As reported by Makeup Moxie, Jill Stuart will be launching it’s US debut!
How exciting is that?!
During Jill Stuart’s recent runway show attendees were given a blush compact and glosses. The line will soon launch within the US which will include an estimated 30 products for eyes, lips, and face. Since the Jill Stuart line collection is so vast I’m making the assumption they are keeping with a cosmetic theme and not yet introducing the skincare line up. I assume they are doing only a few products to test the waters out and see how well it sells. Prices will range from $15-$50 USD which sounds quite nice considering the prices within Japan at the moment are a bit higher.
Last year, the company sold $40 million dollars in cosmetics in Asia, 1 million of which belonged to the Muse hehe!
I’m curious to see if the release will go with colors already available within Asia or if they’ll do some LE shade selections available exclusive to the US. I think it’s safe to say at this point they’ll be testing all this out prior to diving fully in. I should hope the launch is successful as many eager Jill Stuart fans will be most happy about this situation!

All in all some very, very, very exciting news for Jill Stuart fans everywhere!
Jill Stuart Fall Collection 2008 (Review coming soon….)
Jill Stuart Christmas Collection 2007 Review
Fake Jill Stuart Eye Palettes!
MuseTV Presents: Spotlight on Jill Stuart Cosmetics
An Introduction to Japanese Brands
Jill Stuart’s website has been updated with the latest Fall Collection for 2008 entitled Illuminance. I find the name quite fitting as the new shadow palettes and cheek blushes sport beautiful golds for Fall.
I wasn’t particularly excited about the Brilliance collection but I do feel a slight tinge of interest. I think I’ll be indulging in at least one of the blushes and three of the shadow palettes. The shadow palettes have been slightly revamped as well with an interesting design on the front of the compact. It’s been a little bit of a gap between purchases for me on the Jill Stuart front simply because the shadow palettes are extremely uneventful with similiar shades being used over and over and over again.
The Muse’s stash of blush compacts hauled from last season!
However, after such a long dry spell Jill Stuart Illuminance may be getting some of the Muse’s hard earned money! Palettes are 5,000 yen each and blushes are 4,500 yen each. Expect to pay $10-$30 USD more per item online.
Items I think I’ll be indulging in:
Eye palettes in Jewel Dress, Fantastic Light, Brocade Gold, and Flash Veil.
Blush in Gold Illuminance.
How about you?
Got your eyes on anything?
Love Jill Stuart?

Jill Stuart Christmas Collection Review
Jill Stuart has updated it’s website with a very small Summer Collection. Sadly, it’s nothing to get too excited about.
The releases include a new Seductive Eyes Palette in 05 Gemmy Diva and two liglosses in Marguerite Glow and Gleaming Nectar.
Any other day I’d be bouncing around in excitement that a new palette has been introduced but I am slightly wary of the color combinations that they keep releasing. I’d love something new. This particular palette is similiar to the Holiday Coffret’s release. I’m very tempted as the two colors on the left seem to be very nice Summery shades however it’s nothing I can’t recreate or don’t already have from prior palette releases.
As much as I absolutely adore Jill Stuart I can’t help but yawn and as you can see above the palette is very similar to the Holiday release!
I’ll definately be purchasing this palette but please, Jill, if you’re listening, can we have some new color combos?
The palette is 5,000 yen (did the price raise on these? I recall them being a tad bit lower last year!) and each lipgloss is 2,800 yen!
I think it’s safe to assume these are out and available at counters now or will be shortly since the site has been update very recently!
Wanting this collection?
As bored as the Muse?
Tell me all about it!

Click here to read the woe and warning of Fake Jill Stuart Palettes that have popped up on online auctions!
Unbelievable. I just read about this on Risser’s blog and I was absolutely gobsmacked. It appears that a few fake Jill Stuart Palettes have popped up on a yahoo auction. The seller appears to be in Hong Kong.
One of my original Jill Stuart Palettes:
Amazing how alike these look right? Even down to the plastic cover sheet! Wow. Just wow. It was pointed out that the only thing missing from the fakes is the Jill Stuart logo on the bottom right hand corner of the open palette! If you see my photo and compare it to the fakes you’ll notice the logo is missing! Interesting.
I’m absolutely astounded.
Can you believe this?
I can’t help but look at the palettes and think how great the color combos are though hehe! I’m awful aren’t I?
Honestly, the boxes and compact looks freaking awesome for a fake don’t they!?
You can read some rants about this seller by clicking here.
But seriously this is just fascinating. The things people do!
So beware kiddies when bidding on auctions from another country! I bid on abroad auctions all the time so this might be an eye opener for me!
Thanks to Risser for keeping us in the know! Risser explains in her post that it’s common for MAC and Bobbi Brown to pop up with counterfeit items but it’s not everyday you see Jill Stuart being duped like this!
This is rather sad for people who are new to the brand, not knowing the color selection and buying these blindfolded and being screwed over! Very sad!
My very awesome mate and reader, Betsy, has gotten her Japanese Spring haul in! Lucky duck! I’m still eagerly sitting by my mail box awaiting my Spring goodies!
Betsy was kind enough to e-mail me last night and give me a low down on her goodies plus pictures!
You have Betsy to thank for these gorgeous pics!
Have a lookee:
You might remember me blogging about Beaute de Kose’s Cyber Shining Eyes Palettes that were released this Spring (You can click here for details on the release).
Betsy ended up getting the 002 variation of the palette and I’m drooling! The palette is absolutely gorgeous! She says that the palette reminded her of YSL’s White Gold Palette and I must say I agree!
The colors look very metallic and quite sparkly! I love any LE’s that Beaute de Kose does as the always end up something special and this palette is most definately yummie!
Betsy picked up two of the new Jill Stuart Seductive Eye Palettes as well. I’ve dodged the Seductive Eye palettes bullet for a while now convincing myself the colors would be matte and boring but after seeing these images I’d say I’m back on board and the lemming force is strong! I guess they aren’t so matte after all! Looks like lots of chunky glitter, shimmer, and sparkle! Betsy says indeed they are full of beautiful sparkle and the only color that’s a bit matte would be the 2nd shadow which can be used as a base for the other shadows in the palette! As you can see from the pictures below the palettes are astoundingly drool worthy!
Finally we have one of the new Lunasol Palettes and as always it’s gorgeous! I’m impressed with the newest palettes this year as they have many good, solid color combos that mix well together and I want at least two!
Overall, Spring in Japan is turning out very nicely!
Thanks for the pics and impressions Betsy!
