Beauty Review: Jouer Matte Moisture Tint

Hi everyone! 
Monday is here again, and fortunately I got a good enough sleep despite of my camping trip. It was very short, yet so much fun! I had a short hike and enjoyed the outdoor. It was really refreshing to take a break from all the business between work and studying. 

I first heard about Jouer foundation from Ingrid (missglamorazzi). The packaging looks a lot like Laura Mercier silk creme foundation, which I truly like. The product isn't technically called a foundation, it's called a moisture tint. I didn't pay attention when I ordered it online. I ordered it from nordstrom and picked my shade also online. It was a bet, actually. I've never swatched it before, so I relied solely on the pictures. Nordstrom's free return shipping gave me the confidence to do this, although I wouldn't recommend you to do this ever so often. I just didn't have time to go to the mall, and I really wanted to try this out and see what the fuss was all about.

I tried it on Friday night, and I instantly fell in love!  When I realized it was a "moisture tint", I thought I wouldn't like it, but man was I wrong. I couldn't wait to share all about it with you guys, but I was so limited on time and didn't have a chance to do it. I specifically used this product so I can share pictures and rave about it!

Jouer Matte Moisture Tint - nude

The consistency is very light. It's not as thick as foundations I typically use. I can barely feel I use anything on my face. It's so lightweight, and it feels more like a moisturizer. 

It doesn't clump like thick foundation would typically do if you don't have dry patches. It glides smoothly and blends effortlessly.  It doesn't feel heavy at all.

If you have major discoloration, you cannot rely on this alone. You'll still need a concealer to cover it up. I guess this product wasn't designed as full-coverage foundation. It acts more to even out your skin tone. I have a little bit of acne scaring on my left cheek as you can see in the picture. This disguises it a little bit, but doesn't cover it completely. 

Man oh man, this is the best part of the product. I honestly couldn't stop looking myself at the mirror. This claims to be a matte product, but I don't find it drying at all. It does have a matte finish, but it's more like a powdery/dove finish if you know what I mean. I don't feel the need to powder after applying this, but I still do it anyway just because. 

Product featured:

  • Jouer Matte Moisture tint - nude
  • Laura Geller it's a real deal! concealer - medium
  • NYX Stay Matte, not flat powder foudnation - warm beige
  • Rimmel matte brozer - sun light
  • NYX blush - pinched

I totally recommend this product for everyone, especially for those who are new to makeup. Don't get me wrong, it works wonder for me, but I can see this to be a good transitional product for newbies compared to directly go for a heavy coverage foundation. 

Have you tried this? What do you think?
