Fall 2015 Jouer Le Matchbox Review


  
My Fall Jouer Le Matchbox is finally here! There was a shipping mishap in which it was sent to my billing address in CA but luckily I was heading there anyway, so I only got the box about a week later than I should have. Once again I am blown away by the value of the box (this box is valued at $108, and I paid $45 since I have a recurring subscription) and quality of the products! We received three full size makeup products and one sample size. The full size items are the new Kitten Liner (RV $28), Ready to Wear Warm Palette (RV $45) and Eye Brightening Primer (RV $24). The sample was an adorable Moisturizing Lip Gloss in the color Starfish (RV $11).

First, I received the Kitten liner which is a new release. I know I will love the Kitten Liner as it looks very similar to my HG Stila Eyeliner (read about it here). I love these liquid eyeliner pens as it makes application so easy! I can easily line my eyelid without making a mess of my eyes and can even get creative with a cat eye or thicker liner. The applicator of this appears to be slightly thicker than the Stila so I will have to see which works best for me.

I have to confess I don’t wear eyeshadow primer. I know I should, but it’s an extra step I just don’t have the time or patience for. However, I love anything brightening as I feel my face can never be too bright, so I look forward to trying the Eye Brightening Primer. It contains light-reflecting pigments to illuminate and brighten the eye area which is perfect for me as I have dark circles all around my eyes. I wore it today and my eyeshadow stayed put with no creases all day!

The last full size product I received was another new release, the Ready to Wear Warm Collection which a full face palette designed to take you from day to night. It contains four eyeshadows (two mattes, one shimmering and one sparkling), a bronzer, blush and highlighter. As I mentioned in the last Matchbox review, I have been fascinated by the bronzer, so I’m really excited to have a second one of these in the color Perfect Tan. I’ve only tried one blush from Jouer but I really loved it, so I’m sure this one will be a hit too. The shade Peach Glow is described as a glowing apricot and seems to be a great color for my skin tone. The highlighter is in the color Camellia which is a shimmering pearl white, which I was afraid would be too bright for my color, but it blends wonderfully. I thought the highlighter was a powder but I quickly realized it was a cream when my brush didn’t pick anything up. I love the idea of a cream highlighter as cream products are so easy to blend and I find they always look more natural. Finally, I love the formulation of the shadow and find they blend seamlessly together. I used the top three- Lace, matte beige, all over the lid, Sahara, matte chestnut brown, in the crease for depth and Cognac, shimmering chocolate, on the outer corners for a bit more color. This combination is beautiful and perfect for daytime wear. For nighttime, I will add more of the Cognac to make it darker and Fireside, deep sparkling brown along my lash line.

In addition to the above full size products, the box included a sample of the Lip Gloss. I’m not a fan of lip glosses (unless it’s this one- my new favorite!), so I will probably gift this/add it as a stocking stuffer for my sister.

And finally, everyone received a reusable tote with a gold phrase and #jouergirl. Mine says “beyoutiful”, and it is by far my favorite of the variations I’ve seen. I love tote bags for quick overnight trips or grocery shopping, so this cute one will get a lot of use!

Once again I am so happy with this box. I was looking through my current makeup selections and the majority of it is Jouer. I definitely fallen in love with this brand and love this subscription to get more products!
