[Review] Jill Stuart Duo Blush Blossom 02 Sweet Mum

This was from my Hong Kong trip in 2012 but as sad as it sounds it was too pretty to use so that is why it has taken me so long to even test it out. Jill Stuart never fails to wow with the intricate packaging and design of their products and this is definitely one of their selling points. I bought this for $370 HKD which is approximately £31. It also comes with a cute brush with a bow charm. Although I haven't tested out the brush as it seems a bit thin so I choose to use my trusty MAC 129SH brush instead. The blush comes with a set of instructions and for me unluckily it is all in Chinese but they basically suggest 2 techniques which you can use with this blush, 'Sweet' and 'Seductive'.

This white cap is supposedly where you are suppose to tap off the
 excess blush but is seems far too messy.
On the left is a peachy orange which is the 'Shimmer Tint Powder'
whilst on the left is a pink which is the 'Blush Glow Powder'

What I do is apply the orange on first and then use the pink on top. As it is loose powder it was quite difficult to get the right amount at first and it can get quite messy but once you get use to it, it is okay. I do like the overall colour that it gives but it is very shimmery, I don't think I will wear this out in summer as I can imagine it turning my face into a glitter ball. The blush has a nice, not-too-strong, rose smell to it and it is quite pigmented. However it isn't easy to access Jill Stuart products in the UK and the price is high. I don't hate the product but I don't love it either.
