Jouer Long-Wear Liquid Lipstick

Hello there! Long time, no blog! Well I don’t think it’s been too long, but long enough anyway. Who knew spring was going to come early this week? I hope you have the same warm and sunny weather I’ve been having here. I have a positive review for you here today, on the Jouer Long-Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipstick. That’s the longer name for it anyway. I didn’t want to write ALL of that in the title of this post. Not that I haven’t had long post titles.

“This weightless, long-wear liquid lipstick offers full coverage color with a soft-touch finish that glides on smoothly and lasts all day.” – Jouer website product description

I only have the shade Bronzed Rose so far, but I recently just ordered 2 more! Funny thing, is that I saw these on the Forever 21 website in the makeup section. They’ve actually added quite a few different brands. I was really surprised to see Jouer on there, and I had been curious about these liquid lipsticks. Last I knew, they still had the shade Penny on there, but that was it. I also ordered that shade from the Forever 21 website as well. The 2nd shade I ordered, was Dulce De Leche from the Nordstrom website. So, I am excited to try those shades as well.

The Bronzed Rose, is a gorgeous metallic cool deep rose shade. It is full-coverage and goes on very smoothly. It feels light on the lips, dries down quickly, and really is long lasting. It lasted through eating and drinking. It’s not overly drying on the lips. Obviously, it’s going to be a little drying because it is a liquid lipstick. I normally don’t like liquid lipstick, but I am making an exception for this one. I just loved it so much, that I needed two more in different shades! I am really anxious to see if they perform as well as this one.

The packaging is clear with a black top. The wand is a doe foot applicator, it’s a nice size, and it’s easy to use. Normally liquid lipstick has round packaging, where this one does not. It has kind of an indent on one side. I am thinking you can connect these together? I’m not completely sure, but I assume that’s why it’s there. If anyone knows for sure, let me know in the comments. I guess I will find out one way or another when I get the other two I ordered.

The picture down below, was taken before I went out to dinner. So lipstick is fully intact. I paired it with my Laritzy lip liner in the shade Roseberry. Though I really don’t think you need to wear a lip liner with this lipstick.

Here is a photo with how it looked after. It wore off a little bit toward the center of my lips. I really don’t think it looks bad though. I think it’s just the lighting in the picture and the shine on my lips that make it appear as though it came off more. If you look at my picture above, it pretty much looks the same, same lighting and all.

Overall, I really love this liquid lipstick. I love it enough to buy two more, when they’re priced at $18 each. You might recognize my before picture from Instagram. Be sure to follow me on there, I will be posting what the other two shades look like. Well, that concludes this post. I hope you enjoyed it! If you have tried the Jouer liquid lipstick, let me know your thoughts in the comments. Also, don’t be afraid to just say hello! 🙂  Thanks for reading! ❤

Thank You Hippy Lip!

Hello there! I hope everyone is having a great week so far. I’ll admit, that mine has had a bit of a rough start. I was meaning to get this post published much sooner, but it’s better late than never right? I won this amazing giveaway in December from Kristy from her blog Hippy Lip. She sent me the Sephora Favorites – Give Me Some Bold Lip set, along with a full-size Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in the shade Stepping Out. She also included a Colourpop highlighter in the shade Churro, which is extremely generous! Thank you so much Kristy! ❤

First, I’m going to talk about the Give Me Some Bold Lip set. I will go over each shade and tell you my thoughts…

20170206_003408

[There will be swatches at the end of the descriptions. I am going in the order of most favorite to least favorite…I can’t tell you how long they wear for, these are just my initial impressions.]

Sephora Collection Rouge Cream Lipstick in R49 Belly-Dancing – This one was my favorite out of the bunch, and has become my perfect shade of red ❤ The formula is very creamy and very hydrating. I loved it so much, that I ordered the full-size. I also really want to check out the other shades in this collection. I highly recommend that you do too.

Ciate London Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick in Head Over Heels – This shade can be described as a “fuchsia berry” shade. I really liked this one as well. It felt really comfortable on the lips for being a liquid lipstick. I was really surprised with how smooth my lips looked after applying it. If you have a problem with liquid lipstick because it’s too drying, definitely give this one a chance!

Tarte Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint in Yaassss -This was definitely an interesting shade of purple to try. It is described as being Lavender. This one was lightweight, but a bit more on the drier side. Good exfoliation and some lip balm can help out a lot when wearing this lippy.

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Aubergine – Aubergine is a nice deep eggplant shade. The formula is matte yet hydrating. It doesn’t seem too over drying. I feel like Sephora picked some great options for bold lips with this set. This crayon is supposed to be waterproof, and I am looking forward to testing that out later.

Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in An Affair -This shade is very similar to the Bite Beauty Aubergine crayon. You will see that when we get to the swatches down below. This shade is described as being a deep plum. The Bite Beauty is perhaps a little bit deeper of a shade. This lipstick is very moisturizing and has a satin-matte finish. I absolutely love the color of this one! The only reason that I put this lower on the list, is because it does bleed a lot. I didn’t use a lip liner, so obviously, you will need to use a lip liner with this lipstick.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Damned – This is one made it to the bottom of the list, not for it’s super dark color, but because it’s very patchy when you’re trying to apply it. That can happen with darker shades though, and this shade is described as black cherry. Does this put me off from trying other shades of the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick? No. I really want to try one of the lighter shades and see how well that performs. I heard the lighter ones work much better.

Finally! The swatches! Going from left to right: Tarte’s Yaassss, Ciate London’s Head Over Heels, Sephora’s Belly-dancing, Bite Beauty’s Aubergine, Laura Mercier’s An Affair, and Kat Von D’s Damned. All of these shades were pretty hard to remove from my arm, especially Damned. That one did not want to budge!

Next, I’m going to be talking about the Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in Stepping Out. I have the other Sephora Favorites Lip set that has the mini of this lipstick. So it will be nice to have a full-size to keep at home, and a mini one to throw into my purse. This shade is described as being a deep nude. To me it is a very brown-toned nude, but it’s a gorgeous shade! This lipstick has a matte finish, and claims to be long-wearing as well as waterproof.

20170206_004538

Such a gorgeous creamy formula! It’s very lightweight too! I also love the wand, which I have pictured down below…

20170206_004353

Now I’m going to finish up this post by talking about the gorgeous Colourpop highlighter in Churro…

20170206_004717

Churro has a pearlized finish and is a coppery peach shade, with gold shimmer and silver glitter. Colourpop’s highlighters are so smooth and have buildable pigment. Down below is a picture of what it looks like as a swatch and blended out.

I have a couple of other Colourpop highlighters as well, let me know if you would be interested in seeing those. I could do a post, or even just some swatches on social media. OR I could even share with you all of my collection, which would have to be done on Insta-stories, or it would be a really long post to write! Anyhow, what are some of your favorite bold lip products? Or Colourpop products? Let me know in the comments down below. Thank you again to Kristy from Hippy Lip, I really appreciate everything you sent me! ❤ Definitely check out Kristy’s blog and give her a follow. She is an amazing blogger! 🙂 I hope you all have a great rest of the week!
