A review of Jouer’s Skinny dip Ultra Foil shimmer shadows

Hey my loves! I’ve been meaning to review the new Jouer summer collection, which included this beautiful shimmer eyeshadow palette for a while now. I wanted to test every shade on myself as well as others to give you my final verdict!

I got this from Cultbeauty for £35 as a little treat because i dont really play with glitters and pigments and i thought this would be a great place to start. It claims to, ” deliver an intense, shimmering metallic finish thats long wearing and crease resistant”PicsJoin_20176216565927

First of all, the packaging is absolutely beautiful and the palette itself is really lightweight and easy to carry around in a handbag or my kit for clients so im pleased with that. The palette and colours itself is a real joy to see because its just so stunning, doesnt it just look like a dream!

Application and swatches

So in the product description it says the shadows can be used wet or dry meaning you can use setting spray onto a packing brush and then apply onto the lid, but after how strong the swatches came out on my fingers i thought to pack that onto my eyelid instead of a brush. I did try using a dense packing brush but i just didnt feel comfortable with it. The swatches came out beautifully, there was a strong deposit of pigment, it feels creamy and smooth, not glittery or chunky at all which is a good sign!

On the eyelid when using my ring finger and lightly packing it on, it was very pigmented and very little eyeshadow was left on my finger. Sometimes in some palettes a shimmery pigment swatches amazingly on the finger but it just doesnt show up on the eyes which defeats the whole purpose of the palette i guess but its great for the ‘gram😂. I was so pleased with how it looked on my eyes, it was so simple and very little product got wasted so im really in love with how well this palette worked for me

Final Verdict

Overall, ive used this palette time and time again, i fall in love every time, and if you do decide to get this ( i highly recommend to do so) just TRY the shade midnight swim or Tan lines on top of a matte brown or copper shade on your eyelid and you’ll get my obsession, trust me.

I think its a great alternative to using glitter thats quite intimidating and messy, i made a gigantic mess over this eyelook i posted on my instagram but i managed to save it (just about). Its also a great alternative to the Stilla Magnificent metals which you just get one shade of whereas these are 6 gorgeous pans! Theres also great swatches on Jouer’s instagram and you can see the full skinny dip collection. I really hope they create a holiday edition of this with greens and golds and lovely warm tones (im drooling) But fingers crossed!

That wraps up my review, im really pleased that i have it and im quite impressed with Jouer and i can see why beauty influencers regularly promote Jouer for its great quality and aesthetic and i cant wait to see what more they have to offer❤

See you in my next post!
