A couple of posts back, I mentioned how I miserably failed this month at my "no buy" status. My packages--yes packages--have started arriving and I was most excited by the one that I received from Cosme-De.Com.
They were having a special for customers who pay using PayPal--10% off your purchases! I don't know how long this special will be running but I believe that it's still ongoing. I decided to purchase my first ever Jill Stuart Eyeshadow Palette since it would work out to be a good deal. I got Jill Stuart Illuminance Eyes in 08 Dazzling Moon.
It is a beautiful palette with colors that I really like.
Here's a quick EOTD that I did today using the palette. The only other items used were UDPP in Sin, K-Palette eyeliner and a touch of Gokubuto mascara.
I had heard that Jill Stuart eyeshadows may be overly glittery and not as well pigmented as other brands. I think that pigmentation for most Japanese brands are on the lighter side. It was a bit of a worry for me as I like my shadows to be well pigmented. I am happy to say that the last two colors, which are the prettiest, are nicely pigmented. The shadows are on the glittery side but still quite wearable for me. I am so happy that I purchased this palette.
I also received an order from Sasa, which was Face Q masks and something else that I need to trial before I do a review on it. I also just received my iMomoko order, which was just replacing some staples that I'm running low on. Still awaiting 3 more packages--Sephora (I got the 15th Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette!), Shu Uemura (because they have free shipping) and Haute Look, my first ever purchase from them although I signed up a long time ago. I can't remember if there was anything else.
