I FINALLY got my hands on one of the gorgeous blush bouquet duos from Jouer. I’ve been trying to hold back on a lot of high end purchases and only bought three things in the most recent Sephora VIB sale. I couldn’t resist picking up the Jouer Blush Bouquet in Adore though, the blushes are so subtle and pretty.
Normally I don’t get super excited for blush. It’s one of the least exciting products for me so I surprised myself when I found myself dreaming of the Adore Jouer blush duo. I don’t know if it’s the packaging, or the shades of blush but something about it speaks to me!
I also picked up the Saturday Skin Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream during the sale. My review is Here!

Jouer Blush Bouquet Review | Adore
The Jouer Blush Bouquet Duos retail for $38CAD and contain 0.39oz or 11g of product ($3.45/g). The value is actually amazing compared to other midrange brands on the market. Compared to blush singles the Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay Blush retails at $6.79/g, the Benefit Cosmetics Dandelion Blush retails for $6.47/g, and the Mac Powder Blush retails at $4.66/g.
There aren’t a lot of blush duos at Sephora to compare to. Compared to duos the Cover FX Monochromatic Blush Duos retail at $3.24/g (cheaper!) and the NARS blush duo is $11.2/g (not surprised). The Cover FX is the only blush that compares well in value to the Jouer Blush Bouquets.
They come in four different shade variations, three of which are matte and one of which contains a shimmer. The Blush Bouquet that I am reviewing today is the Jouer Adore Blush Bouquet! Adore is definitely the peachiest duo and contains the most muted/nude blush shades. The Blush Bouquet duos are paraben free and contain vitamin E.

The packaging of the Jouer Blush Bouquets has my heart! My soul even, it’s THAT freaking pretty. I was a little taken aback when I got my VIB sale order in the mail because the cardboard packaging is almost double the size of the compact itself. It made the blushes look tiny taking them out of the giant box!
The palette is made out of a plastic which is coated to look like metal. Unfortunately that does make the packaging feel a little bit cheap but on the bright side the plastic is sturdy and heavy so it kind of negates the fact that it’s plastic. The lid of the Adore blush bouquet is white with floral trim and a simple “Jouer” printed in the middle. It looks quite lux in all my photos!
I love the simple Jouer logo printed in the middle of the powders. I really like when brands put a design or logo on a blush/bronzer/highlighter because it’s a way that I can gauge how much I’ve used it. It’s super helpful for project pans since I don’t actually weight my products each month.
I don’t think that the Jouer Adore Blush Bouquet would work for skin tones that are much darker than mine. The shade Adore Me might be okay but Hold Me is very light, even on my skin tone. It’s a nice shade for a blush but I have to build it up even on my pale skin.
Adore me is much deeper but I don’t need to be too careful applying it because it’s still on the lighter side. I love that there’s a peach shade to pair with the lighter petal pink. I often mix my brush into both shades when I use this duo and the result is a beautiful peachy pink.
Even though I do need to do a bit of building with these powders they blend beautifully on top of foundation and even bare skin. The Adore duo is completely matte. I don’t see any shimmer on my skin from this blush so if you’re looking for luminosity I would try the Jouer Rose Gold Blush Bouquet.
I also didn’t find that the shade Hold Me wore all day long. Because its so light I found I couldn’t even see it on my cheeks at the end of the day. Adore me lasted longer and was able to make it through my work day with no problems.
Even though I lusted over the Jouer Blush Bouquets for months and months when I finally had one my excitement died a little bit. I guess a blush will always be just a blush to me. I knew that I don’t get as excited for blushes as I do bronzers or highlighters, but for some reason I really thought this time would be different. They’re beautiful and I’m glad that I treated myself, but I don’t think I’d do it again with a higher end blush.
- Beautiful Packaging
- You get a ton of product for $38!
- Both blushes build up & blend out well
- Adore Me wears all day.
- Hold Me is subtle and unlikely to show up on darker skin tones
- Hold Me isn’t as long wearing as Adore Me
- Both shades are similar. They complement each other well but if you are wanting two different shades this ain’t it.
