Brand Alert: Jouer Cosmetics

Once again thanks to Twitter and incredible beauty bloggers, I was brought to the attention of Jouer. I've never even heard of the brand but upon investigation, it became apparent that it had a huge following in the US. When I saw the packaging I thought now that's some sleek and stylish packaging! And the fact that you can click and connect most of the items in the range to form your own customised palette made it even more special!

On a shoot today, I finally got a chance to use:

Luminizing Moisture Tint 
This gorgeous oil-free tinted cream offers an SPF of 20 and is packed with Ginseng and Gingko Biloba Leaf extract to nourish and promote beautiful skin. The light diffusing multi minerals also help blur imperfections and create a glowy finish. It is also water-resistant! Available in 5 Shade: Pearl, Golden, Glow, Bronzed and Deep Bronze.

Age-Repairing Perfector
This is my new love! 10 shades of smooth sheer cream that you can layer to give necessary coverage. Packed with Vitamin E, Arnica Oil and Japanese Tea Extract to help take down redness and tone skin without any heaviness. I used this after a sheer layer of the Luminizing Tint and my models' skin was perfect!

So these are the 2 products that I have used so far from Jouer. There are more but I will post another time after I've actually used them. Remember I said I used the Tint and Perfector on shoot, it was with 5 lovely young ladies of various skin tones. So have a look!

I wanted them to look gorgeously sumptuous with dewy skin and nothing else. It's all about healthy glows!
Face Prep: La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellar 3 in 1 Solution, Sisley Botanical Floral Spray, Emma Hardie Hydrating Lighter Lotion, SUQQU Lip Essence Cream R.
Face: Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint, Jouer Age-Repairing  Perfector.
Eyes: MAC Taupe Blusher, Revitalash Volumising Mascara, Paris-Berlin Beige Pencil.
Brows: MAC Clear Brow Fix.
Cheeks: Jouer Tint.
Lips: SUQQU Lip Essence Cream R.
Powder: SUQQU Nuancing Loose Powder in Glow.

UK readers can find Jouer Cosmetics stocked at Cult Beauty.

As you can see from the line up, I have a pale Russian, a red Danish and also a dark Eritrean and I still managed fine with the Jouer products. I've been using a lot of tints layered with concealer or cream foundation. I find that in the summer months when I don't really need a lot of coverage, this method gives a really easy to control coverage and glow to your skin. What do you guys think? As always thoughts and comments are very welcome.
