Jouer Mineral Powder Bronzer in Suntan: Review + Swatches

I love trying out new bronzers.  Next to blush and foundation-type products, bronzers are some of my favorite to play around with.  The bronzer I'm sharing today is the Jouer Mineral Powder Bronzer in Suntan.


The packaging claims that this product protects against free radicals with antioxidants of Green Tea Leaf Extract and Vitamins A & E.  This sounds fancy, but is one of those things that is hard to measure the actual effects of, so I can't really say I notice a huge difference because of it.  For those concerned, this product is oil free and paraben free.


Officially described as "matte honey bronze," I concur that Suntan is a warm, matte brown powder.  I prefer mostly matte bronzers, as I usually use them for contouring purposes.  


This is the first Jouer powder I've ever tried, and I was really impressed with the formulation of Suntan.  It is super smooth, pigmented, and has zero crumble to it.  The color definitely leans warm, but I didn't find it too warm for my light complexion.  The color is on the light-medium end of the spectrum... I don't see it working much for anyone with a deeper complexion.


Here is a look at the bronzer on my complexion after doing some contouring.  I think the color works quite nicely!  I'm wearing my Dr. Jart Premium Beauty Balm underneath and a little concealer, but that is it for other makeup on my face.  I find that this powder wears all day.


Like other Jouer products, this bronzer has grooves in the side to lock into other products and form a palette effect.  I really like this about Jouer products.  However, when it comes to bronzer, I prefer to do a circular swirl motion with my brush, and with such a long skinny powder, I find myself doing more of a tap-tap-tap motion.


Overall, I'm really happy with this product, and definitely recommend it if you have a lighter complexion and like matte bronzers.

The Jouer Mineral Powder Bronzer retails for $28 (7g/0.25 oz) and is available in store at select Nordstrom locations, as well as Nordstrom online.

What is your favorite bronzer right now?
