REVIEW: Jouer Cosmetics Moisturizing Lip Gloss in "Malibu"

Wow. It's been MONTHS since I've last posted anything! My life is school, and school is my life right now and for the next year or so. I don't expect things to slow down any time soon, but I do want to get myself into the habit of blogging or vlogging again at least once a week or so. I truly miss it!!!

Today's post is a review on a brand that I am not too familiar with called Jouer Cosmetics. I've heard about this brand here and there, but I never got myself to try anything out until a few months ago when I picked up their lip glosses from Nordstrom online.

Jouer's Moisturizing Lip Gloss ($22) in "Malibu" appears hot pink in the tube. These lip glosses are sheer and contain shea butter, jojoba seed oil and vitamin E with purposes to hydrate the lips all while keeping the lips smooth and shiny.

Malibu is such a summer shade! I know it just turned spring, but I'm from southern California where it's going to be 90 degrees in a few days, so bare with me!

This gloss, and I'm going to make the assumption that all their other glosses, are extremely sheer, just like what is described on their website. No glitter, nada.

These are my natural lips. You can see I have pink coloration to my lips. (with flash)

With the gloss on my lips look MEGA plumped compared to my natural lips! You can also see that my lips appear quite shiny, and the gloss gave my lips a little more color. (with flash)

My lips with the gloss on without flash. I like the hint of color! It appears extremely bright in the tube, but this color doesn't transfer like that on the lips. It's definitely wearable during the spring!

 PROS:
  • Hydrating - Strangely enough I feel as if this gloss is indeed moisturizing. I like that my lips feel smooth. This is quite a surprise!
  • Sheerness -  I typically go for very opaque glosses, but this one is very sheer. I like this for a change because this gloss brightens up my face when I'm having one of those lazy days where I don't want to wear lipstick or anything that will bring direct attention to my face. It's one of those lip glosses.
  • Formula -  Non-sticky glosses are the best kind of glosses, but with that said, expect to reapply after eating, drinking, etc. However, even when I eat or drink with this gloss on, my lips still feel hydrated!

CONS:
  • Cost - $22 for a sheer lip gloss? I'm not sure if you would want to pay that much. I fortunately got this in a limited edition set, but it might be worth it if you're looking for a gloss that is very hydrating for your lips. 

Despite the cost for this Moisturizing Lip Gloss, I like it, and I would invest in another one if there was a sale or set available. :)
