JK Jemma Kidd air kiss shine lipgloss

I came across Jemma Kidd (JK) displays in my local Target. I believe they are a UK brand.

The nice thing about JK is you can test out their testers at the display, but the bad thing is their pricing seems to be a little bit too much for a Target store. 

Single eyeshadows, at $16 a pop:

They have a series of interesting metallic "i-conic" pencil eyeliners with built-in sharpener in their caps:

Swatches of i-conic pencil liners:

They are quite creamy and extremely pigmented... however I am not really into metallic liners as I usually go with a standard black liner for a more natural look. Maybe time for a change?

Using boots makeup remover (from the next display) to wipe off the the swatches:

Some colors still remain, so with a second wipe the colors got of completely.

I am more interested in their lip glosses (opps the tester for color 07 Poser fell behind the wall of testers!):

I picked up their shine lip glosses after swatching them at the back of my hand in store. 

The 2 lippies that I picked up this time cost a whopping $16 each.

The 2 colors I get is 05 Hot Spot which is cute milky pink and 07 poser which is a deeper fuschia pink:

Swatches at the back of my hand:

At first I thought 07 Poser is more on the rosy warm side than actual hot pink fuschia. But I was misleaded by the swatches in the store:

It's highly pigmented and glossy. I am not too sure about this color on me as I rarely use that red of a lip color. But I must say their lip gloss is quite pigmented, moisturizing, long lasting, non-sticky and no weird fragrance that will affect my taste palette... 

It's highly similar to the Canmake Melty Nude Glow that I own, except JK's formula is not as thick as Canamke's. I give full points for the texture and non stickiness of this lip gloss!

Moving on to 05 Hot Spot:

I love this color more than 07 Poser. I love how nice and soft this color is on my lips. It will go well with my semi-nude make up look that I am into these days!

I may pick up their nude beige colors (refer to the counter colors in the above pictures) only if JK has a sale in Target. I will be stalking them all the time for sure!

And for my FOTD look using JK's lip gloss in 05 Hot Spot:

Nice review! The JK pricing is a bit expensive, have you checked out their blushers?

I would think that 07 poser is no good on you.

Yes indeed, I was misleaded by 07 poser... so I returned it in the end, because this hot pink is too shocking on me...

and guess what, a MAC lip gloss only cost $13 in outlets... while JK cost a whopping $18 in Target.... not too affordable!
