If you're blemish-prone, wearing foundation or tinted moisturizer can raise a bevy of questions. Will it break you out? Will it make your skin look greasy? And will you look like you're wearing a mask? For the following three tinted moisturizers, the answer to those questions is no. Plus, each one gives skin a pretty, I-just-happen-to-have-gorgeous-skin glow. For the rundown, keep reading.
If you're wondering where Jouer Cosmetics has been for the last year or so, Christina Zilber (the creator and CEO) has been on hiatus working on new products, marketing deals, and brand-new packaging. But the brand is back with the release of the new Fall Luxury collection. Not only does it include new colors in each of the major makeup categories, but it's also going to be available for purchase this Thursday at Bendel's — a sure sign that the revamp has impressed someone besides me!
The items ($18–$32) include new lip glosses, lipsticks, lipliners, mineral blushes, mineral powder bronzer, lip and cheek tints, cream and powder eye shadows, eyeliners, cream foundation, tinted moisturizers, eye brighteners, concealers, and a mineral powder. (Whew!) As before, most of the new face items are also multipurpose. The star product is a tinted moisturizer that's oil-free, it contains micro-mini shimmer particles and SPF 20. I love the soft glowy veil that it creates on my face and I appreciate that it absorbs quickly and blends easily.
The new packaging has gone from all white to chocolate brown, and although it's more elegant, their signature compacts that click together to create custom palettes are still present. To see the luminizer and a few additional products, read more
Mother's Day is this Sunday, May 13, so all week I'll be bringing you lots of beautiful ideas as part of BellaSugar's Mother's Day gift guide! Today, I've discovered a great gift for mom from Jouer Cosmetics, a brand I love for a number of reasons. For one, Jouer makes a great natural-looking, non-sticky, and non-greasy product that can be effortlessly applied with your fingertips. Also, the makeup comes in these cool small white cases that snap together in the back for easy stack-ability and storage. You can even slide em' together on the sides to create a palette.
A couple of days ago, Jouer released a limited-edition Pretty In Pink Kit ($32), which is perfect as a Mother's Day gift for moms on the run. The kit will be available until June 30th. It includes:
- A rose-colored cheek, eye, and lip tint called Petal All Over color
- A super-sheer and lightweight Pink Sand Lip Gloss
- A compact Noir Conditioning Mascara, which also slides onto the rest of your palette
The best part is that you can add on the rest of Mom's favorite colors as gifts throughout the year.
Welcome to part three of a five part series on Spring lip glosses! To see parts I and II, for violet and berry glosses, click here. Corals, bright oranges and racy rust tones are a hot beauty trend that have been seen on the runways and all over the cosmetics counters for Spring! Here are three of my favorite cool coral lip glosses:
Coral Lip Gloss by Jouer Cosmetics $18, is an ultra sheer soft shade of coral. This color would look great with a tan! The gloss is silky, high in shine and it lasts long on your lips. I love the texture of this gloss because it's not sticky whatsoever!

The idea behind Jouer Cosmetics, (pronounced joo-ay) is that every woman should be able to customize her own palette. Each of the colors are sold separately, but can click together sideways and back-to-back to collaborate your favorite colors du jour.
You can put together eight colors for a vacation or you can snap just two together for a night out. Jouer in french, appropriately means "to play" and this is exactly what founder and ex model Christina Zilber had in mind when creating this design.
As a jet setter who is always on the run, Christina wanted to create something that could be tailored to specific occasions so she didn't always have to schlep around her bulky makeup bag all of the time. She decided to team up with celebrity makeup artist and pal Kerry Malouf to concoct Jouer.
The line includes: lip glosses, cream and powder eye shadows, mascara, brow fix, sheer all over face colors, concealers, highlighters, bronzers, a lip enhancer and an essential matte touch anti-shine treatment. There are also several fun and inventive kits as well as a super cute pink suede cosmetic bag.
Prices range from $10 for brow fix, to $24 for an essential matte touch. Their website also has a pretty fresh Create Your Look, feature that allows you to click on colors and models to build your own virtual look. Read about more new makeup alerts here.
