Review: Joe Fresh Duo Concealer in Light

12 Jul

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I picked up any Joe products but here is one for you. For those who don’t know Joe Fresh makeup line is an exclusive (though there are talks for Joe Fresh stores to open in the US in the future) to Canadian shoppers at their local Loblaws or Superstore locations. Anyways, onto the review!

(Top: Stick, Bottom: Cream)

Review: First off I have to say that I love the idea of two products in one and this is just perfect. There’s a concealer for what type of concern you are concealer, generally liquid for the undereye area and the stick for acne blemishes or other face discoloration. Both the products work very well on the face and blends out very nicely. The cream/liquid is quite more pigmented compared to the sitck side. I feel like it’s a bit drying especially on my undereye area. Another bad thing is that I chose the wrong shade (evidently shown in the photo) so I ended using this as a color base for my eyeshadows (which work great as well it’s not as great as some other opaque bases). Another downside is that it only comes in three shades. THREE shades! Light, Medium and Dark. Kinda sad in the color selection… but overall a pretty good duo concealer please Joe release more shades!!

Cost: $8CDN @ Superstore/Loblaws

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product but for me I would like to pick up the next darker shade and give it a go. It’s a pretty good concealer and works very well I would recommend this product for sure.

Review: Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Oily Skin

24 Jul

The ever popular foundation used on Youtube and the most loved I suppose. Sorry for the flash and my shade is in Sand Beige.

Review: I have not as much experience with foundation as most people would have if they were a makeup artist but I have learned. This was my first liquid foundation and man was it hard to determine what foundation technique I should use with it. I ended up doing the stippling method, foundation brush, and the sponge method never liking any of them but the stippling method (but it was a pain to clean the brush takes 2 days for it to fully dry). Even though this foundation was pretty much liquid it gave the coverage required (medium to full) and worked as all those people on Youtube have said. Drugstores do have a good range of colours for people of different skin tones and this colour matched me really well. For the oily skin formula it did control oil a bit but at the end of the day you look like you have a sort of healthy glow due to the oil. Things I didn’t like about it was that it could get very thick and cakey especially in the summer. I like the natural feeling where you can’t feel the foundation on your face but this just wasn’t one of them.

Cost: $15 – 19CDN wherever available

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this for those oily people in the wintertime (who likes wearing a full face of makeup in the summer?) . Though for me I would only reserve this foundation for special events (full coverage) and wintertime.
