Jouer Le Matchbox Summer 2015 "Cool" Box Review and Coupon Code

The Jouer Le Matchbox is probably one of my more exciting boxes. I think Jouer has high quality products and I've been very pleased with what I've received so far. I just can't resist this box. I have enjoyed the sample Jouer products I've received in other subscription boxes so when the Le Matchbox was launched, I subscribed immediately.

The Spring Box was valued at $150 but this Summer Box is not quite as high value-wise. It also has only five items. I'd love it if they could sneak in another sample size. Even so, the products are quality and seasonally appropriate and I'm super happy with it.

The Cost: $45/quarterly

What You Get: A curated collection of Jouer products personalized for skin tone and type valued at $100+.

Crème Eyeshadow in Organza-Lightweight in texture with a velvety finish, these subtle shimmers can be worn alone as a shadow, layered to illuminate the eye, or smudged along lash line to create natural definition.
I'm not a big fan of creme eyeshadows but I'm willing to give this a try. It's a nice neutral with a little shimmer. Actually, it's labeled a shimmering lavender taupe. That sounds like totally my style so I'm gonna keep this. Even though my new Tarte After Dark palette is screaming my name and I'm unbelievably happy with it.
Value: $22
Cheek and Lip Tint in Petal- 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.
This is actually a deluxe sample size. That doesn't bother me because it takes me literally forever to get through a blush. I'm not kidding. Since it's summer, I've been feeling more and more like cream blushes are where it's at so I'm excited to incorporate this incredibly wearable color. It's a soft rose pink and I'm all over it.
Value: $11

Everyday Effortless Mascara- This irresistible, clump-resistant mascara conditions and volumizes to create naturally defined lashes. The everyday-wear formula contains Vitamin E to moisturize and condition.
Mine actually turned out to be brown. Since I'm overflowing in the mascara department and am still monogamously faithful to my Hope Girl Korean mascara, this will be passed on.
Value: $24
Lip Sheer SPF 15-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.
This is a hot frickin' pink. No, wait. It's a bubblegum 80's pink. I'm not too sure about the color but the formula kiiiind of make me want to slather it all over my body. It's sleek and silky smooth. Since it has an SPF, I'm thinking I might need this forever. Plus it instantly hydrated my chapped lips and I'm not used to that sort of excellence. Wow. I think I'm in love and need more colors.
Value: $24
Mineral Powder Bronzer in Suntan-Truly perfect for all skin tones, this oil-free mineral rich powder bronzer promotes a healthy glowing complexion while protecting against free radicals with the powerful antioxidants of Japanese Green Tea Powder and Vitamins C and E.
I can't decide about this. I mean, I've been salivating over bronzers lately but this seems so dark. Instead I've become hooked on my Tarte Park Avenue Princess. It's subtle with pink undertones and I'm kind of in love with it. So in love that I think this will make friends with someone else. If I hadn't just bought the Tarte After Dark palette, I'd be all over this.
Value: $30

VERDICT: I have been so happy with Jouer cosmetic products and this box has an incredible value. If you want to try out the Jouer line, this is the way to do it. These are full size, high quality products with a couple deluxe samples tossed in. I am so impressed with this subscription. For $45 I got $111 dollars worth of product and not just any product but well branded makeup. Plus there's the fact that they customize the box according to your skintone. If you get the Warm box, you'll receive a different color of lipstick (a vibrant coral) and a different color of eyeshadow.

If you would like to sign up for Jouer Le Matchbox, you can do that right here. They have one coupon code but it's for 25% off a Primer (either Anti-Aging or Anti-Blemish). You'll get 25% off of the primer with code SUMMERPRIME. I'm not even sure you need to have the Matchbox in your cart.
