Hate
Purchased

Doesn't not apply on brush nicely. It's tiny and hard to swirl a brush in. The picture is misleading. The powder part got gross. Overall hate it and I want to send it back.

Feels Cheap
Purchased

I am so upset with this purchase. The powder felt chalk like and barely adhered to the brush. I tried two different types of brushes. This compact is so small its difficult even trying to adhere the make up to the brush for this reason alone. When I opened the compact the glue had come undone and nearly dropped the make up. It would probably have been better suited as trash.

Liked for a few months...

I've had this product for awhile, and what I don't love about it is that the top of the "cake" of the product seems to develop a hard, slippery surface after a month or two.
I had been using it for about a month, when I noticed my brushes were no longer picking up product. As I continued to swipe my brush across it, I noticed the top sort of had some streaky "hardness" now across the top of the powder, preventing my brush from picking up powder.
I repurchased to try it again, as I did like the product, but it happened the second time too! Not a fan, Jouer.
Note: I wash my brushes at least once a week, so I know it wasn't a buildup of facial oil or products from the brushes causing it.

Hard to use small compact

I had a tough time using this 2 in 1 because the bronzer was hard to get to since my brush would also always hit the powder. I thought it was going to be a bigger compact too, but it was super small. Also hard to open. The one positive I guess is the size of the mirror.

Low-pigemenation, underwhelemed

I had such high expectations for this because I love the sleek packaging and thought this would be convenient for traveling. Unfortunately, the product is so densely packed that very little came off with a brush when I tried to apply it. I tried many different types of brushes, but very little product picked up. I had to press down very hard and get it to transfer. Considering I don't have this problem with other pressed powders (even drugstore brands) I will not be repurchasing.

Whim-sical
Purchased

I actually bought this because it was suggested when I was purchasing the tinted moisturizer and I was looking for a different pressed powder than what I've used for years. I don't love it or hate it. It's good for a last minute cover up but I don't really see the product being used, which is weird. I do wish it came with a sponge or a hidden brush so I didn't have to always have a tool to apply it to my face.

ehhh..
Purchased

I LOVE the tinted moisturizer by Jouer! When i was ordering my full size of the moisturizer this popped up as a suggestion. The only reason I clicked on it was because i have been looking for a bronzer. This is much smaller than it looks... and it really wasn't great for a bronzer. I liked the powder part though.

Good coverage, but small product.
Purchased

I wear this with the Jouer luminizing moisture tint. I like it, but I use both the powder and the bronzer as my skin tone is darker. It provides good coverage and a lovely matte finish with a nice satiny feel. However, the compact is really small - only the width of one of their eyeshadow compacts - and it doesn't seem to have very much product in it. When it's gone I may try the Jouer luminizing powder instead.

Weird top layer

I had the same experience as other reviewers. I couldn't get any of the product on my brush. I noticed the top layer on the makeup seemed to get slick, so I scraped off the top layer and now I can get the product out no problem. I'm not sure what kind of overlay Jouer is putting on its products but they need to stop. I had to do the same thing with my mortifying bronzer. Once you get that top layer off the product is great though.
