Despite owning a plethora of foundation, I’m actually not a fan of wearing them on a daily basis. I’ve always enjoyed wearing BB cream and tinted moisturisers but having oily skin has meant that I haven’t found a formula that suited my skin… until now.
I heard about Jouer Matte Moisture Tint a few years ago and it’s been at the back of my mind for a while, so I finally decided to purchase it for myself. Unfortunately, if you live in the UK it’s difficult to get your hands on this product. I bought mine online from Cult Beauty and if you live in London you can get it from Blow Beauty Bar in Covent Garden, it costs £30 for a 50ml bottle. In terms of colouring there are just 7 shades to choose from with yellow and pink undertones, I did a lot of research and chose the darkest shade Hazel. For reference I’m a NC 42 – 44 in MAC and Syracuse in Nars.
I like the packaging for this product, it comes in a sleek matte brown, opaque and air-proof tube making it great for travel as it maintains stability of the anti-oxidants/sunscreen in the formula. This formula is oil free, fragrance free, contains Vitamins C and E, antioxidants and also contains SPF 15 (physical sunscreen – 4% Titanium Dioxide, 3% Zinc Oxide), it’s important to note that wearing this alone for sun protection won’t be enough. It is aimed at oily skin and due to the formulation it can be used on sensitive skin too.
I need around a pea size for each side of my face for a light coverage which may be built up. I’ve only ever used my fingers to apply this lightweight product and I find it blends in effortless. The moisturiser covers redness and blemishes whilst evening out skin tone, however it doesn’t completely conceal hyper-pigmentation which I have around my mouth, but I can live with that. It dries to a powdery, matte finish which doesn’t need setting and it actually smooths the texture on my skin. I did notice that if you look really closely at your skin you can see little specs of glitter in it but these are undetectable at a normal distance. If you have any dryness this product will cling to it, so avoid if your skin is so inclined.
I found that this moisturiser kept my oil at bay for a long longer than usual and didn’t fade until around the 6 hour mark. All in all I am SO happy that I decided to give this tinted moisturiser a shot, I’m definitely going to be wearing foundation less as a result of this. It didn’t break me out and looks and feels undetectable on the skin whilst giving me enough coverage and oil control for my work days. My only criticism is that Jouer should come out with more shades as this shade won’t match me when I have a tan, I had to warm it up with bronzer (see below) to really match my skin tone. Also I personally know plenty of darker skin ladies who would LOVE a product like this.
Have you tried this product before? What is your favourite BB cream or tinted moisturiser? Comment below and let me know.
If any of you know me personally you’ll know that I rarely spend a lot of money on clothes or fashion. However, when it comes to make-up, I’ve always been a sucker for high-end products. I’m not sure if it’s the fancy, shiny packaging or what, but I just love expensive make-up! It’s actually become a real issue considering I don’t have unlimited funds *cries*, so I’ve made a wishlist for products I’d like to buy…eventually 🙂
Nars Audacious Lipstick, Rita – I’ve heard so many good things about the formula of the Audacious lipsticks from Nars. I like the look of Rita which is a classic red for the upcoming season.
Charlotte Tilbury, Dolce Vita Luxury Palette – This is the first CT product that I ever layed my eyes on and let me tell you it was love at first sight. This quad has four beautiful, pigmented, warm tone eyeshadows which tend to be the colours I stick with.
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick, Bond Girl – I can’t remember who I saw this lipstick on but it looks absolutely stunning. It’s a brown toned pink colour which you must know by now that I’m obsessed with. Perfect for day-to-day AND it goes with the Dolce Vita quad. I must have.
Jouer Matte Moisture Tint, Hazel – I’ve had my eye on this tinted moisturiser for some time but haven’t taken the plunge to buy it yet. I don’t like wearing foundation day-to-day and most tinted moisturisers aren’t suitable for oily skin. This matte product looks like it might be perfect for me.
Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder – This foundation is meant to be amazingly lightweight and have great coverage. It looks perfect for the upcoming winter months when my skin gets a bit dry.
Armani Eyes To Kill Eyeshadow, #5 Gold Blitz. This eyeshadow looks absolutely stunning in swatches I’ve seen. I love wearing coppery colours on my lids.
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer- I know I mentioned getting this product a while back but I still haven’t got round to it, the reason being that I already have so many concealers already! I still need to see if this product lives up to the hype though.
Tom Ford Nail Lacquer, Mink Brule/ Toasted Sugar – I can’t get over how pretty these nail varnish colours are. I’ve been searching high and low for cheaper dupes but haven’t found any, I think I’m going to have to take the plunge and buy one for myself but I’m not sure which one to get. Suggestions?
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Finish Powder- Again every person who’s used this powder says it adds an amazing finish to your make-up. I have oily skin so a good powder is a must for me.
Dior Diorshow Mascara – I’ve just finished a sample of this mascara and it really makes my lashes look voluminous and long. I’m not a big falsies wearer so this is an amazing replacement.
