Jill Stuart Patisserie Custard Lip Pot Review & Swatches

The Jill Stuart Patisserie Collection is limited edition collection released for Fall 2012. It’s inspired by a French pastry shop and the packaging, shade names, and scent of the products all bring to mind decadent pastries and desserts.

The Jill Stuart Custard Lip Pots are pretty much spot on for that inspiration as they look like little cups of custard. These were released in five shades and both the colors and product themselves are available for a limited time with this collection.

Take a look!


Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream Swatches

I’ve already reviewed the Maybelline Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream in a prior post. I picked up the shade medium from the UK when it originally launched and since it’s so readily available here in the US now I decided to indulge in the Light/Medium shade selection since I felt like the color I originally purchased was a tad too dark.

Here are some swatches and a few babbles comparing the UK formula to the US one.


Jill Stuart Patisserie Custard Lip Pot Swatches

Jill Stuart Patisserie Custard Lip Pots
are darling little tinted lip balms that quite remind me of Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Blusher in packaging style although Jill Stuart has always favored these tiny pots for many of their eye and lip products in the past.

Let’s take a look!


Jill Stuart Patisserie Sugar Glitter Eyes Swatches

Sugar Glitter Eyes are a selection of five limited edition cream eyeshadows from the Jill Stuart Patisserie Collection.

After swatching these I find they quite remind me of Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color with a thinner consistency and a new package, even the shades are kinda dupes of past shades of Jelly Eye Color. They also remind me of Visee Shower Eyes so the concept of a sparkly liquid/cream shadow with a sponge applicator isn’t a terribly new idea.

Even though they aren’t terribly different from products I already own I still LOVE this style of Japanese Eyeshadow. It’s actually the type of formula that got me hooked on cream eyeshadows.

Jill Stuart Patisserie Mix Blush Compact Swatches

Good Morning!

Yesterday my Jill Stuart Patisserie Collection haul arrived from Japan. I was tweeting a few pics in excitement.

Today I thought I’d do a few swatches and follow up with review soon after.
