Jill Stuart Jelly Lip Gloss 21 Dreamy Paradise review/ swatch

Jill Stuart jelly lipgloss in number 21, Dreamy Paradise was limited edition for 2011 collection.

As usual, Jill Stuart really only makes things in the pretty pink/peach/apricot/strawberry pink sort of category, which means when it comes to sheerer lipglosses, once on the lips many of the colors will look so similar.

21 Dreamy Paradise is a shimmery apricot peach with some pink, but more apricot/peach. The shimmers infused are not very dense (but still visible), they are also very fine which means they look natural on the lips. The shimmers flash a bit pink but generally blends into the base color of the lipgloss.

The Jelly Lipglosses all come with the slant tube applicator (like Lancome juicy tubes, but with way prettier packaging).

Here's the swatch- exactly like in the tube.

However, you can see once blended out, the color is very very sheer. It will not cover those with more red lips, but will just tone it down slightly. This makes those no-brain slap on lipglosses when you are in a hurry though.

As with most Jill Stuart items, they come with the signature scent which is a bit sweet and fruity.

The lipglosses are medium tackyness, they don't seem to migrate out of the liplines a whole lot so they stay relatively put.

Overall rating is 3/5.

21 Dreamy Paradise, while looks so pretty and babypeach like in the tube, it could do with a bit more color payoff. It's not completely clear, but for those with even medium rosy lips this will probably just blend in and disappear.
