I’m forever trying out new bronzers and rarely buy the same one twice in a row. I was faithful to Benefit’s Hoola until they redesigned the boxes and provided less product for the same amount of cash. That’s when I got annoyed and stopped buying it. Even if it was a fantastic bronzer suitable for a lot of skin tones. I moved onto NYC Sunny, then Bobbi Brown’s super dark bronzer which I only recently finished. Next up to plate we’re batting with Jouer’s mineral powder bronzer in suntan.
I purchased Jouer Mineral Powder Bronzer in Suntan on Nordstrom’s website in May. It isn’t available anywhere in Canada, to my knowledge — so how did I find out about it? The lovely Fleur de Force on YouTube. My favorite person to watch.
This is a matte bronzer with no shimmer. I try to steer clear of bronzers with shimmer to them. I feel like they’re a little too unnatrual. If you want your skin to be glowy, just put a highlighter on to the cheek bone area. Not all over, where I put my bronzer.
This suntan shade shown below truly has a buttery consistency to it when applied. I think it’s a great shade for those paler ladies. When I have self tanner on, you can’t see the product as well, since it just blends in too well with my darker skin tone. Overall, I’m very pleased with the product and would recommend it if you had a lighter complexion.
Aside from the fact that the bronzer is matte, the packaging itself is quite unique thanks to Christina Zilber (Founder and Creative Director of Jouer Cosmetics. If you have two Jouer products, you can slide them together to be side-by-side or snap them together to be back-to-back. Create your own palette, or have just one single piece, like my lonely little bronzer. It’s like adult lego blocks, don’t you think?
Watch the video above, it explains the brand well and how great the products are. Isn’t Christina just stunning? I’ve always said I wasn’t very good at applying makeup, especially eyeshadow. Primarily since I’m not drawn to bold colors to create dramatic looks on my face. Jouer is a safe line of cosmetics that is meant for people like me. She has all sorts of shades pulled from the natural elements and popped them into her palettes for everyone to enjoy.
