Joe Fresh New For Spring 2017

By Sunday, April 02, 2017 , , , , , , ,

Joe Fresh has just launched a bunch of new products for spring. I was lucky enough to get a few items to try out and am going to show you some swatches and reviews. Here we go.

Universal Brow Crayon ($12)
This is a fat eyebrow pencil that comes in just one universal shade. It is waxy so it helps set your brows exactly how you like them while colouring them in nicely. I was hesitant that the universal shade would look great on me with my darker hair, but it looks fantastic. Since it is a twist up, you don't have to worry about sharpening it. While it works well on me I am not sold on it working for someone with darker hair or looking for a darker brow look. I really do wish it came in a few shades.

8 HR Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner ($8)
Everyone loves a nice gel kohl liner, right? I know I do. These new 8 hour liners are smudgable but last 8 hours. They also come in an incredibly Navy and Burgundy.

Eyeshadows ($6 each or 2/$10)
Joe Fresh's shadows have always been a favourite of mine, I have purchased so many over the years I lost count. I even once did a post on how to depot them (it isn't easy, it involved a soldering iron, and I haven't tried it since 2011).

This spring there are some amazing new neutral and metallic shades. The mattes blend well and are richly pigmented while the metallic are creamy and just plain fantastic. Cinnamon and Cocao are matte while Pretty Penny, Champagne and Meteor are metallic in finish.

These shadows go on super smooth and blend like a dream. I have applied them with a fully crease brush for a more sheer wash of colour or packed it on with a flat brush for more opacity. Either way it always works out great and they look amazing. There also isn't much fallout or fly away product no matter what type of brush you use.

Highlighter Stick ($10)
This illuminating stick stick in Pink Pearl glides on to the skin to create a beautiful soft pink glow. It transforms from a cream to a powder after blending and look fanatic on the skin. I love how this one glows, such a pretty shade. It also goes on the skin super easy and blends out while keeping the look. I personally think you can skip your powder highlighter when you use this baby.

Tinted Lip Balms ($12)
Nothing beats a tinted lip balm, except a tinted lip balm that has a great flavour to it. Loaded with Grape Seed, Maracuja, Sunflower, Rosehip and Avocado oils as well as Shea Butter these lip balms are loaded up with lip nourishing goodness. With 10 flavours with slight tints to them there is probably one that you will like. I've been trying out Lychee, which I am in love with (I really love lychees).  I find the formula really hydrating and smooth, it isn't thin in constancy so you know it is going to hang out a while on the lips. It also packs quite the colour punch for a tinted lip balm, sometimes you get weak shades that don't show on the lip, but these definitely do.
Today's look features Cinnamon eyeshadow all over the lid and Meteorite eyeshadow  on the outer half to create a brown and grey look as well as the blue liner. I also used the highlighter on my cheeks and under by brow bone, brow pencil and lip balm. 

The only other items I used were Joe Fresh's Hydra Lash Mascara and a classic bush of theirs from my collection, Buff (which I am sure no longer exists but I still love).
Overall, I like all Joe Fresh's new items, a lot. If I had to have must tries it would be, the new shadows, highlighter stick and the tinted lip balm.

Have you tired any of these new items from Joe Fresh? What would you like to try out?
