Get Jouer Delivered Right to Your Door! Jouer Launches Le Matchbox, a New Subscription Box Service

Published in: Daily Beauty

Chic SoCal casual makeup brand Jouer is jumping into the subscription box ring with a new quarterly service of their own, and the twist is a quiz.


Each selection (the boxes are $45 each, sent out four times/year) they send is determined by your answers to a list of questions. You take the online quiz (questions about eye color, things like that), and then based on your answers, they fill each box with a different set of products and colors to best suit you.

Each box comes with both full-sized and sample/mini items — all from the Jouer brand — and a mini magazine with product details and application tips.

Subscriptions are $45 per quarterly box, or you can also make a one-time purchase to try one for $65.

What do you think about beauty/makeup subscription box services? Do you subscribe to any of them?

I don’t at the moment, but I like the element of randomness and the surprise, depending on the price and the overall value, especially if I’m exploring a new line. In the case of this service, the $45 boxes are definitely less expensive than purchasing the products on their own would be.

For example, this Jouer Le Matchbox includes…

  • (1) full-size bottle of Daily Repair Treatment Oil
  • (1) full-size Creme Eyeshadow Crayon in Renaissance
  • (1) full-size Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Hamptons
  • (1) full-size Mineral Powder Blush in Blossom
  • (1) Eyelash Curler
  • (1) Flat Kabuki Brush
  • (1) tiny sample-size bottle of a nice perfume (smells like gardenia)

Just the full-size blush, the creme eyeshadow crayon and the gloss, for instance, would cost $74 (vs. $45 for the whole box).


As with some of these services, though, it also depends on whether you already own products from the brands (so you don’t get any dupes, unless you don’t mind).

On a completely unrelated topic…


Yes, more flamingos.

This video makes me so happy. 🙂

    Looks nice, but I prefer something with a higher value proposition, especially since I’m a control freak too, haha! I’m extremely picky. I really like ipsy in terms of value. I just got my first bag this month and it had a dual-sided eye brush, a full sized NYX lippie and 3 other deluxe samples. Their quiz is quite good too because I got all products I would use! (unless that was a fluke!) I especially like it because some of the brands I get aren’t that accessible here in Canada, like NYX. It’s a fun experience for $20 CAD!

    i have subscribed to popsugar for about 2 years. I love their box because it’s a mix of items. Usually there’s a mix of beauty, home goods, food, fashion. I haven’t subscribed to only a beauty box yet. I like surprises but I figure 1 subscription box a month is plenty.

    It’s odd that a single box costs more than a subscription. I’d try 1 box at the $45 rate but not at $65.

  3. I haven’t found a box to subscribe to yet. I guess I have commitment issues…

    This box, although it seems pricey, looks like a good deal for what you get!

    I used to be subscribed to Birchbox but I wasn’t happy with it after a few months.

  5. Looks like you’re getting good value for money with this box. That said, I don’t think I’ll subscribe to any new boxes anymore, at least not for now. Maybe once I move to a bigger place and have a spare room to stock all my make-up in 😉

    Jouer is a bit hard to come by around here, and the shades, especially Renaissance, are really appealing. Not sure I want to commit to another subbie box, but definitely worth considering! Happy holiday, Karen 🙂

    Hi Karen!! I’m very surprised they decided to do the subscription box service since most of these boxes come with goodies from different brands… It’s just not easy to justify the price tag, is it better to just get a gift set instead of committing a year’s subscription?
    I think the gift sets have reasonable price point and product quality, nothing is really phenomenal though… 🙁 One matte/bronzer powder in my set was even impossible to pick up by brush. I was very upset about it cuz the design and the color pick seems very good for ‘on the go’, and I want to keep it. Glad they will exchange a newer case for me.
    I was tempted to subscribe some boxes a while ago, but was able to stop myself doing so (Thank God!). I don’t see much importance keep accumulating unnecessary makeups, but is there anything related to makeup unnecessary? haha, hard to say.
    Thanks for the post! I hope Jouer can go far in this market.

  8. This flamingo video is super crazyy.. 😉

    I love beauty boxes and this looks good too.. but I wish we had this option in India.. 😛
