It was one of the hottest drugstore small brands and there was even a rumour at some point that Bobbi Brown had bought this company.
Sadly they went out of business years ago and Jane products disappeared from drugstore counters.
To think about it, The only thing I really liked from Jane was their Blushing Cheeks blushes.
They are simply very high-quality with great color range even compared to higher-end brands.
Jane Blushing Cheeks
Other than Blushing Cheeks, I always thought the eyeshadows were a little hard in texture to work with (although there were tons of people praising Jane Eye-zing s) and the base makeup colors were too pink.
(So I guess there is a lesson here. "Thou shall not make pink foundation." ;p)
I had at least 5 Blushing Cheeks in the past but I only kept two shades and swapped the rest away.
Then the other day, my friend Pauline mentioned on Twitter that she is craving some "tamed brownish pink blush" and that's when I thought about the famous Jane "Blushing Baby Doll", which I didn't have any longer.
I quickly searched online and found out that Jane cosmetics still has the website open and offers them at discounted price.
I added everything to my cart except the shades I own + the Blushing Glow which I know for sure is too dark and muddy for my complexion.
I also got 4 Aquashimmer eyeshadow quads that are supposedly mineral colors containing organic botanical ingredients.
(I personally suspect adding the mineral line might have caused the failure of company. ;-/ )
They are indeed very good quality (the shimmery colors are almost to die for) and consist of nice wearable mix of shimmery and matte colors.
I swatched the Blushing Cheek Colors to show you how beautiful these are.
They are all gorgeous but the matte colors are so worth having in my makeup wardrobe.
You don't find something like this from drugstore any more.
03 Blushing Orchid Shimmer - fresh cool pink with shimmer
(I already have this but bought one more for backup. love this one)
07 Blushing Plum - shimmery medium plum pink
(This one is my favorite to use on stage.)
04 Blushing Earth Sheer - shimmery peachy pink
01 Blushing Baby Doll - earthy brown pink
02 Blushing Blossom - gorgeous medium cool pink
06 Blushing Petal - muted English Rose
(Actually Pauline, this is the shade you want!)
05 Blushing Wine - pigmented medium wine
These blushes felt so fine and buttery smooth when I was swatching, I think I wept a little bit thinking about this fallen drugstore glory.
