Jouer Mini Tinted Lip Enhancer Collection

Perhaps Jouer had a Christmas wedding in mind (FUN!)?

The company, a relatively new indie line launched back in 2008, sells a full line of makeup, a handful of brushes and bags, and a small (but lovely) collection of body products.

Their colors, packaging and non-fussy style remind me of a beauty Banana Republic, but they’re nowhere near as widespread. If you can’t find them locally, they are sold online and, while this will be out of the way for anyone outside the New York area, at the Henri Bendel store on Fifth Avenue.

The Mini Tinted Lip Enchancer set comes with three little 0.15-oz. tubes of their sheer gloss in Bellini (peach), Champagne (nude) and Shiraz (berry), as well as a very small gold pouch to store them (not shown).

The colors are completely new additions to the line, but they’re essentially tinted versions of the company’s moisturizing Lip Enhancer ($14), which hydrates kissers with vitamin E, shea butter and jojoba oil.

The glosses feel thin, slick and non-sticky on my lips, and have a short-lived, faint brown sugar scent (which I like; reminds me of Josie Maran glosses).

But speaking of short-lived, these don’t have the greatest wear time. In fact, I’d say it’s only about an hour, and, beyond that, I actually find them unexpectedly drying. After a few hours of applying and reapplying them, I swear my lips feel drier and tighter than before.

Shiraz

For me, these are a case of form over function. I love the style, but I do wish they lasted longer, felt more hydrating on my lips and came in larger tubes for the price.

If you’re interested, the set’s not available for sale yet on the Jouer website, but it should be coming soon.

PRICE: $25
AVAILABILITY: Limited in stores. Coming soon online.

    hi there! :)

    thats a lovely packaging right there — but if theyre not that long wearing ill probly think twice about giving this as a gift. :/

    im checking their website out for bath and body products though!

  3. Cherie says:

    Okay, where did you get that necklace?!?! I LOVE IT!!!

  4. Trisha says:

    Shiraz looks great. That’s my favorite of the swatches. Though, yeah, that price is pretty steep, especially if it doesn’t last very long.

  5. Hmmm, I like the juiciness of it, but I def need longer wearing glosses. Ditto on the necklace!

    the packaging looks very pretty but it’s too bad they don’t last long.

    Hi Karen! how do these compare in consistency with the Korres Lip Butter Glazes? I’m a sucker for cute packaging, so these are intriguing me, despite all your warnings!!!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Erica,

      These are much thinner and have more slip. If you like very slick glosses then you might dig ‘em.

      Have you tried the Lip Butter Glazes yet? They’re kind of amazing.

    Awww, your hair is just a test run for what you’d look like with a tousled pixi cut. You could totally rock it.

    Karen-Love the necklace as well. Do not like the Korres lip butters. They are not worth the money.
    You always look terrific and your spirit lifts my day :)

    I just wanted to say my dad 93 years old passed away in his sleep Tuesday morning 1: 30 AM.
    I am happy it happened the way it did. He has suffered long enough.
    My mother took it very well. She is in the same Nursing Home. She is 86. My father’s sister is also there, she is going to be 101 in January.
    Amazing isn’t it?

    Michele

  11. Angie says:

    I actually think that you look super flippin adorable here Karen! :)) Hope that you’re havin a good week! I’ve been freezing over here in SF!

  12. Kerry says:

    Shiraz is GORGEOUS on you. Love the color, but $25 is too much to spend for glosses that don’t hang around more than an hour. :(

  13. Kim says:

    Darn, I hate that in a lip product (drying). It’s a shame because they’re very pretty and Shiraz is definitely calling to me. Not with the short wear time and drying effects, though.

    Btw, you are totally rocking that eye look. I love the gold. And your hair looks very sassy. I hope you went out to run errands – the neighbors would definitely be jealous! :)
