Can’t get enough of NARS Orgasm? Do MAC Nymphette Lipglass and Power Surge Eye Kohl give you heart palpitations? If so, you may suffer from warm shade lust-alaria.

Don’t worry. It’s a treatable, albeit sometimes expensive condition, and one possible cure could be the new Jouer Train Case Makeup Essentials Kit ($200).

Jouer, an indie makeup line known for natural colors and their chic girl-about-town packaging, leans more toward the Clinique/Bobbi Brown end of the spectrum than the MAC/Illamasqua side, and it’s a very pretty place to be.

This adorable pink zip-up train case comes with makeup for your eyes, lips and cheeks, and a mini- blush brush.

In addition to the case and the brush you get…

  • Powder Eyeshadow in Caramel: a shimmery warm peachy gold
  • Eye Definer in Chocolat: a shimmery golden bronze
  • Powder Blush in Rose: a matte warm pink
  • Highlighter in Champagne: a shimmery peachy gold
  • Lipstick in Kiki: a shimmery peachy pink
  • Lipgloss in Glisten: a sheer, shimmery light peach with multi-colored glitter
  • Lip Definer in Rose Pale: a matte peachy pink
  • Lip Enhancer in Conditioning Lip Treatment: a colorless lip moisturizer
  • Luminizing Moisture Tints in Bronzed, Deep Bronze, Glow, Golden and Pearl: sheer, shimmery tinted moisturizers with SPF 20

…and a big $200 bill (ouch).

It’s awfully expensive ($200), but you do get a lot. Really, it breaks down to about $14 per piece, which isn’t bad if you look at it that way, so if you see yourself wearing these shades often… :)

PRICE: $200
AVAILABILITY: At Henri Bendel boutiques (find a location) and also online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+ (A if it wasn’t so expensive)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

  1. It looks absolutely beautimous on you! You’re right when you break down the price, but I still hate to spend that much all at once. I would rather spend $200 cherry picking several different brands. I would like to try Jouer though. Love that lip combo on you–very pretty.

    That case is very pretty and I love the light blush pink. $200 is a lot to pay upfront but there is a lot of stuff in there. I can’t for your review on the goodies, hopefully it is worth the price.

    You look absolutely gorgeous! Even though the holidays are coming up I can’t bring myself to drop 200 on this bad boy though… there’s so much other makeup to finish.

    What’s your favorite piece in the set?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Connie,

      That’s a tough question. The powder products are especially lovely (blush and shadow). They’re smooth and pigmented, yet still look natural. The pencils (eyeliner and lip liner) are nice too; they glide easily along the skin.

    oh my goodness that case is gorgeousssss!! im a sucker for pink things and if it wasnt for the heavy price tag, i would probably be all over this just for the case! haha :) but anyways, i cant wait to see your review of the blush & highlighter :)

    Love your swatches, which camera do you use?

  6. gio says:

    You look gorgeous! The case is very pretty too. It is an expensive kit but at least you do get a lot of things. :)

    Very pretty! Why is it that I’m so attracted to bags and cases that I don’t need and will most likely just sit in a closet with the rest of the bags/cases I *had* to have? :)

  8. knownever says:

    The packaging is a little underwhelming (lol packaging is always the first thing I notice), but that traincase itself is so pretty.

    This would be a perfect kit for keeping on the yacht.

    Unfortunately, I don’t have a yacht.

    oh my …. i should keep this in my private jet! :D

    so spendy!

  11. Rae says:

    *clutches heart* Dear lord that is a GORGEOUS set — but ouch, that price! Do they sell that lovely case on its own? (If not, they totally should!)

  12. Deb says:

    That’s a big one time investment – but the case and products are beautiful! Also, I love your necklace in your look pic!

    Very soft and pretty Karen! But strangely – the description on the Henri Bendel website doesn’t mention the luminizing moisture tints. Does the kit definitely contain the moisture tints (and are they minis or full-sized)? Thanks :D

  14. O. M. G. i NEED this. sadly my tiny budget will not allow for it… :’( and that traincase is beautiful!!

    oh my gosh.

    May I just say how beautiful you look in peach tones?

  16. Marie says:

    Obsessed with this! Do you happen to know if it’s LE or not? And how is the brush?

  17. Tracy says:

    I love how they all snap together. That’s pretty awesome. I don’t think I’ve ever seen or tried this line before.

  19. Loving that lip that you’re rocking here!

    I just don’t understand why there needs to be 5 luminizing moisture tints. I say they should put everything else in the pack but allow you to pick maybe two that matches your skintone separately.

    To be honest I don’t like buying things in sets (except for brushes!). I like stalking a product for weeks and building up the anticipation before purchasing it. Sets normally collect dust at my place

  20. KAREN! Jouer is having a 20% off sale on Black Friday–One Day Only–sitewide!!!

    Yea $200 IS a lot to pay up front but at $14 a piece, it’s a great deal. Thing is, I probably wouldn’t use everything PLUS it’s way out of my budget right now. I love how everything is so nicely packaged though!

  22. Lucie says:

    Gasp! What a lovely case! And that lipstick! I wish they didn’t include the moisture tints; it seems like that would bring the price down a lot and you aren’t likely to wear all of them. Tempting (Christmas present for myself??) but I just threw out a few hundred bucks at sephora and need to curb the spending. ;)
