On the topic of liquid lipsticks, I seem to have gone from one extreme to the other; from not being remotely interested in them to owning several and rarely reaching for anything else. The brand I’m posting about today is one that has been popping up all over Instagram and after seeing so many lovely swatches, I finally took the plunge and bought a liquid lipstick and a lip topper from Jouer.
At £15 each, these products are in the Mac kinda price range, which for me means that I’ll buy one now and then but I expect them to perform well. I went for the shade Tawny Rose in the liquid lipstick and the lip topper in Skinny Dip. I purchased mine from the Cult Beauty website which is the only place that I’m aware of that sells them in the UK.
The packaging is sturdy but not too heavy. I like that it’s transparent so that you can see when you’re running low before you’ve actually run out of product. These products have a delicious fragrance that is sweet and for some reason reminds me of childhood…marzipan? I can’t put my finger on it but it smells lovely and doesn’t hurt my fragrance-sensitive brain, so yay!
Tawny Rose is such a gorgeous shade! It’s a perfect colour for easy daytime wear. The applicator is small and doesn’t bend, which is the kind I like best for creating clean lines. It dries down relatively quickly. It can feel a little dry on the lips after a few hours wear but nothing unusual for a liquid lipstick. It survives eating and drinking impressively well.
Skinny Dip is an ideal way to lift your makeup slightly if you’re going out straight after work (I miss those days!). Applied on top of dried down liquid lipstick, it creates a gorgeous shimmer and also stops the lips feeling dry. Of course there’s no reason that it couldn’t be used during the day to sparkle up your lips and combat the dryness that tends to come with liquid lipstick.
I’m really pleased with these products. Obviously I’ve only been able to test them for a few hours at a time (Chronic Life restrictions 🙄) but I’m impressed with how transfer resistant Tawny Rose is. I think Skinny Dip should now live in my handbag to help me out on those occasions when the dryness of liquid lipstick alone is irritating me. I must check out Jouer’s more metallic liquid lipsticks…
Have you tried any Jouer products?
