review jouer lipsticks best lip creams


I think its fair to say almost every makeup junkie is well and truly on board the liquid lipstick train and there's really no need for me to repeat how obsessed I am with them right now. And when these cuboid tubes of lip colour goodness started appearing on my Instagram feed, I knew I wouldn't be able to resist for too long. 


Jouer Cosmetics Long-Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipstick | £14


Known for their unique and clever click-lock packaging, that allows you to create any combination of 'palettes' with their products, I love everything I have tried by Jouer previously.

PACKAGING

I'd be lying if I said I didn't buy these just because of the super cute packaging because, really and truly, that was the main reason. Haha! It's quirky but dinky, compact, tiny and cute which fits perfectly with the brand and their existing line of products.

It comes with a standard doe-foot applicator which isn't too hard or too flimsy to use, allowing a decent amount of control while picking up enough product too. Because the formula is more cream than liquid, it isn't too messy either.

These lip creams also have the ridges that allow them to be linked and joined onto other Jouer products, which just adds to the cuteness if you ask me.


PRODUCT

You get a decent 6ml of product in each of these which is really quite great for the price and considering this is a higher-end brand. When compared to the legendary Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick, which only contains 3ml for £16, you can really appreciate what good value you are getting with these.

They smell sweet, like vanilla and candyfloss and I love the beautiful, delicious names of each shade.


SHADES


Jouer have done a great job of selecting some really appealing, wearable shades from nudes, to pinks, brights and reds. Interestingly this line-up also includes some stunning metallic finish options that I don't see myself running out to get anytime soon but they look incredible.

I love the look of a lot of the shades and picked up the 2 that I wanted to try the most to begin with and 2 that weren't almost identical to one another:

  • Noisette (matte warm chocolate brown) - a beautiful medium brown that isn't too orange or too peachy or too grey. This only needs one layer for opaque colour and applies really well.
  • Petale De Rose (matte cool deep rose) - a pretty dusky rose shade. This takes two layers for opaque colour where my lips are darkest and can be streaky.

I really like both shades, though I do wish Petale De Rose had a touch of mauve about it as it can come off a little bright, but that's just my personal preference. I am surprised how much I actually like Noisette, considering I'm not a huge fan of brown lip colours. Mixed together, I get a stunning nude shade that really suits my complexion.

I hope to pick up Lychee, Dulce De Leche, Cassis and Melon in the future.

FORMULA, LONGEVITY & PERFORMANCE

These are a creamier formula than some other liquid lipsticks I have tried but dry matte and are long-lasting just like you would expect from the more fluid formulas. They remind me of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams although those are much less pigmented and nowhere near as long-lasting on my lips.

The colour lasts on my lips around 3-4 hours, with a little bit of flaking and cracking and I do find the centre part of my lips to lose the colour a lot sooner. As expected, after eating I need to reapply these and the good thing about this formula is that you can add layers on top of another without causing any distress, which is not the experience I've had with many other liquid lipsticks. 

They are drying on the lips but not more so than any other liquid lipstick and definitely benefit from a balm used on the lips for a while before application. And of course, like any other formula, if you have plump lips to begin with, this formula will be much more flattering than if you already have lines and wrinkles on your lips. Luckily though, this doesn't exaggerate and accentuate any lines you naturally have or shink the lips the way NYX Lip Lingerie Lipsticks do.

It is quite a comfortable formula and only begins to get a little annoying on the lips as the hours wear on. It dries properly too allowing you to purse your lips together without too much stickiness.

My only criticism would be that they could be a lot more pigmented and little more long-lasting.


jouer cosmetics review


In all honesty, initially I was quite disappointed with these. This is mainly as I had built them up in my mind to be the ultimate liquid lipstick formula: offering amazing pigmentation, plumping and moisturising action while being long-lasting and super dinky and cute too.

But really, they're nothing extraordinary. They are lovely and I feel like I am enjoying using them more now that I have banished the random expectations from my mind about them. They do the job without blowing my mind.

I think they're great value for money and there is definitely a shade or two there for everyone.

  2. I'm glad I read your review before purchasing these as, like you, I was expecting them to be the ultimate liquid lipstick. These are gorgeous shades though :)
    You should try the Satin Lip from Colourpop, Sal, they're so good! I'm wearing one right now, just had my breakfast, I'm having coffee and the lipstick looks perfect, juts the very inner centre of my lips worn off slightly and they are super pigmented, smoothes over lip lines without accentuating them and very comfortable! :) xx

    1. You still need to try these hun...I feel like they're great at being what they are without being extraordinary if you know what I mean ;) Awwww I know...I'm doing a rubbish job at saving up for another ColourPop haul but I know I'm going to love that formula. It sounds incredible....Thanks! xxx

  8. A great review, I love that you compared them to other formulas. I have yet to try a lot of liquid lipstick formulas. I like the formula of the Soft Matte lip creams. These sound great though, so many nice colours too, thanks for sharing!

  9. That's so cool that they have that interlocking thingie so you can attach it to other jouer products. I absolutely love both colors you picked, I would probably pick the same :D 4 hours of wear time isn't too bad! Tbh I never last that long without reapplying anyways since I always seem to be eating something or sipping on water every hour or two lol.

  10. I love the packaging of these! I'm not a huge matte lip or liquid lipstick wearer so these aren't on my radar but I definitely want to try something from Jouer at some point!

  11. The shades are gorgeous! Thank you for your honesty though as these are getting SO hyped up right now it's nice to read a more balanced review. I may still check them out but it's annoying they aren't long-lasting as that's kind of the point of liquid lipsticks haha xx

  13. Great review as per usual! Your writing style is excellently perfect mA! Witty and to the point! Keep em coming Hun, keep em comin'!!! There's something that I really like about the SMLC formula, they seem to work well with my lips and have a pretty finish unlike the NYX Lingerie lippies. So these sound wonderful and Noisette looks like a lovely wearable brown for our skin tone! Not sure I wanna jump on the brown lipstick bandwagon just yet eek! Xxx

    1. Hehehehehe! I know what you mean about the brown lip trend...though this is actually one of the few shades that would help to ease you in. Its so balanced. Awww if you love those, then you will really love these. These are just the amped up version. ;) You're too kind my love, too kind xxx

  16. I love the look of both shades but I think I would be disappointed to spend £14 each on them. I would rather buy the NYX Matte Lip Creams - I know they don't last as long but as they are cheaper I wouldn't mind having to reapply so often! x
