The Bourjois Cream Blush are a relatively new release. L and I were lucky enough to get sent the shade 2 and 3 to test out. I was even luckier as a few days after receiving these I won a huge Bourjois twitter competition on my personal account and won loads of goodies including all four of these blushes so I gave L the one I doubled up on. Expect lots of reviews on my Bourjois goodies. It’s a brand I kind of forget about but I’ve been so impressed with some of the products.
Cream blushes are always more popular in the spring summer. They look flawless blended into skin to give a healthy glow. During summer month when my skin is behaving I find I don’t always need a foundation so a pop of concealer and a cream blush can leave the skin with a natural glow.
The Bourjois blushes come in four shades. 01 Nude Velvet which is a really natural soft pink with a hint of an orange warmth to it. 02 Healthy Glow is an orangey coral colour, perfect for summer and I’m sure it will look great with a tan. 03 Rose Tender is exactly what you’d expect from the name, a rose pink shade. Lastly is 04 Sweet Cherry is the darkest of them all, almost a brick red shade with a hint of pink to it.
The blushes are a cream to powder formula and blend softly onto the skin for a really natural look. I’ve found they apply best using fingers. I’ve tried with a few brushes and they just don’t work. The pots are colour coordinated to match the colour of the blush so make picking a colour easy. They have a magnetic closer so stay shut well when thrown in the make up bag and come with a mirror in the top.
The colour selection is great, all natural shades and very wearable. They are pigmented colours but due to the colours the chance of looking like a clown wearing these is unlikely. I think these will be perfect for anyone not too sure on wearing blush and for people who prefer the more natural look with blush.
I really love the texture of these, they are so soft and really do melt into the skin and blend into a soft powder finish without looking matte. These will be perfect holiday products!
I’ve been reaching for 01 and 02 the most. I can see me wanting to wear 04 more through the summer.
Have you tried the Bourjois Blushes? Are you a cream blush fan?
As M said, we were lucky enough to be sent some of these to review and I was sent 03 and then luckily for me M gave me her 02 as she’d won the competition.
I was so pleased as these are both the shades that I would have picked if given the chance and absolutely love them.
I’ve been reaching for 02 mainly, as I’m a coral girl through and through but still like my pink days when I feel like being more girly.
These blend like a dream and look so natural. I do like the range of shades, and I’m hoping they bring out some more in the future in more daring shades, like a really bright fuchsia pink!
The formula is so smooth and the colours are still really pigmented so i think they’re really impressive.
The design as M said before is great as even though they are only held by a magnet, its so strong that it really does keep them together and there’s no risk of it coming open in your bag.
I apply mine using the Real Techniques contour brush from their core collection. I use this for my other cream blush products as its so easy to swirl it onto your cheek bones and blend it in without fear of it creating a strip effect.
These products are great and I can’t wait to wear them over the summer, I imagine they will get getting lots of wear!
