Jouer Long Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipsticks are Sweet
Let's briefly talk about packaging. Her liquid lipsticks & lip glosses are packaged just as you see here. Very sleek & sophisticated! Clear plastic (almost glass like encasing). Soft applicator. One side of the packaging (as all her products have) has a groove. ALL of her makeup CONNECTS to one another! So if you purchase a blush, eyeshadow, highlighter, lipstick etc. You can connect all four things. I thought that was a very SMART concept. Now the liquid lipsticks!
(matte warm deep pink)Almost all Jouer products have FRENCH names! This has to be the HAPPIEST pink ever! I wasn't sure how this pink would look on me. But it turned out great and was very complimentary to my skin tone. It looks like a carnation pink. All of her lip products smell like cake. It must be a California thing, because Anastasia Beverly Hills, Kylie and Jouer almost smell the same.
(matte warm nude)Creme Brulee applied a little patchy. It took several swipes to get this coverage. The color is ok on me. I think it blends a little too closely to my skin color. It kind of reminds me of a ballet slipper. I think it would look better on lighter skin tones.
(matte cool muted violet)I love purple! That's my color! The color Cassis is very refreshing. I don't have any matte violet lipsticks in my collection. It's soft and perfect for Spring & Summer.
Jouer Petale De Rose
(matte cool deep rose)
Petale de Rose is another soft shade. It's a nice wash of color for the lips.
(matte warm chocolate brown)Noisette is what you would call a WEARABLE brown! This is the toned-down version of Kylie's True Brown K (Christina even said it herself HaHaHa) And she is right! It reminds me of a milk chocolate candy kiss.
Fraise Bon Bon
(matte cool berry red)This is a blue red and it is BOLD! I can rock a red lip and this one is beautiful! I didn't mention performance of these liquid lipsticks because I was saving my thoughts until I got to this one. ALL of them have staying power! They will not budge! Apply, but when they dry...they are glued to the lips! HaHaHa BUT THIS ONE ESPECIALLY! Three makeup wipes and I still had RED LIPS! HaHaHa From Friday to Sunday! This one will laugh at your makeup wipes. You better bust out the Micellar Water, Cleansing Oil and anything else in your makeup arsenal. I would only wear this if you're going to an event wear you want your red lipstick to STAY. LOL Also don't make a mistake applying this, because the red stain will be REAL! LOL
(metallic cool bronzed pink)Jouer's metallics (the one's below) are exactly that! Expect shimmery lips! Some can be worn on their own and others I prefer as toppers. These cool tone metallics would look great on lighter skin tones in my opinion. I think the darker the hue, they start looking disco-ball-lip-ish. I love Praline. This is one that will compliment all skin tones. It's very pretty and I love the name.
Citronade de Rose
(metallic ballet pink)
This is one that I think would look better as a topper. Pretty, but might be too much on it's own.
(mettalic warm peach)
Beautiful soft peach color, but works better as a topper.
(metallic warm gold)
It's a soft, beautiful gold! But I think it would look better as a topper.
You'll notice, that many Jouer products are labeled either COOL or WARM. Some of both worked for me. In my opinion, many of these liquid lipsticks are VERY cool-toned. So you should consider that if you're a more Warm Tone Girl. Through trial & error this year and year's past I'm realizing cool tones don't always compliment me unless they are a darker color. THE QUALITY of her lipsticks are EXCELLENT. The harder part is finding a color that will compliment you (especially if you're medium to a darker skin tone). Jouer is very diverse in their campaigns (I definitely applaud that). I just find her makeup compliments a lighter skin tone better (nothing wrong with that). That's just my observations and personal opinion after sampling these. But they're an excellent company. Also realize Jouer is a small company that is growing. So products run out fast and may not come back into stock right away. Sometimes it takes a couple of months. So if you want something, get it. They're sold at Nordstrom and these retailers.
