Jill Stuart Debut

Another scheduled post....
Apparently, there has always been a Jill Stuart counter in the Shinsegae Department Store. I never knew about it because it's at and area of Seoul I haven't even heard of. I can't remember where either haha.
I went to a book store earlier, and flipped through the Korean version of In Style or Cosmo and saw JS items in it! I had no idea that JS was availalbe in Korea, so now I had to look for the counter.

When I went on the JS website, there was "Korea" available, I think it's new, otherwise I would have seen it there earlier. So I found the nearest JS counter and it was a Shinsegae Dept at Myeong Dong and they recently opened up the counter on August 14.

I went there the next day with buying the blush in mind. I didn't think it would cost more than 60,000won, but it did, it was 75,000won and I got it anyway. I got a JS cellphone charm as a GWP.
I also bought another Orbis Cleansing Liquid. My last little haul in Korea!

This is Fresh Apricot. The brush that comes with it is really cute, but I'm terrible at using small brushes for blush, so to me, it was difficult to get it even on my cheek. The powder is very soft and nicely pigmented, but not so pigmented that it's difficult to blend. I like how I can mix the colors or use each individually.

For the FOTD, here's what I used. I just wrote the tutorial on the picture. I also used the JS blush, just under the apples of my cheeks up towards the ears.

Terrible lighting in here.

Well I'm gonna be at the airport by now! I'm very worried that my luggages are too heavy. It's so difficult to pack a year of your life into 2 luggages. I hope to find something at the Duty Free shop.

You look rather blooming ^^ I have yet to try Jill Stuart.. too bad they are so pricey :(

Pop Champagne said...

oooh I love Jill Stuart's packaging, it's so cute and shiny! I'm also not good at using small brushes for blush, I always find that there's that 1 stroke that is too pigmented then I have a hard time evening it out LOL!!

And yeah it's super hard to pack esp with the weight limit eh!? Sigh... Have a safe flight!!
