Bourjois Cream Blush*, £7.99 | Exclusive to Selfridges (HERE)
In 1868 Bourjois launched the first ever compact powder blush, and the brand itself has been around for 150 years! I think it’s safe to say they’re no amateurs in the business. I was super excited to hear about the launch of their latest cream blushes and I’m pleased to inform they did not disappoint.
This is the Bourjois Cream Blush; it’s the legendary Little Round Pot blush reinvented, featuring a cream-to-powder technology when the product is blended into the skin. They come in 4 wearable shades (#01 Nude Velvet; #02 Healthy Glow; #03 Rose Tender; #04 Sweet Cherry), and the magnetic packaging is really cute and feminine.
The blush is really smooth and easy to blend with fingers or with a stippling blush (my personal favourite). It leaves a beautiful pop of colour on the cheeks, with the most natural and effortless finish; if you have dry skin, this is a good blush to avoid the chalky ‘fake’ finish that powder blushes can leave on the skin.
I have shades #01 Nude Velvet and #03 Rose Tender; ‘Nude Velvet’ is a soft peachy coral shade, and ‘Rose Tender’ is a light rosy pink. My favourite of the two is ‘Nude Velvet’; such a gorgeous wearable shade that looks great on most skin tones. I’m also eyeing ‘Healthy Glow’, which looks like a deeper coral shade – I can’t resist a bit of coral during the warmer months! :)
I wore ‘Nude Velvet’ today and loved how it looked on me; the only downside is that the wear time is a little bit on the short side, but apart from that, I’ve no quibbles with this blush, just love. Happy 150th Birthday, Bourjois!
