Jouer Cosmetics Brand & Products Review (Lip Creme Matte Liquid Lipsticks, Luminizing Moisture
For as much as I love my normal indie brands, sometimes exploring into different realms is but a positive, and somewhat negative thing! How? Well, obviously the cons of NOT knowing what will break you out follow, but by the same token, the excitement of testing out possibly stellar products follows. With that all being said, about half a week ago I was paroozing through Beautylish.com, and I was starstruck by the luminizing moisturize tinted sunscreen product! Could they ACTUALLY have my shade? From there, I looked at some lipsticks, and realized the price tag was the same as if I purchased another Jeffree Star Cosmetics product, so I went ahead and picked out three shades that spoke to me most. Below is my REVIEW of each product, and my overall review of the brand. Since the lip products vary in texture, each lipstick will have an individual thought process, and rating! I hope you loves enjoy, and do stay tuned for another review coming down the pipe.
UPDATE 1/25/17: PRODUCT CONTAINS “dimethicone” WHICH TRAPS MOISTURE, BACTERIA, AND SUCH IN, THUS CAUSING BREAKOUTS. My skin has broken out terribly from this in the long run, and it BURNS. STEER CLEAR IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE, OR ACNE PRONE SKIN!
“**” MEANS THE PREVIOUS “REVIEW” WAS UPDATED
Do be noted, as a disclaimer, ALL products were purchased with my own money, anything stated below is MY opinion, and all photos are raw, with minor touch ups of a lighting change, sharpness enhancement or a saturation enhancement. These factors DO NOT physically change the construct of each photo, they make it so you loves can see em’ clearly! Acts of “blurring” are NEVER done. Skin, is skin. If my makeup is not up to par on the lens, then it is not something I shall introduce to you beauties, though this has never, and will be never the case. Information stated below is both cited, and from my own studies. NOTHING has been copied, everything is my ideas, or shared concepts.
To not include imagery of FALSE advertisement my skin type is dry/sensitive, and any redness, or scabs happen to be hives from sadly…my nerves. With that being said, product recommendations, and your ability to relate might fluctuation, so feel free to ALWAYS ask me questions, this way you don’t end up spending money on the wrong items (for example, I use coconut oil as a base to sooth my hives, but for others this can be too oily, and NOT affective in curing one’s acne, in which I don’t have. Hives come, and go, and can sometimes last only 3 hours, so again, always ask before actually investing in products).
The foundation of my dreams is one of ample quality that doesn’t hide me, it makes me SHINE! Most dewy foundations are but foundations, and yield a coverage that is just too high for my liking. Weirdly, I like my freckles, and even those tiny imperfections to be SEEN! However, I do want a product that can be toned up coverage wise when needed. It must be fragrance free, and oil free to be the most proper fit for one with sensitive, yet dry skin! What product would fit this scenario? WELL, I have just found it is is the Jouer Cosmetics Luminizing Moisture Tint! According Jouer’s official website, “this lightweight moisturizing tint evens out imperfects and fades the appearance of fine lines with its light-diffusing multi-mineral formula. SPF 20 protects from UVA and UVB rays while Ginseng and Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract deliver antioxidants to skin, promoting a healthy complexion.” Straight off the bat I would like to point out MOST SPF products break me out, however I noticed this tinted moistuizer yielded nothing but perfect skin conditions. Probably this is due to the non-fragrance portion!
**IN THE LONG RUN PRODUCT CAUSED TINY BUMPS ON MY SKIN, AND CLOGGED MY PORES.
Secondly, I would also like to take note that MANY light-diffusing foundations have poor coverage, but this can be easily built up, and is true to the product description. For the price of $36.00 you receive nothing but jam-packed product in a 50 mL/ 1.7 fl oz squeezey tube, which is .2 less than Nars’s Pure Radiant Tined Moisturizer, for $8.00 less, too. Nars’s Tinted Moisturizer has a tendecy to make my skin a huge red pimple, however it is the best comparison wise when we’re talking tinted products so bare with me!
**PRODUCT DOES HAVE GOOD COVERAGE, BUT WAS OVERALL A DUD. LOOK INTO HORMONAL IMBALANCES WITH SUNSCREEN PRODUCTS…YOU’LL UNDERSTAND MY PAIN.
My shade: Pearl
Other available shades: Opal, Pearl, Golden, Glow, Bronzed, Caramel, Deep Bronze
They don’t have the widest foundation shade range, but if you’re Deep Bronze (tan to deep skin tones), a good color guide is number 8 in Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Product, and Carob True Color Stick by Black Opal! IF you’re light skinned, I am talking paper white, Opal is a good comparison to Siberia by Nars Cosmetics, and N0 by Cover Fx Cosmetics. Below is the product on my skin, along with my personal thoughts!
**FOR SOME REASON THE FRAGRANCE GROWS AS YOU GO THROUGH THE CONTAINER. IT IS COMPLETELY CHEMICALLY BASED.
**COMBINED THE 5%, AND 3% FORMED A NEGATIVE REACTION. SINCE THIS IS SUCH A SILKY FORMULA THAT MELTS INTO THE SKIN, IT LITERALLY GOES DEEP INTO THE PORES. I DID A CHARCOAL MASK LAST WEEK, AND HAD A MAJOR PURGE (CHARCOAL SUCKS OUT THE IMPURITIES FROM THE SKIN)! THESE BREAKOUTS BURNT, AND WERE BLEEDING, FOR REFERENCE.
When it comes to liquid lipstick you can never have too many! Whether you fancy thicker formulas, or thin formulas, at the end of the day all one desires is smooth coverage that LASTS. Jouer’s Long-Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipstick is one I have yet to test out, until today that is! I chose three colors, Cabernet (deep cool red), Daiquiri (warm metallic coral), Pétale de Rose (cool deep rose), and put them all to the same test of talking, as well as eating non-oily foods to see how long they would last! Do be noted, rather my typical collages I put the lipsticks into THREE separate reviews since the textures vary, in my opinion at least.
Metallic warm coral
Matte cool deep red
Pétale de rose
Cool deep rose
I hope this swatching style is easier for you loves to reference, rather zooming in on various collages that can sometimes look plain MESSY! As a brand I am instantly in love with Jouer Cosmetics, and look forward to purchasing more products. Any brand that can cope with my sensitive skin type, is brand worth keeping!
