Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color N 18 Bird Flutter Review & Swatches

Although I’ve reviewed Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color a few times already, I thought I’d haul out the very delightful, limited edition shade, Bird Flutter, for a swatch and a play today.

I’m obsessed with all things coral and peach particularly when Spring and Summer hit and this is a lovely shade of peachy coral that shouldn’t be missed. This shade is also one of the more vibrant ones I’ve seen in this range since the Jelly Eye Colors normally favor lighters shades of gold, pink, etc…

Take a look!

As with all Jill Stuart makeup the packaging is part of the main appeal. Jelly Eye Color comes in a little glass pot with a silver mirrored top that has swirl embellishments. It’s a very pretty, elegant piece of makeup.

But the packaging isn’t the only thing wonderful about it.

I absolutely adore Jelly Eye Color because of the lovely sparkle factor. The texture of the product is that of a spongy cream mousse infused with sparkles. These blend easily onto eyes and build nicely for a super sparkly eye look. I find the shades can be applied lightly for a wash of color or heavier for better color pay off and pop. They adhere very nicely on my dry lids and I never have issues with creasing or fading even if I forgo primer. The best application technique is most definitely fingers as they offer the best control to apply the product in a smooth, even layer.

Bird Flutter is probably one of the nicest shades I’ve seen from the brand (although every time they do a new shade I say that ha!). This is a lovely bright orange-y coral sparkle that pairs up lovely with warm shades of blush.

Overall, this one is a keeper and has me literally a flutter over the color. Absolutely a gem!

Well worth a pick up!

Jill Stuart is sold here in the New York Flagship Store and they do ship if you call and ask. But they are a bit iffy with LE Collections sometimes. If you’d like to shop it online I recommend imomoko.com or adambeauty.com also E-bay Seller AlphaBeautyUK is a reliable source.

    I also own Bird Flutter and Murmuring River too! I think Murmuring River appears to be more sparkly than Bird Flutter (and other golden/champagne base colors)!

    Bird Flutter is really different from the rest of the color but it may appear a bit to loud on me, so I need to apply this color with extremely caution or I will experience an extreme whore look!

    Hi! Can I ask if there is a big price difference between buying at the Flagship store verses buying online? This looks absolutely adorable but I can’t justify the shipping costs for just a few items. ^^;;

  • ann

    ah yes, one of my faves. i’m way too weak when it comes to JS jellies :S gorgeous color.

  • Fayte

    This color looks gorgeous!

    I know what you mean when you say you’re obsessed with the peachy tones during the Spring & Summer.

    I’ve recently discovered that peach tones compliment my skintone rather well, so I’m definitely on the lookout for them now. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • the Muse

      ugh I am absolutely possessed with them this year fayte ;-D and we can expect to see plenty this year!

  • micaela

    Muse you are beautiful! I love your lipgloss choice too. I find AlphabeautyUK to be a reliable seller too. Fast with shipping and if I can’t find what I want and message them and sometimes they list the item for me.

    • the Muse

    “Jelly eye color”! What an interesting phrase. I hadn’t heard of Jill Stuart until now and I didn’t know what to expect the product to look like clicking your post (was thinking along the lines of the Pop lip petal jam! haha). Very pleasantly surprised! This color is very pretty and it looks great on you!

  • Yvonne

    Hi! It looks great on you! You say it is sold in a flagship store in ny? Do you know the address? I can’t find the location on the jill stuart website…. =(

    • the Muse
