Jill Stuart Bright Silk Powder Foundation 101 Linen 103 Nude Swatches and Review

If we could perfect our face and minimize those pores along with removing blemishes how lovely that would be. After we have a face that is like a brand new sheet of drawing paper, we could draw which ever look we wanted on our face to make it look as if Da Vinci was the artist. We can now go a step further with Jill Stuart’s Bright Silk Powder Foundation. The foundation even brightens!

Anyways, I am currently loving the new Jill Stuart Bright Silk Powder Foundation. It not only brings a detailed elegant princess design, it holds a powder foundation that is silky smooth and flawless upon touch.

Jill Stuart Bright Silk Powder Foundation brings the brand’s foundation to a whole new playing field. If you haven’t seen the press release please check it out here.

The powder foundation comes in a reusable compact B and refill so all you really need is to buy the case once. There are 5 shades for you to choose from in the entire line.

Here are two photos of the box design and product information on the side and back of the box.

I have 2 colors 101 linen and 103 nude that I’ll be showing you today. 101 linen is light ocher and 103 nude is standard ocher.

Even inside of the box has drawings of Jill Stuart design on pink background. It is quite pretty.

Powder foundation compact B case is in a pearly white colored top design with silvery detail. The charm on the side is a floral white ribbon that brings a blissful look.

The architect on this case comes double tiered. Starting with the bottom tier, you could see the crystal clear bottom with a round mirror attached on the opposite side. On the top tier, is the compartment for the sponge.

Here is a look at the detailing of the lid.

Each refill comes with a plastic case that secures them in place. If you flip the refill upside down you would be able to see the information including color. The white sticker on the center right is for holding the refill in place when installed in the compact. You can also peel off the color information and stick it on the compact to remind you which shade you are. I will show you where I stuck mine in a bit.

On the side of the case box shows the instruction on how to install the refill.

I took the photo to show you where I took the label off the refill.

Don’t forget to take the plastic film with you too!

The plastic film is to be used as a safeguard for the foundation inside the case. It also keeps the mirror clean.

On the back of the compact palette is a hole. I have marked it with a white arrow. If you finish using the powder, you can simply just pop out the empty compact refill and put in a new one. It’s as simple as that.

I also stuck the 103 nude label to the back sticker as well since it can be torn off. This way, I know which color I am using.

Now let’s talk about both foundation colors. 101 linen is the lightest color in the series with pink tones whereas 103 nude is perfect for my skin. 103 has a little yellow undertone to it but overall it is an exact match. Since my 101 linen refill came in cracked during transit, I feel really sad to show it in the post. But if you click here, you can see a side by side comparison of both shades.

I decided to stick the palette’s casing in direct sun for you to see the details. There are shimmers and pearlescent colors reacting to the sun’s rays if you look at the 3rd photo.

Obviously what is a foundation without a little stress test? We don’t mean carrying weights and putting extreme pressure on the foundation but just a tad bits of water. Basically, I am mimicking the effects of sweat and possibly even rain or spilled water. With tads bits here and there of water, the foundation still sticks in place making it water resistant. This should be great for spring and the upcoming summer season.

I’ve been wearing 103 nude for 2 days. I really like the semi-matte finish along with SPF 22 factor in it. The powder is super finely milled that goes on flawlessly. The sparse crystal powders add luminosity to the skin giving it a soft focus effect. But you really can’t see the shimmers so it looks very natural on the face. The coverage falls in sheer to medium with buildability. The powder doesn’t sink into pores and lines, instead they are minimized along with other imperfections. Oil control is also great. I only started to see shines on my T-zone area after about 4 hours, which doubled the time without it. I also enjoyed the Crystal Floral Bouquet scent that is so pleasant yet so subtle.

I am totally impressed by the quality of the Bright Silk Powder Foundation. It has everything I could ask for for a powder foundation, great coverage, SPF protection, flawless finish, and it even brightens up the complexion without the shine. The reusable compact makes it even more practical. If the refill is used up, you can simply get another refill instead of buying the whole compact. That will save you the cost for the compact. And not to mention the elegant and delicate princess packaging design from Jill Stuart that I adore. If you are looking for a long lasting foundation that gives you the translucent glow from within, you will love this!

    I feel so sorry for you that the other color was damaged during shipment. That totally sucks.
