Joe Fresh Cream Blushes

While holiday shopping this year I found myself checking out the Joe Fresh cosmetic section at my local Superstore! I have a love affair with this company for nice products at a very inexpensive price! I should do a shadow collection someday for you all to see... but that is not the focus for todays post!!

My most recent shopping trip created an interest in the Joe Fresh cream blushes... so I picked up 2! I decided on Apricot and Melon as I didn't have similar shades in my cream blush collection!

My thoughts on the product formulation itself... well for the price its a pretty good product! The product is very creamy... which translates into a little hard to apply with your fingers... it almost smears instead of blend. Especially when applied over a foundation. Applied with a brush however it goes on beautifully... even over a powder product!

Now to the colours themselves. Apricot is an almost neutral peachy shade which looks like a natural flush to the cheek when blended out! I have used both an apricot and pink powder blush over the top which created two very different yet very pretty results!!

Now to the Melon... which shocked me really! I wish I had gotten a picture before I used this blush because when I opened the package the product was very orange. Upon using the blush it turned almost a pink colour! The colour is very nice on the skin... but not what I had originally thought I was getting. Blended out you can still see the orange tint in the product but swatched it is very pink!

In this pic you can see the orange colour still remaining on the outer edge of the blush.

Overall I think the blushes are worth the $8 they cost! I can't attest to the colour quality of the other colours but I like the ones I have.. even if Melon isn't what I thought it was going to be!
