Isn't this the most beautiful liquid lipstick that you've ever laid eyes on? When I saw a Cult Beauty advert on Facebook advertising the new fall collection from Jouer, I knew I had to get my hands on Snapdragon, a totally unique colour to anything I'd usually go for. I'm a magpie, I really am - if it sparkles, it has my attention. And I haven't taken my attention off this lipstick since it arrived at my door.
I've never tried any products from Jouer before, but I have to say that after trying Snapdragon out (hella cute name by the way), I'm definitely on board with the brand. I like that the shades of these lipsticks are different to any that I've seen before; this particular shade is described as a 'metallic cool frosty plum', which does sound like the loveliest shade for a winter party, and I know that I'll never find another shade quite like it. As you can see from the photos, the lipstick looks very glittery in the bottle, but once you apply it to your lips it just has the most gorgeous metallic effect that looks bold, especially with a softer eye look. The colour looks extremely similar in the tube and on the lips, which is always a bonus when you order online and can't swatch the product in store. 
For £15, I think you get what you pay for - I can't believe that a product as luxurious as this costs less than a MAC lipstick, because the packaging makes the Jouer products look way more expensive than they're actually priced at. Plus, when I ordered from Cult Beauty I managed to find a code online to give me free delivery, so I skipped delivery charges (always a bonus, paying delivery is literally the bane of my existence.) I wasn't aware of this before I ordered it, but the lipstick bottles can actually slot together, to keep all your Jouer liquid lipsticks in the same place. Nifty trick right there. 
As for the actual formula, I'm completely in love. I always tend to put a thin layer of lip balm underneath any lip product, just as a safety net for dry lips, although with this product I'm not sue that the safety net is needed. Its a more comfortable liquid lipstick, and believe me when I say that the colour will not budge unless you want it to. The pigmentation is lovely; I did end up putting two layers on for this lip swatch, just so you could really see the colour, whereas in reality I would probably just stick to one. All in all I think this product is absolutely dreamy, and Jouer have hit it out of the park with their shade range - loads of unique shades that you couldn't find anywhere else. Their new fall collection also has a peachy nude, a brick red and a dusty mauve, but if I purchased again I'd go for 'Citronade Rose' from their original collection, described as a 'metallic ballet pink'. *sighs*
Have you ever tried a Jouer lip cream, and do you like the look of their fall collection?


  1. I haven't tried any Jouer products, but WOW I need to! On my skin tone, any shade has to have somewhat of a purple-ly undertone to it, and this, well, this IS purple, haha. Not the biggest fan of metallic lippies, but this looks great on you. Loved the review :)
