Liquid lipsticks have become all the rage recently with brands releasing new formulas and colours left, right and centre. A few months back Jouer Cosmetics appeared on my radar and I started seeing more and more hype about their long-wear lip crème liquid lipsticks. Fast forward a couple of months and I finally bit the bullet and ordered a couple of shades to try out. There are 16 gorgeous shades in the collection including four metallics and twelve mattes. I picked up three shades: Noisette (matt warm chocolate brown), Praline (metallic cool bronzed pink) and Cassis (matt cool muted violet).
The first thing I noticed about these products was the grooves down one side of the packaging. After further research I discovered the ingenious packaging allows you to carry your essentials in a customised unique palette by clicking everything together. The entire range of compacts are mix and match allowing you to attach what you need, when you need it. The liquid lipsticks retail at £14 for 6ml and come in a sleek plastic casing with a simple but stylish design. They have a ‘doe foot’ applicator which has a tapered tip allowing you to precisely apply the product in a smooth, even coat. If you don’t like overly sweet scented lip products then these probably aren’t for you as they smell like the sweetest vanilla frosting. Personally I was delighted when I first gave these a sniff but I know such a sweet scent will not be to everyone’s taste.
The formula of these liquid lipsticks is hands down one of the best I have ever tried. They apply opaquely with one coat leaving a full coverage, highly pigmented, smooth finish. The formula is more of a whipped, mousey formula which is incredibly weightless and leaves the lips super soft and velvety. The shades are incredibly long lasting and so comfortable to wear on the lips – they don’t dry your lips out after a few hours like many other formulas. You can eat, drink and smooch to your heart’s content without having to worry about any transfer as it takes a lot to shift these bad boys. I’ve found the best way to remove is with an oil based cleanser otherwise you could be there for a while.
Overall, I would give these a solid 10/10 and I’ll be keeping an eye out to see if they release new darker and more vampy shades come Autumn/ Winter. For now the gorgeous array of peaches, pinks, nudes and shimmering metallics is suitable for every skin tone and perfect for the warmer months.
