Limited edition collections are a once in a lifetime opportunity, one that you more than likely do not want to miss. So who wants a review three weeks after it’s release when it’s no longer available? No one, that’s who. After all, we often find some of our favourite products in limited editions and once they’re gone, it’s very unlikely they will return in your makeup drawer.
The new Mermaid collection from Jouer is an opportunity that you do not want to miss; more specifically the Mermaid Glow Palette. If the name isn’t enough to get your blood pumping, then hopefully a first impression will!
Over here in the UK, Jouer cosmetics are not the easiest to get our hands on without spending a ridiculous amount on shipping. Luckily, Cult Beauty saved us and made Jouer cosmetics available at our fingertips with affordable P&P! However, when the Mermaid Collection was released on the website on May 25th, it sold out almost instantly. Do not fear, Cult Beauty are makeup hero’s and got the entire collection back up on sale in a matter of days, but this will not last forever (limited edition remember)!
Highlight and glow is the big thing in the beauty world right now, everyone wants to get their hands on the latest highlighter; and who can blame them!? So a Mermaid Glow palette, in theory should be extremely popular, I mean, who doesn’t want to glow like a mermaid? Am I right, or am I right? But is it all it’s hyped up to be?
(creator of Jouer) designed the brand with the idea that makeup should be effortless and should simply enhance a woman’s natural features. All of Jouer’s products are enriched with skin benefits and conditioning that help with the application of the product. This can certainly be seen with the Mermaid Glow Palette. If you’re looking for a glam highlight that can be seen a mile off, then this product may not quite be for you. However, if you’re looking for an elegant glow that makes your skin look healthy and radiant, then dip into your purse and buy this product! This does not mean however that the product is not buildable, because it certainly is! Place the different shades on top of each other and you can easily create a glam look.
Despite the palette consisting of pinks, purples and golds, there is nothing dramatic about this product. The creamy texture allows the product to transfer onto the skin with a sheer consistency, leaving a simple radiance and glow rather than a dramatic highlight.
Without sounding too cliché, imagine the reflection of a mermaid’s tail while the sun is beaming onto it… that’s the reflection and glow that you get with this product. Perfect for summer and definite must have in your suitcase! Oh and did I mention that it’s staying power is incredible? After a long day, when the rest of my makeup is virtually non-existent, are my cheekbones still glowing? Yes, yes they are.
Luckily for us, Jouer were not entirely cruel in making the entire palette limited edition. Out of the five shades in the palette, three (Camellia, Tiare and Champagne) are in their permanent collection. However, chances are, Seashell and Crystal will be your favourites and you may not be able to get your hands on them again!
So head over to Cult Beauty here and make an investment into the glow palette for £35.00!
