lips, dried mine out and makes them paler
-Great packaging that reflects color of blush making for easier retrieval
-Helpful mirror compact
-Will break if dropped.

Ah Stila Peony Convertible...1 of their best-selling most famous products after the Kitten merchandise but this is quintessential Stila at its best! I own some Stila MU, not a ton of it, but in addition, 2 Convertibles palettes (sunrise & sunset which have 5 convertibles each) they neglected to include peony! Just guess they figured ev1 had it already (?) I did not so I ordered it separately. It is so cute! I'm a sucker for anything w cute packaging & anything that will travel well/throw in my bag. Check, check! Thx 4 the mirror, Stila! The color is a nice pink brown it's the nicest color IMO of the convertibles I have ten others due to those palettes. The convertibles are staples for me! I will rebuy until the end of time lolz long wearing, natural flush & good lip color. I fill in my lips w Kevyn Aucoin The Flesh lipliner "Medium" 1st. Use any MLBB pencil. I love versatile products. The pan looks small thou I think within 6 mos I will be done w it way down into pan? But I got 10 other convertibles ;-)

The color is beautiful and great for my fair/medium skin that's particular lackluster in the winter months. My biggest complaint is that I really need to pack on this color in order to see anything. I also have Petunia and that color payoff is far better, which is why I'm surprised I really need to keep applying just to get the faintest bit of color. I only recommend this for fair skin tones because medium/deep skin tones won't see anything. Apart from that, this color is perfect. Not too obvious. With my dark hair and fair skin I feel very "English rose" when wearing this color. It doesn't make my cheeks too red or pink. I just wish it was more pigmented. I'm not sure I'd buy again because I'd be too tempted to find another cream blush in the same family that's more pigmented.

I use this blush in the winter bc it's creamy but I've used it in warm weather too. It's a very "natural" colour--I skip contouring my cheeks when I use it. I don't really use it for lips as the colour is too pale for that when I use it on my lips (I'm not a fan of pale lipsticks) but the texture is moisturising. Overall it's a great blush though and one of my faves.

This stuff is amazing. I got it as a sample and I honestly thought, why would I put this thick cream on my cheeks? I use a lot of powder foundations so I was terrified. So I put it in the bottom of my makeup case and I just opened it and thought, why not try it?

I'm angry I haven't used it before. the color is super pretty, reminds me of my natural lip color but instead, on my lips and cheeks. Beautiful.

I just bought the bright summery color trio from Ulta and I can't freaking wait to try them.

Having used this little gem for many years I thought that I had better write a review. The colour is perfect for my complexion, it blends like a dream and wears for hours. I have had this in my make up kit forever and could not imagine my routine without it. Buy it its amazing.

I have bought a few convertible colors from Stila, and Peony was a repurchased shade. I've enjoyed the way that the product is creamy and blends well. I've applied this with my fingers straight from the compact, or with a stippling brush. The color is a very flattering dusty pink that gives me a healthy look, but isn't overly bright or unnatural. I know that it is advertised as being a lip and cheek color, but I find it unsanitary knowing that I apply this to my cheeks (sometimes with my fingers), thus I can't review if I were to put it on my lips. Other things that I like about this blush are that it isn't sparkly or too sheer- you can build up intensity and the finish is so natural. I switch between a couple of blushes depending on the season and looks- this is a great summer product and is nice for quick and easy application.

A few cons: as this is a cream blusher, the product doesn't have a ton of staying power. In fact, I have recently been layering a powder blush on top of Peony in order to help it stay, but I still noticed that my blush was mostly gone by the end of the workday. I have noticed that it does transfer to my phone when talking (eww), so it doesn't set completely and that is why its all pretty much gone by half day. I have a few patches of dry skin and the wear does fade unevenly from these spots. Also, sometimes I have a slightly tough time opening the compact- it has a small indentation that can be hard to pull open- I've gouged my fingernail into the pan more than once!

Overall, I've finished a compact and started on a new one. I am happy enough with this product to repurchase even with some of it's cons.

I use this solely as a blush, rather than a lip product. I dip my brush in it very lightly and tap it onto my face and blend it out with a different brush so as not to apply more product. This gives me a very natural look that's kind of a mixture of nude and dusty rose.
The finish is dewy and it is long wearing on me.
The packaging is cute in my opinion. I would like to get my hands on more shades!

i like my powder blush to be as pigmented as possible so that only the tiniest amount is needed, to avoid a powdery look. although as for cream blush i find convertible color has just the right amount of pigmentation, i can swirl my fingertip in it a couple of times, don't need to be too careful. don't know about the bolder shades though as the two i have are gerbera and peony. it's an old fashioned emollient texture, not overly creamy, with a natural dewy finish, not one of those velvety cream to powder ones. that being said it can be used on the lips too but you won't find it especially moisturizing. peony is a muted cool toned dark pink, no shimmer. really sophisticated. on fair skin it can act as a subtle contour when applied to the lowder cheek area. i actually look like i have cheekbones(which i don't) when i wear it, and really natural looking. while bronzers and contour powders never look quite right on me.

I never tried a convertible color, but when I purchased a Stila eye palette, this was given as a free gift. It was small--I was very surprised by the size--a little bigger than a quarter. I tried it thinking it would go so quickly due to the size and was glad I didn't spend $25 on something so tiny but I'm happy to report that a little goes a long way (and also found out the one I was given was a trial size--the actual product is the size of a sand dollar.) Even this quarter sized product will last a really long time for me! One pat with the tip of my index finger is enough for booth cheeks. It blends so easily and as someone else said "melts" into your skin for a natural look. Its a medium dusty pink color. As a lip color, it's slightly lighter than my own lips and comes across as a pink-tawny color, so I only wear it as a lip color when paired with heavier eye makeup, otherwise I look washed out. It doesn't feel heavy; it's texture is light. Unfortunately, it doesn't last very long on my lips, but that's ok because I like it as a blush better. I liked this so well, that I went out and bought a full size in the Poppy color!
