Oh, Sweet Pea – Won’t you be my blush!?
I have a weakness for cream blush and when I love a formulation, I make a point of collecting every shade I can get my hands on. Imagine my delight when I discovered that a new shade of Stila Convertible Color for lips and cheeks was about to be introduced to the collection. I may or may not have pumped my fist and yelled “YES!” when I saw it online at Sephora. Twas a good day…
Ladies, I present to you…Sweet Pea!
The latest Stila Convertible Color hue is a gorgeous medium pink shade. It’s brighter than Lillium, not as pale as Petunia, not as red as Rose, and not as purple-based as Fuchsia. Sweet Pea is a soft and lovely pink shade that packs a little oomph.
As with all Convertible Colors ($25), the texture is creamy and blends down to a sexy, yet natural flush. And while I love, love, love them as a blush, they also can be used as a lipstick.
Some of you ladies might recall a previous cream blush from Stila, also named Sweet Pea, a Rouge Pot that had a whipped mousse texture. This is not even remotely the same shade as that previous blush.
The whipped mousse version of Sweet Pea was a scarlet red shade, while the Convertible Color is version is a less intense, but no less gorgeous pink.
If you are like me and have collected the Stila Convertible Colors, there’s a new shade you’ll want to dance with tonight. If you are just searching for a perfect pop of color, Sweet Pea is for you. Heck, if you have cheeks, Sweet Pea is for you.
Readers – Am I the only person who collects Stila Convertible Colors? Or the only person that hears this Tommy Roe classic when I hear the words “Sweet Pea?”

Krista resides in the middle of nowhere with her bff/hubby, an obscenely big-eared dog, and a puppy that makes feral capuchins seem mellow. She has an irrational fear of ax murder, owns more than one machete for home defense/the zombie apocalypse, and goes to sleep serenaded by the sounds of the Chupagobbler, a mythical turkey beast that roams the woods around her house. She also has an obsessive love of Tom Selleck’s moustache that is, quite frankly, alarming.
