Jouer Highlighter In Champagne

I’m completely new to the beauty brand Jouer despite having heard so much rave about them over the years. Having never owned anything by the brand, naturally I’m thrilled to finally be able to share my thoughts on their Highlighter in the shade Champagne ($22 / 0.07 oz) which is a warm-toned shimmering pink. For those new to this line, the Highlighter collection is a lightweight cream highlighter that is encased in a small mirrored compact and they have 3 color options to choose from ranging from a shimmering pearl white to a shimmering gold. I decided to opt for the Champagne shade since I don’t own a particular color like that in my personal cream highlighter collection. It has a natural glowing sheen that is semi-sheer and has a luminiscent finish that does not look greasy. You can wear this cream highlighter anywhere you’d wear a powder-based highlighter – basically wherever you want/need a bit of glow. I personally love cream highlighters because it makes the complexion look so naturally dewy and radiant, and in the Summer I tend to opt for this type of formula more than a regular powder-based highlighter.

Champagne is the middle shade out of the 3 they have available. Despite its name, the overall color definitely teeters more towards a shimmering pink with warm undertones. The color payoff on my in ~between tans ski~ shows up pretty significantly but not too light or frosty – which, thank god because I have never grown a fondness for frosty anything. I suspect that this particular color would work on a good range of complexions but of course it depends on how fair, medium or deep your skin tone is.

Swatch on the arm:

The formula is soft and super creamy but not so emollient to where it just slides off the face. It glides onto the skin very smoothly and literally only requires a little tapping over the areas where you want a natural glow. On its own the finish has a good luminosity to it but is a little on the sheer side – luckily the product is buildable as it does not emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture. For more color or a highlight that is so fierce it scares all the children in the village, I like to use this as my base color and then apply a powder highlighter atop of it. On me it wore for about 7 hours before the intensity started dimming down. 

This being my first time trying anything from Jouer, I can say that I’m overall very happy with this product and am definitely looking forward to trying more of their selections in the near future. 

Do you have any recommendations for products I can try by Jouer? Leave some suggestions in the notes!
