Another day, another Christmas gift set. Not only is it a mini set, but it might be liquid lipsticks. Jouer calls them Lip Creme’s. Same difference. I currently own 3 of their shades – Dulce de Leche, Lychee and Citronade Rose. I used to own Papaye, but sold is as I haven’t been brave enough to wear it. The formula of these is how I would imagine a liquid lipstick to be. It’s thin and something I like is they haven’t covered up the natural scent of the product with a weird concoction of vanilla something. They don’t smell bad, but it is something to get used to.
There are 8 deluxe sample sizes of their most popular nude shades, along with the much loved Papaye and the lip topper Skinny Dip. As you may notice, there are only 7 lip swatches.. It turns out when doing products from a circle, it’s easy to forget where you started. I put a dab of skinny dip in the centre of Creme Brûlée (last picture). I don’t know what I expected, but it doesn’t dry down and if you don’t get enough product on the wand, it smears the liquid lipstick underneath. But, used as a centre highlight situation, it works really well.
In The Box
Each Lip Creme is 4ml, compared to the 6ml full size is an absolute bargain. The shape of the tube means it takes a lot more product to fill it up. That’s why it looks as though your getting much less than other products of a similar price. But if you look at it in ml, your getting better bang for your buck with Jouer.
I picked mine up from Cult Beauty and from what I understand, they are getting one more restock in the next couple of days. After that, it’ll be gone forever. As this set is all nude, I don’t feel there is a colour I wouldn’t wear to work. Or if I’m feeling fancy, do some kind of Ombre lip. Get it now before it’s gone forever.
The Jouer Best of Nudes – Mini Gift Set is available from Cult beauty ( join the waitlist) for just £34 for a total of 32ml. Compared to £15 for 6ml normally.
