Jill Stuart Patisserie 2012 is a limited edition collection of prettily packaged makeup for the lips, eyes, cheeks and nails. The packaging, colors and product names are inspired by pastry shops. “Only girls know the joy of trying to choose something… Enjoy makeup in the same way you enjoy a delicious selection of treats!”
Nail Lacquer N in 5 colors — Condensed Milk (shown below), Marron Cappuccino, Maple Chai, Strawberry Macchiato, Fruity Cocoa; Blush Mix in 2 palettes — Fig Tart, Berry Tiramisu (shown); Sugar Glitter Eyes in 5 colors – Caramelized Sugar, Vanilla Sugar, Rose Sugar, Honey Sugar, Framboise Sugar (swatches, from left to right).
I got the Custard Lip pot (so pretty!) in Orange Custard (center color, below). It has a gentle, sweet smell (not really custardy) and comes in a “semi-matte finish”. I was hoping that the color would look as pigmented and matte as the model in the picture but it turned somewhat sheer and lip-balm-ish in texture. Upon layering it looks a bit too neon bright against my tanned skin, but as a base for slightly darker lipsticks, it works great.
Custard Lip pots are available in Orange Custard , Cherry Custard , Almond Custard, Chocolate Custard and Apple Custard.
I love the apothecary jar inspired perfume bottles from Maison Martin Margiela’s “Replica” fragrance collection. Replica Flower Market, above, with freesia, rose, tuberose and jasmine notes, sounds yummy. Also available in Beach Walk and Funfair Evening.
