Earlier this month, the glorious Jouer Cosmetics line debuted their latest product: The Anti-Aging Moisture Primer! This silky gel is designed to combat aging while simultaneously giving the skin the moisture it needs and being the ultimate base for the beauty products to come.

Here's the official word from Jouer Cosmetics:

This smooth formula is unscented and impressively silicone-free; I feel it necessary to note that this is no small feat for a primer! As aforementioned, it has a silky texture but thankfully doesn't have the overly-slippery, almost greasy feel that can often accompany primers with silicones. I am happy to report that my sensitive skin has not experienced a single reaction with this formula!

As a primer, I like to apply a pearl-sized amount on my face, directly following my morning moisturizer and a single pump of Peau Vierge. The primer blends into my face seamlessly, leaving a balanced canvas that is neither too matte, nor too dewy. I find that the formula allows my makeup to have significant longevity and my fine lines are softened by the nourishing ingredients. I don't get any oil breakthrough as the day wears on (only lightly "dewy") and my skin feels soft and comfortable.

The other new Jouer Spring 2014 release is that of the otherworldly Pink Glace lip gloss. This pinky beige-meets-rose gold is simply gorgeous! The guilded micro-shimmer adds lush depth to my lips and the ultra-moisturizing Jouer gloss formula ensures that they remain comfortable and hydrated over the course of wear.

I love wearing Pink Glace both on its own for a pared-down, casual look or over a deeper, more full coverage shade (in this case, NARS Damage) as I am doing in the images below. It adds just the right amount of sophisticated shine to transform a favorite existing lip color, making it just that much better. Thanks to Pink Glace, my two favorite Jouer lip glosses, Nude and Peony (reviewed HERE) are about to have some serious competition!

Bottom Line: The Jouer line does not disappoint. Intelligently designed to be reflective of both serious quality and impressive performance, the Jouer Anti-Aging Moisture Primer lives up to its name. My skin feels hydrated and balanced during use and my fine lines are kindly filled in by this wonder gel. Additionally, like every good primer, this formula creates the perfect canvas to which my makeup can (and does!) adhere. Highly recommended!
