Wearing Positano on my lips
Next on the itinerary: Capri, St. Tropez, St. Barths and Positano. But these aren’t our upcoming destinations (I wish!). They’re the four smooth and moisturizing SPF 15 Lip Sheers from Jouer ($22 each).
Sans a scent or flavor, these radiant lipsticks do more for lips than meets the eye. Not only do they impart sheer color and a light touch of shine, they also soften lips and lock in moisture, thanks to vitamin E and aloe vera.
I’m always struggling with dry lips and fighting flakes, so I appreciate the fancy formula.
Would have been even cooler if I didn’t have to reapply it every couple of hours…but things could be worse. After all, it could be drying.

These remind me of sheerer Chanel Rouge Coco Shines with the light rose scent and faint vanilla flavor removed, and $10 chopped off the price.
Although Jouer can be a tough line to track down (as far as I know, it’s only carried in two places in the U.S., at the Henri Bendel store in New York City and the Skins 6|2 store inside The Cosmopolitan hotel in Las Vegas), it is sold online.
And it might be worth the effort to locate on your next visit to New York or Las Vegas, especially if you like makeup from boutique lines and prefer lipsticks that combine sheer color and SPF (in this case, SPF 15).
I like the Jouer brand… It’s high end, and because it’s not carried everywhere, a little exclusive. Nothing flashy here. Just really pretty makeup.
PRICE: $22 each
AVAILABILITY: Limited availability in stores, but it is available online

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Ah… I’m in that post-decadent dinner phase in my pajamas on the couch. I had salmon and rice for din-din, and now I’m just waiting for a movie rental to download. Have you seen Martha Marcy May Marlene? Rottentomatoes says it’s a “powerful psychological thriller.”
I like the sound of that.
Are you out and about tonight or taking it easy at home? Tabs says hi.
