Jouer Fall 2013...Paint the Town Red!

Above (from L-R): There is a red for everyone...Grace, Simone, Sophia, Lana and Ava...Holiday 2013 products in the background!
The resonant theme of the Jouer Fall 2013 Collection is red, red and more red!  I had the privilege of attending a special preview luncheon for this stunning collection earlier this month and have included pictures from the event as well as a closeup of the five red lipsticks for the season (more details on festive items from the Holiday collection soon!)

Kindly scroll on for images and swatches galore!

Above: The event took place at the Petite Ermitage, a luxe and charming hotel in West Hollywood with the most exquisite roof top garden.
Above: The setting for the intimate luncheon was the quintessential blend of simple and chic.

Onto the lip color...

 Above (from L-R): There is a red for everyone...Grace, Simone, Sophia, Lana and Ava.

It is Christina Zilber's belief that there is a perfect red for every woman and all she must do is find it; the Jouer Fall 2013 Collection makes that pursuit easy! The Jouer Hydrating Lip Color formula is lush, moisturizing, highly pigmented and easy to build up to full opacity.  Additionally, due to the premium ingredients, this lipstick is also a potent little bullet of skincare! 
  • Grace is a coral-injected bright red for those who prefer light colors and have warm skin tones and light to medium blond or red hair.
  • Simone is a dark red with blue undertones for those with cool complexions and brunette, black or dark silver hair. 
  • Sophia is an earthy, nude-infused subtle red for those with warm skin tones and medium to dark brunette hair (my personal favorite!)
  • Lana is a soft pinky-blue based red for those with cool undertones and blonde or light silver hair.
  • Ava is a bright, neutral, true red that works equally well on both cool and warm skin tones!

Above: Lana is a bright, pinky blue red.
Above: Ava is a true red for all skin tones.

Bottom Line: The Jouer Fall 2013 Collection is all kinds of gorgeous...I adore the fact that each woman has the chance to find her very own red, specifically suited to her coloring, and have found myself (an unapologetic pinky-nude lip color devotee!) embracing the subtle yet vibrant Sophia on a regular basis!

What shade are YOU?

  1. Ava looks stunning on you. Do you think you would get much wear from these compared to your nudey pinky hues? The formula of these sound very lush indeed,
    The event looked really lovely.
    How has your week been?
    Have a lovely weekend.

    Julie xoxo

    1. Hello Julie,

      Thank you! I am the first to admit that I'll always gravitate towards pinky nudes and wearing red is definitely out of my comfort zone. That being said, Sophia is a nice compromise for me ; )

      My week was insanely busy and this weekend went by in a flash! How has life been for you as of late?

      xoxo and talk soon,

  2. Dearest B.P,

    What a gorgeous post! The event looked amazing with beautiful personalized touches and an intimate setting. I absolutely love you in 'Simone' which looks fantastic with your eye makeup and skin tone. My personal faves include Simone and Lana.

    Till next time, Karen xo

  4. Thanks to your blog, I ordered Sophia. Even though I wear cool tones well, I wanted a more subtle red and this one is perfect.
