Jill Stuart Website Update

The Jill Stuart website has been updated with the new Smooth Silk Powder Foundation (SPF 20, PA++) set to be released on 7 March in Japan. The website also now has an English version but aside from listing the products in the range, it doesn't have detailed information on the individual products.

The Smooth Silk Powder Foundation is formulated with "Pure Crystal Powder" and a "Soft Focus Powder" for creating an smooth silk-like even finish while reducing the appearance of pores. It also contains almond oil and wild rose extract to help keep skin moisturised. It also has a "Crystal Floral Bouquet" aroma. Most of Jill Stuart's products have a distinctive floral scent, even their eyeshadows so if you're very sensitive to fragrance, these may not work for you. Personally, I like the fragrance as it's not too overpowering and doesn't linger long after application. It's available in only 5 shades so if your skin tone is very pale or tan, it may be difficult to find a colour match. It also has a matte finish unlike the current Powder Foundation which has micro sparkles.

There are only a handful of reviews on currently by ladies who tried out samples of the foundation. The reviews are mostly lukewarm with the most common complaint being that the foundation was not good at covering up pores and required touching up after a few hours. On the plus side, the finish was natural and did not make skin look too powdery dry.
