Long time no review! Lately I’ve been wanting to branch out in trying out makeup from local and indie brands that I haven’t heard about before. I got tired of everyone buying the same mainstream makeup from Sephora and I wanted to try something new. I heard about Jouer Cosmetics (based in Los Angeles) from a fellow beauty blogger <3 and their Springtime In Paris palette definitely caught my eye!
This palette is a light pink hard cover case with gold flakes of flower petals on the front. Too cute. On the back, list all the names of the shades. I wished the names of the shades were shown inside the palette instead of the back but that’s okay. This quality of this mirror is AWESOME and SOO CLEAR.
12 eyeshadows for $40, basically $3.33 for each eyeshadow. I bought this palette for $34 with 15% with the code, SEREIN15
A warm matte creamy vanilla shade. It’s a good shade for highlight your brow bone but it’s not as pigmented unless you pack it on.
A cool matte ballet pink shade. Not my favorite shade. Again, not pigmented unless you pack it on.
Cool matte mauve shade. A purpley-brown color that I can work with and it does look pretty when blended.
Cool matte deep eggpplant. Looks like Mauve but darker lol
A warm metallic gold shade. It looks soo beautiful in the palette but again, definitely gotta pack this on a couple of times or wet it with a setting spray for it to really pop.
A warm matte light brown shade. LOVE IT. Hands down, my favorite transition shade to use.
A cool metallic blue shade. My first blue shade that I own so I’m pretty excited to use this one and see how it turns out.
A warm metallic burgundy shade. UGH this color is soo beautiful and pigmented.
A warm metallic chestnut shade. Super pigmented and I love the shimmers in it.
A deep matte ash brown shade. I thought this was interesting. I never owned an ash brown eyeshadow before.
A warm satin purple shade. AGAIN, LOVE. Soo pretty and perfect for a spring time look if you want a lil pop of color on your eyes!
A cool matte graphite blue shade. Again, I thought this was interesting. It looks like Ash Brown to me but just darker.
My Overall Impression:
This is an okay palette for me. I don’t love it as much as my ABH Modern Renaissance Palette but it’s not a bad palette either. I bought this palette because I wanted to try to use more colorful eyeshadows that’s subtle. Some shades in here such as Creme and Petal aren’t as pigmented as I wished. Mauve and Aubergine + Ash Brown and Slate looks similar in color, it’s just that one looks darker than the other. They’re not bad shades but I wished they were more different. I love the metallic shades on here the most. The texture is easy to blend and the colors are beautiful. I just wished some color shades didn’t look similar to one another. Overall it’s not a bad palette, but an okay one.
Let me know in the comments if you tried anything from Jouer Cosmetics before or any other Indie brands that I should try out! <3 xoxo
