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.
