Since it arrived, Stila Convertible Colour in Gerbera has become my go-to cheek product. It's effortless and goes with everything. I love that I can apply it with either my fingers or a brush (I've been using the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush) without any issues. Sometimes cream blush can be a little daunting if it's overly pigmented or goes on a little patchy, but Gerbera simply sinks into the skin to give a softly luminous, healthy-looking, natural flush. Pigmentation is excellent (you really only need a small amount each time) and the texture is non-sticky and a little bit thick, but easy to sheer out and blend. It does fade by the end of the day, but it's also perfect for popping into the handbag for any touch ups you might want to make, especially transitioning from day to night makeup.
Gerbera strikes the ideal balance between peach and pink and has a pastel quality while still remaining relatively bright. NARS Deep Throat is more pinky-red with a subtle gold sheen, while Benefit Coralista is more orange with a slightly frosty, luminous gold pearl. Swatched alongside Bloom Sheer Colour Cream in Coy, it's hard to tell the two apart, except that Coy is perhaps a fraction more red and not as pastel as Gerbera. On the cheeks, Coy appears slightly darker and more red-toned, and isn't as smooth and uniform in application as Gerbera, perhaps due to a drier texture that doesn't blend as evenly.
Although the Convertible Colours can be used for both lips and cheeks, I found Gerbera much too pale and very unforgiving and drying on the lips. On the cheeks however, this is probably the best cream blush I've tried, and if the staying power were longer for this particular shade, it would be faultless. It's definitely exceeded my expectations and I'm looking to pick up one or two more shades in the future, especially the newly released Sweet Pea, thanks to Tiffany's extremely convincing post.
