Jouer Creme Eyeshadow

Hey everybody! I hope everyone is having a really great holiday season, I know I am! I just got my baby puppy yesterday! More about her later because I really could not wait to show you guys this Jouer Creme Eyeshadow in Feather I got the other day




I ordered it from Birchbox and got it for free! I had racked up so many points (230 to be exact) and that meant that I had $20 in points to spend. I have had my eye on this for a couple of weeks now and when I started contemplating which shade I wanted, I googled them (there's only 4) for swatches. I found each swatch...except for one, which was Feather. It was the one I was leaning towards anyways, and figured it would be a good chance to swatch it for the internet world, since I couldn't find one. There are 2 dark colors, and 2 light colors with Feather being one of the lighter ones. This one has a pink undertone to it: obviously already swatched it as I couldn't keep my hands off long enough for a photo. Isn't it gorgeous?

As you can see, the shadow is really sheer for the first swatch, but it is seriously buildable. I love that it is sheer considering it would be a good highlighter because of that. With one coat on my cheek bone, when the light hits it perfectly, it looks natural and beautiful. In fact, here's a great example of how pretty it is with the light hitting it:

excuse the blurryness of the picture, as it is a little hard to capture with one hand!

-as for using it as a shadow (as it is intended) I like to use this under Stila's Kitten (which came broken!)

-I found that I did need a primer underneath or else it will crease. Another point I wanted to make was that it is so silky & dries down to a powdery like consistency. It is so extremely beautiful that I really cannot tell you how much I love it and I cannot wait to try out Cashmere next. If you have enough Birchbox points, get this! Even if you don't, I would pay $20 for this little gem.

Now about my puppy! She is a blue miniature pincher and I named her Stella, after Stella McCartney. It was the perfect middle ground as I am a fan of Stella because of her clothing line, and mom is a fan of her dad, Paul. But I sometimes call her grimlin or reindeer because she looks like both of them. I bought her the cutest coat! it's red and has a hood with fur (faux) and if it was bigger, you would mistake it for a human coat. I also bought her a cute sweater with ruffles I will be taking some pictures and i'll put them up in no time! Yep, im the crazy dog lady now lol

Thanks so much for reading!
