Here it is folks, the moment you’ve all been waiting for. News on Jill Stuart Cosmetics!
A year or so ago the rumor of Jill Stuart Cosmetics was afloat during Fashion Week and how the flagship store located in New York would begin carrying the line. This morning I read online that indeed Jill Stuart Cosmetics is available within the US at the Jill Stuart Store located in Manhattan.
I called straight away as I don’t have time to wander over there today and here are the deets.
If you live in New York you can head to 100 Greene Street and touch, pet, and haul till your little heart beats right out of your chest. If you live somewhere else in the US you can order from the store by calling them at (212) 343-2300 and paying a flat rate ground fee of around $15 to have them ship some yummie goodies your way.
I asked after a few of the prices and they are pretty reasonably priced and almost what you’d paid within Japan even a little bit less in some cases. This is the color cosmetic line only that they carry and from what the sales girl told me it’s a limited amount of items but none the less it’s still Jill Stuart right?
Here’s the break down of a few prices:
Jill Stuart Eye Palettes $48
Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Creams $24
Jill Stuart Glosses $30
I only got a few prices as I’m sure the rep was busy at her job. I’ll head over there next chance I get to snag some photos and let you know further details. Fact of the matter is that Jill Stuart Cosmetics within the US is striking news for this sunny Fall afternoon. I’m hopeful this means it’ll branch out to high end counters at Nordies, Saks, and Neimen’s soon! I imagine it all depends on how the line does in the store itself.
Don’t forget to check out my slew of Jill Stuart Reviews located here on Musings before making your purchases.
One of my most prized collections is that of my Jill Stuart cosmetics particularly my Jill Stuart Eye Shadow Palettes.
You’ll see why after the jump!
Jill Stuart Cosmetics have that certain beautiful packaging that makes us forget most of the makeup world and just stare in awe (and possibly drool while doing so) and excitement at the beauty that makes up this makeup. Much of the packaging is unique to anything I’ve purchased before and very, very beautiful. I’m a fan particularly of the eye shadow palettes whith house soft shimmering shades of color. I started out my collection with a single palette and soon after hauled five more. Since that time I ended up with near 20 palettes but only nine now make up my collection as various ones were handed over to friends who fell as in love with them as I did.
Although expensive and at times repetitious the brand holds a very special place in my heart. Hope you enjoyed my stash spotlight of Jill Stuart Shadow Palettes!
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!
