Beauty Battle: Stila Convertible Color VS Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge


It's that time again kids! Time for a Beauty Battle! Taking two of my favorite cream blushes and battling them again each other should make for an awesome fight. Stila Convertible Color versus Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge to the death!


Let the game begin!

Let me tell you this is sadly not much of a battle as it's easy enough to see who will win here but let's have a go and see what you think after I've butted these two against each other!





Stila Convertible Color comes housed in a cute little palette with embedded flowers on it's lid and a nice full size mirror for on the fly application. Packaging wise Stila has it going on. When compared to Bobbi's very minimal black pot design there isn't much of a question which is the cuter of the two. Placing cuteness aside Stila Convertible Color has alot of catching up to do in the price and size department. At 0.15 oz in size with a price tag of $25 USD, Stila has alot of work to do to catch our attention aside from sweet packaging.


Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge def doesn't have the cute factor in it's ring but it has the size and the price tag to please! No mirror here and no cutesy flower compact but a $22 USD price tag and a size of a whopping 0.38 oz makes Bobbi Brown a fierce competitor for Stila Convertible Color. So that's over double the size of Stila plus $3 bucks cheaper? Uh oh Stila look out!




Both formulas are incredibly long wearing and can easily be considered almost an identical product.

Stila takes a sucker punch from Bobbi Brown in the color department. With merely 7 shades and Bobbi coming up on 10! Things are starting to tip dangerously in favor of Bobbi's side here. Stila defends itself with a quick punch to the left and snaps up about LE color releases for Stila Convertible Color but can we swayed by cute packaging, a few LE colors, and a high price tag? Probably not.

The winner?

Obvious isn't?

Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge wins this beauty battle kids! Great formula, long wearing, a huge size for a nice price tag makes it the champion in this fight. Sorry Stila...it was obvious from the start you weren't going to win this one. We love you but your size and price leaves a bit to be desired.

How about you?

Is Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge your winner?

Or is Stila Convertible Color your champion?

Tell the Muse!

I kinda prefer a cream stick formula like the ones shiseido and pout(used to) make:-D

Haven't tried bobbi brown but the stila is a little bit drying for an otherwise perfect formula!

i completely agree with you on all the great points that makes BB score above stila, BUT for me the one thing that made me switch from BB to stila was that the BB pots make my lips extremely dry.
great review muse!

Love the creativity of this Main Event, Muse. You rock.

I'm rockin' the BB Pot Rouge in Pink Truffle right this second, and fight the Dry Lips Challenge with a roundhouse kick from Nivea's Kiss of Shine on the top.

Love,

Hmmm... now that you've mentioned BB Pot Rouge as the one with the best bang-for-buck item, I'll just get one of those instead of the Stila Convertible Compact I've been lemming for. Thanks!

hi musey,long time no comment! haha...I just got back from japan :D and talking abt blush on..I found a great japan product called Yojiya (yojiya.co.jp) I love their concealer and the blush on. its not a cream blush on, but i think its very good. the bad news is its only available in kyoto, narita and kansai airport -_-" but i thought you'd like to know and maybe some of your japan friends can help you to get the products :D it worths a review IMO ^^

I love stila better than bobbi brown, just because when it goes on the cheeks, sheered down with a better color, but oh well I only have stila's gerbera and bobbi brown's calypso coral. I like them both, just prefer stila.

I've never tried BB, only Stila, and I'm very happy with the 2 I have. Both came in sets so didn't cost nearly as much as the asking price, so the price difference isn't an issue.

hi read!

I like Stila too I just thought the price on BB was considerably the better deal :-D
