Jouer Liquid Shimmer Eyeliners

 

Hydrating Lipstick in Dusty

 

Now here’s a line that I haven’t talked about in awhile, but use the products on a regular basis, Jouer Cosmetics.  I discovered Jouer a few years back while in NYC at Henri Bendel and have loved every piece I own.   Their Luminizing Moisture Tint is hands down the best I’ve ever used.  The coverage is sheer and luminizing, but not so sheer that you wonder if you have anything on your face.  I personally think it’s much better than the one by Laura Mercier that gets all the recognition.

The new Fall additions to the Jouer line are short, simple and sweet.   There are three new mini sized Liquid Shimmer Eyeliners (shown top)

  • Fox – a navy charcoal
  • Sable – a sheer aubergine
  • Mink – a rich taupe
The mascara is available in Noir – a rich black and Brun – a black brown.   It is clump-resistant, conditions and volumizes, is smudge-proof and contains vitamins E & C.   And the new lipstick shade in their Hydrating Lipstick lineup is Dusty, a sheer true nude.   It’s a creamy formula with Brazilian Cupuacu Butter for extra moisturizing benefits.
Jouer sent me the lipstick and the Sable liquid liner to try.   The sable shade I thought would be too light to give definition, but with two layers (shown above) it increases the intensity slightly, but enough to give strong definition.  Sable is a warm reddish brown with a nice shimmer – as you can see from the image above, the shimmer does not come across as sparkly, so it’s a very wearable shade.
The other morning I created a look using Jouer products.   First I used the Moisture Tint in Golden, then I used the Signature Collection in Sunday Brunch.  The cheek color is Bloom Blush – a soft apricot shade and then highlighted the cheekbone with Tiare highlighter.  The all over eye shadow shade is Caramel Powder Eyeshadow – a soft shimmering gold and then in the crease I used Espresso (not part of the Sunday Brunch collection) then lined my eye with the Sable Liquid Shimmer Eyeliner.   I topped my lips with the Dusty lipstick shade, sans any liner or gloss.   My lips are highly pigmented pink and the Dusty shade lets some of that pinkness show through.  It’s a soft, polished makeup look that is wearable for every day.
Here is a closeup of the eye showing the simple application of the two shades and the super-fine line of the Liquid Shimmer Eyeliner.  You can see the image at the very top how finely pointed the applicator brush is.  It works excellent for really getting at the lashline, and as shown in the image (full face) above you can see the definition it gave my eyes.
This just reminds me that I need to let you in on Jouer more often, because I am always pleased with their products.
Sable liner and Dusty lipstick sent for consideration of review.
