Jouer Blushing Beauty Collection Swatches and Review

The Blushing Beauty Collection by Jouer (previewed here) contains two eyeshadows, a matte powder and bronzer, a cream cheek tint and highlighter, and a lip gloss.   The items come in their own separate modular containers that can be joined together, making it easy to make your own customized configurations.
There is a lot to like about the Blushing Beauty Collection.  The colors work together seamlessly for a fresh and natural look.  The sheer matte facial powder and bronzer are finely milled and are supposed to hydrate skin while still reducing shine.  They also contain Gingko Biloba leaf extract, aloe vera, and vitamins A and E for skin nurturing benefits.  I love that there is no shimmer in the bronzer.
L to R:  Bronzer, Sheer Matte Powder, Feather, Whisper, Chocolate, Peach, Cherish
Whisper, a soft coral cream blush, does have a fine gold shimmer in it, but it did not emphasize my pores and the color itself is very soft.  I did not find applying more to intensify color worked well for me, as at the end of the day my cheeks looked a bit blotchy.  So, to deepen the color I used a similarly colored powder blush such as Chantecaille's Fun on top, which also extended the wear.  The highlighter is the same consistency and it worked well on the usual places.  These are not a cream to powder formula, but I did not find them sticky or overly 'dewy'.

The eyeshadow duo, Peach and Chocolate, are smooth and blendable.  Peach makes for a nice all over shade and Chocolate has a lovely golden shimmer to it without going metallic.  These are soft colors, but that doesn't mean they suffer from a lack of pigmentation.  Think "natural" looking.

The lipgloss Cherish provides a peachy coral tint to the lip and I found it comfortable and mildly hydrating with shea butter, jojoba seed oil, pomegranate seed oil, castor seed oil, and vitamins e and c.

Overall, I'm impressed with the quality of Jouer's makeup and can see investing in some more at some point.  Since you can mix and match each modular component, there are really multiple ways to configure a palette for whatever your need may be.  I personally find all four parts together to be a bit bulky and would just through the gloss in my purse, but that's the beauty of being able to customize as you see fit:-)

Here are some of the looks I did with the Blushing Beauty Collection.

  1. The lipgloss actually looks very gorgeous and I rarely like lipglosses :)

    1. I'm a total lip gloss fiend! It's only recently that I've gotten in lipstick.

  2. Such rich colors! Lovely collection!

  3. I've been dying to try some of the jouer products. That lip gloss color is absolutely gorgeous. And I love the eye look with the teal liner!! Beautiful!

    1. I'm impressed with the Jouer products I've tried so far - the quality definitely seems to be there!
