I purchased the Jouer Lip Crème in the shade blush back in December and I feel like I’ve used it enough now to form an opinion on it. I mainly purchased it so that I could pair it with one of Jouer’s Lip Toppers but I have worn this on it’s own quite a few times now. The Jouer Lip Crème promises to be lightweight and keep your lips feeling conditioned with it’s vitamin E infused formula.
First off, I have to say I’m a bit put off by the odd shape of this product. I normally love square products. As a beauty blogger I love any product that doesn’t try to roll away while being photographed, however these have a strange indent that I can’t figure out what the use of it is. It almost looks like the lipsticks could click together?
The formula is very moussey and reminds me of the Tarte Lip Paints. They have a delicious vanilla smell that just feels nostalgic to me for some reason. I find the applicator to be quite standard so I haven’t had any issues using it.
Now as for how it wore on the lips… it definitely settles into the lip lines but looks passable when first applied. With time it seems to settle even more dramatically into the lip lines and flakes off throughout the day. I looked in the mirror after wearing it all morning and was a bit shocked by how awful my lips looked up close. I discovered lip lines that I didn’t even know I had! It’s a shame because I really like the colour. I’d probably still wear it for short outings since it does initially look good and takes some time to start settling, but I don’t think I’d wear it for any extended periods of time.
Overall… I would not purchase another Jouer Lip Crème. I’m so disappointed, I was so excited when I saw Sephora was carrying Jouer! But they can’t all be winners.
