Moon Over Blogdorf: Jill Stuart's Illuminance Eyes in Dazzling Moon
All lemmings can be traced back to the online beauty juggernaut called Makeupalley. This is like an opium den for beauty addicts and junkies. Every Makeupalley board has their specific beauty drug of choice. The perfume crowd salivate over the new Serge Luten's release. The nail girls talk about the Rescue Beauty Lounge polishes in reverent tones. The fashion gang loves J Crew so much that it is often referred to as "JCrack". The makeup crew has board hiccups when a new MAC collection is launched.
Each board on Makeupalley has different cliques and gangs. For the most part, the boards are friendly and open to newcomers. But there are groups that emerge that can mimic your high school cafeteria.
So who do I think is the coolest group on the makeup board?
The muaers who are into the Japanese makeup brands. Their high school equivalent is the bad girls who smoke behind the gym and date the hottest guys in town. They are the Pink Siths of the world.
I can finally hold my head high in the cool mua circles. I am the proud owner of a Jill Stuart eye shadow palette. Everything that has been written about Jill Stuart cosmetics is 100% true. Pigment and shimmer power can not be matched by anyone. The texture is buttery smooth.
My palette came straight from the shores of Japan. I was very lucky to have a good friend and the very first beauty blogger Koneko do a custom purchase for me. I gave her no direction. All I said was "pick the best one with a whole lot of shimmer fire".
Koneko selected the most magnificent palette called Dazzling Moon. It is slightly unique among the Jill Stuart palettes. It does not have a pinkish shade in the mix. There is a silver fox shimmer with a metallic tint of pale gray, a sheer cold lavender that relects blue, an iris tinged blue and a sooty black with multi-colored shimmer sparks. All infused with a glittery fire that surpasses any US brand.
