Is This the BEST Liquid Lipstick Out There?

As a beauty blogger, it’s fun to compare notes with other bloggers on what they’re using, loving, hating etc. Recently, I had an email conversation with Courtney from and since I know she too loves her liquid lipsticks, I had to ask her what her favorites are. And she stated two that I had not tried out yet: Jouer and Sugarpill. Since the Jouer ones had been high on my list, I decided to buy a few of those.

So here we have JOUER Long-Wear Lip Crème Liquid Lipstick ($18 @ in Rose Gold, Fraise Bonbon, and Blush.

So how did these do?


These are some of the most comfortable liquid lipsticks I’ve ever worn. So much so that I’d put them in the top 5, for sure. They dry down all the way to a 100% non-transferable matte finish. In this case matte does not equal desert as these dry down but not too far down where the color is uncomfortable to wear on the lips. It's like the color is not even on the lips, that's how comfortable these are. I know, yeah!

Shown above L to R:

  • Blush – a nice YLBB pink
  • Fraise Bonbon – cool berry red
  • Rose Gold – rose gold

As far as wear-time, the Blush lasted the longest, then the Rose Gold and of course, red being a super hard shade to get longevity out of, the Fraise Bonbon.


The doe foot of the applicator is pretty basic and my only complaint would be the square cap. The cap houses the wand and you hold it to apply the color. I find it’s pretty small so you have to make sure you have a good grip before applying. Then again, maybe I’ve become accustom to all the round caps out there!

Review+Swatches - Jouer Long-Wear Creme Mousse Eyeshadow

I love that there are quite a few different options when it comes to eye shadows – the finishes, the textures, if it comes in a pencil, pot or compact and then there’s the ones that comes in a creams or powder and and then there’s these spongy shadows like these from JOUER COSMETICS and their Long-Wear Crème Mousse Eyeshadows @ I’ve tried similar ones like these here and here and like the texture and longevity so how do these differ?

What I’m Loving Right … Now!

Face Love
- JOUER COSMETICS Essentials Matte Touch ($26 @ – It’s officially the season of shiny faces, so make sure you carry a translucent mattifier with you at all times. This one from Jouer really absorbs oil and contains good-for-skin ingredients like vitamins C, D & E and Willow Bark Extract.

Wipe Love - TARTE ‘Fresh Eyes’ Maracuja Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Wipes ($12/30 wipes @ – I love me some face wipes and it was only a matter of time before our tarte friends came out with some. These combine maracuja with fruit extracts to fully remove makeup and nourish the skin.

Body Love - THE GRAPESEED CO Custom Lotion in Mama’s Blend ($22/8oz @ – While I prefer a body oil to a lotion these days, I’m simply loving this lotion in grapeseed, aloe & coconut! And it’s made with quality ingredients. Make your own custom lotion with their rich vinotherapy body lotion and you can even choose your own name and bottle color.

Hair Love - PUREOLOGY ‘Strength Cure’ Restorative Masque ($50/5.2oz @ – No matter what month the calendar says, my strands always seems in need of a hair mask. This latest mask from one of my favorite hair care lines fortifies strands with Asta-Repair including Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant, which  reduces breakage of micro-scarred/damaged color-treated hair.

Fragrance Love - RAW SPIRIT Wild Fire EDP ($35/7.5ml rollerball @ – this warm scent pays tribute to one of the founder’s native land of Australia with sandalwood, creamy amber along with ylang ylang, jasmine on a base of musk and cedarwood. Really nice.

Love the Matte Look? Look to Jouer!

Jouer-Matte-Moisture-TintFile this under #beautybloggerproblems! I have too many products for all parts of my body and sometimes I misplace them only to come upon them another time, which is exactly what happened with

JOUER’s Matte Moisture Tint. I’ve been yeah and neh on tinted moisturizers and most have fallen in the neh category for some reason. I think that unless one contains a high SPF, I’ll just use a foundation instead. But I have to admit, they are convenient on those mornings when you are in a hurry.

So how is this one from Jouer? I’m really liking it. It’s oil-free, hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic and fragrance-free, so if you have sensitive skin, you might want to consider this one. And they even put some good-for-skin ingredients in it – their own Multi-Mineral Complex of vitamins A, C and E, and a SPF 15.

And the best trait? It leaves a nice matte finish so you can wear this as-is, or as a base for other makeup. You have to admit, finish is everything! Available in 5 shades for $38/1.7oz @

2012 Holiday Pick - Jouer Sparkle & Pop

I wanted to get this next pick up sooner than later as I think it would make a great hostess gift and I’m sure you will have quite a few parties you will be attending in the coming weeks.

What it is: JOUER Sparkle & Pop Holiday Party Favor – it contains a Chic Cocktail Ring, Beauty Fortune, Mini Champagne Bubbles and one of three Jouer Deluxe Samples: Body Butter, Essential Lip Enhancer or Glistening Lip Gloss.

Why I like it: I’m very familiar with Crackers from England as they are a very popular item around the holidays, especially Christmas and the days leading up to it. The traditional ones always contain a joke, a party hat and a prize. So it's clever that Jouer gave theirs a twist and packaged their item up inside one.

Price: $12 @

Review+Swatches - Jouer Bare Beauty Collection

How often do you actually think of the packaging your makeup comes in? I mean, really look at it and think about it? Most lines use the same standard containers that, while the colors may be new, the packaging is boring and, well, just has no thought behind it.

One that does not buy into that book is the JOUER line. Their snap or slide together packaging makes it fun to put together your own “palette” to take out on the go with you.

The latest addition to their line is the Bare Beauty Collection. Click after the jump to see more pictures and color swatches.

Review+Swatch - Jouer Lip Sheer SPF 15

I’m kind of a big fan of tinted anything – face cream and especially lippies. The latest is JOUER Lip Sheer SPF 15 and this is a tinted oh-so-good-for-lips sheer colored balm. Each light vanilla-scented balmy has vitamin E and aloe to moisturize and just a slight kick of color. Great for when you don’t feel like wearing makeup but need a little something to look polished. Shown here - St. Barths – sheer coral red, Positano – sheer berry wine $22 @
