I love spring because of the weather. It is not too cold or too hot. I also love seeing all the flowers bloom during the spring time. Even though pink is my favorite color, I still love all spring colors. They are so vibrant and so pretty. Colors ranging from blue, yellow, green, purple, orange and some nude colors too. Therefore, last month when Jouer Cosmetics launched their Springtime in Paris Eyeshadow Palette, I just had to have it.
Here is a little information about Jouer Cosmetics in case you have not heard of the brand before. Jouer was founded and created by Christina Zilber a “proud mom of two, and advocate for empowering women and girls in the developing world. Christina Zilber has a passion for fashion and beauty.”
“Christina learned the art of makeup from her model mother, obsesses over creating cosmetic formulations that are also good for your skin, stocks her drawer with peachy-pink lip gloss, and believes that every woman can look and feel beautiful with a healthy dose of self-acceptance and the right arsenal of beauty tools.”
“Most of all, Christina believes in love, grace, gratitude, making mistakes, forgiving yourself, and the pursuit of happiness.
“Launched in 2008, Christina designed Jouer to provide a fresh, editorial take on makeup that compliments a woman’s individual sense of style. From natural washes of color, to intensely pigmented, full-coverage formulas, Jouer offers supreme wearability, unmatched quality, and award-winning packaging for the modern woman. Beyond the world of beauty, Christina works with UNICEF to help create opportunities for women around the world.”
Therefore, you can see she is like most of us beauty lovers. I for instance can relate to her motivation to start her own cosmetic line. Although, I do not have a cosmetics company (maybe someday, hey anything is possible right!), I do love and believe in empowering women and supporting each other to be better, to fight and work hard for our dreams. Life is too short, so enjoy it and do what makes you happy!

About the product:
The Springtime in Paris Eyeshadow Palette “ Reminiscent of cherry blossoms lining the streets of Paris, the Palette features 12 rich shadows in cool plums and warm neutrals delivering high-pigment color that lasts. This palette is also Paraben Free. Sulfate Free. Phthalate Free. Highly Pigmented. Crease Resistant. Dermatologist Tested.”
Now I did mentioned that I love pink so the packaging alone sold me; what can I say cute packaging is a weakness lol… This palette has a light pink classy reflective leopard print case. It has a beautiful descent size mirror once you open the palette and it contains twelve gorgeous eyeshadow shades with a mixture of matte, metallic, and satin finishes. I love how portable and easy to hold this palette is, definitely perfect for traveling.
I have been using this palette a lot for the past month and I absolutely love it. The eyeshadows are super soft, creamy, buildable, easy to blend and very pigmented. For testing purposes, I tried it with and without primer just to test their longevity. Without primer, it does crease a little bit during the day but the color stays the same. I always wear primer so the eyeshadows last all day with primer. I will be sharing some looks with this palette on IG so make sure you follow!
I believe it was worth the $40, the packaging is gorgeous. It has great quality and you get twelve eyeshadows. I have seen palettes with less eyeshadows cost this much or more. Do I recommend it? Of course I do, it has been my go palette since I got it.
