Joe Fresh (the clothing/accessories/makeup line from Superstore) has recently released a line of liquid lipsticks for their spring/summer collection. Here’s to you Joe Fresh, you totally nailed it!
I picked up two shades Grapefruit and Baie Savauge…obviously I want to talk about Baie Savauge. This colour! Please appreciate it for a few minutes…
I have been searching high and low for “Radiant Orchid” products, i.e. Pantone Colour of the Year for 2014. On Sephora’s website they have pages of suggestions. However, what about us poor people who don’t want to spend $32 on a lipstick that will no longer be “the colour of the year” come 2015? Enter Joe Fresh liquid lipstick in Baie Savauge. The punchier, more vibrant, budget friendly, Radiant Orchid lipstick.
Apart from the amazing colour, this product has an excellent formulation. It goes on creamy and smooth, sets to a semi-matte finish, and wears beautifully for 5+ hours. What more can you ask for in an $8 drugstore lipstick?
As you can see from the swatch, this stuff has amaze-tastic pigmentation.
You only need the tiniest amount to give yourself covetable colour. For those that don’t want a full on power pout, apply and blot! You will be left with the most beautiful orchid stained lips. This liquid lipstick also makes a beautiful cheek stain. But be careful when you apply! Through my rigorous experimentation I have decided the best way to apply this product as a cheek stain is to dot some on the back of your hand and then pick up a tiny amount on a small duo fibre brush like this one. Blot the brush once or twice to remove excess product and then blend whats left onto the apples of your cheeks. Then admire your fresh flush in the mirror. As a cheek stain this product looks very similar to Benefits Lolitint. You are welcome!
As a bonus, the blue undertones of this colour will also create a whitening effect on your teeth! It just keeps getting better! and I just can’t get enough!
