Jill Stuart Christmas Coffret 2007 First Impressions



I got my Jill Stuart Christmas Coffret a few days ago. I had promised myself I wouldn't bother with it but I must say I am happy I went ahead and purchased it because it's quite gorgeous!

My favorite item out of the gift set is the very cute satin pouch it came with! It's really roomy and just gorgeous for storing little treasures in! I love this!



The coffret isn't anything to write home about to be honest. It did include some great items but it's nothing you absolutely need so if you missed out buying this rest assured you'll be fine and won't die of lemming. I promise.

The set also included Shimmer Tint Face Gloss which is scented with a beautiful rose. The gloss comes in a mirrored compact that slides easily opened and closed. Very nice item but pointless a bit as it's a balm and I don't particularly care for using balms on my face.

The lipgloss included is a gorgeous shimmering red color which is quite nice. Packaging wise it's very beautiful with the standard jewel look of all Jill Stuart glosses. As I said the color is gorgeous but I'm slightly worried about the applicator. It comes with a sponge applicator but it doesn't appear to pick up much product upon first look! This remains to be seen as I have to smooth some on my lips before judging fully!

You'll also get a cuticle oil which also comes in the gorgeous Jill Stuart packaging with the gem encrusted topper! This is something the Muse can really use as her cuticles are in terrible shape in the winter!

Another favorite of mine is the scented choker! It's quite a nice choker and they give you plenty of ribbon with it so you can tie in snugly around your neck with a bit hanging down for a nice effect! It's quite a pretty piece!



And finally last but never least would be the Brilliance Eyes Palette in the special Christmas packaging! This is a lace palette with ribbon and quite lovely! If you're a collector of the Brilliance palettes this will be something you'll definately appreciate! I somehow fail to get excited about these palettes as the colors tend to leans towards the same thing over and over. The only colors in this palette that really shout at me and are "new'ish" would be the pinky rose color and the bright yellow. The other two shades are similar to what I already have in previous Jill Stuart palettes. This is not to say that the palette isn't lovely because it truly is but I do wish that they'd release some newer shades!

Overall, a beautiful Coffret from Jill Stuart this year but I'd say you can safely skip it unless you're a die hard collector and fan! It's beautiful yes but nothing to get too hyped over!

Oh it looks pretty. But I agree with you. I gave it a pass as the colours look similar to the other JS palettes. :(
