I dun care about posting my KL trips first. I will post this entry first because I just can’t wait to share this~ I always have a soft spot for this brand because not only its packaging is nice, it scent and colours are so irresistible. I actually got this mook (憧れの“JILL顔”レシピA to Z” (Jill Face Recipe A to Z)) before Christmas. This is Jill Stuart 3rd Mook and has released on 8th December 2011 in Japan at 1470yen. (For more info, do check out Iris’s blog)
I also blog about the 2nd mook here, do check it out if you haven’t done so previously~
*Warning: this shall be a picture intensive post from here on*
Please do not edit off my watermark and credit my photo if u are using them. I took lots of effort to take them~
Tada~ The new Jill Stuart 3rd Mook – 憧れの“JILL顔”レシピA to Z” (Jill Face Recipe A to Z)~
Just a sneak shot of the latest 2012 Spring Collection “Bare Petal”~
All the previous spokesperson for Jill Stuart since 2007. Seriously I still love the 2008 one most~
Jill Stuart makeup techniques for eyes
This Japanese girl is just so seductive in a very subtle way~ I stare at her for 10 seconds before flipping~
In case u wonder how Jill Stuart look like. That’s her!
How can they not featured their new release Vanilla Lust?
The gifts in this mook with purchase of the mook. I was just attracted to it~
The gift is in this box!~ *Sorry I messed up with the lightings of this photo*
Okay. I am giving too much suspense!~ Taking the gifts from the box
I must admit the first look disappoint me a bit.
Taking it out of the box~
The 2 gifts from the mook. They are nice~
The netted storage for flat small items.
The inner storage. I have to admit the size is really pretty. It can fit 500ml bottle of beauty product so u might not necessary just put makeup products~
Happy family shot of the mook and the gift.
I will explain why I am kinda of disappointed. I seriously bought this mook bec I just love Jill Stuart and basically I dun understand what they are writing too. However, the content and the photos featured in the mook is just too pretty to be ignored. They did a makeup techniques section this time round too. But the texture of the gift is kinda of disappointed. I expected it to be soft and smooth like the previous 2 mooks. I guess that they chose this tougher texture to make sure that it look more sturdy but it sort of sacrifice its dainty feeling~ The good thing about this mook is the gift comes in a coin and tissue pouch plus a makeup bag. The volume is also bigger than the previous 2 and it can put toner inside which is good for ladies who travel~ I guess the design was to ensure that it can fit their beauty products. I think this is a good effort that can bring convenience to ladies~
Next is to showcase the haul that my brother got me. I don’t really wish to thank him since he did not buy this for me as a gift (He very giam towards me) but still need to thank him to making a trip specially to Langham Place to get this perfume. I did asked him to get the Christmas set too but he totally pretend he did not hear me. Kinda of expected from an Otaku like him~ Still I think is better than nothing.
He bought the 50ml one and they free a miniature one which is 4ml!~
The box is quite difference from the previous Night Jewel and Jill Stuart perfume. This box seems to be chemically treated with waterproof texture~
Side 1: Some Japanese instruction~
Side 2: The meaning of this release as well as its ingredients.
Aren’t they a beauty?
I have to admit that the scent is just heaveanly and much better than I expected. Since I don’t really know what vanilla smell like and is freaking worried that it might smell like MCD ice cream~ Plus I saw coconut in one of their top note and I am really worried but it came out nothing like what I imagine and the scent is just sweet smelling fragnant. I have to admit the price is kinda of on the high range but being a fan of Jill Stuart, this is a item that you must collect!~
