Jill Stuart Eye Jelly in 10 Vintage Decor

Midweek wonders:

It is time for a makeup and swatch related post, before I will bomb you with more Etsy goodies. I admit that I haven't pidginholed my blog as a makeup-only blog (my subtitle= stylish items in life) but I do not want to dissapoint the makeup-crowd...teehee, and I love makeup myself as well.

I have finally caved into the Jill Stuart hype of the Eye Jelly. I have read various reviews that were either enthousiastic about the staying power and colours, or warned me about the high amount of sparkle. When I saw that Jill Stuart had released a taupe/grey-esque colour I was willing to take the plunge and judge myself if I would like it, or not.

I'd ordered it on gooddealer.com, as gooddealer often has the best JS deals. It pays off to do a bit of research before going gaga on shopping.



Speaking of going gaga... I always adore the packaging of Jill Stuart, even though I haven't had much luck with most of their items. They still know how to wow a girl with the princessy and luxe style.



Jelly Gel-like gooey texture...It looks like Jello gone DDDAAARK and glittery...(Gothic Jello, anyone?)



The beautiful top....



El swatcho: Ok, it is glittery indeed. I have been wearing it to the garden-center this friday, but it is probably more suitable for a more sparkling venue, such as the party I will attend soon. It is indeed gaga as Lady Ga Ga on tour...Flashy, bold and (to me a bit) OTT.




However, I loved the texture and how it felt and looked on my eyes. My eyelids are stubborn things that decided to become crepey before reaching the crepe-appropriate age...boohoo. That means that not all eyeshadows and eyeshadow-primers look flattering on my.

This, although bold, was behaving wonderfully on my lids. Kudos for that, Jill Stuart, I only could wish for a more mature line of colours with a tad less glitterati.

I like your description of "gothic jello" lol.

I try to use the jellys as a base and layer shadow over it to make it a bit less OTT for work =)

the packaging is most elegant. and the shimmer looks good but it seems lack of colour. *_*

I, too, am afraid of glitter-bomb eyeshadows... so maybe I won't be purchasing this particular JS product.

Your layout is so ultra-cute! :D
