The beautiful and wonderful SunnyDahye sent me two beautiful Jill Stuart products. They are the eyeshadow quad in Nude Venus and the lip balm in W3.
First, can I just say these products have gorgeous, if a bit over the top, packaging. I would describe the packaging as grown up princess packaging.
The lip balm feels great on the lips and has a lovely rose scent. It lasts for about two hours and comes across as a clear gloss. For me the downside is that it is in a pot. I am not a fan of potted lip products because I hate sticking my fingers in them and I always forget a lip brush.
The eyeshadow palette is a gorgeous neutral palette. Perfect for everyday but it has a dark enough brown to get a smoky eye if you wanted. The eyeshadows are lightly rose scented too, I'm not sure that its practical or necessary for the eyeshadows to be scented but it fits with the over the top luxury of the products. The shadows have pretty good pigmentation, they apply smooth with no fall out. They also blend well. I love this palette and expect to use it for everyday and it could also be great for traveling.
Overall, this was an amazing present to get! I think the products are great aside from my issue with potted lip products.
I would say that I probably wouldn't purchase these regularly because they are very expensive. The quads are $50 and the lip balm is about $24.
Have you tried any Jill Stuart products? Which ones?
