Name: Joe Fresh Highlighter Powder in Champagne
Shade: 2 Shades
Available at Shoppers Drug Mart and Real Canadian Superstores
I did a quick impressions on the Joe Fresh brand earlier this year when it first released at Shoppers. Now, I've had a bit more time to play with this highlighter for a full review.
Packaging: The highlighter is in a sturdy plastic packaging with "Joe Fresh" printed across the front. The packaging is pretty simple but the casing closes with a very satisfying click. When the highlighter was new, there was kind of a "JF" embossing in the powder. (Can you still see it?) The photos right now are after a bit of wear.
Color: This shade looks like a classic "champagne" neutral shade in the pan. When swatched, I feel like it gives more of an icy glow as compared to some highlighters with a golden glow. I recently just got super tanned from vacation so it looks a bit harsh against my skin tone. This would be best for those that are lighter skinned or prefer a cool toned glow.
Formula: The powder is very smooth to the touch but is lacking the creaminess of other cheek products that I enjoy. Since I have really dry skin, I feel like this powder sits on my cheeks as it is not that creamy in texture. Also, I find unless I wear a more liquidy foundation underneath, the products do not "stick" to my skin and therefore the shimmer either travels or wears off easily.
Overall, I wouldn't say this is my favorite highlighter. I think products with a golden glow are more flattering on my complexion. Additionally, since the product is drier in texture, it does not lasts for very long on my dry skin. I do like that the product is very buildable. So if you want a more wearable highlighter, this could be good if you had oiler skin.
Do you go for a subtle highlight or in your face glow?
