Did you feel that?? That little shiver in your loins when you laid eyes on Jouer Creme Eyeshadow in Organza? That, my friend, is what I like to call a taupe-gasm. It’s not an official word (yet), and you won’t find it in Webster’s, but it’s only a matter of time before the verbal powers-that-be enter it officially…like they did with ginormous.
They occur when when taupes hit you with a BANG! — which is exactly what went down the first time I put this creamy, $20 lavender taupe shadow on my eyes.
When I have it on I feel like my peepers shine in a way that says, “Booyah, b*tches, I got eight solid hours of sleep last night!” I think it’s the subtle sheen in the pigmented formula that does the trick. It adds just the right touch of glow without looking too glittery or frosty.
If you decide to take Organza out for a spin, you might layer a primer like NARS Pro Prime beneath it. Paired with a good primer, Organza lasts all day on my eyes with very little fading or creasing; without one, however, Organza creases in less than an hour and disappears after about three.
Texture-wise, it feels like a slightly thinner version of a MAC Paint Pot. It is on the drier side, but it still feels silky and soft, and speaking of MAC, Organza could look killer layered beneath MAC Satin Taupe…
Intrigued by the idea of Jouer Creme Shadows but not into lavender taupes? There are three other shades in the line that I think look really cute — Chiffon (a shimmery ivory), Feather (a shimmery pink champagne) and Cashmere (a shimmery golden taupe).
