Oh, Jouer, you’re so fun!

Get it…? Jouer? Means “play” in French?



If you’re unfamiliar with the brand, their limited edition holiday sets are a Fete Fabulous way to break the ice.

The 5-piece Fete Fabulous kit for eyes, cheeks and lips (regularly $112, on sale now for $54) comes with a warm honey matte bronzer and a sheer rosy pink cream blush for cheeks, a shimmery gold cream eyeshadow stick and a powder eyeshadow duo containing a matte beige and an espresso brown for eyes, and a sheer berry pink gloss for lips.

I wore the kit a lot last weekend while visiting my in-laws in Redding, and it was juuust enough makeup to satisfy my appetite.

Jouer is an upscale, boutiquey line out of So Cal with a chic, understated, effortless vibe. I love their style and like to wear their stuff on weekends, or whenever I crave easy definition.

The sheer glosses in the Bisou Bisou and French Kiss lipgloss kits are fine, if not fun, especially if you like to layer sheer gloss on top of your lipstick.

If, however, your lips get dry and cracked this time of year, you may want to start with a layer of lip balm, because the glosses aren’t incredibly moisturizing.

As for the Le Petite Brush Set, on sale now for $35 (regularly $70), the bristles feel nice and soft, but brush heads themselves feel a bit stiff. They don’t have as much give as I usually like.

Because of that, these brushes do a decent job controlling cream products, but when it comes to pushing powder products around, I wish the brush heads had more give.

A lady-date lippie…

Of course my lady-date last night with my friend Marisol would have to include a quick MAC counter stop.

Marisol wanted a red lipstick, so I helped her pick out a lippie and a liner…and then I grabbed a bottle of Fix+ and a pan of Uninterrupted. 🙂

Not the most exciting mini haul in the history of the world, but they’re products that I know I’ll use daily, or almost daily…which is kind of exciting in its own way, right?


While we were at the counter Marisol and I had a lengthy discussion about MAC Warm Soul blush.

Remember Warm Soul?! Such a good color! I need to put it back into my regular rotation again soon.

Have you been obsessing over any blushes lately?

    this came at the perfect timing (or worse, considering how i really do not need to be spending more money on makeup… hahaha)

    i’ve been looking forever for swatches of the jouer sets but couldn’t find any. thanks for inspiring me to buy them 🙂

      Hi Tiffany,

      I know what you mean. I suffer from the “One for you, one for me!” syndrome whenever I go holiday shopping. LOL!

      If you end up picking up one of these sets let me know. I think you’d love the 5-piece one. It’s easy to wear and the colors are super pretty.

      Happy holidays!

    The french kiss sets are available at 🙂

  3. Kwmechelle says:

    Love the sales price on these sets. Seems like a bargain. Ahhhh, Uninterrupted. Not very impressive looking in the pan, but it’s my daily drug of choice. Warm Soul is also very pretty.

    I haven’t been itching for blush lately. Well, I take that back. I WANT the Benefit Majorette blush. Swatched it at Sephora & now I’m kinda feenin’ for it- like Jodeci :).
    You asked about my fave purple shadow. I don’t have a lot in my stash, but if I had to pick, I’d say the purple in the UD electric palette is my fave. It’s like a grape purple & we are very close friends. Tehehehe

  4. Hehe, girls are such enablers, right? 🙂 ‘let’s go SHOP!’ Love the look of those Jouer swatches, the cheek tint and the lip gloss look really pretty.

    Jouer is one of those brands that always seems (to me) to have pretty and wearable things. They’re on my list of brands to try but I’m glad you said that about the lippies not being very moisturizing. I know not to grab one of those! 🙂

  6. Fancie says:

    Such cute sets! Kinda random, but I’m really digging the new Fix+ packaging. It looks all modern and chic. Nice, MAC!
