Jill Stuart's Reviews and Swatches

i decided to 'play' with my new JS makeup this morning and i fall deeper in love with them :D

first, the Mix Blush Compact in 03 Coral Glow. i've numbered the color cause it seems that JS doesn't have names for them invidually.

okay, i'm officially suck at doing swatch but i'm trying right? the picture doesn't show the color well, it's far more obvious in real life.

color #1 isn't quite pigmented on my skin, but i think it would be great for highlighting and of course as soft pink blusher for fair skin.
#2, #3 and #4 are quite pigmented but i love #2 the most cause i like peach color. As the #3 is more to orange. of course love #4 too, who doesn't love pink blusher right?
overall, i'm really glad i've chosen this color. i'm in love with it, yeah i totally am.

Rating: 5/5 (that is how much i love it :D)

Illuminance Eyes in 01 Jewel Dress

i was debating with myself to get the Illuminance Eyes in 01 Jewel Dress, 02 Fantastic Light or 03 Brocade Gold. But decided to get this one as i love to have a purple and pink eye shadow.
but after i've got it i just saw that it looks nothing near purple (#1). well, maybe a little bit but i was fooled by the color on the website. this is a risk to buy when you didn't see the real one though. here is the color on Jill Stuart's website:

but glad to have the rest of the colors though. they are all very shimmery and for me it will be over the top to wear it on day but will be great for night.

Rating: 3/5 (don't trust the color on the website)

Jelly Eye N Color in 10 Vintage Deco

when i first touch it, i was really surprised that the texture does feel like jelly. i thought that Jelly Eye is just a name for it. and as so many people have said, you just have to dap a little and the color will payoff. it's really shimmery and pigmented.

Rating: 4/5 (too shimmery for me)

And a few days ago i received a love package from Julie of Pop Champagne, i won her giveaway few weeks ago. She's really a sweetheart and i totally love her blog. it's always great to catch up juicy gossips from her :D. go check out her blog if you haven't!

the love package and the sweet note

GS&P necklace and hairclips, elf Liquid Eyeshadow, elf Lip color trio and sweets! of course those sweets are long gone by now :p

i really love her necklace. the picture doesn't do justice at all, it's far more beautiful in real life.

That's it for this post. Have a nice day to you all! :)

oh Dina!I love the blush swatches, esp I was lemming for peach and orange-toned blushes! I tried at the counter and Coral Glow didn't really show up on me, so I guess you must be pretty fair for it to show up on your skin :D

Yes the colors on the website is not very reliable :X

Fifi said...

Ooh Dina! You got me lemming on the jell eye. Looks very shimmery on the pot!

Congrats on winning Pop's giveaway! The necklace is gorgeous!

Blair said...

Coral Glow is sooooooo pretty! I'm so jealous haha ;D

Dina, is Illuminance Eyes pigmented? Would you recommend it?

Can't wait for your thoughts on what those Shizuku masks smell like! I still can't place that scent =(

amynaree said...

JS mixed blushes are the best!!! I wish they weren't so expensive so I could have them all haha

Cute stuff from Julie!

Daituf said...

I know right! The color on the website is completely different from the actual thing!
I remember looking at blogger swatches of JS, and thinking "wth? that doesn't look purple at all!" which is why I didn't get jewel dress. It looks a bit too cool toned for me anyway...

Pretty necklace! GS& that a famous brand?

FriendzCentury said...

Great swatches, and I agree the Jewel Dress compact is more pink than purple, I feel that a lot of their eye shadows are not as true to their colour, when swatched in person.
