Jill Stuart Layer Blush Compact 01 Baby Berry Spring 2013 Makeup 1

.

Since I reviewed Jill Stuart‘s Mix Blush Compact in 01 Baby Blush, I have been going back to it quite frequently and it has gradually become one of my favorite blushers. In spring 2013, Jill Stuart not only released a new blusher, Layer Blush Compact, but also brought out Mix Blush Compact N (a revamped version of the original). There were ten blushers in the collection altogether, which was great for a blusher enthusiast like me. I was keen to try Layer Blush Compact, and I decided to go for 01 Baby Berry.

There is something quite Japanese about Bobbi Brown’s Surf & Sand Eye Palettes for summer 2014. Japanese beauty lines, such as Lunasol, often release eyeshadow palettes with warm neutrals and those with combinations of neutrals and greens/blues for summer, and the Surf & Sand Eye Palettes remind me of them.

Jill Stuart Relax Eau de White Floral Eau de Cologne Holiday 2012 Fragrance 1

.

The first fragrance release from Jill Stuart in Japan was a trio of scents (Jasmin Fleur, Night Blooming Lily and Vanilla Lust) back in 2006. (According to Fragrantica, these three scents were released (presumably in North America) in 2005.) I remember wanting to try Jasmin Fleur at the time, and I nearly decided to buy one on eBay. (They were never available in the UK.)

Over the following few years, Jill Stuart released more fragrances (such as Jill by Jill Stuart (2007), Night Jewel (2009) and Vanilla Lust (2011, a different version)), but it was Relax Eau de White Floral that got me interested again. It was released in December 2012 soon after the brand debuted the Relax bodycare range in September.

Dior’s spring 2014 Trianon makeup collection has a diverse range of colors, with shades of pink, peach, green, blue, purple, and gray. The highlights of the collection are the two Trianon Palettes, but some of the other items, such as the Trianon Editions of 5 Couleurs, Diorshow Mono and Diorblush, look impressive as well.
