Last Friday, Jill Stuart Beauty released their Spring 2010 Point Makeup Collection, including two limited Jelly Lip Gloss shades. I picked up the Jelly Lip Gloss in 17 Cherry Pop. For some reason, Cherry Pop looks quite orange in the February edition of Maquia and very magenta in the February issue of Voce but it is a more youthful and attractive raspberry shade. The lip gloss is somewhat pigmented to give your lips a nice pink-red tint and contains pink shimmer. It is slightly sticky and thick like all of the Jelly Lip Glosses but leaves the lips looking shiny and plump. I am quite pleased with 17 Cherry Pop although I do wish it were slighter more pigmented. I think it would work well for both a day look and a more dressed-up night look. One Jelly Lip Gloss is 2,310 yen (including tax).
03 Princess Sapphire is one of four new Jewel Crystal Eyes palettes released as part of the spring collection. It is also my first Jill Stuart eyeshadow palette. All of the shadows are quite sheer, although the pink and black are slightly more pigmented. If you are pale person, the salmon and lavender will not show very well on your skin. The shadows are slightly crumbly at first but are very soft and blend right into the skin, much like the Mix Face Powder Compact in 101 Marshmallow Puffy from the 2009 Christmas coffret. The glitter in the shadows is quite large, which means that Princess Sapphire is a very sparkly palette. But like all shadows with large shimmer, the shimmer falls off your lids and gets everywhere. Jewel Crystal Eyes is very cute palette but not a practical one. If you already own a Jill Stuart palette, I would not recommend purchasing one from this series. In fact, I would only recommend the Jewel Crystal Eyes to the most avid Jill Stuart fan. If you would like to try a more pigmented Jill Stuart eyeshadow, I suggest trying out one of their Eye Color shadows which are of better quality than the palette shadows, in my opinion. Like most Jill Stuart Cosmetics products, the Jewel Crystal Eyes is scented. One palette is 5,250 yen (including tax).
