JORDWATCH Review


I was contacted by JORD a while ago, I got an email asking me to do a review of Jord Watches. I wasn't sure if I would have the time or even if I wanted to do it. I haven't posted regularly on my blog for some time. An other thing was that I have not worn a watch for years. I didn't reply. However an idea was forming in my head and I could not stop thinking about the Jord Watches. To my surprise I recieved an other email from Jord. By now the idea that was forming in my head had set root. I could not refuse.



My Fieldcrest Zebrawood and Maple #JordWatch is sturdy, eventhoug it feels light to the touch. I would not submerge it into water though. I'm thinking water would dry out the wood and make it brittle.  The timepiece is smooth to the touch and feels warm when you hold or wear it - unlike a metal watch.

This Wood Watch does draw attention to it. Never has any piece of clothing or accessories that I've worn gotten more attention than this wood watch. People want to touch it and hold it and even try it on. And the reactions are much like my own described in this post. "Wow how light it is. If feels really smooth. Good looking timepiece." And I usually get the question: "Where did you get it? Where can I buy one?"

When I was unboxing the timepiece I noticed a few nice details. First off it came packaged in a beautiful wood box (sucker for boxes). Great for storing your wood watch when not wearing it. There was a cleaning cloth included. Great when you are taking photos of the watch and don't want fingerprints showing on the glass. The back of the watch is not metal but in fact is covered with wood. That was a nice surprice. The back is ingraved with the Jord Logo, where the timepiece is born and manufactured and what it is made of. The backpiece is attached with 4 screwes. On the wristband next to the clasp the word JORD is ingraved. The clasp opens up really wide so it's really easy to put on the watch. The Crown is also ingraved with the Jord Logo.

Unfortunately I had a problem with the clasp of the watch. It came undone by the slightest touch. I took a closer look at the clasp and realised that I did not even have to push the clasp to open it. I could just pull the wristband. Clearly a faulty clasp. Woodwatches said that they will replace the watch.

Having a wood watch brings up a few questions.

What kind of wood is used? Is it from sustainable sources?
Can I be/become allergic to my wood watch?
How do I clean and keep my wood watch clean?
Are JORD watches water resistant?

Sigma Beauty Product Review




I have a quick review for you. I got 3 Eyeshadows and
4 brushes from the Performance Eyes Kit from Sigma Beauty.

I should have done this review like two summers ago. But I have been
putting it off as I don't really have much nice things to say about the products
I got. But then I thought that that is no reason not to do a review, but a great
 reason to actually let you guys know what I think about these products.




Individual Eyeshadow $11

Escape
Act
Resist (Now on sale for $7.70)


First off the Eyeshadows feels really silky and smooth. Seems to be pigmented
and rich in color. They look good in the swatches on my hand. However the more
I used them the less I was impressed by them. They are a bit powdery and when
applying there is "fly away" and fall out. The colors are not that unique, I found a few
"dupes" or at least very similar colors in my stash that I like better. When you blend
them the color fades away and you need to apply more to have somekind of color left.

What is good about these is that thay are Paraben Free

All in all
I will not be buying any of these eyeshadows
even though I have hit the pan on the lightest color.




Makeup Brushes $14 - $16
SigmaTech™ synthetic fibers

Eyeliner - E11
Smudge - E21
Shader - Crease - E47
Blending E36

These brushes are for presicion work. I don't use them in my everyday makeup.
I do try to find use for them but my makeup is usually very simple and I don't use many
brushes at all. The one brush I use most out of these is probably Smudge - E21. 

I think these brushes are better suited for a
Makeup Artist or someone who does Makeup Tutorials.
