With Three Products and a Leopard-Print Bag, Jouer’s Party Perfect Holiday Set Has Hard-Working Pet Assistants Saying Meow

Jouer Party Perfect

With the leopard-print canvas bag that comes with the set

Does anyone ever have fun at work holiday parties? I envy you if you do, because when I worked in the city, I did not.

It was a stuffy office bloated with big egos and rife with corporate intrigue!



OK, not really. :) But it was very hard to unwind around my bosses, and when I absolutely, positively couldn’t wiggle my way out of it, I’d show up to make an appearance, say “Hi!” to whoever might notice my absence, and peace out quietly as soon as I could sneak out the door…

The parties are better now at my current gig as assistant to the CEO of Tabs the Cat Industries, LLC.

Tabs usually invites all of his kitty modeling peers and industry heavyweights (like Choupette, Karl Lagerfeld’s feline associate), and of course there’s always an open bar where the catnip cocktails flow freely…

I don’t really get to par-tay like a rockstar because of my admin duties, like making sure the guests get home safely and that no one steals anything (don’t get me started on the time a Ragdoll pilfered Tabs’ fine art collection).

Long story short, these occasions are usually quite entertaining, and they give me an excuse to wear party makeup.

Thing is, I can’t go really over the top since these are technically work gigs. I still have to look somewhat responsible, which is why Jouer’s Party Perfect holiday kit might work perfectly.

Jouer Party Perfect

In my paw for scale…

When I showed this three-piece set to our CEO, he promptly sent this memo: “Mrrroow. Meeeeow. *Purr*”

That’s corporate shorthand for “Chic and sophisticated. I approve.” :)

The limited edition release comes with three Jouer makeup essentials for classically simple party looks, and it comes with a roomy zippered leopard-print canvas bag, inside which you’ll find…

Jouer Meg

Meg Lipstick

Jouer’s Hydrating Lipstick in Meg, a creamy, moisturizing honey pale pink with Brazilian Cupuacu Butter. Perfect for a classic nude lip.

Because my lips are so pigmented, I like to bump it up with a lip liner, and top it off with a sheer pink gloss for extra shine.

Jouer Leopard Liquid Shimmer Eyeliner

The set also comes with Liquid Shimmer Eyeliner in Leopard, a bronzed chocolate liquid liner that softly shimmers to take your cat eyes up a notch from basic black.

The water-based, paraben-free formula, which Jouer says gives you a little extra time to play while it dries, contains Vitamins A and E.

This one I like mostly for the wear time; it lasts all day long for me without creasing or budging.

Jouer Noir Mascara

Noir Mascara

Lastly, a tube of Everyday Effortless Mascara in Noir pulls everything together. This pitch black mascara moisturizes and conditions lashes with Vitamin E, and like the Leopard Liner, it’s also paraben-free. A good, albeit basic option for non-clumpy, natural-looking lashes with decent definition.

Now, if your idea of work party makeup is two sets of false lashes, cut-crease eyeshadow and a truckload of glitter, this set probably won’t be flashy enough for ya, but if your holiday parties call for polished, pretty looks, it just might be perfect.

    Hi Karen,
    What were you doing when you used ti work in the City?
    Btw, I really like this look. I would like to try some Jouer products but not sure where to find them in Montreal.

  4. Chelsea says:

    That’s the kind of lipstick I always want to wear but look terrible in. I have really pigmented lips, nudes for me have to have more color and be sheer.

    I love the liner on you, but your blush is bangin’ here – what products are you wearing?

  5. Erin says:

    What a lovely liner! The contrast between the shimmery brown and your darker hair is really striking. I’ll be checking that one out.

    Omg Karen I am loving this look. May I ask which foundation, blush and powder are you wearing.? Thanks so much!

  15. I’ve recently just came across Jouer products and really loving their selection. This one is no exception. Very subtle shades yet so pretty. That Meg lipstick is definitely my kind of color. I can’t wait to try their Bare Beauty collection, just waiting of it to arrive ^^
