Although I am always fawning over the cuteness of Jill Stuart (I guess it’s more princess than cute?) I haven’t had 100% success with the products and their stuff is £££.
I own one of the Mix Blushers already but I’m not too keen – not enough pigmentation in my opinion.
I decided to buy one of the newer colours to try out to see if it had improved:
Jill Stuart Mix Blush is like a battenburg cake. It’s split into four squares and comes in a gorgeous case with a brush attached.
It really is a work of art!
I chose 12 Candy Orange cos you know I love my oranges! This is half pink (pale pink and hot pink) and half orange (bright tangerine and mid satsuma). I figured that this way I could have a pink or orange cheek, depending on what make up I’ve gone for that day!
The brush – I really dislike this brush. Yes it’s cute, yes, it’s a nice idea but I think it smells funny…like of a horse, and the way it is pushed up is impractical and doesn’t lock in so you need to hold down the lever to keep it up.
I’d prefer this item sold as blush only at a reduced price!
Anyway here it is:
Although this blush is much better than the first range of shades I still think these blushers are slightly chalky. They’re also super soft so the hard brush that comes with it only serves to push a load of powder into the air.
Having said that it does look nice on and wears ok. I just don’t think when all is said and done it’s worth the whopping £38 I paid for it:
Verdict: It’s one of those things that look good but is just average to use, like a stainless steel worktop.
