FOTD: JS Illuminance Palette #07 + Illamasqua Blush Tremble

This look is done using Jill Stuart Illuminance Eyeshadow Palette in 07 Layered Gem; it was pretty hastily done so pardon the bad blending and awful hair 😦


Products Used:

The first shade (chunky silver glitter) is amazingly smooth and buttery to the touch. Best applied with fingers as using a brush will cause a lot of fly-outs. I’m not too sure if I like this palette at all as it makes me look dirty; I won’t stop using this but I don’t use this very frequently at all.

As with all JS products, this is very high quality. Also has a slight fruity scent which I absolutely love. With the exception of the darkest blue-gray shade, each shadow is finely-milled, soft and pigmented.

Illamasqua Tremble Blush:

An absolutely beautiful pale pink blush in pan. However after application, it turned out a teenyweeny bit peachy. I had layered it over Canmake’s Cream Blush hoping to increase the pink but unfortunately, it didn’t 😦

I love Illamasqua blushers, they come with that signature MAC vanilla scent which I find very comforting!


FOTD: Coffret D’Or CM Eyes #04 ft. Jill Stuart Blush #09

A purple eye makeup to complement my lilac nails! I love wearing purples, they really bring out asian eye colours (dark brown) well, and this type of purple do not make me look bruised as well. I am using Kanebo Coffret D’Or Color Mix Eyes in #04.


Close up on eye colour:

It is super duper shimmery, just the way I like my eyeshadows to be. The Japanese really know their stuff!

Products I used:

I mixed the two top most shades and applied on the entire eyelid, contoured the crease/outer-V with the darkest purple and highlighted using the matte chalk-white shadow.

Loving the Jill Stuart Mix Compact Blush in #09 Little Bouquet:

No swatches on arm because it is too sheer to be captured by my camera but I hope you guys can see it applied on my cheeks. Very lovely peachy colour that gives a subtle translucence to the skin.
