I was never really tempted by Joe Fresh before. The three things that drew me immediately were the nail polish, cheek tints, and eye shadows. The nail polish are quite small and at $4 each, I had no problem bypassing them. I was more tempted by the shadows, but somehow I found restraint and managed to put down the pack that had somehow made its way into my palm.
Then I discovered the cheek tints, and hello -- I was in love! Look at how adorable they are.

Sorry, used some before I took the photos!
"Peach" seemed more peachy under the store lights and turned out closer to neutral pink at home. "Cherry" is a vibrant sheer red which I absolutely adore. They are nice and compact, don't smell artificial, apply and blend nicely, and stay put all day long. For the Canadian gals who are looking for an affordable cream blush/cheek tint, I highly highly recommend these. I can't believe it took me so long to get on board with these.

I wore Peach all day yesterday and am wearing Cherry today. I'll be wearing Cherry again to work tomorrow. I'm so glad I found these before I became tempted by the new YSL cream blush. These are also serious contenders against the much more expensive and popular NARS The Multiple. I love mine in "Maui" but why wouldn't I pay $40 less for equally stunning visual results?
Have you tried Joe Fresh cosmetics before? What are your cheapy-find success stories?
