Jill Stuart is a luxury brand of cosmetics that started out life exclusively in Japan and more recently spread across Asia. The bad news is the product I’m about to review for you is not available within the US, I got it from Japan, however the good news is some of the Jill Stuart Cosmetic Collection is sold in the Jill Stuart Soho store (details) if you get a craving for the brand after reading this post.
Those of you who have never heard of the brand can rewind back to 3 or 4 years ago when I first started Musings and read my Introduction to Japanese Brands to higher your education a little bit and check out my Jill Stuart Spotlight from my really strange MuseTV days.
Ahh the evolution of Jill Stuart blush. She started out loose, became a solid, and now she’s loose again! The new Jill Stuart Blush Blossom Dual Cheek Color is a compact form of Jill Stuart Loose Blush. It’s chic, it’s gorgeous, and it’s brand new for the Jill Stuart Fall Collection 2010.
Let’s take a look!
I’ve held off my review on Giorgio Armani Beauty Blushing Fabric for a while now. I purchased all three shades of this blush early in July or so when it originally released. But counters had gotten a very limited stock in plus online was sold out for a little bit which is why I didn’t want to tempt and tease you with something that might prove unattainable.
I thought these were running for a limited time but two of my Armani Beauty counters have recently restocked and they are readily available again on www.giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com so I’d said it’s about time I told you all about them.
Want the good word?

Today’s pick, E.L.F. Studio Blush.
Let me tell you something.
If you told me you spent $3 bucks on blush and that it worked, chances are I’d call you a liar. Honestly, $3 blush, has to be garbage right?
Ahhhh pink. For a long time it was my signature shade of choice. Pink always gives my cheeks a youthful glow so I’m all over it like white on rice. The Stila Fall Collection 2010 has released and it’s all about that perfect shade of color for cheeks.
Now, I don’t really commonly associate the shade of pink with Fall but I can’t deny that I’m really loving hard on the Stila Custom Color Blush.
Ahh the sweetness of a blush.
There’s something gorgeous about a pink flush across cheek bones isn’t there? The type of pink that makes our cheeks glow after a romantic kiss or sometimes the brisk morning air that tinges our cheeks with a hint of pink.
Blushing pink cheeks give off a certain innocent, youthfulness.
If you want to capture just the right flush of pink you might be interested in the new Clarins Instant Blush Magic Colour.
