Joe Fresh Beauty blush + lipstick

So I finally caved and bought some stuff from the Joe Fresh Beauty line in Canada. I just couldn't stop thinking about how creamy the lipsticks swatched so I had to go back for them :P

I got the powder blush in Pink, and cream lipstick in Strawberry. I also did get another lipstick in Coral later but don't have pictures of that yet.

Packaging as I mentioned earlier is basic, clear plastic (lucite?).

The lipstick has a unnecessarily thick base of plastic which I find annoying as it makes it chunkier than it needs to be.

Swatches on skin:

The blush has a bit of shimmer in it but nothing over the top. The blush swatch looks a bit cooler than it really is. See in the FOTD below, it looks a lot warmer (though that could also be the redness in my cheeks showing through.

The lipstick is super creamy, I love the texture! The colour is extremely pigmented too, the only downside being that this colour ended up being a bit bolder than I would like in real life. I'll just have to save this for pairing with neutral eyes intead.

So are these worth the money? If you don't mind the somewhat chunky packaging of the lipstick then yes for $6 it is :D

I've never heard of this makeup line before. The colors are so pretty!

For bold lipstick shades I usually pair it with a lighter color to tone it down.

I like your lashes!

Thanks for the review!

I was wondering about the makeup line, because Joe Fresh is like a Loblaws brand, but now that I've read your review, I'm REALLY tempted to buy some lipsticks!

I would probably use the lipstick for blush...if I had clear skin which allowed me to use cream blushes more! lol
The colours look gorgeous~
I do want to go and pick up something, but most of the ones are somewhat out of my way...hopefully I can snag one soon.
Thanks for sharing your views :)
ps Thanks Blu3 for your comment. Does make me feel better:)

Ooh! Thanks so much for the review :) You're totally killing my no-buy. A cheap lipstick that's creamy, gorgeous, AND pigmented? Count me in!
