Jill Stuart blush blossom dual cheek color in 102 Classic Camellia Review and Swatch

August 30, 2011

The Jill Stuart blush blossom dual cheek color in 102 Classic Camellia from its 2011 Fall Collection is pretty, from little details such as the embedded diamante to the signature Jill Stuart floral scent in every product.  Like most girls I got lured into Jill Stuart makeup for their pretty packaging, then I found myself addicted as I find the quality of their products are just as superior.

It retails for around $50 USD over the counters in Asia which I think is reasonably priced for what you get. The duo blush comes in loose pigment form – one side is for the cheek and the other is an illuminator. It also comes with a decent sized retractable brush that feels of high quality.

However the design of this blush gives you really good control over how much product to dispense by gently pressing the brush into the mesh. You can then use the inner lid to mix the color or remove excess powder.

It has slight shimmer in it when swatched on my arm but doesn’t really show up on my face. If your complexion is warm-toned and you have trouble finding a blush that shows up as baby pink without the lavender and mauvy tone, this is the blush to go for. The highlighting shade is a shimmery ivory white with a pink undertone. When used sparingly it gives a soft glow to the face.

FOTD:

Both shades are very pigmented – a little bit of it goes a long way and they lasted on me for the whole day. I applied the cheek color on my apples then the highlighter along the top of my cheekbones.

I personally find that Japanese brands make the best cool toned pink blushes for Asian complexions. Comparison of some possible dupes:

I’ve always wanted to try a Jill Stuart product, mostly for the packaging. It seems the blushes would be my best choice. How does this compare to any of the older JS blush releases? Do you have any?

I’m excited to see swatches of your other blush too :)

Yeh I have the js blushes from the permeant lines. This one is slightly more shimmery than the other ones that I own.

I love the design of the dispenser – it would definitely make the loose pigments easier to work with because I get clumsy too. I adore the princess-y packaging that JS have- even the brush is so gorgeous! Sadly, I haven’t tried JS yet.

The blush looks really good on you hun~ You look so youthful and fresh~

Looks like SLEEK Pixel Pink is a likely dupe contender too! I’m not a fan of princess-y stuff, but your mention of the pigmentation of the powder is tempting the girl in me, haha!

Hehe I wasn’t a fan of priness-y stuff until I saw Jill Stuart makeup irl :P

I love Jill Stuart’s packaging and their princess look style. The brush and the case are just too perfect.

You look great with the blush.

Hello! Oh my goodness Jill Stuart makeup looks absolutely gorgeous colors and packaging, everything! I just wish I could swatch the blushes myself :-( maybe one day, just more of a reason to go to Japan ^_^ Would you say this duo blush is comparable to Chanel’s Tweed Pink as far as color and shimmer? I’m REALLY wanting to get Tweed Pink but this JS blush is just as pretty but not as accessable, so I wasn’t sure if Tweed Pink would be a good non Asian dupe.

Being Asian myself I ache for some Asian cosmetics but not many places sell them here in the US and it’s always difficult for me to pick the correct colors online only. And I kind of hate waiting for packages lol I like instant gratification and to be able to swatch makeup on myself cause my skintone is a weird shade of light-ish medium olivey color :-p
