Jouer Ready To Wear Warm & Cool Collection Palette (On Sale) and Stila Black Diamond Review and Swatches

Thanks so much for the compliments on my makeup in yesterday's OhConcept Collection post! I was wearing Jouer! Over the weekend, Jouer announced they were having a Spring Clearance Sale of up to 50% off (Kiss em Goodbye Sale). Well I noticed both the Jouer Ready To Wear Warm Collection and Cool Collection Palettes were included. I'm really not surprised they are included in this sale, because these were Jouer's very first palettes and now makeup companies are producing more limited edition makeup/palettes. I purchased these palettes last year, during a Jouer sale for about $25 ea (now they are on sale for $19 ea). I never reviewed them, because I never used them. I showed them on Snapchat, took pictures and that was that. Well when I got the OhConcept skirt, I thought about the sparkly black in the Cool Collection and thought it would work well with my outfit. So I thought this was the perfect time to review both & let you guys know about the sale (not sponsored, I just keep up with brands)!

Jouer Ready To Wear Warm Collection Palette - Sweet

This is Jouer's WARM palette. BOTH the warm and cool palettes have a bronzer, blush, highlighter and eye shadow selection.  Both the warm and cool palettes have the SAME bronzer & highlighter. So the only difference in the two palettes are the eye-shadows & blush. The bronzer works with my skintone. It's a very pretty and natural looking brown. I used it as a contour around the perimeter of my face and also down the sides of my nose. The blush is called PEACH GLOW and that it is! Now this palette was initially made in '14 or '15, there's no way Christina of Jouer knew PEACH would be the hot color for makeup in '16-'17 (maybe she did, because fashion designers know what will be hot in advance). It's really pretty on the cheeks (see my face swatch) and blends in beautifully with all of my makeup. I used three (3) of the eye shadows in the palette. I used Sahara in my crease, Lace under my brow (excuse my eyebrows. trying to let them grow in) and Cognac on the lid and under my eye. If you want extra sparkle, use Fireside. I put the highlighter down the bridge of my nose. I was worried, because it was so white...but it's very subtle and pretty. I'm wearing Jouer's Papaye on my lips. The pigmentation of Jouer's makeup is very good. There is some fall out with the last eye shadow. Lots of sparkle. So apply your eye makeup first if you use that one. This palette has a square mirror. The palette is magnetized for easy closure. The only thing about these cardboard palettes (Jouer's newer palettes are constructed differently) is that they get really dirty as you use it. Be sure to follow me on Instagram (@averysweetblog) and watch my Instagram Story. I'll show you!

Jouer Ready To Wear Cool Collection Palette - Sweet

Now here is the COOL palette! Same bronzer, same highlighter as the WARM palette. The blush in this palette is called ROSE GLOW. It's a very pretty pink shade. I used three of the eye shadows in this palette. Wisp under my eye brow. Twig in my crease. Rum on my lid and under my lower lashes. I'm wearing Jouer Citronade Rose on my lips.

Stila Black Diamond - Supersweet

Yesterday, you saw Jouer's Havana (Cool Palette) along with Stila's Black Diamond (gifted to me by Little Luxury List) on my eyes. I haven't really purchased any Stila products. Just an eyeliner years ago. I'm REALLY IMPRESSED with the pigmentation of this eye shadow. Gorgeous color and very little fallout (if any). It's a dark silverish gray. I need to get more of these. I could've smoked out my top lid more, but I would need an inbetween shade. I forgot to mention, on my lips I'm wearing (wait for it) MAC x Cinderella Happily Ever After. I use my makeup :D

If I weas to get one (which I am not, I dont like palettes), it would be the warm one. Cool tones dont work too well with my skin tone. Is the bronzer really neutral? It is a little hard to tell from the pictures.

Oh wow! I'm just loving that warm collection palette on you. So, so beautiful and complimentary


Miss Val's Creations said...

These look beautiful on you Kim!

Mica T said...

They are both really nice palettes on you Kim - great that they are on sale too, although it sucks a little when you see things on sale for less than what you paid, haha!

Thanks for doing a post on your eye makeup too, that Stilla shadow is so pretty! :)

Hope you are having a good start to the week!

Ooh the palettes are nice in different ways. The metallic lip shades are so cool!
I'm so glad you like the Stila eye shadow. I love the color on you and that little sparkle! I've liked Stila for a while, but forgot about them so am glad to rediscover its products.

Shireen L. Platt said...

Cool tones never work well for me and God knows I have tried multiple times. They just sit really weird against my skin tone. And metallic lips suits you so well, Kim!

Tanya Dufour said...

I love the looks that you created! The Warm Palette def calls to me!

Jalisa Giron said...

It's no surprise you got many compliments on your makeup look because you looked gorgeous, though you always do ;) I'm glad you liked both palettes. I've heard of the brand before, but have never tried them out, perhaps I should! I love the shadow colors and LOVE those lip colors on you, metallic shades look really good on you, Kim! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a lovely day so far!



Shira said...

These palettes look really pretty and seem to swatch beautifully! I've always wanted to try jouer cheek products but I don't love doing that without seeing in person first.


Cee said...

I'm always a bit wary of full face palettes because I have, historically, found that at least one of the products in the palette doesn't really work with me and then I'm stuck with all of them. But in the case of these two, they colours really do look universally flattering and both looks suit you so well! I'm really interested in trying Jouer myself now.

Clare said...

Both these palettes look really pretty! Love your lip colours in this too :)


Rowena @ rolala loves said...

50% off is such a great deal Kim! And even better is how pretty both of these palettes look on you :) I love both of the blush shades and looking at you rocking those metallic lips.

Pamela RG said...

You matched the warm collection palette perfectly with the pink lipstick. Looks great on you.

Ashley Sue said...

Both palettes are gorgeous, and you look beautiful Kim! I love the blush from the cool toned palette, that is seriously so pretty! Your makeup looks amazing using both palettes and the Stila eyeshadow. I also love both lip colors on you, especially that Mac one!! I haven't tried Jouer before. And I also need to try out more from Stila!

Yiotou_La said...

I already commented on your gorgeous metallic lipstick on your instastories Kim, it's gorgeous and really suits you!! Haven't tried anything from Stila but both palettes look great!

the lip colours are so pretty on you.

I love the warm palette, it gives you a super healthy and sexy glow! Peach is your color! I also love the metallic lips! The black diamond eyeshadow is a blast too! Baci, Valeria - Coco et La vie en rose FASHION & BEAUTY

Ooooo....Kim, both the palettes look fab on you! That's freaking awesome! I find cooler tones don't suit me as much as the warm ones, but both these Jouer palettes look like they're really wearable on any skin tone...yay! And yay on both lippies:)

PS Love Stila. I think it's one of the best makeup brands out there.

Loving this - especially the little video. I don't think I could pull of the Stila eyeshadow but it looks amazing on you! x

These palettes look really pretty and they are both appealing although I prefer warmer tone shades. The only cheek product I've tried from Jouer are their highlighters. The swatches are beautiful.

Oh so many gorgeous shades!!! *.* Both palettes seem amazing, I loved the blushes so much, and from the eyeshadows, cognac might be my favorite shade. However, they are all beautiful and look amazing on you, dear. :)


Sharmili R said...

I wish more brands focused on better permanent collections. Most of the brands that put out limited edition collection after limited edition collection lack in quality control :( Both the palettes look gorgeous! I like how they produced the same palette with various colors-- I wish more brands would do that! That stila eyeshadow sounds really impressive! So many black shadows are patchy or filled with fallout-- especially glittery ones. This one looks gorgeous on you!

Pigmentation really looks superb. And I also love your lip color. I'm kind of into metallic lip creams lately. Although I haven't posted anything about them yet, it's because I'm still on the lookout for the perfect metallic lip cream for me... But yeah, I can't stop staring at other people's lips when they're wearing metallic. xD


Leah and Rachel Collins said...

You look incredible with these makeup looks! I especially love the sounds of the black eyeshadow from Stila - can never have too many black eyeshadows!

I've been hearing a lot about Jouer lately (though mainly from overseas bloggers, and not so much in the UK yet) and have become intrigued. The metallic lip shades all look SO gorgeous and so it's brilliant to see something else from their line! Thanks for the review Kim :)


Samantha Mariko said...

I absolutely love these close ups of you wearing some of the colors from the palette! It makes it so much easer to see how they look on the skin :)

Looking forward to your next post my beauty! Baci, Valeria - Coco et La vie en rose FASHION & BEAUTY

I've only heard about Jouer's lip products, so it's nice to see a review of their other products. The colors of both palettes look really nice on you. Thanks for letting us know about the sale!

Love the sexy smokey eyes you created Kim. These palettes look great for travel.
