Jouer's irresistibly sheer shades (marketing blurb - read the word "sheer" literally here) are loaded with vitamins A, C, and E; shea butter; jojoba oil; and pomegranate seed oil to moisturize, soothe, nourish, rejuvenate, and protect for smooth and hydrated lips. They do feel great on my lips.
Jouer Lip Glosses are available in a the Jouer signature vial that connects to any Jouer custom palette. I don't connect them to anything, so I'd appreciate a slightly longer top, but that's a small detail. The colors are beautiful.
Jouer had a 24-hour flash sale after the Battle of the Coasts and offered the winner, Malibu, at a 40% discount. It was time for me to see both finalists in person.
Malibu suffers from the sheer disappearing act. It looks vibrant in the tube (like some Chanel glosses) and sheer and almost colorless on the lips. I was disappointed in it. Sheer is one thing; almost clear is another. Fortunately, Hamptons has some color - not a lot, but enough for my satisfaction index.
Wind last month? It provides more color than either one of these shades.
You can purchase Jouer Moisturizing Lip Glosses at at the Jouer Web site, where I purchased these two, or at Nordstrom, where I have purchased Jouer in the past. The line is also available at Henri Bendel.
Totally unrelated: I have to tell someone how thrilled I am that DC's female panda, Mei Xiang, gave birth to a cub over the weekend. I tried watching the pandacam, but she's cuddling the little guy too close, taking great care of him, the National Zoo reports. Yippee!
