Oh Jill Stuart. You create the most beautiful looking lipsticks in glossy textures, that are hard to resist.
The newest lipstick to join the Jill Stuart family is ‘Lip Blossom’ and debuts with 10 shades. I adored their last lipstick releases – the texture is gorgeous – so I presumed this would be a winner too.
?Lipstick that gently, lightly spreads across your lips, as though melting, providing a fresh luster and pure, bright color.
?As refreshing as the dew from a flower, leading to you soft lips that feel as though moisture is welling up from inside.
?Provides beautiful, popping color yet with a highly translucent, pure appearance, for full, plump lips that look like delightful tulips.
?A single application can provide lustrous lips, while subsequently tapping your lips with your finger also allows a matte finish to be enjoyed.
?The design is themed in a mixture of Thumbelina, born from a flower, and vintage jewelry. An overall arabesque design of winding vines, and the surface of the lipstick is cut with a diamond shape.
Here are the colours – all very wearable, pretty shades – I chose 01 Ranuculus Veil because…it was the only one left. But you can see there’s not really that much between them all anyway and JS lip colours tend to be quite sheer.
Let’s talk about the packaging. The silvery case has carving type detail and the lid has a flip up top with a mirror underneath.
Whilst it looks VERY pretty, it was actually a disappointment to me – it feels cheap and lightweight and the mirror is so small that it’s pretty useless.
Is anyone’s mouth/face that small? Don’t answer that.
Ranunculus Veil is a pretty light peachy pink. It’s quite light and almost orangey on my skin tone. It’s shimmer free and has a watery shine glossy finish which actually lacks the depth and prettiness of previous Jill Stuart lipsticks. On top of that the shine is one dimensional and it’s just very….average.
On the plus side the soft texture of this lipstick makes is super comfortable to wear, like a lip balm, HOWEVER, on the downside it barely lasts – within half an hour i have nothing left on my lips.
