|Jouer Cheek & Lip Tint in Honeysuckle. (£16)|
The first thing that struck me when I opened the parcel is how small these blushes are, which is something I actually quite like because they're so easy to store or pop into a make up bag, although it can be slightly disheartening to look at it and think, wow this tiny little pot costs £16. The packaging is lovely though, it's sturdy, sleek & I love that there's the option to attach it to other Jouer products to create your own custom palette - this is an undeniably fantastic marketing idea because it really is making me want to own more Jouer products just so I can slide them on to this one. I'm really tempted to get one of the more pink shades because, well, I just prefer wearing pinks, but I'm trying to be sensible.
The blush itself is beautiful too. The consistency is smooth, it's so easy to apply and blend and it's pigmented without being crazy-over-the-top. It's one of those blushes I can apply when I'm half asleep in the morning and I won't leave the house looking like I've just dipped my face in make up and hoped for the best. It lasts really well on my normal/dry skin, I don't find myself having to reapply throughout the day unless it's a really long day or I've found myself caught in a rain storm, which seems to be happening more often than I would like at the moment...
Are these my favourite cream blushes? It's a tough one - I do think that Illamasqua cream blushes and the Stila Convertible colours slightly pip the Jouer to the post but only ever so slightly, I love them all almost equally. Illamasqua have some really beautiful, slightly unexpected but still wearable shades, Stila offers my favourite ever neutral cream blush in Gerbera and Jouer has a whole range of beautiful colours that look natural and compliment skin tones perfectly.
Have you tried anything from Jouer before?
