Swatches: Jill Stuart Lipstick Part 1

[image from ichibankao.com]

Today we are going to take a look at Jill Stuart lipsticks. These retail for 850NTD which is about 26USD, so pretty pricey! They are more sheer than full on pigment, which seems to be popular in Japanese lines, very shiny and come in 19 colors. Beware--these ARE scented with rosey floral and do not seem to dissipate. I would compare these to tinted lipbalms more than lipstick.

07-10 are pretty much clear on my arm. This is after several swipes--that's how pigmented these are, but those are sheer colors.
07 is a light nude, but of course you can't tell that on my arm...
08 is a light baby pink, but again hard to tell on my arm.
09 has more pigment and is a medium cool leaning pink.
10 is a very frosty light lilac lipstick. I can't see it looking too great honestly...

Keep in mind that while these look very scary in the tube [especially number 1 as a bright scarlet red!] they turn very wearable on the lips.
Are you eying any?


  1. I've been eyeing these for a LONG time. Thanks for the swatches! I'm still scared to buy though. I'm afraid I'll be allergic and be stuck with a very expensive lipstick tube lol. Also, if these are anything like the Dior High Shines, only the darkest colors show up differently on my lips sadly.

  2. Hi Catherine! Thanks for visiting again! :) Yeah you have a possibility of being allergic, and especially with the scent on these! And yes, for pigmented lips I think only the brighter/darker colors will be different once applied :/.

  3. Whoo! I NEED #1 and #6. lol. thanks for the swatches. This is VERY VERY helpful!

  4. Hey Elvira! :D :) No problem! I have my eye on number 1 as well. Thanks for visiting!

  5. Hi, I'm eyeing on no 4.
    from the online swatch, it looks very orangey
    but it looks pinkish on your hand >_<
    I'm quite confused.. hehe

    anyway, is no.4 very sheer?
    how many times you need to swipe to show no.4 color?

    thank you~ XD

  6. Hey! Number4 is definetly pinkish, online swatches are unfortunately never very accurate in my experience :/. Number 4 is semi sheer; not as pigmented as number 1 but not as sheer as 7-10 :) I believe I swiped that one 3 times on my arm!

    Hope you visit again soon :)

  7. Hi, thanks so much~
    it really helps me alot.
    now im convinced to get no.4

    thank you~ XD
    *just followed you*

  8. :) no problem! Unfortunately I can't do any more swatches as I'm back home now : ( [USA]. I hope you continue to enjoy my blog!
