I got my package from Kathi this evening. Even though these photos are terribly drab with indoor lighting, I just couldn't wait for the daytime to show you. The packaging is so cute, just like her blog. She even has a blog business card! ;-)
Included in the package was a pink Miffy pen - it's already in my backpack he he. And here is the cute tape with the yellow ducky! I have no use for tape, but I don't have the heart to throw it away.
Pretty nude-pink box with swirly decorations. I wonder how Kathi kept it in such good shape - I know my boxes are usually dented all over. I haven't figured out where to store product packaging. Well, what's inside?
The Jill Stuart Brilliance palette in 04 Gem Amethyst. Yay! *Dance dance* Just the packaging alone inspires me to collect more from this brand.
Look how shiny it is! I'll have to be careful with it though - it's likely to scratch easily. But it's G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S. Like others have mentioned, the case feels very hefty even though it's just plastic. And it closes with a satisfactory *snap!*.
Since reading PJ's (A Touch of Blusher) review on this palette, it's been on my wish list. I was so lucky to have found it on Kathi's blog sale! I'm usually too late to catch all her wonderful sales.
Ta-da! Isn't she lovely? My photos don't do it justice at all...
Ugh, sorry about my kitchen lighting! I think this is a better view of the granite counter-top than the palette itself haha...
In real life, these colors are simply dreamy and have a beautiful sheen. They look like brilliant jewels in a glistening ocean... (Haha, so cheesy!) The mid-tone purple, especially, is more of a pastel.
When I do a formal review of this product, I will include better photos. :)
Have a great week everyone! I'm looking forward to Veterans' Day this Wednesday - no school, and no work... almost paradise! *sigh*~ ~ ~
