A Style & Beauty Look + Swatches of ALL 16 Shades of the Brilliant Jouer Long-Wear Lip Creme

Happy Easter weekend, lovelies! What do you have planned?  My spring break has just begun and I am grateful to have some much needed time off...resting, organizing, blogging and filming await!

Earlier this month, the *Jouer Long-Wear Lip Creme (also available at Joyus and Jouer) debuted and promptly sold out; today, I am happy to report that the stock continues to be replenished and many shades are now again available.  Consequently, this post offers a swatch-heavy glimpse at all shades as well as a comprehensive style and beauty look that resonates with the warm and sundrenched weather we've been having as of late.

Kindly scroll on for more details, a host of swatches, and a full style and beauty look as well as the Bottom Line...

All 16 shades of the Jouer Long-Wear Lip Creme. 
I have had the luxury of experimenting with this formula for the past few weeks and am incredibly impressed thus far.  Matte formulas, in general, pose problems for my perennially dry lips and I am frequently underwhelmed by their parched finish and heavy, opaque effect that is often prone to cracking and uneven wear.  

That being said, the Jouer Long-Wear Lip Creme is refreshingly hydrating, weightless and comfortable on the lips.  Just a small amount offers intense color payoff and coverage and, once it dries down (in 5 seconds or so), it sets to a smooth and velvety cloak of color. I get hours of touch up free wear and cannot believe how evenly it wears.  

In my opinion, the two most notable qualities that set the Jouer formula apart from its contemporaries are (1) the shades with a metallic finish and (2) the immense spectrum of options in the nude/light pink family.  I am so smitten with the soft, reflective nature of the metallic shades (especially Citronade Rose)--which is rare in a long-wear formula--and am hard pressed to choose a favorite nude shade from the veritable wealth of options. 

In sum, those seeking full coverage, long lasting lip color with a comfortably hydrating texture must give the Jouer Long-Wear Lip Creme a try...the pursuit and (perhaps) wait for your color of preference is well worth the wait! 

The Jouer Long-Wear Lip Creme comes in 16 shades in both matte cream and metallic finishes:
  • Pamplemousse: Metallic golden champagne beige
  • Papaye: Metallic pale peach with golden pink undertones
  • Creme Brulee: Warm, peachy beige 
  • Melon: Neutral light nude pink...so natural and easy to wear
  • Dulce de Leche: Slightly deeper nude pink
  • Peche: Light peach 
  • Citronade Rose: Metallic ballet pink...so unique and one of my favorites
  • Lychee: Mauve pink
  • Praline: Metallic medium pinky bronze nude
  • Petale de Rose: Medium neutral pink
  • Frambois: Strawberry pink...vibrant and lovely and perfect for spring
  • Noisette: Deep netural brown
  • Cassis: Purple-meets-pink-meets-mauve
  • Fruit de la Passion: Bright fuchsia pink
  • Cerise: Bold warm red
  • Fraise Bon Bon: Classic and cool bright red
I swatched all 16 shades in both sunlight and shade in the images below:

I also divided the shades into 4 sub-categories for compare and contrast purposes: METALLICS, NUDES, PINKS and BOLDS:

  5. Rachel, Thank you for dedication to swatching - especially from lines that don't always receive as much blog-esphere coverage. I am definitely going to be picking up one or two of the Jouer lipsticks.

    I would love to see another Get Ready With Me type video from you soon!
