Jouer Blush Bouquet in Flirt

Swatches: Kiss Me, Touch Me

I’ve talked about Jouer on the blog quite a bit. I absolutely love their face products! Their blushes and highlighters are wonderful. I wasn’t exactly blown away with their liquid lipsticks, but their metallic liquid lipsticks are amazing. However, I’m beginning to think that I may have been too quick to judge because the more I try from the brand the more I love them. I guess I didn’t choose well the first time around.

I feel like their new product launches aren’t so over the top yet they still call to me. Their products are so elegant and beautiful on their own that they really speak for themselves. And because of that I find myself wanting it all. Even when I’m on a bit of a no-buy. I’m sure you see where I’m going with this.

When I first saw promo photos of the Blush Bouquet duos I knew I was going to break my no-buy. They come in 3 shades; Coquette, Adore, and Flirt. I purchased Flirt. This duo contains 2 complimentary blushes that are said to deliver full pigment color and blend to a perfect finish. The 2 blushes included in Flirt are Kiss Me which is a warm carnation pink with a matte finish and Touch Me which is a shimmering warm light peach. Both shades really do compliment each other beautifully. You can use them individually, swirl together, or do what I did which is layer the shimmer shade on top of the matte. I pretty much treated it like a blush/highlighter duo and the end result was a beautiful, more natural look.

Touch Me was very soft and velvety. Kiss Me was a little stiffer, but not overly so. They both applied and blended beautifully! They’re nicely pigmented and build up easily for a bolder look. The packaging really brings this whole duo together. It’s easily the most elegant looking blush duo in my collection. If you’re going to break a no-buy, it had better be for something as beautiful as the Blush Bouquet duo. Because really who can blame you? Look at it!

In the beginning of the year I talked about my experience with Esqido Lashes. I was really impressed with the quality of their lashes. I loved how they looked and felt. Even the packaging was all kinds of elegant and just so well thought out. I didn’t think I could love another pair of lashes as much as I loved Night Bouquet. And then the most beautiful package landed on my doorstep and I suddenly had another favorite.

Feast your eyes on the Unisyn Collection by Esqido! Esqido’s Unisyn lashes are handcrafted with an ultra-fine synthetic blend with a soft cotton band. It is said to redefine the meaning of the perfect union; weightless, beautiful, and natural looking. At the moment there are 10 beautiful styles to choose from.

  • Bread & Butter
  • PB & J
  • Peaches & Cream
  • Peace & Love
  • Heart & Soul
  • X & O
  • Day & Night
  • Gin & Tonic
  • Naughty & Nice
  • Smoke & Fire

Aside from these 10 styles you can also purchase a kit. The Unisyn Lash Kit includes 3 pairs of Unisyn lashes. The styles I received are Bread & Butter, Love & Peace, and Smoke & Fire. This nifty kit covers all of your bases. The Bread & Butter lashes are great every day lashes. These are the ones I tried first. They were so incredibly lightweight! I didn’t even notice them throughout the day. They’re so natural looking too! Smoke & Fire is more bold and glamorous. I feel like Love & Peace is a nice middle ground. Which is why I said this kit covers all of your bases.

The Unisyn Lash Kit also contains Esqido’s Companion Eyelash Glue. I love that their eyelash glue contains a wand for easy application. It’s nice and thin and applies the perfect amount of glue without making a mess. It’s also latex free and I didn’t detect a scent.

The Bread & Butter lashes are my favorite. I can definitely see myself reaching for this style often. You can see the Bread & Butter lashes in action below.

Overall, I’d have to say that this is a beautiful lash kit! If you’re a fan of false lashes, I highly suggest checking it out. The lashes are of great quality. They were easy to apply and felt and looked natural. I’m also loving the packaging. The back of the package contains a small tab that you pull back so that the lashes slide right out. I have to say that I love this packaging more than the last. This way I can easily see the name and style of the lashes. They’re too pretty so it makes sense to put them on display.

Esqido The Unisyn Collection

The Esqido Unisyn Collection will be available on March 28th at 12:00 AM EST. The lashes retail at $22.00. Esqido will be running a special where you buy one pair of Unisyn lashes and you get the second pair 50% off (limit 1 per order)! The Unisyn Lash Kit will retail for $50.00 (a $76.00 value)!

The Ordinary Serum Foundation

I feel like every time I review a foundation I mention how I don’t have many in rotation. It’s true though. I usually find what works and stick with it. Sometimes I’ll hear about a new and exciting foundation and will run out to get it only to be left disappointed. Due to my very sensitive and very picky skin, foundation is more miss than hit for me. So when I find a good one I just stick with it. However, sometimes I just can’t help myself. So when everyone started talking about The Ordinary Serum Foundation I just had to try it for myself.

It took me a while to get my hands on this foundation. Actually, it took me a while to get my hands on any of The Ordinary products. They always seem to be out of stock on the very few websites that carry the products. Probably due to the super low price. I finally got lucky and saw that my shade was in stock. I hate buying new foundation online because I never know what shade I’m going to need. I ended up using Temptalia’s Foundation Matrix and got a fairly decent match.

The Ordinary Serum Foundation is a medium coverage foundation with the lightweight feel of a serum. It offers buildable, natural looking coverage with a semi-matte finish. It’s oil free and cruelty free. It comes in a nice looking plastic bottle with a pump. The pump can be a bit tricky to operate. It doesn’t always dispense the right amount. Most of my other pumps can easily pump out a bit without making a mess. It’s very difficult getting just a bit to pump out. And sometimes it’ll just spurt out making a bit of a mess. Not sure if it’s a thing or maybe I just got a faulty pump. But I figured it was worth mentioning.

The Ordinary Serum Foundation

I went with the shade 1.2P which is suitable for light skin with pink undertones. I’d like to note that Temptalia’s Foundation Matrix suggested 2.0P, but after looking at swatches I felt that might be a tad too dark for me since it’s Winter and I haven’t seen the sun in months. I posted swatches of The Ordinary Serum Foundation in the shade 1.2P alongside a few of the other foundations I use in rotation. This isn’t all of them, but it’s the few I reach for the most.

As you can tell it’s a little watery, but not overly so. I did my usual routine of moisturizer, primer, etc. I applied it with my BeautyBlender. It applied and blended nicely. It did a great job at covering up all of my redness. Aside from the redness I don’t have much that needs to be covered up so I can’t comment on how well it does at covering imperfections. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it evened out my redness though. It built up nicely. I didn’t detect a scent. And it truly does feel lightweight! It held up pretty good throughout the day. After about 4-5 hours I could see it start to break up around my nose a bit. But none of the redness was poking through and my cheeks can get very rosy. By the time I went to wash it off it was still looking pretty good. You can see The Ordinary Serum Foundation in action below.

The Ordinary Serum Foundation

Overall, I’d have to say that this is a great foundation. It did a great job at evening out my redness and it didn’t irritate my sensitive skin. It’s not the most lasting foundation, but it holds up surprisingly well. I’d say this is a great going out foundation. Not so sure I’d say it was a great 9-5 foundation. I’d definitely opt for something more long lasting for those of you who work or have oily skin. But seeing as how I wear makeup to run a few errands, daily coffee runs and the occasional shopping trip, it’s perfect for me. I’ll definitely be adding this to the rotation.
