Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint: A Review

So the Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint has become a bit of a cult favorite throughout the blogosphere. It has won awards and tons of praise, and obviously I was interested to see what all the fuss was about! Jouer is a brand that is not sold in many stores (and certainly none around me) so I kind of had to do my research and guess as far as a shade was concerned. I chose the second lightest shade, Pearl, which is described by the website as a shimmering shade for fair skin. I was kind of between this and Golden, which both have more of yellow undertones, but after seeing some swatches by other bloggers (specifically I have Vivianna Does Makeup to thank for helping me figure out my shade, as she has a similar skin tone to me) I chose the lighter shade.
Within seconds of the first application, it was clear to me this stuff is seriously shiny. Like, as I was putting it on I was seriously concerned I looked like Edward Cullen. Within a few minutes the sheen did go down, and while there are still very noticeable sparkle bits when you look close up it does look much more like a glowing, dewy finish from further back.
I expected this finish because I had read a ton of different reviews on the product before buying, so I knew that I'd probably want to mix it with something else to use. I recently ordered the Jouer Matte Moisture Tint, the matte version of this guy, and I simply cannot wait to receive it so I can mix both versions together, because I've heard the finish of the combination is absolutely lovely. As of now, I've been combining the Luminizing Tint with my NARS Tinted Moisturizer, as well as my Clinique CC Cream. Today I wore it combined with the CC Cream, and I truly love the finish! It's the perfect amount of dewy, glowy-ness that I crave without making my face look like a disco ball. The Luminizing Tint is also quite sheer (so know that if you pick a shade darker or lighter you can still get away with it) so by combining the CC Cream I get to add a little more coverage.
Once I get the Matte Moisture Tint, I will definitely do a review of the two together because I've heard the two combined form the perfect base. But this Luminizing Tint definitely met my expectations, and reminds me very much of a slightly less expensive version of my favorite Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer. So for anyone looking to add a little sheen to their look, definitely give this guy a chance! I definitely approve, and can't wait to try out different looks with this new base!

    1. Definitely, I'll post a picture of what they look like on my face to give a better idea too. It's so hard to find any reviewers who have pictures of what both look like together, so I'm pretty interested to see how it goes too! Thanks for reading, I'm loving reading your blog :)
