Thoughts and Swatches: The Jouer Fall 2016 Collection and New Sisley-Paris Sisleÿa Le Teint Foundation


The Jouer Fall 2016 Collection.
This post is dedicated to two stunningly beautiful new launches: the Jouer Fall 2016 Collection and the new Sisley-Paris Sisleÿa Le Teint Foundation. Possessing a particular weakness for lip color and foundation, you can imagine my delight in reviewing these particular releases.  Also, I am excited to invite you to a Beauty Professor event taking place this Saturday 9/17 in the Los Angeles area...all the specifics are at the end of this post!

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the products in action as well as the Bottom Line...

Jouer Powder Highlighters.
Up first, the *Jouer Powder Highlighters (also available at Jouer) are a trio of skin illuminating wonders.  Although their moniker clearly designates it a powder, the formula is so finely milled that it feels almost like a cream upon application. It buffs into the skin instantly and blends like a dream for an ethereal glow that comes in three face-flattering shades:
  • Citrine: Shimmering gold
  • Rose Quartz: Shimmering champagne pink
  • Topaz: Shimmering rose gold

Ultra-fine pearls and luminescent pigments create the ultimate, "lit-from-within" glow. This creamy, powder formula is long-wearing, highly pigmented, and layers with our best-selling cream Highlighter for the perfect radiant finish. 

Ingredients"MICA, ETHYLHEXYL PALMITATE, ZINC STEARATE, SILICA, DIMETHICONE, ALUMINUM CALCIUM SODIUM SILICATE, CALCIUM SODIUM BOROSILICATE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, HEXYLENE GLYCOL, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, PHENOXYETHANOL, TIN OXIDE. MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR [+/-: TITANIUM DIOXIDE (CI 77891), IRON OXIDE (CI 77499)]. "

Next, the *Jouer Fall 2016 Long Wear Lip Creme (also available at Jouer) features 10 new shades in what is already an impressive line up of hues (last collection reviewed HERE).  The formula is truly one of the best non-drying full coverage matte options on the market; with a velvety finish that ranges from pure creamy matte to luminous metallic, lips are draped in color saturated pigmented with significant lasting power.  

A few standout shades for me include the neutral Terra, pinky nude Tawny Rose, incandescent Lip Topper in Tan Lines and impossibly yet entirely wearable Dahlia...although I have swatches of all 11 of the new launches, the images at the end of this post feature a close up the four I just mentioned. 

A rainbow of color.

Meet Sisleÿa Le Teint. 
Finally, *The NEW Sisleÿa Le Teint (also available Sisley-Paris) is a buildable foundation formula, brimming with a host of anti-aging skincare benefits that help to improve skin from the outside in and inside out. 

Although only recently launched, I have had the luxury of experimenting with this foundation for the past couple of months and am captivated by the bouncy, nourishing texture and natural coverage of the formula. It feels weightless when applied and lasts 7-8 hours, even in warm weather...magnifique!

With a subtle herbal fragrance (that dissipates in seconds on my skin) and a customizable level of coverage (from light all the way to nearly full), this foundation is an unequivocal boon for those seeking the lastest innovations in skin perfection. 

All eight shades. 
Official details, courtesy of Sisley-Paris:

Sisleÿa Le Teint is a truly complete anti-aging fluid foundation. It provides a youthful effect make-up, instantly and throughout the day: 

- the complexion is radiant (complex of 2 Micas and ultra-pure pigments), 
- the skin is smooth (unique smoothing base), 
- make-up stays perfect for 8 hours (Sisley Color Expert technology). 

Its skin care formula combines many powerful anti-aging ingredients based on the latest Sisley research. Most notably, it is formulated with Persian Acacia extract, a key ingredient of Sisleÿa L'Intégral Anti-Age, for cellular energy*, a source of radiance. The skin is more luminous and even--instantly and with continued usage. Signs of fatigue are minimized. In 4 weeks, the face appears smoother and more firm. The appearance of wrinkles is diminished. Skin is moisturized, plumped and firmer. 

Active Ingredients:

  • Persian Acacia extract: cellular energy
  • Chlorella extract: revitalizes
  • Red Vine extract: tones
  • Soy peptide extract: combats loss of firmness
  • Adenosine: anti-wrinkle properties
  • White Willow extract: anti-oxidant*, anti-collagenase* and anti-elastase* properties
  • Vitamin E Acetate: Anti-free radical properties
  • Cherry Blossom extract: moisturizes
  • Wheat Sugar derivative: promotes the retention of water in the stratum corneum.
