So since then, I’ve been watching Jouer through their Facebook community and over the past year they’ve grown. They’re now available at Nordstrom (my new favorite place to shop, more on that in another post) and when I saw something called the Bare Beauty Collection. I decided to try it. What’s cool about Jouer is that the products attach to each other so you can create your own palette each day.
The Bare Beauty Collection Includes:
Essential Matte Touch – this mattifying balm takes away any unwanted shine
The Naturals Powder Eyeshadow Trio – shimmering beige, shimmering taupe and shimmering dark chocolate
Bare Tint – sheer rosy nude (think cream blush)
Nude Lip Gloss – creamy true nude (yes we’re back to the Pinky-Beige glosses!)
I haven’t yet tried the tint or Matte Touch but I did try the Shadow and the Lip Gloss. And I have to say that these shadows are super easy to apply. Even for people like me who can’t figure eye shadow out! They blend so easy and look really super on the eye. They go on sheer so you can build for your preferred intensity and the colors are so incredibly and perfectly natural with all the right shimmer (enough to sparkle but not so much your eyes look like tin foil). I LOVE LOVE LOVE the shadow’s. LOVE. LOVE! REALLY LOVE!
I also really love the Gloss. My only gripe is that it didn’t last long and while it’s not a long lasting gloss, I had to reapply by the time I got to work (30 minute ride). What is amazing about the gloss is that it doesn’t feel tacky and it feels as hydrating as the Lip Enhancer. Which I love because so often, I adore a gloss for color but they feel so drying on my lips. And who wants to wear a gloss that’s going to make your lips peel at the end of the day? Not me. This gloss will NOT dry your lips out. It’s really emollient. And the color is very natural. It’s the color you wish your lips were. It’s that perfect beige-y, pink that I always seek out.
The entire collection is $58 – which is very reasonable for the 4 products you receive and can be purchased via their website or through Nordstrom.
