Joe Fresh is one of my favourite brands for drugstore makeup because they are affordable and the quality is great for the price. Best of all, it's a CANADIAN brand! If you live in Canada, you'd be familiar with Joe Fresh as a clothing brand but the designer, Joe Mimran, decided to tackle beauty products (read the story here). The product line ranges from foundations (powder-, liquid-form) to bronzers and blushes (stick-, powder-form) to eyeshadows, liners, mascara to lipsticks (cream., matte), lip stains, and much more. They even carry manicure kits and brushes! But the amazing thing is everything is priced from $4-$8CAD with exception to the brushes and accessories. This was a little over a year ago and Joe Fresh has now expanded to carrying bath and body care products as well as nail polishes. I'm quite excited to see what he does next =D
Looks like I got a little carried away there. Back to the lip stain review. The lip stains come in 6 colours that are part of the Classic Collection (meaning that it's permanent) and last winter, they released some wintery colours. I was lucky enough to pick one up. They had: grapefruit (pinky coral), tangerine (light orange), red (self explanatory), lilac (bright fuchsia purple), berry (deep plumish red) and some others that I can't recall. I went to Loblaw today and there were still some of the winter colours left =] It costs $6CAD which is a reasonable price. Well, sadly, Joe Fresh is exclusive and you can only find it in Canada (Superstore and Loblaw). But thats ok. Get your Canadian buddies to get you some or just come here yourself. It's a good idea, eh?
(c'mon laugh with me)
