Jill Stuart is pretty much the epitome of cute and girly when it comes to their makeup range. The entire brand is quite the undisputed champion in this area, and if you like your makeup to be cute, girly and sparkly, look no further.

I bought this from a blogsale some time ago and got a pretty sweet deal for it.

The packaging is definitely one of the more gorgeous ones I’ve seen, and it’s their attention to details that has helped Jill Stuart capture the hearts of many ladies.

Illuminance Eyes 06 Blossoming Shine is a sweet looking quad, not quite my usual neutral shades, but very pretty nonetheless.

I debated whether or not to get this as pink shade can go terribly wrong on my skintone, but I’d saw some swatches online that reassured me that this is a palette I can work with.

Swatched in natural light.

Swatched in flash light.

The flash really captures the shine and shimmer quite well. One thing about Jill Stuart’s eyeshadows is that shimmer and sparkles are par for course. I’ve yet to encounter any of their eyeshadows that are not shimmery/glittery. Fall out is a concern, but the problem can be reduced by using a good eyeshadow base.

Thankfully, the quad doesn’t lean too cool pink on my skintone, in fact it leans more plummy and even a little neutral especially the last two shades. It’s too shimmery for everyday office wear, but perfect for a night out or a special occasion. As always, Jill Stuart makeup is a joy to use and have sitting pretty on your makeup counter =)
