About two months ago, I purchased Jill Stuart's Eye Color shadow in S-07 Purple Jewel and S-02 Peacock Feather. I have always wanted to try a non-jelly Jill Stuart eyeshadow but because their palettes always seem to be sheer, I decided to go with a couple of their mono eyeshadows instead. The Eye Colors are well-pigmented, fine and have a somewhat creamy texture. Purple Jewel, which contains pink and purple shimmer, is a bright purple shade... In the container. I found that, when I applied the shadow to my lid, it looked almost magenta. As I have mentioned before, pink shadows do not go well with my skin tone and often make my eyes looks swollen and puffy. Purple Jewel is still a pretty shadow but is not the right shade for me.
Peacock Feather also looked very different on my eyes. In the container, it is a deep, almost-teal green but on the skin, it has more of a cobalt blue hue, likely due to the blue pearls in the shadow. Peacock Feather was not as much as a disappointment as I also like deep blue shades but I am sad that Jill Stuart does not carry a proper purple shadow in their Eye Color collection. I think I might try Cosme Decorte Magie Deco's PU173 Hydrangea Pure Color shadow, which has blue and gold pearls, next time.
