Product Review: Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss

By Glinda

Someone who knows me well gifted me with a three-month Birchbox subscription, and I just received my first box two days ago.   I’m a little too new to the whole Birchbox thing to pronounce judgement upon it yet, but I’ll be sure to do so when my subscription is up.

One of the products inside was Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss  in a bright fuchsia.   Not my normal go-to color, but I know that what the product looks like in the packaging doesn’t necessarily translate to what it looks like on your skin.  This would be one of those times.

It went on without any real tackiness (which I LOATHE in a lip gloss) but not in a way that I would call slick, either.  It was surprisingly thick in texture.  It had a fair amount of shine, and not a whole lot of color.   Even with the brightness, it barely made a color impact on my lips.   It was impressively shiny, so I suppose if you wanted a medium amount of color and a lot of shine, two coats might do the trick.

The size of the gloss was actually minuscule, almost like it belonged on a charm bracelet, which is fairly insulting because it isn’t like I was getting the product for free.  I’ve been given much bigger samples at the beauty counter and not had to pay a cent.

So, given the lack of color and the decision to provide such a small sample, I don’t think I will be purchasing this gloss any time soon.

    Everything I’m hearing about the Birchbox is a little disappointing, especially since the samples seem to be so chintzy and the products are either nonsensical or strangely unpleasant to use. I think, for $10 or so a month or whatever the fee is, you could probably receive or buy decent samples of stuff you actually want elsewhere.

    I had the Canadian equivalent of the Birchbox, the Gymm box, for about 4 months. I really liked it – I found the sample sizes to be generous. For most things it seemed liked I was getting the actual product! Mostly for lip balms and lipsticks, although I got a full size smudge pot (eyeliner) and brow gel. That brow gel nearly changed my life – I look so much more put together with just that on! The shampoo samples were more like what you would get out of a magazine though. Anyway, it was nice but after 4 months I felt like I had gotten one of everything and I wasn’t really looking forward to it anymore so I stopped my subscription :o)
