Playing with different makeup brands and shades can really update your look and change your mood. I know trying the lovely shades of makeup below has me really looking forward to spring!
I have been enjoying trying these luxe brands and beautiful spring shades. Some of my favorites are:
Jouer (zhew-ey) means ‘to play’ in French. This brand has a playful-take on beauty and style, keeping makeup fun and simple. I think that the brand has elegant products in very pretty colors. I have been testing the products in the photo and really enjoyed the fresh look I can achieve with them. The products left to right are:
Luminizing Moisture Tint ($38 USD) — This lightweight moisturizing tint evens out imperfections and fades the appearance of fine lines with its light-diffusing multi-mineral formula. SPF 20 protects from UVA and UVB rays while Ginseng and Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract deliver antioxidants to skin, promoting a healthy complexion. Available in seven skin-matching shades.
Tint in Bare ($20 USD) — These beautifully blendable, sheer shades are designed to complement all skin tones. With easy fingertip application, these multi-use tints can be worn on cheeks as a blush or on lips for a flush of color. Available in eleven gorgeous shades.
Lip Sheer SPF 15 ($22 USD) — Beautifully sheer and moisturizing, Jouer Lip Sheer SPF 15 is loaded with Vitamin E and Aloe Vera to lock in moisture and assist in keeping lips smooth, nourished and protected. In eight sheer shades
What I think: The moisture tint is a beautiful choice if you want a lighter formula foundation. I like how it blends in and looks completely natural. The Tint in Bare (a nude) is really pretty on cheeks and lips for an everyday fresh look. I am loving the Lip Sheer, it gives a soft, matte look that is perfect for spring. The only thing I don’t like about it is that the black finish on the case is coming off and it makes it look like I’ve had it for a very long time, when it is new.

Pick yourself a bouquet of colorful blooms with the Spring 2014 collection from Paul & Joe! Whether you prefer the classic lilies and roses or enjoy the exotic azalea and amaryllis, this Parisian-inspired collection has it all!
I have been testing the face powder in the gorgeous bird print box and the soft face brush:
Face Powder ($45 USD) — This bird’s nest-inspired packaging houses a face powder that mixes four gentle tones of blue, white, pink and yellow to give a balanced blend for a beautiful complexion.
Face Brush ($30 USD) — The soft bristles feel smooth on skin and hold powder exceptionally well to deliver even color to the skin.
What I think: This duo is beautiful and functional. The brush is compact and perfect to use with the powder pearls. The powder itself leaves a soft glow to the face and is perfect for setting makeup.

Intricate and luxurious cosmetics brand Rouge Bunny Rouge melds opulence and
beauty with embellished detailing in a range of colour make-up that embraces
romance and whimsy alongside modern technologies and first-class ingredients.
Quartz Eyeliner ($32.48 USD) — A soft, water-based formula ensures tender application. They also added Borosilicates (‘Anthracite Essence’ does not include Borosilicates) – minute particles of artificial quartz that fill the formula with an incredible shine and shed a coquettish lustre onto the lines. The Eyeliner allows for high coverage, dries quickly, is super long-wear and has excellent skin compatibility. An elegant brush means you can apply both fine thin lines and passionate wide lines.
Long Lasting Eye Shadow ($27.84 USD) — Discover a new powder eye shadow with an astonishing lightweight, creamy touch and unprecedented adherence. This formula creates pure dynamic iridescence while it maintains second skin effect. It has extended 8-hour wear that will stay perfect and look freshly applied all day. Orange-derived Flavonoid improves blood microcirculation, enhances luminosity and serves as free radicals scavenger.
XXX Lip Plump ($32.48 USD) — immediately volumises lips while enabling a long-lasting beauty. The rich, shiny gloss encourages a slow and comfortably swell, defining while pluming and bequeathing lips with the ability to store water, so a fabulous fullness is maintained over time.
What I think: This is such a fun makeup line. I love the eyes shadow and eyeliner together. It makes a fun shimmery smoky eye. And the Lip Plum is perfect because it doesn’t irritate my lips, but does make them look fuller. And the packaging for all of the items is so glamorous!
