In the spotlight : Jouviance makeup line!

Jouviance, a brand specialized in skin care, has launched recently a new line of dermocosmetic makeup for sensitive skin! This makeup allows women to beautify themselves while taking care of their skin.

Mim' Injection Plumping Stick ($32 for 2.8g)
I like to use it as an highlighter on my forehead, cupid's bow and chin to brighten up my complexion. It blends easily into the skin without being too greasy or waxy! It's a light neutral beige and it's not shimmery at all. You might not see much difference if your skin is pale though. 

Hydra-Color Quatuor in 02 Back To Basics ($34 for 2 x 2.5g and 2 x 4g)
I love these eyeshadows, this quad is a must have if you like neutral and matte shades! They feel a bit dry to the touch, but they apply beautifully and are easy to blend. They last all day on me, but I do suggest that you still use a primer with them since they can be a bit sheer without it. You can even use them wet, the dark brown is gorgeous as an eyeliner.

Everyone should own an eyeshadow quad like this one!

Sur-Mesure Foundation Serum ($48 for 30ml)
Sur-Mesure is a colored serum which is very thin and blend easily without looking like foundation. The coverage is very light, it unify the complexion but I still need to add some concealer on scars, redness and zits. If you don't like wearing foundation, but want some light coverage and a luminous finish, you may want to ditch your regular moisturizer and try this serum instead!

I do wish there was another shade for golden skin tones, because this one is way too pink for me so I need to mix it with a green corrector. Please note that since my skin is very oily, I need to set it with powder and use a good mattifying primer, otherwise my skin will look oily quite fast during the day.

Right side is blended with a kabuki brush 

Cooling Hydra-Powder in 01 Universelle Light ($32 for 10g)
This loose powder is different from the others powders I have tried, it's like an hybrid between a powder and a cream. It feels really good on the skin, but I just couldn't find a way to apply it, it looked cakey. No matter which brushes I tried, I couldn't blend it, it just stick there and looks patchy (as you can see in the pic).

If you own this powder and know how to use it, please let me know!!

Gloss XOXO in 01 Bisou de Véro ($20 for 4.7ml)
Bisou de Véro is a sheer peachy pink with tiny gold shimmers. The texture is great, it's a bit sticky but much less than MAC Lipglasses (which are soooo tacky) and it last quite a long time too ; I only need to reapply it after 3-4 hours.

This gloss smell like mint (love it!) and has moisturizing and plumping properties, but it doesn't tingle or burn and my lips aren't red either (yay!). It does help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, so I love to wear it with the lipsticks that have a tendency to settle in my fine lines, it seems to help. The only thing I didn't like is that the doe foot applicator doesn't deliver enough product, I need to dip it back in the tube a couple of times to apply the right amount of gloss on my lips.

I'm wearing the Sur-Mesure Foundation Serum, Mim' Injection Plumping Stick, Hydra-Color Quatuor in Back To Basics, and the Gloss XOXO in Bisou de Véro.
