I was actually not interested to get any of the new Jill Stuart palettes... I am just not that keen on JS eyeshadow palettes anymore and none of the colors caught my eye...
However I couldn´t resist the new limited palette produced for the Taiwanese market but popping up in the online shops in Hong Kong now (I got mine from Alphabeautyuk on eBay but I have also seen this on Gooddealer. I recommend Alphabeauty though as he ships faster and there are no stupid handling fees which makes the seemingly cheaper price on Gooddealer pretty much null and void).
I liked the look of the new palette as it´s a true taupe/pink combo and of course i was a bit curious how the newest generation of eyeshadow palettes from JS would feel like.
The case is as princessy as always, in a silver color and adorned with lots of designs.
The texture of the Jewel Crystal Eyes is very soft and pigmented, even a bit powdery but there isn´t much dusting or fall-out so to me it´s a pretty perfect texture.
The shadows are shimmery and/or metallic and blend/apply very nicely and they stay put nicely all day long on me.
These are scented which is totally unnecessary in my opinion but it´s not a bothersome fragrance.
101 contains a very pale shimmery pink, metallic dusty flesh pink, metallic taupe and shimmery deep gray (almost black) with some fine micro-glitters.
I really love this palette, it´s the best I have tried from Jill Stuart so far.
Rating 5/5 despite the heavy price-tag (RRP 5250 Yen). You get the quality you pay for =)
