This is my first product from Jouer, after seeing it on multiple beauty gurus online I decided to try one of their products. To get hold of Jouer I looked on both Cult Beauty and Beauty Bay to see what products they had and their shade range. After looking at the shade selections for their liquid lipsticks I chose the shade Blush as it looked to be a nude rose shade aka my fave shade.
I chose one of their limited edition shades in Blush, at the time of writing it’s still available, as it looked to be one of the darker nudey shades I would wear. There are 3 shades in their limited edition anniversary shades, each £15 with 6ml of product, the same as a shade in their permanent collection. They are described on Beautybay.com as:
A long-wearing, liquid lipstick.
Offering full coverage colour, Limited Edition Anniversary Long Wear Lip Creme Matte is a weightless and non-drying pigment. In a range of both neutral and bold shades, create an effortless matte finish with the tapered, doe-foot applicator.
The one of the first things I noticed about this liquid lipstick is that it has a noticeable scent. It’s much stronger and sweeter than a NYX liquid lipstick (the only other one I can compare it to). The other thing I noticed was that the lid of the lipstick is very small and this makes application quite awkward. I really don’t like this packaging, the lid is far to small.
However it does apply nicely, a little streaky though. Initially when I applied this I applied one coat and it was a little streaky in places so I went over it with a light second layer where it needed more coverage and this was not a good idea.Whilst it didn’t dry my lips out, it make them look very dry and cakey. So I wiped it off and applied one layer, taking care to go over any patches at the end, but without applying a second layer.
With just one layer it doesn’t dry out my lips or feel uncomfortable, but it does make my lips look dry. Which I’m not a massive fan of as it can look, in my opinion, not very pretty in photos.
When I bought the shade I thought it would apply darker than it is, it’s very much a light pinky nude. Not necessarily one I would reach for. But it is a pretty shade nonetheless, and one that can make a makeup look look very fresh. Overall I’m not sure I would buy another shade from Jouer’s liquid lipstick shade, none of the others really appeal to me.
