Jill Stuart Sweetness Collection Christmas Coffret


私の個人の意見としてですが、ジルスチュアートスウィートネス コレクションは、今年発売された全てのコフレの中で、最もお買い得だと思います。7,500円(税抜き)で、ミックスフェイスパウダー コンパクト 101マシュマロパフィー、ジルスチュアート オリジナルのフェイスパウダー用ブラシ、ジェリーアイカラー N 103スノーパフェ、ジェリー リップグロス 101シュガーキッス、ネイルラッカー N 106ロマンティック マカロン、ネイルアートスティッカー&グリーティングカード、エメリーボード、そしてオリジナル ポーチが入っています。もしジルスチュアートのコスメ商品に興味があるけど、まだ試したことが無いという方にとって、このクリスマスコフレはジルの商品を試すには最適だと思います。

The Jill Stuart Sweetness Collection is, in my opinion, the Christmas coffret that provides the best deal out of all of the coffrets released this year. For 7,500 yen (tax), you will receive the Mix Face Powder Compact in 101 Marshmallow Puffy, an original Jill Stuart face brush to apply the face powder, the Jell Eye Color N in 103 Snow Parfait, the Jelly Lip gloss in 101 Sugar Kiss, the Nail Lacquer N in 106 Romantic Macaron, a Nail Art Sticker set and greeting card, an emery board and a Jill Stuart original pouch. If you are interested in Jill Stuart's beauty line but have never had the chance to try their products, the Christmas coffret is a great way to sample their makeup.

オリジナルポーチはフリルが付いていてお姫様のような、いかにもジルスチュアートらしいスタイルです。私はいかにも女の子っぽい感じの物はあまり好まないので、このポーチのデザインはあまり魅力的ではないですが、ポーチはかなり大きくてメイク用品を入れるには良いです。

The original pouch is very frilly and princessy, just what you would expect from Jill Stuart Beauty. I am not a girly girl so the design has no appeal to me but the pouch is quite large and great for storing makeup.

ジェリー リップグロスはランコムのジューシーチューブに似ていますが、少し薄めで、べと付きも少し少なめ、そしてより良いラメが入っている点で若干異なります。101 シュガーキッスは概ねシアーですが、マゼンタのラメが沢山入っていて、唇に付けるといくらかミルキーな感じに見えます。

The Jelly Lip Gloss is quite similar to Lancôme's Juicy Tubes except that its formula is thinner, slightly less sticky, and contains finer shimmer. 101 Sugar Kiss goes on mostly sheer but it is jam-packed with magenta shimmer and also has a somewhat milky-appearance on the lips.

私は以前、ジェリーアイカラー Nの異なる2色をレビューしたことがありますので、ここ(07ジュエルフラッシュ)とここ(08クリスタルスカイ)をクリックして読んで下さい。
103 スノーパフェは淡いローズピンクですがピンクとゴールドのラメがウォームトーンな感じに見せてくれます。

I have reviewed two different shades from the Jelly Eye Color N collection before and you may read the reviews here (07 Jewel Flash) and here (08 Crystal Sky). 103 Snow Parfait is a pale rose pink but the pink and gold shimmer in the Jelly Eye make it look warm-toned.

まだ、スウィートネス コレクションのネイル用品はまだ試してないのですが、ネイルスティッカーは非常に薄くて使いやすそうですし、エメリーボードは典型的な爪やすり、そしてネイルラッカー N106 ロマンティック マカロンはベージュピンクに良質のピンクラメが入っていて、パールのようなツヤがあります。

I have yet to try any of the nail products from the Sweetness Collection but I can say that the nail stickers are quite thin and should be easy to use, the emery board is your typical nail-file emery board, and the Nail Lacquer N in 106 Romantic Macaron is a beige-pink shade with fine pink shimmer and a pearly sheen.

ミックスフェイスパウダー コンパクト 101 マシュマロパフィーはコンパクトの中で砕けやすいですが、驚く程に柔らかく(まるでマシュマロのように!)、肌に付けるとすぐに肌に浸透します。マシュマロパフィーに入っている全4色は全てシアーで、とてもキラキラしています。とてもキラキラしているので多くの人が使うとは思えませんし、ビジネスシーンや大人の女性には最も適さない商品だと思います。フェイスパウダーとは言っていますが、私はマシュマロパフィーはボディシマーとして使うのが一番だと思うので、首や腕、またはほんの少しを目の下に付けることをオススメします。

The Mix Face Powder Compact in 101 Marshmallow Puffy is crumbly in the compact but incredibly soft (like marshmallows!) and immediately melts into the skin once it has been applied. All of the four shades in Marshmallow Puffy are sheer and extremely shimmery. It is so shimmery that I doubt many will actually use this product and it is most definitely not work appropriate or appropriate for the more mature woman. Although it is described as a face powder, I think Marshmallow Puffy would work best as body shimmer and I highly recommend applying it to your neck, arms and legs, and perhaps, just a dab under your eyes.

ミックスフェイス コンパクトのブラシは可愛らしくて(便利な)ケースに入っています。金属で出来ているので、あまり傷つきにくいですし、そのコンパクトなサイズは旅行にはもってこいです。私は普段、合成繊維のブラシだけを使うのですが、このジルのブラシはそうではないと思うので、将来的に環境に優しくて非動物性のブラシを販売して欲しいです。

The brush for the Mixed Face Compact comes in a lovely (and useful) case. Since it is made of metal, it should not damage easily and its compact size makes it a great travel product. I only use synthetic brushes, however, and I do not think that this is a synthetic brush, so I hope Jill Stuart will consider releasing eco-friendly and cruelty-free brushes in the future.

まとめると、このスウィートネス コレクションは非常に良いクリスマスコフレです。最高に素晴らしいというわけではありませんが、値段の割に多くの物が入っていますし、いくつかの商品は普通に使えそうです。覚えておいて頂きたい大事な点は、スウィートネス コレクションの全ての商品には香りが付いていて、マシュマロパフィーは少し乾燥させて、雲母を含んでいるということです。

Overall, the Sweetness Collection is a decent Christmas coffret. It is not spectacular but it gives you a lot for your yen and I can see myself regularly using some of the products. It is important to note that all of makeup in the Sweetness Collection is scented and the Marshmallow Puffy, which I found slightly drying, contains mica.

次はスックのクリスマスコフレです!

Hi there, it's been a while, but I just wanted to let you know that I quoted you in my post for Shiseido d Program (http://innerchild9x.blogspot.com/2010/01/shiseido-d-program-conditioning-wash.html). It's for the cleanser, I ended up liking it, and liking it a lot actually. I finally posted about it, took me long enough :P Thank you for introducing me to this brand, I want to try the Blue toner or the pink toner next. I'm not sure the Orange range is for me, it's a little too drying. Your blog is the most hopeful, I hope you come back soon :) Happy new year, hope you're doing well!

Btw, the Jill Stuart coffret looks gorgeous, I'm so attracted to their packaging!

Hi En, new to your blog here. I want to try Jill Stuart makeup, its so girly princess-y and different from my usual black makeup/gothic lolita. It would go great with sweet lolita, which I want to venture into. Do you have any info regarding Alice Deco a la Mode?

Hi Jennifer,
Yes, Jill Stuart definitely knows how to do adorable! Thank you for commenting.

Hi Melissa,
Thank you for dropping by!
The whole coffret really has a princess-y feel to it.

Hi Totchii,
Thank you for the nice comment. I think the coffret was the best deal of the season and practical for the most part, too.

Utoshi,
Thank you so much for looking after my poupee! I'll be updating the blog with your presents before the week is over.

Hi Evie,
That is too bad that Singapore doesn't have the Jill Stuart beauty line. Maybe it is available online. Thank you for commenting.

Hi Anonymous,
I hope I'm not too late. According to the offical OPI Japan website (http://www.opijapan.com/), OPI polishes are available at most nail salons in department stores and at Tokyu Hands and PLAZA shops. However, I don't think the matte polishes like the green one you are looking for have been released in Japan.

If it comes in pink,
It's too cute to give up! =)
Thank you for dropping by.

Hi Blair,
Thank you for asking. I've been extremely busy at work and didn't even have the holidays off. I hope I can get back to my regular blogging schedule!

Hi innerchild,
Thank you so much for the kind comment. I'm glad to hear that the dprogram line is working for you. I hope you had a wonderful New Year, as well!

Hi Robolegojupiter,
It's been a few years since I last read a loli magazine (G&L Bible to be exact). To be honest, I don't know all that much about Sweet Lolita makeup (I was more of a h.Naoto-rock gal) and have never heard of Alice Deco a la Mode but it looks great.

If you are looking for a cheaper alternative to Jill Stuart, Shiseido's Majolica Majorca and Kanebo's Kate are both quite popular among the lolita crowd and very affordable and good quality.

Thanks for your response! I'm not an avid fan of loli stuff, rather, I like to incorporate elements of the style into my clothing sometimes.
