One of my recent beauty hauls is Jill Stuart new spring color for 2011, Jewel Crystal Eyes in 07 Sweet Amethyst.
This is a quad palette with a pale purple, pale pink, a light brown with a reddish tint, and a deeper brown for lining, all with shimmers and a nice rose scent to the eyeshadow.
Swatches on my arm:
Trying the eyeshadow out on my eyes, under direct sunlight:
And under the lamp, you can see the glitters better:
The casing for the eyeshadow, needless to say, is a classy "princessy" kind of packaging, as Jill Stuart cosmetic is trademark for. Though some people didn't like the feel of cheap plastic that Jill Stuart eyeshadow is housed in, I am fine with it.
For the quality of the powders, it's not the most pigmented type of eyeshadow, but it actually performs better than the KATE or MJ eyeshadows I own. The texture of this powder is nice, not chalky at all, as it is creamy with a little bit of perfumed fragrance in it. The glitters are quite fine and not much fall out is noticeable with this palette.
Overall I like this eyeshadow palette, just that I think the pinks and purples that is quite common with Jill Stuart eyeshadow collections is not meant for me, as I think I am better with warm earth tones for my skin tone (I'm a NC 30). Regardless, I still think that this light purple hue is nice for the much anticipated spring here :)
