Excellent shadows... Highly recommend! Just bought ICE, SUGAR & ROSE GOLD. SUGAR is very similar to my fave discontinued MAC HUSH, a nice iridescent shimmery light peachy pink. ICE is a great white highlighter, a bit chalky but you can blend that out. ROSE GOLD is a nice golden taupe, similar to golden freckles. I found that they go on very smoothly and blend well. Def buy again. Will try more colours too!

This review is for the Faded Violet powder eye shadow.
I wanted a light pastel shade for the spring and this colour caught my eye.
Like the name implies, it's a sheer lilac tone.
The pigment is rather sheer and the texture is a bit on the chalky side so I took off two lippies for that.
For my skin tone, I would need to use a base colour to enhance the Faded Violet shadow to make it noticeable.
It would look lovely on pale, cool skin tones.
If you're warm toned, use caution as it may look like you've been crying.
I don't like spending a lot of money on the fun or trendy colours so this fits the bill economically.
I plan to wear it for a fun, spring weather look.

I am pretty impressed with these. Good color pay off, stay on well, amazing price and with a good quality brush go on smooth just the same as higher end eyeshadows. I saw them on sale for $2 and bought 3. Two browns and a lavender. I have boat loads of eye-shadow but i guess i didnt realize i amazed a huge collection of es all with shimmers?! All the variances in tone and shine and intensity from MAC to UD to Mabelline to Dior.... and now, sigh, all i want is a few everyday basic matte eyeshadows; these were great find and serve their purpose- i use them daily.

I'm actually quite impressed with these shadows. I have tried a cream eyeshadow as well which I did not like but the pigmentation and color selection of these is very good. They also have a good range of matte to satin to shimmers. I'll be trying more from this line as it's so affordable and easily available.

I'm so glad I tried this!! I picked up "cactus" on a whim - it's a khaki green with shimmer, and looks amazing with my green eyes - usually greens compete with my eyes, but this one compliments them. It's also neutral enough to wear everyday. I blended it out with shroom, but will try patina next - think this will be beautiful! Mac comparable for sure. The cactus made me go buy 3 more the next day (3 for $10!) and I got pebble (grey shimmery taupe with plum undertones), gold rush (gorgeous golden shimmer with apricot undertones) and bronze (neutral mid-tone shimmery brown). I haven't tried the last three on my eyes, but swatched on the back of my hand they also look Mac comparable - the gold is so stunning.

Already bought a cream blush from Joe Fresh which I loved, so I thought I'd try their eyeshadows. I got three for $10, and got them in "Sugar," "Pale Pink" and "Twinkle."
I can now see why they're three for $10 (or $4 each.) All three shades were extremely powdery and chalky...when I went to pick up the product with my brush, it kicked up a ton of powdery dust and little powdery pieces balled up in the pan. As well, each shade was very poor in the pigmentation department -all three were extremely sheer and hard to build up any colour. I really had to pack it on with a stiff brush to achieve any sort of pigmentation.
The packaging is sturdy, and clear so you can see what's inside. That's pretty much the only redeeming quality about these eyeshadows, in my opinion. Definitely will not be repurchasing and would not recommend, even though they're cheap. If you're going to buy drugstore/grocery store eyeshadow, save your money and get the Wet n' Wild trios -excellent pigmentation, smooth, dense, buttery textures.

Colours purchased: Bisque, Pebble, Chocolate
-great quality for such an affordable price
-great colour selection and smooth, soft textures
-blend easily and contains a lot of product (more than double of MAC eyeshadows)
Bisque: light golden pale yellow >similar looking to MAC "ricepaper" Has a subtle shimmer and is a great everyday colour!
Pebble: shimmery taupe colour with gray as the colour base. Not bad as a colour but a little sheer, definitely buildable
Chocolat: shimmery medium cool-toned brown. Great neutral shade and good pigmentation (soft colour payoff)

These eye shadows sell for $4 Canadian and are one of the biggest bargains out there. I've got 2 of them and plan to get more. The first one I ] got was in a colour called Pebble which is a light, shimmering taupe sort of shade. It was actually a bit of a let-down as it's not all that great in terms of pigmentation and I think this is a bit of problem with some of the lighter shades. But I recently got another one in the colour "Bronze" and WOW! It's not the reddish bronze colour that the name might suggest - it's far more neutral than that. Applied, it's not unlike my favourites - MAC's Satin Taupe or Prepped for Glamour (it's a bit more like the latter) - it's a great shadow with excellent pigmentation. It applies smoothly and looks wonderful all on its own, applied as a wash on the lid and then built up a bit with a heavier application to define the crease. I'm off back to the grocery store soon to get a few more of these amazing shadows. The case seems a bit rigid...like it could easily break at the hinge - but that is a minor problem in a product that is otherwise so good.

I have this in Bark (2011 spring collection) and I love it! It is a matte deep olive and I actually use it to fill my eyebrows rather than as an eyeshadow. Iím an Asian and have very dark olive hair. I tried grey or brown powder before but both gave me very unnatural, fake looking brows. You know how difficult to find a deep olive eyebrow powder or even a matte eyeshadow? So when I saw this in Superstore I grabbed two from the rack without thinking, and it did not disappoint me. Its staying powder is great. My brows look so good now. Thanks Joe Fresh!

I'd like to thank Joseph Mimran and Joe Fresh for saving me from my never ending search for a basic pink, non-sparkly drugstore eyeshadow. You'd think some makeup companies would realize that once you hit a certain age, the last thing you want is glitter in your eye shadow. And do you have any idea how hard is it find a neutral pink without some form of frost in it that doesn't cost you $20 for a sliver of 1.5g of shadow?
I originally wasn't going to buy the Pale Pink in this line because in the packaging it looks really dull and much darker than it appears on your skin. What a divine basic pink for everyday use!! I cannot believe you can pick the eyeshadows up at 3 for $10. I use this in conjunction with the basic neutral cream color Silk as a highlighter. With some eyeliner and mascara, it is the perfect neutral eye. Thank you Joe Fresh!

I bought Pagoda (grey sparkly), Peacock? (teal) and a silver shadow. I love peacock for adding some oomph as I don't normally wear coloured shadows (trying to play around more than just my Givenchy tempting chocolates). It went on well and blended well with the silver shade I used for hilighting. I used my mac angled brush to wet it for use as an eyeliner and it worked amazing. By the end of the night it was creasing and wiped off some but I do have greasy eyes and will use a primer next time to make the lids stick.
Pagoda though was disappointing. It was really sheer and just a bit sparkly, not the smokey mid-gray I was hoping for. It's fine for a subtle look, but I would like it more as just a solid matte gray or with just a bit of shimmer as opposed to sheer. I'll still use it, but just not what I was expecting.
My only complaint about these products is the packaging. I find them a pain in the butt to open.

I got these on sale. With a coupon they were 4 cents each, HA. Talk about dirt cheap.
I have Berry (red), Glo (unsaturated yellow), Forest (green), Petrol (unsaturated slate blue),Charcoal (dark grey, sparkles), Chocolate (med-dark brown, sparkles), and pale pink (which looked really neutral to me).
The pigmentation is good, except for Berry which i find to be kind of washed out. Blending is okay, but I find it looks chalky if you don't blend it right. Other reviewers are right, it's best if you use a primer. They readily come off with remover or facial wash. If I could I'd give it 3.5 stars.
These colours are super fun for experimentation, cause honestly I wouldn't wear red or yellow too often. I plan to get most of the shades as they go on sale.

These shadow onl work well with a primer so keep that in mind when you purchase them. Pigmentation is fairley descent from a drugstore brand. I picked up the Eye Shadow Trio in Forest (forest green, smoke black and ice blue). The forest green and smoke black are both matte and had the longest stay power, the ice blue is pure frost and would vanish after a short wile without a base.

I paid $4 for these. After seeing all the rave reviews, I bought one just to try it out but I liked them so much, I ended up going back to buy another 5. These are so cheap and comparable to the quality of high end shadows. Before I liked the L'oreal eyeshadows for drugstore products but these are far superior. They are very pigmented and not chalky at all. They are easy to blend and easy to pick up with a brush, and they have fairly good staying power with an eyeshadow primer. They don't have a lot of fall out either.
My favorite shade is Espresso which is a mocha brown. This is the perfect shade for filling in brunette eyebrows!! I find myself reaching for this more than my Chanel eyebrow powder, as this shade is really natural and not too dark. It blends like a dream which is important because it is easier to fix eyeshadow mistakes than it is to fix a badly drawn eyebrow.
Joe Fresh has a lot of unique colors that I have not seen in other drugstore brands such as Pebble which is a sparkly greyish-brown.
Pale Pink, a light pink with shimmer, is perfect for highlighting and Black is an uber-dark black that is perfect for a smokey eye.
Although I still love Urban Decay eyeshadows the best, these come a close second because of their value, quality, and price. Definitely recommend!!!

Love this product! The packaging is great. So cute and you know exactly what is in it. The pigmentation is also great. It goes on smooth and is easy to blend. I also love the wide variety of crazy colours. Lots of mattes.
One thing to note is that they break easily and are very difficult to depot. I have just given up trying.
The one thing I do wish they had more shimmers.

I'm quite impressed with these shadows. They are only $4! I have the Pebble and Bronze shades. Pebble is a silvery-taupe, and Bronze is a brown with shimmer. The texture is smooth and the colour payoff is pretty awesome. They come in a clear case with a flip cap.

I have two of these eyeshadows: espresso (charcoal w/ sparkles) & chocolate (a frosted dark brown)
I use them as eye shadows, to fill in my brows, to set my eye liner. In conclusion, they are very versitile. For my eyes, I do have to use a base but I do that with any eye shadow I use.
The pigmentation is amazing and even better than the smashbox ones I have. They have huge as well approximately 3gms of product vs the 1.7gm from smashbox.
At $4, its an amazing deal and for those who are interested, they have $6 ones available that are the same size but provide three complimentary colors....thats the best bang for the buck!

i have this in ESPRESSO and PEBBLES.
I love espresso alot!!! this color is so versatile that i use it in my outer v and crease, i use it for my eye brows, i use it to set my eyeliner on upper lid, and i use it to line my lower lash line. Pigmentation is really good. the price is awesome!!! Too bad they dont have alot of color selections.

LOVE THEM! $4 each and totally mac comparable. great pigmentation especially when you use a primer. they stay on for a long time, are smooth and there's a huge range of colours. i picked up silk which is a nice highlight color, baked clay which is a terracotta brown, and plum which is a rich deep purple. totally going back for more!
