Bourjois Blusher Review

These round pots stole my heart and I just had to review them for you. I bought these without reading any reviews or looking at swatches because I am a huge sucker for cute packaging. I think I got lucky though these blushes are quite different to the ones I own already. Let's see how shall we?


These blushes were released in 2013 and I have had them for almost 6 months (I think Tea Rose was in one of my favourites post) but for some reason I haven't dedicated a post to these beauties. These cute little pots are colour coordinated to match the blush shade within. They come with a tiny curved brush (which I tossed). The Bourjois Blushers are paraben free which is a huge bonus and they come with a mirror in the lid of the pots which makes them great for travel or applying on the go.

Rose Tea is a soft mauve and the shade I usually go for. These mauvey shades are great as they seem to contour my face so I can actually skip contouring!

Healthy Mix is beautiful peachy/coral shade. I especially like this for Spring. It's a very young colour.

I really like the way both of these look on me and I think these would work for most skin tones. The finish of both these shades is matte but add a soft glow nonetheless. I have to add that these blushes are not crazily pigmented which would make them ideal for beginners or for those of us who tend to be a little heavy handed with blushes. It will be difficult to look like a clown with these. The pigmentation improves if you take the top layer off this baked blush, something I found out recently.

Both these blushes retail for a reasonable $7.99 and if you are in the UK, Boots usually has the 3 for 2 offer on Bourjois products. I really like these for everyday and would recommend them to makeup lovers on a budget or if you are new to makeup.

  3. They last about 8 hours on me!! I really love these for everyday especially once the top layer is taken off to get more pigmentation these take just one swipe of the brush to put on and off you go :)
