Joe Fresh lipgloss today! At $8, I wasn't sure it would live up to some of my other faves like Mac Lipglass or Clinique Glosswear (both of which are around $20), but you know what? It did!
It's got a great texture, solid staying power, and comes in great colours to flatter any skin tone. Plus it is virtually scentless, and I am pretty finicky about ensuring that my makeup doesn't smell like a perfumery. One of my biggest pet peeves is opening a new brand of lipgloss only to find that it smells like cotton candy or english roses. That's a pretty strong smell when you're wearing it about 1 cm from your nose.
The fact that I can grab some while I'm picking up bread and cheese at all the grocery stores that carry the Joe Fresh line also makes it far more convenient than heading to a mall and fighting for a parking space. I really miss living on Queens Quay in Toronto where I could browse through their huge boutique attached to the Loblaws at the bottom of Jarvis. Damn, that's a great spot. Remember when it was Caban? Ahh...the good old days. I still can't believe Caban is gone...
Anyhoo - worth a try if you love lipgloss and hate spending too much on it!
