Jill Stuart Jelly Blush Review & Swatches

Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color Passion Fruit

Jill Stuart Jelly Blush is a new mousse-like blush that was released in Japan for Summer 2013. It’s available in five shade selections and quite reminiscent of Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color.

I actually expected it to be WAY more shimmery than it is as the texture was so darn similar to Jelly Eye Color and we all know how sparkly Jelly Eye Color is right?

I was very excited about this blush launch as the product isn’t quite like anything I’ve seen before texture wise in a blush.

Let’s take a look!

Hada Labo BB Moist Cream Review & Swatches

Hada Labo BB Moist Cream

Hada Labo BB Moist Cream is a gel foundation that contains Hyaluronic Acid which makes it an ideal pick for drier skin. It deserves to be mentioned I have a love/hate relationship with this product and I can’t rightfully say why that is. All in all the formula is rather nice but I think the “BB” in the title automatically makes me associate it with a BB Cream and that it isn’t.

Shiseido Maquillage Essence Glamorous Rouge Review & Swatches

Shiseido Maquillage Essence Glamorous Rouge Spring 2013 Shades

Shiseido Maquillage Essence Glamorous Rouge is available in a few new shades for Spring 2013 so I quickly snatched up one (even though I was tempted to get them all).

Maquillage is one of the sub-brands that’s part of Shiseido in Japan. Such a shame its never made its way to the US.

The appealing aspect of Essence Glamorous Rouge was the colors were inspired by natural lip colors and tone so it gives you that “your lips but better” finish.

Take a look!
