Christmas Gift Idea #4: Joe Fresh Eye Shadow Palette Holiday 2011

This is a review of the new Holiday 2011 eyeshadow palette by Joe Fresh. It is a Canadian brand which can be found at many large grocery stores. I've done a review of their single eyeshadows which you can read by clicking here

This palette costs $12 and it comes with 22 eyeshadows. It also comes with 4 double-ended sponge-tip applicators.

$12 at The Real Canadian Superstore

This is the tag that it comes with. I think this palette would make a great gift/stocking stuffer!

This is what it looks like coming out of the outer packaging.
 The photo below shows each of the eyeshadows. They all have names and some of them are from their permanent line. The names are in both English and French. I'll distinguish between the English and French names by using a '/' in between. Some have the same name in both English and French.

Top row colours (left to right): Ice/Glace, Silk/Soie, Bisque, Gold Rush/Ruée Vers L'Or, Honeybell/Tangelo, Cherry Blossom/Fleur de Cerisier
Second Row: Bronze, Twig/Brindille, Espresso, Portobello, Bark/Écorce
Third Row: Pale Pink/Rose Pâle, Dirty Rose/Rose Poudreux, Rosewood/Bois de Rose, Iris, Petrol/Essence, Pagoda/Pagode
Last Row: Silver/Argent, Charcoal/Charbon de Bois, Smoke/Charbonneux, Sailor/Matelot, Black/Noir

Colours (left to right): Silver/Argent, Charcoal/Charbon de Bois, Smoke/Charbonneux, Sailor/Matelot, Black/Noir

The quality of these eyeshadows is above average. Though some of the colours from their permanent line appear in this palette, the quality between the palette and the single eyeshadows do not compare. This is a common occurrence with palettes.

The single eyeshadows are soft, while these are a bit chalky. The pigmentation is about the same, but they apply a lot differently.

I think it's cool that they released a palette because the Joe Fresh line is very good quality, but I wish the quality of this palette were the same as the single eyeshadows.

The quality is still pretty good though and I've been using this palette for the past few days :)
