It’s no secret Jill Stuart is one of my very favorite cosmetic brands. With it’s elegant packaging and unique makeup items, is it any wonder why it’s a makeup junkie’s dream come true?
As of late I haven’t indulged in Jill Stuart cosmetics due to the repetitive color releases and bad currency conversion. But regardless how repetitious it becomes or how high the cost, Jill Stuart still remains a true favorite that stands out in my makeup world.

Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color in Platinum Gold was released as part of the Spring Collection this year and proved extremely difficult to get a hold off. Almost as soon as it released it was sold out in Japan right away. See kids? Japan knows what LE really means!
Jump ahead to hear a rave about Platinum Gold!
Proving to be one of the most elusive items to date that the Muse had to track down, Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color in Platinum Gold also happens to be the most beautiful. After it selling out in Japan I had to quickly located it in Taiwan, which bless be, it was easy enough to locate. It’s understandable why it was so popular as it’s probably one of the prettiest shades in the Jelly Eye collection. The color is a white gold with contrasting silver shimmer and sparkle. It’s heavy duty sparkle so if you’re not a lover you’d best keep away from Jelly Eye Shadows in general.
Although it’s a cream shadow it blends effortlessly and creates a soft, subtle golden shimmer on the lid that can only be described as stunning. It also lends a certain lightness to my eyes so it’s particularly nice if I’m having a dark circle day or baggy eye day as this will brighten up my eyes a fair bit. I’ve have a few of the Jelly Eye Shadows before and I really like the formula. As I mentioned the formula blends easily and it’s also very light and smooth, not heavy at all, so it feels silky on. Although for some the amount of shimmer could be a deal breaker. It doesn’t dry quickly so it gives plenty of time to blend the shadow out, I’m a sucker for cream shadows that don’t dry right away as I think this causes woe for blending. The shadow comes housed in a gorgeous jar with a pretty silver top, very feminine and elegant.
The shade is probably my favorite from the line so far and is truly a pretty addition for Spring. It may prove slightly difficult to find so I suggest trying KATE Gel Eyeshadow in GD-1
or Coffret D’Or Fluffy Shine Eyes in 03.
Both of these options are easier to find stateside and cheaper as well!
Apologies for my bare lips in the photos!
I’m looking forward to seeing what Jill Stuart has in store for us this Summer! I’ve been kinda off the Jill Stuart bandwagon lately but I’m always excited for new release.
There’s something so very pretty about Jill Stuart Blushes. I’m not a big fan of the pressed powder blush but I absolutely adore the loose powder blushes!
I know, I know I’ve already done a Jill Stuart spotlight but today I thought I’d focus on the blushes!
I’ve always had such a soft spot in my heart for these blushes. They come housed in a dome shaped powder jar that has a certain Victorian feel about it. Bedecked with little jewels the jar is completely girlish and very pretty. Although it’s plastic the container still manages to sport a certain elegance about it.
I used to have all the shades of the blush but I’ve swapped a few away here and there and I’m left with five at the moment. My favorite of the bunch is Aurora Rose which is a popping pink that makes me look like someone pinched my cheeks!
One thing I must rave on and on about is the great brush these comes with. It’s dense with large fluffy bristles that make application a breeze. I look forward to one day hitting bottom on one of these blushes so i can use the brush for something else. I’m anal at the moment and won’t use the brush for anything else but the blush it came with.
The blushes are pigmented and silky smooth but if I’m honest I’d probably admit to buying these just because I adore the packaging…the fact that blushes are good is just a bonus!
Jill Stuart Blushes total love for this Muse!
Own any yourself?
Tell the Muse!
September there was quite a roar of excitement at the possibility of Jill Stuart Cosmetics making their way to the US however a recent article in Elle says that may not be the case!
Jump ahead for the sad news….
According to Emily Hebert of Elle News Blog the Jill Stuart Cosmetic Line will not be launching at a counter near you anytime soon but instead will debut at the Jill Stuart flagship store in Soho.
“……the beauty products—which were used by makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury at Jill Stuart’s spring 2009 show—will debut in late spring/early summer at Stuart’s flagship store in Manhattan’s SoHo district (no exact date is set).”
Well so much for all the excitement that maybe Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks, and other fine department stores would have the makeup collection on sale!
I’ve forsaken Shu!
Bad Muse, Bad!
Although I simply adore Shu Uemura Cleansing Oils I recently cheated on them with Jill Stuart Cleansing Oil….what….Jill Stuart is way more girly and kawaii looking! Can’t help a girl for wanting to indulge!
After careful weighting in of my obscene collection of cleansing oils, both cheap and inexpensive, I deem Jill Stuart the best cleansing oil I ever did try!
I’ve been using this for a few months now and I see myself quickly replacing it with a new bottle as soon as I’m done. At around 2,800 yen per 200ML it’s actually not badly priced when compared to other costly brands I’ve tried such as Shu and RMK. Granted it’s not budget priced but it does exactly what it says it does, while having beautiful packaging, and smelling nice!’
What more could a girl want?
The cleansing oil works in a similiar fashion as all good cleansing oils. Simply pump two or three squirts into your dry hands and apply to dry skin by slowly massaging in to break up makeup, rinse with warm or cool water, and Bob’s your Uncle! Your face is left beautifully moist and makeup free!
Now any good cleansing can do this for you however it’s rare I’ve come across such a sweet smelling cleanser or one that washes away so well without leaving bit of a residue behind. Almost all cleansing oils I’ve tried always have a teeny tiny bit of a residue that I have to use toner to get off afterwards however Jill Stuart Cleansing Oil washes clean the first time! Aside from RMK which carries a cool, minty fragrance, Jill Stuart Cleansing Oil also happens to be the first of it’s kind that carries a delightfully fruity, sweet smell. I know many of you dislike scented skincare but I personally love it especially when it carries such a flattering scent as this.
Although the bottle is plastic it still manages to keep a nice elegant feel to it and it looks rather lovely on my bathroom vanity sitting with my other pretty bits and bobs!
Maybe I’m bias because it’s pink or maybe because it smells so pretty! Whatever the reason I’m currently loving Jill Stuart Cleansing Oil and making it my holy grail cleansing oil from now on!
The Muse likey and suggests picking one up online if you can find it at a decent price! Do see my Japanese Cosmetic Buying Guide to see if you can locate Jill Stuart Cleansing Online for a good price!
