Jill Stuart Illuminance Collection

Jill Stuart Illuminance Collection
Illuminace collection was introduced in Fall 08. Many items from this collection caught my eyes especially the Illuminace Eyes. I had a hard time deciding which one to get and ended up with #4 and #5 which is the limited item. All the four shades are very glittery and lovely, but because they are so glittery, sometimes the glitters do fall out a lot. Another item that I got is the Mix Blush Compact, two limited colors were introduced and I picked up the #101 Platinum. The package of Illunimance mix blush compact is different than the regular one by having lace decoration on the cover and some shimmer decorated on the face of the blushes which goes away after a few uses.
Next month, new shade of Illuminace eyes will be introduced for the Spring collection, I'm not sure whether I'll get it this time as I've collected up a few of JS e/s and now I'd like something more matte than glittery.

Jill Stuart Foundation Kit

This post will be on my most favorite cosmetics brand, Jill Stuart I've just started collecting their stuff this year since b4, their stuff is only available in Japan, but now also in Taiwan and this month in HK!~*

My recent purchases from JS is the foundation kit which came with a newly launched makeup base and powder foundation + a vintage makeup pouch!* Honestly, I got this kit purely becoz of the pouch...

For these 2 products - The makeup base works well to cover pores and smoothing out the skin. It's very watery and dry instantly.. definitely suit ppl with large pores. The smooth silk powder foundation is great as well. I got this in 101, the coverage is about medium to full, not so great with oil control but won't turn dull after a few hrs. Staying power is average. The finishing is matte and silky. Apart from the weak oil controlling power, I really like these 2 products and since the color looks great on my skin, maybe I'll get the liquid foundation next

Samantha Thavasa wallet

Samantha Thavasa New York



Finally, after four years using the same old wallet.. I think this new year is a perfect time to give myself a treat

I have been looking for a new wallet for almost half yr .. but there are too many nice ones out there which gave me a tough time to make a decision! (or maybe I'm just too greedy and want them all lol ) Anyway, I ended up getting this pink long wallet from Samatha Thavasa from the New York collection. I came accross this brand while I was in Japan last year and after that I just fell in love with it I wish there's a shop here but I guess it's best not to LOL

Fragrances

*~ My Fragrances ~*

Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey I bought this one in the summer 2007. Have been wanting it for so long.. because I couldnt choose b/w Gucci Envy Me 2 and this ^^ hehe anyway I ended up with this one~ My all time favourite~

Anna Sui Secret Wish This came out in the Summer 2006 and Jacky bought it for me right away! because the bottle is just tooooo pretti!~* Didnt even bother about the scent lol , just so in loved with the bottle. In the picture shown, I've used up so the actual color of the fragrance is green, very pretty. However, it's not long lasting so I probably wont waste any money on Anna Sui's fragrance again unless I cant resist the packaging.


Chanel COCO Mademoiselle Got this from Mom last time when I went back to Thailand, she had a whole bunch of brand new ones that are still new!!! Still in boxes!!! So I steal this one haha~ becoz it's one of the famous fragrance from Chanel; however, the smell is too strong and I hardly use it .. it's nice for a woman 30+ yrs up, not me haha.

Sisley Eau De Soir Again, another one from mom, she had 2 of them so I took one without trying. The smell is a bit old, suitable for mature women so I'll probably take it back for her lol but then I really like the bottle, so elegant



Celine Dion This one is the first fragrance I received from anyone. It's from Jacky, he gave it to me when I gradated high school! How Sweet?! Well, probably the 1st gift I have ever received from any guys in my life. So I still keep it (but not using it lol) because I dont really like the smell (it's a bit old) but well.. at that time, this was probably the newest fragrance in the market.. so it's new.

Sonia Rykiel Compact Eye Shadow #01

Sonia Rykiel is a brand from Japan, a designer who opens up a cosmetic line as well just like Jill Stuart. HongKong also carries this brand. This is my second product from Sonia, before I also have an eye shadow but it's in green. Well ~ da package looks nice and da color seems pretty but it's not very pigmented, needs a lot to make to color shows up and it fades easily .. quite a disappointment
