JOUER Cosmetics Instant Chic Collection

Jouer Instant Chic Set JOUER Cosmetics Instant Chic Collection

I’ve been itching to try Jouer since I first learned of them about a year ago. Once the brand confirmed that they do not test on animals or sell where animal testing is required, I placed an order. Deciding what to try was a no-brainer – I immediately zeroed in on the Instant Chic Collection. The colors and textures – it’s almost like I put this kit together myself. It includes the Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Starfish, Powder Eyeshadow in Peach, Tint in Fawn, and Mineral Powder Bronzer in Suntan.

“For a look that’s chic AND effortless, Jouer has your go-to palette. For all those in-a-pinch moments, I tailored a collection with THE bare basics. It truly captures a style that’s simple, clean, yet always chic.”

- Christina Zilber, Makeup Stylist, Creative Direct & Founder

I believe it was Becca at The Beauty Sample who called Jouer’s packaging an upgraded version of Laura Mercier’s. The dark brown compacts snap or slide together for maximum portability. I personally haven’t been connecting them, but it’s a nice touch and could come in handy when traveling.

The Mineral Powder Bronzer in Suntan is a flattering warm brown. It’s light enough that I can dust it on with a fluffy brush for all-over warmth or build it up to contour. Becca at The Beauty Sample has an in-depth review.

The Tint in Fawn is a gorgeous rosy coral. The silky, creamy texture has surprisingly good pigmentation. It works on cheeks and lips. I’m obsessed with it as a lip color – it’s the perfect warm nude for me, which it’s so impossibly difficult to find.

The Powder Eyeshadow in Peach is a peachy pink with the tiniest bit of golden shimmer. The finish has a satin-y or velvet-y quality, which I absolutely love. It’s a not-flat flattering finish with all the sophistication of a matte.

Jouer Lip Gloss Starfish JOUER Cosmetics Instant Chic Collection

The Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Starfish is a light natural pink with lots and lots of fine gold shimmer. I think this is a shade that would flatter many people. The formula feels lovely on the lips – hydrating, light, and non-sticky. On its own, Starfish gives my lips a subtle yet fresh pinky color and the shimmer lends itself to a healthy, plush-looking finish.

The Instant Chic Collection has been on my vanity in daily use since its arrival. I’m very tempted to pick up another Jouer set. The price is steep, but they’re a great value compared to buying the items separately. And frankly, I’m really just that impressed with these products.

    I’m so happy to hear that Jouer is cruelty-free! I never knew that is it makes me very happy!! Those products are so beautiful and look really good on you :)

    • Catherine

      Hi Kristina! It took a while to get a response directly from Jouer, but I finally did. They also confirmed their status to my friend and fellow cruelty-free beauty blogger Christine at Makeup Matters and have been featured on My Beauty Bunny, which I trust. Thanks so much! ♥

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    You look gorgeous!! So fresh and dewey! I really want to try some of their products as well! I didn’t realize they made kits! That’s great!

    • Catherine

      Thanks so much, Tracy! The kits are a great intro to the brand, I’m really glad I purchased one. I was having trouble deciding on just one product anyway ;)

  • Tiffany

    I love everything you reviewed in this post, Catherine! I’ve been meaning to try out a few more things from Jouer, particularly the tints! These colors suit you so well. Love your necklace too!

    • Catherine

      Thank you, Tiffany! I think these colors would work well for you, too – our coloring isn’t too different. I got the necklace from an Etsy shop: a couple years ago and it’s been one of my most-worn pieces of jewelry since! ♥

  • Kiss & Make-up

    Sounds good! I like the simple, sleek packaging. The face shots look really good, it all looks very glowy and natural.

    • Catherine

      Thank you! Totally agree about the packaging, I’m always drawn to that style. ♥

  • Christine

    Jouer has some products that look really amazing, but I rarely think of them when I’m looking for something new. The Tint looks really beautiful!!! I’ve been wanting to try them for a while. The eye shadow sticks look really nice too. I have a sample size of their gloss and it’s so comfortable! And, of course, I love the Matte Moisture Tint! :)

    • Catherine

      Hi Christine! The tint in this shade… I’m obsessed. I have so much makeup nowadays, it takes more for me to get really excited about a product than it used to, and this… I’m totally excited about haha. I don’t know about the other shades, I want to check them out. ♥

  • Becca @ The Beauty Sample

    Yaaay, so glad you love the set, Catherine! And thank you for the shout out :) Everything looks so beautiful and now I REALLY want that gloss, damn it! :P
