Review: Joe Fresh Highlighter Quad

16 Jan

Hello everyone! A Christmas present review today I hope that these are still available for purchase at Superstores/Loblaws across the country.

Description: A highlighter quad with four shades of highlighting shades that work with every skintone. The shades are a basic white pearl, a light pink with pearl, golden with pearl, and a bright coral with gold pearl.

Review: I really like this product despite the fact that it is really really hard to open the compact in the morning. It’s good since the product remains fresh on the inside but not good because I have to struggle with it every morning when I use it. The colors are not very pigmented but add a very nice shine to the skin (as a highlighter should) I foresee myself using the gold and bright coral shade more in the summer but technically all these shades can be used around anytime of the year. I especially found that the coral shade is warming to the complexion and works with cool and warm undertones. The creams are creamy and apply well to the skin but wear time isn’t that long only 4 hours then they aren’t seen as well as when you first apply it. They blend easily and just feel very weightless on the skin. Overall, I think that this quad of highlighting goodness is a great pick from the drugstore. Pick it up while you can because it’s apparently a limited edition product from Joe.

Cost: $15CDN @ Real Canadian Superstores/Loblaws

Would I recommend this product? I would it is a great highlighting quad, it’s a great multitasking product and works very well. I foresee myself using it quite a bit (though if I actually do or not we’ll have to see).

Review: L’oreal Colour Riche Balm

10 Jan

Hello everyone! Another NEW drugstore product review today I really wanted to find some of the new Maybelline products (especially the Dream Bouncy blushes) but it hasn’t been released in any drugstore in my city so I guess I’ll just have to stalk the drugstores for a little bit. ^-^ Anyways, onto the balm review!

Description: An tinted lip balm that gives 8 hours of hydration to the lips. The shades I picked up were 218 Rose Elixir and 318 Heavenly Berry.

Review: I have to put a disclaimer out there DO NOT EAT THIS LIP BALM!! Seriously don’t try to lick it or anything it tastes like nasty chemicals. Ugh, I felt so sorry for my tongue while I was testing these lip balms out. As for the claims they are semi-right the lip balms are hydrating but for about 1 hour then they fade and I have to reapply. Texture is very smooth and glides easily across the lips. Pigmentation isn’t the greatest I was sort of expecting these to be similar to Revlon Lip Butters but I was wrong (duh look at the name). Overall, for the price that you are paying for this I would just recommend buying a regular lip balm that works better than this.

Cost: $6-9CDN @ various drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? For the price that you are paying I don’t think that this is worth it. Save yourself some money don’t pick this up but pick up the Revlon Lip butter they are much better than these guys by the way the review is here.
