Review: Joe Fresh Five Minute Face Palette

5 Sep

Hello everyone! So I picked up this palette and was playing around with it this weekend and finally a review on it! Insert many many photos. (come to think of it, this is the first time I have reviewed anything with eyeshadow and included swatches…)

Swatches –

Review: I’m going to review it in parts but as a good note the eyeshadows and blushes are FULL-SIZED!! (hooray for more bang for your buck)
Eyeshadows consists of Pale Pink, Bronze, Expresso, and Midnight. Pale pink really is a sheer color and works as a nice sheen over the lids; bronze has a subtle sheen like pale pink kinda coppery without too much shimmer; expresso looks pretty matte brown shade but has some shimmers in it; midnight is all out blackened silver glitter discoball fun for those nights out. Overall the eyeshadows are pretty pigmented and are soft enough to work with. There was a lot of fallout with Midnight but I guess that was kinda expected.
Cheek products are Pink blush and Tan bronzer. Both have shimmers in them (but subtle so that they help create a glow on the skin), and they are both really soft powdery blushes. Downfall is that they are too soft this leads to a lot of fallout on the palette itself and they are like MAC sheertone blushes (just there for some shine and not much color).
Lippies are Mauve gloss and Plum cream lipstick. I dislike where these were placed they are smackdab in the middle and there are many opportunities for eyeshadow or blush fallout can fall into them. But the shades are really nice mauve is a bright light pink and has pink shimmers in it (kinda reminds me of Stila’s Pinkle Twinkle lipglaze). Plum is a semi-dark berry color and is extremely creamy and easy to apply on the lips. The lipgloss wasn’t as sticky and stuck on pretty well throughout the day. Both the lipstick and lipgloss were very pigmented and were extremely moisterizing (A+ for moisterizing factor!).
A really well put together palette.  

Cost: $20.00CDN at your local Loblaws/Superstore

Would I recommend this palette? I would recommend this palette as a great starter for those starting out with makeup. This palette would be great for those who only have a limited amount of time in the morning (as it was intended for) or to transition a day look into a sultry night look. Those who have a lot of makeup you can skip out on this palette it’s nothing to awe-inspiring (and you probably have most of the shades  already).

Long day = treat!

28 Jan

Yes… today was a long day… though not compared to yesterday. Since it was a pretty long day and I was pretty exhausted by the time classes ended at 2 I booked it home and made a new record! Bus ride home usually takes 1 hour and a half but today I only took 45 mins!! The dashing home must have been a good plan. ^_^

To commemorate how the cold is in Canada I decided to take this photo:

The cold here is not like any other cold… it’s so ninja! You think it’s warm and everything but then all of a sudden it’s cold!! Ninja! Well, it sinks deep into the bones making it seem really cold.

But since tomorrow I have an exam I decided that I would study lots today and I finished studying…. so I’m going to treat my skin to something really funky…

It’s my last Montange Jeunesse face mask… I love these things! I love the fact that the company doesn’t test on animals and that the product is made of natural ingredients (vegan!). The smells are great and everything!! It’s pretty cheap on the wallet too only $2CDN for one… I don’t know if they sell these in the US or not… but the company is from the UK so that’s pretty exciting  too! I’m going to need to go and buy more! This one is the Strawberry Souffle and it says that it’s a moisterizing and purifying mask. Perfect for winter time. What a nice way to treat myself.

That reminds me I have to go and get some more storage spaces for my area… it’s becoming a mess once again…

Or at least I feel that it is a mess… see how many things that you can spot on there! And yes there is a Christmas tree to the right-hand side. To me it’s Christmas everyday!! But I will eventually put it away just when is the question. ^_^

Anyways, going to get back to some more studying whoopeee!
