Jouer Cosmetics

We've been experimenting with a new set of makeup this week: Jouer. It's described as a luxury line, the price point is about the same as Bobbi Brown as is its intention-- to enhance a woman's natural beauty. We found soft shimmering pinks, taupes, and light browns.

What sets this collection apart is its unique packaging that clicks together, like legos for women, and allows you to customize your own palette. For daily use, we would snap the full set together (face perfector, blush, eyeshadows, lip gloss, and even mascara); but at night, we would scale down to blush and gloss. The products that stand out are the powder eye shadow in pink champagne which has a silky texture that can be used wet or dry; the gloss, which we tried in sunset, is moisturizing and not sticky at all (a major peeve of ours); and the face perfector adds nice light coverage and is great if you're on the go and need to touch up.

Jouer was launched a few years ago, but redesigned this summer, and is now available at Henri Bendel stores and Jouer on-line.

Since we're still on the lookout for gifties for our friends: the Jouer Holiday 08 Set is perfect. It includes the Julie lipstick (goldish pink), Glace lipgloss (champagne), and a metallic pouch, all for $35.
