Jill Stuart Blush Compact Review 「ジルスチュアート ミックスブラッシュ コンパクト」I've always wanted to do frequent makeup reviews but haven't done many... mainly because I'm lazy. Believe it or not, it actually takes me quite a few hours to finish a blog post. I have to take photos, edit them, upload, then actually write the post. However I decided that I should just stop being lazy and just do what I've always wanted to do. I've been on a role with blogging lately (lol) and I'm going to make a goal of updating once every few days! Hopefully you guys won't get too sick of me haha.
Today I'm going to be doing a quick review on the Jill Stuart Blush Compact. Jill Stuart is one of my favourite makeup brands, the packaging for everything is extremely gorgeous! I got this blush from my friend Joanna as a birthday present a while ago!
The lighting is a bit inconsistent with the photos.. I was taking these in natural lighting and was doing it while the sun was setting =__= I'll try next time to keep it more consistent!
Onto the review~
Today I'm going to be reviewing the Jill Stuart Mix Blush Compact Colour in 07 Lovely Tulip
I've wanted to try this blush out for so long, but I never did because it is really expensive T_T This blush is around $45 for it, but I definitely think it is worth it.
I really love blush, it really completes your makeup and just gives you a nice glowy finish
Makeup all done without blush~
And this is the blush I will be reviewing~
As you can see, the packaging is gorgeous and it also comes with a blush brush attached to it!
Of course, the brush is detachable
Closeups of the brush~
The brush is really soft and the packaging is really convenient. You just open it up, and use the lid of the brush to keep the blush up

As you can see, really lovely packaging!
Swatches of the different blush colours~
As you can see, they are quite shimmery. I like using the 3 pink colours as blush and the white as a highlighter. I don't recommend mixing the pinks with the white as blush as it would look too shimmery. Also these blushes are really pigmented. They also have a slight floral scent to them aswell!
How I apply the blush~
I like to mix all the 3 pink colours together. I start from the top and make my way to the bottom left colour
Then just applying it on my cheeks, I like to bring the blush up along my cheekbones.
Caution: Since this blush is really pigmented, be careful not to apply too much blush on. I find just doing 1-2 gentle swipes on the 3 pink colours is enough for 1 cheek.
Now we're going to highlight our nose and other areas to brighten up our face
I'm going to be using the white colour on this palette. These blushes comes with many different colours, not all the palettes have white but you can use the lightest colour on your palette for this.
Highlighting the bridge of my nose
And just the area underneath my eye above my cheeks
Now your makeup is complete!
As you can see, the pigmentation is great. It gives you a nice rosey glow, but also it's not over powering. Be careful not to apply too much as the colour is buildable and you do end up looking like a clown. It also lasts all day so I definitely recommend it!
