Jouer's Pearl Lip Enhancer ($16) is a nourishing and conditioning lip treatment with clinically-proven "Maxi Lip," which is designed to increase the fullness of the lips while decreasing fine lines. It offers a hint of pearly, shimmering color with each application. With its botanical ingredients, this ultra-rich lip moisturizer helps protect the lips from environmental damage. Plus it feels great on the lips.
I selected Rose, described as a shimmering rose peal, when I was shopping during Jouer's Friends & Family Sale. It's only available in three shades: rose, peach, and nude. The shade names are descriptive and definitely devoid of all of the descriptors we usually see, for example, "Beach-worthy Rose" or "Relentless Rose."
As you can see from the photos, it is packaged in a tube, which is perfect for this type of lip color - just like Tom Ford's Lip Lacquer. but a lot less expensive.
I was delighted when I tried Rose. I took swatch photos in full, late-afternoon sun, applying the color directly from the tube. I was instantly delighted with the shimmer and color. This lip color definitely shines with a pearlescent luster.
It has the same effect on the lips as the Pink Lust Lip Lacquer - a little frosty, but with plenty of color to make complement your lips.
I love the way it glows on my lips. It sings summer. As I look back on that 30% discount, I wish I had ordered all three shades.
