Swatches and Review: Jill Stuart Palette in Glazed Garnet

4 years ago

Jill Stuart makes one of the most expensive and most well-packaged makeup in my opinion. Its eyeshadow quad runs somewhere between $55-$65. Its availability is also quite limited as most of the time people order them online, especially in North America.

I`ve been wanting to try Jill Stuart products ever since I first got into makeup, maybe purely because of how princess-y the packaging looked. But $60 is a steep price to pay for something that I can`t even test out before buying. Luckily, I was able to score a gently used one off of a makeup forum a few weeks ago. Even used Jill Stuart is hard to come by so I bought it right away after seeing it being posted. It`s in the color <strong>Glazed Garnet</strong> and I believe it came out in 2008. Yes, I know, that`s a long time ago. BUT, there are really no unique colors in Jill Stuart palettes, so I thought it didn`t matter whether I got an old release or a new one.

<strong>Here`s what I think</strong>
Without a base, these eyeshadows have very poor color payoff with lots of shimmer that WILL result in fall outs.

With a base, if you pack them on, the color payoff of the darker 2 shades are actually pretty good. Still, lots of almost chunky shimmer.

I`ve only tried 1 product from Jill Stuart, so I can`t speak about the whole brand. But speaking in terms of this product alone, it`s overpriced. The colors and formula are not unique in any way though. I do like it though as I don`t have anything that`s so sparkly and I think it will look great for a night out. It also doubles as a vanity desk decoration as the design of the case is just so pretty.

Bottom line? If you like LOTS of shimmer and really want to splurge on something, this is a good product to get. If you are looking for a good price to quality ratio, steer clear of this line unless you can test out the products somehow before buying.
