Joe Fresh Makeup Haul, Swatches & Review

The other day I did a review on one of Joe Fresh's lipstick and it got me thinking about all my other Joe Fresh makeup so I thought Id go through it and give my thoughts on the items I have and have tested.

(Left to Right)
Cheek Tint in Nude
Pencil Eyeliner in Pearl
Fine Tip Liquid Eyeliner in Black
Cream Lipstick in Cinnamon
Lip Gloss in Candy
Lip Stain in Sheer Pink
Eyeshadow in Plum
Eyeshadow in Black
Cheek Tint in Nude
I bought this as a cream highlighter but honestly I have only used it once. I'm more of a powder highlight lover but will give this item another chance one of these days.

Pencil Eyeliner in Pearl
I use this eyeliner daily to line my inner lower waterline. The pigment is ok but for approx $4 cdn I don't mind keeping this in my personal kit. For professional use I like Lise Watier or Mac's white liners. *Tip: white liner on your lower waterline can help eyes appear bigger and make you look more awake!

Fine Tip Liquid Eyeliner in Black
Again another item I use daily! This item has got to be my favorite Joe Fresh item because its SO easy to use and makes a perfect line every time. It is not however ideal for a professional kit or for sharing as there is really no way to sanitize it. This item comes in black and brown only which is the only disappointing thing about this product.

Cream Lipstick in Cinnamon
Please see my review for this item HERE!

Lip Gloss in Candy
This gloss looks great alone (see pic) or on top of any lipstick. Its not really sticky which is key for me and comes with a brush applicator. I like this product and there is really nothing bad to say about it.

Lip Stain in Sheer Pink
This item ROCKS! I compared Joes Fresh's lip stain to CoverGirl's Outlast lip stain and the results shocked me. As you can see below I swatched CG's on top and JF's on the bottom. After 30 mins I rubbed my finger over the two and found that CG's swatch rubbed off slightly while JF's didn't budge. I then washed my hands and CG's swatch was totally gone where as JF's swatch was still about 10% there.

Not what I expected but I was happy that something that costs about $8 cdn beat out a product that is slightly more expensive at $11 cdn and attached to a more well known brand name.

That being said I do wear this lip stain on occasion and notice that after my morning coffee the color is substantially less. You will most likely have to re-apply this stain after you eat or drink but if you aren't fond of the feeling of lipstick or gloss on your lips this is a great alternative!

Eyeshadow in Plum & Eyeshadow in Black
I have only tested these 2 colors and so far I'm pretty impressed that for approx $4 cdn you can get shadows this pigmented. These are great matte colors and you can see from the swatches below that the color pay off isn't bad. These dark shades are great for placing in your crease or outer "V" and blend nicely. I wouldn't mind testing out some of their shimmer or frost colors just to see if the pigments are the same.

Joe Fresh's beauty prices are very reasonable so why not give it a try ;)

Pin It!

Thanks for the review, it'd come in handy if I one day venture to the JF shelf

I've been sending some Joe stuff for the swaps. I will need to try that lip stain!

And as for that black liner it is NEVER in stock at my JF. AArgh.

Wow the liquid liner is unexpectedly pigmented, I think I'm going to have to examine the Joe Fresh line a little closer next time I'm in Superstore. So far I only have one lipstick from them (in Strawberry). I like that it's matte but as always, I wish it wasn't so drying because the color is so vibrant. I was pleasantly surprised by the colour selection they have.

Thanks for posting your review on Joe Fresh :D I was always a little skeptical since there are so few reviews on them so far and hate getting a drawer full of things I don't use :S

Farah nice review but you forgot to mention about the "Cream Lipstick in Cinnamon" are Joe Fresh's lipsticks good? dry? if you can compare it with other products like mac lipsticks it would be awesome!<3
