This months Cruelty Free Brand Focus is Joko Makeup. If you haven’t heard of Joko, it is a relatively new brand to the Irish market. Joko Makeup is a mineral product range that is now available online and in selected pharmacies in Ireland. Joko contains no nasty or harmful ingredients, so it’s kind to your skin. If you follow me on my snapchat shapesndshadows , you’ll know I absolutely love mineral makeup lately. Joko is also 100% cruelty free, so it is not tested on animals.
I have really started taking a huge interest in more cruelty free brands lately and I definitely think they deserve more recognition. Joko is 1 of the top 5 brands in Poland, from where it originates. Polish makeup is hitting Irish shores with a storm lately , with its amazing quality products and affordability.
I was very kindly sent a PR pack of Joko makeup a couple of months ago, when they first launched in Ireland and again if you follow me on snapchat you constantly see me reaching for these products time and time again.
Today I am going to be talking all about my favourites from Joko.
Joko Glow Primer €9.99
A 2 in 1 product in one tube, acting as a primer to help your foundation adhere to the skin and a highlighter to give you that extra glow. It’s lightweight and moisturising on the skin. I wear it on it’s own on days you don’t want to wear any makeup and it gives the nicest glow to the skin. I also use it before or after my foundation , depending on the look I’m going for. This is by far the most pigmented liquid highlighter I have ever used. It’s amazing and a must have for me. I would recommend this for all skin types.
Joko Baked Mineral Powder 05 €11.99
I absolutely love buying bronzers as they can be used for a number of different things. First and foremost to bronze up the skin , making that transition from your foundation to contour. Secondly as an eyeshadow or transition colour. Thirdly to blend out eyeshadows, if there is any harsh lines. The baked minerals powder have a slight shimmer to them, which is lovely and can be used again in other places like the colour bone temple etc to give a lovely glow.
If your on the edge about heavy contour or contour in general , the is the one for you it’s not to light nor to dark , but gives a bronzed look in a natural way. These baked mineral powders are lightweight and suitable for all skintypes.
Baked Blush €10.99
With 6 blushes available in the range, I was kindly sent number 11 Atomic. Again with the blushes you can use these as blushes and eyeshadows. They are highly pigmented and so easy to work with. This shade Atomic is a beautiful coral shade and so nice on the eye and cheeks.
Cashmere Finish Matt & Cover Foundation €18.99
When it comes to foundation I tell ya I’m very very fussy. Why spend money on something you’ll leave sitting there. I absolutely love the Estee Lauder double wear foundation due to its longevity. It literally doesn’t budge from the skin, but can feel heavy on. I had never really found a dupe for it , just something that came close , until I tried the Joko Cashmere Finish Matt & Cover Foundation.
This foundation will give you a complete matte finish , without feeling cakey or heavy. It blends like a dream and glides onto the skin. It’s also available in 5 shades.
I have the foundation on in the picture below.
Classic Lipsticks 41 Sweet Blush €9.99
Lipsticks are hands down my all time favourite beauty product, there is such wide variety of colours available on the market with all different finishes. Joko have 12 shades in the classic lipstick range.
The lipsticks are so pigmented and super soft on the lips. They contain shea butter & Vitamin E which will nourish and give moisture to the lips.
Lip Gloss Shine your Lips 013 Gold €9.99
This shade of lip gloss is unreal. It’s a gold undertone gloss packed full of vitamins to give the lips a lovely glossy shine. Anytime I use this on my snapchat shapesndshadows , I get a tone of messages asking where it’s from. Its lovely on its own or on top of a nude lipstick. Another must have for me .
I really enjoyed writing this post and I hope you will like it too.
I think more recognition needs to be giving to cruelty free brand and Joko is definitely a must have for me .
Until next time,
