Jouer x Jeffree Star

IMG_0368.JPGThe latest Jouer lip topper has been released and it being a colab with Jeffree Star it is everything you would expect from the beauty mogul. The name being sweet tooth, it being the brightest of pink in colour and absolutely loaded with glitter. It really is like tinsel for the mouth!

Retailing at £13.50 every penny from this product goes to the Los Angeles LGBT Centre with neither companies taking a dollar for themselves which is great to see and hopefully sets an example for other brands to follow suit.

Here in the U.K it is available on beauty bay (I love this as you avoid shipping and custom prices but still get a chance to buy the product same time as the U.S) elsewhere I believe it is the jouer website. For the price you are getting 5.9ml / 0.20 fl. oz. of the topper, it being the same size as Jouer’s other toppers such as skinny dip.

What makes this product special? The packaging is different from their previous with a shiny metallic pink for the box, pressed with the Jouer logo, Jeffree’s signature to the front and the Jeffree Star cosmetics logo to the side of the box. The screw top of the product is a new chrome pink again with the Jeffree Star on the top. It is Jouer’s first pink lip topper and Jeffree himself has stated that there is more glitter present in this lip formula then any other in the Jouer line. So this baby is going to make lips shine!!

The box states this can be used on its own or under your favourite lip colour so I will be trying with both. Above I have swatched the colour on its own on my hand, the second is under a nude and the third under a bright just to give an example of the look.

Upon unscrewing the lid the first thing to note is the smell and it is a sweet as candy (my husband referenced me smelling like a pic’n’mix), sniff it too long and you are bound to get a sugar rush. The applicator is fine, easy to use and glide the topper on without making any major mistakes.

The formula is really nice (This is my first Jouer lip topper and I will be getting more) it goes on incredibly easily and is very smooth. It feels very nourishing but not oily or slippy. One of the main things I liked is it is not at all sticky. I dread the feeling of my lips being stuck together when using a gloss or lip topper, but this gave no issues and was very light on the lip.

The colour on its own is very pigmented but subtle enough for day wear provided you don’t mind a bit of glitter.

My favourite look was to use it over a bright coloured liquid lip. Due to the formula being so smooth it really prevented my lips being dried out from the liquid lip underneath. It also held the brightness of the liquid lip colour whilst adding a dramatic shine to my lips. I felt like a my little pony being let free after living a life without rainbows and I loved it!! When adding this to an already bold lip this is drama so I do really think you have to be into that kind of look to fall for this particular topper.

Personally I do rate the product, it makes my lips feel lovely and smooth, it has great colour pay off and adds the extra shine on top of a coloured lip so it is right up my street.

If your a fan of Jeffree and it’s something you’d love to have in your collection snap it up but be prepared to shimmer more then a disco ball.
