I haven't tried many products from makeup brand Jouer before and so when I saw the Jouer Springtime In Paris Eyeshadow Palette online, I thought it sounded divine. The Palette comes in pretty nude and gold packaging and the colour range is quite diverse.
As you open up the palette, there is a mirror on the inside of the lid, and then twelve eye shadows in the base of the palette. There are a mixture of matte and shimmer shadows within this palette and I must admit, given the name, Springtime In Paris, I did expect something generally a little lighter. You get four lighter shades and then the other eight are really quite dark and cool toned. Yes, I did see the palette online, but the pictures there made the palette seem different, and so I was a little taken aback about this, but it is still a great palette, just not particularly very Spring-like.
The shades inside the palette are;
Creme - Warm vanilla matte
Petal - Ballet pink matte
Mauve - Warm medium mauve matte
Aubergine - Warm mauve-purple matte
True Gold - Metallic light gold
Camel - Light brown matte
Midnight - Mid-blue shimmer
Rouge - Pink-red shimmer
Cinnamon - Chestnut brown shimmer
Ash Brown - Dark brown matte
Amethyst - Cool-toned purple matte
Slate - Black-grey matte
Some of the darker shades did take some building up, but the lighter shades are super creamy and really well pigmented. I think I would have quite happily have had a quad made from Creme, Petal, True Gold and Camel as they are definitely my favourite shades and are really pretty and buildable. The blurb says that the palette was inspired by the cherry blossoms in Paris, but I just really don't see that, and I would use this more during the Winter months.
The Jouer Springtime In Paris Eyeshadow Palette costs £35.00 which works out at £2.92 a shadow which isn't too bad when you work it out like that. You can find it online at Beauty Bay here.
