JOUER SUNSWEPT MATTIFYING POWDER BRONZER, MISLEADING AND SUMMERY
Of all the bronzers I’ve mentioned in my latest makeup collection post, the Jouer Mattifying powder bronzer in Sunswept is, by far, the least spoken about, which doesn’t stop it from being beautiful and pretty unique of its kind! I simply thought it deserves its own blog post and review, so here it is!
In the era of glowy skin, the Jouer Bronzer’s name is particularly ill-chosen, and, more importantly, misleading. Indeed, if the Jouer Sunswept bronzer has the longevity of a traditional matte powder, the finish it gives to the skin is by no means matte, it’s a satin finish with some light reflections in it! Combined with the shade, which is neutral and warm at the same time, the overall result on the skin is definitely more radiant than anything else. This is actually what I love about this bronzer: the pretty rare combination between a skin-like finish and an outstanding longevity! Even though the powder itself is finely milled, the Jouer Mattifying powder bronzer in the shade Sunswept is very pigmented, which makes the application trickier and less mistake-proof than usual, depending on the brush I’m using – I would avoid anything too densely packed-. It easily becomes patchy or simply too intense, yet, once the risk is known, it is also easily avoidable, just by staying light-handed throughout the application. It never highlights skin textures, it just sets on the skin while adding a silky feel to it. Moreover, if used on the eyes -which I do regularly- it has the same longevity skills and never emphasizes fine lines.
Overall, whilst the gorgeous, neutral shade makes the Jouer Mattifying powder bronzer easily wearable, both the radiant finish and longevity it offers are particularly appropriate to summer months!
