Jill Stuart Blush Blossom Dual Cheek Color Review and Swatches

Jill Stuart Blush Blossom Dual Cheek Color 14

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!

EDUN for Sephora Palette Harmony Review and Swatches

EDUN for Sephora Palettes are reduced to $15 at Sephora currently. The original price was $36 so it might be a nice one to pick up for Back to School or if you’re just wanting a new little palette to play with!

I snagged the Harmony one which is the warmer of the two shade selections available.

I’m not a fan of Sephora makeup but the colors were so pretty I couldn’t resist!

Tarte EmphasEYES Aqua-Gel Eyeliner Review and Swatches

I’m going to see 30 Seconds to Mars in September and I can’t help but wish I’ll find my night in shining manliner in the audience somewhere or if I’m lucky grown up Jordan Catalano might spot me in the crowd and sweep me off my feet.

Speaking of manliner or in our cases eyeliner, Tarte has a brand new Aqua Gel Eyeliner that may appeal to not only Jared Leto but the rest of us looking for the next best thing in our eyeliner lives.

Smashbox Masquerade Liquid Liner & Lash Overlay Review and Swatches

You’re not officially American unless you’re multitasking your way through life. Driving while on your cell phone, reading your e-mail while updating your blog, texting your best friend while debating politics with your neighbor, walking while chewing gum at the same time….this is the society we live in. We have to juggle 10 to 20 different tasks a day, we can’t take time out and do one thing and proceed to follow up with another after the first task is complete, we need to do them both, together, simultaneously. If you can’t do it, you’re out of this rat race because it’s an essential skill in work and your personal life (if you have kids you need to juggle even more, say 20-30 different things).

Maybe all that multitasking has drained out into our makeup because many products nowadays promise to do everything and than some. Multitasking is the new wave of your makeup future.

For example the new Smashbox Masquerade Liquid Liner & Lash Overlay performs two functions, nope not one, this bad boy multitasks with the best of us.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Blushing Fabric Review and Swatches

Giorgio Armani Beauty Blushing Fabric 3

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?
