Jill Stuart Amazonite Dazzle



Jill Stuart shadows have been hugely disappointing for me. I have spent my money to only receive a shadow with chunky glitter with hideous fall out issues. For yonks I have been put off purchasing ANYTHING until I spied the Dream Garden Collection. This collection was created exclusively for Hong Kong and Taiwan so when a friend offered to send me one....I thought that it was time to give Jill Stuart another go.


Jill Stuart still charms with her princess like packaging.

But it is what's inside that counts:

Jill Stuart Amazonite Dazzle

I love the bold earthy shades presented in this palette.

Here is a closer look:



Swatches:

Packing a punch with the pigment! I am so thrilled that this palette isn't wishy washy like some I have owned from the JS stable. There is a marked improvement on the glitter front too. The particles and smaller and much more refined.

Quick EOTD using the palette:

I used the khaki shade (second from left on the palette).

Overall I am so glad that I have this. I don't have a palette that is in anyway similar to this and so it is a unique addition to my collection. I do love good deep green colours even if I am not 100% certain that they suit me.

  2. That has got to be some of the prettiest packaging I have ever seen! The colours are gorgeous as well...I love the first two! I've never tried anything from Jill Stuart but it always catches my eye on eBay. I'm always worried I'll end up buying a fake though! :)

  3. Ah, the packaging on this palette is even more gorgeous than usual!! The swatches look fantastic and pigmented (the JS quads I have now are good but they're not part of her 'regular' pink/black colour scheme). Glad to hear that the glitter has become more refined :)

    Still trying to resist though!!

  10. That would come up gorgeous if you used a wet brush/if you used a black pencil/gel liner base.

    They're a bit glittery for me to use everyday but I'm glad the pigment is strong.

  12. The packaging is gorgeous!
    I wonder how the other palette that was released with this one compares?

  13. I agree that JS eyeshadows are super heavy in glitter. Amazonite Dazzle looks gorgoeus! I love bold earthy shades like these too!

    The khaki green looks so pretty on your eyes! <3

  16. OH! so nice :) i've always looked at JS tutorials and swatches and have been totally off put, even though they LOOK nice.. they don't quite match up to their price tag (and my standards). so glad to hear that they're improving ;D

  17. Gorgeous, both in its palette as on your eyelids...I understand your issues with Jill Stuart eyeshadows, but I am glad to know the glitter got more subtle...Another possible wishlist item for me...

  18. So pretty, this pallette is lush. The colour also brings out the hazel in your eyes.
