First Impressions: Jouer Cosmetics

first-impressions:-jouer-cosmetics

I’m not sure why it took me so long to purchase products from Jouer, especially after reading a decent amount about the brand on beauty blogs. I’ve read posts where bloggers called the brand “affordable luxury.” I’m not so sure I agree – affordable? Not really for makeup if you’re on a budget. Compared to the likes of Chanel, Le Metier de Beaute and Tom Ford? Sure, when you’re looking at Jouer’s $28 mattifying bronzer vs Tom Ford’s version for $95.

After having used these three products for about a week, I have to say that I am pleased. The Mattifying Bronzer in Sunswept is the perfect contour color (not muddy or orange) and you only need to pick up the tiniest amount with a brush – a little goes a long way! It also looks great when applied with a fluffy blush brush to the places where the sun would naturally hit (cheeks, temples, nose).

When choosing a highlight color I knew I wanted something a little more golden because I find that Benefit’s Watts Up highlighter looks a bit too white on my skin. Jouer’s highlighter in Tiare does the trick; it has a creamy consistency and the right amount of golden shimmer. I’ve loved applying it to my cheekbones and the inner corners of my eyes.

The third product I decided to try out is the lip gloss in Sorbet, a peachy pink with golden shimmer that is a new shade for summer. I was a bit surprised when I first applied the gloss, I was expecting the formula to be more sticky. To me it feels more like a liquid lipstick, which is fine. However, I wish that it was a bit more moisturizing, especially since it claims to be a moisturizing gloss. That aside, I really do love the color and I like that what you see in the tube is exactly what you get once applied to the lips.

Overall, I am impressed with Jouer and will definitely be picking up the much raved about Matte Moisture Tint and one of the Hydrating Lipsticks for fall!

Have you tried anything from Jouer?
