I have spoke about these blushes ALOT and use them pretty much everyday without fail, so I thought even though they are old for me I will do a review on them.....I am talking about Bourjois Little Blush Pots, The 3 shades I have are Lilas D'or, Rose Frisson and Rose D'or.
|(L-R) 'Rose Frisson' 'Rose D'or' & 'Lilas D'or' p.s excuse the battered pots i've had these since last year!|
Rose Frisson is a beautiful Rose colour, not too pink and not too red just that lovely natural flushed shade,
Rose D'or is the essential bright 'Barbie Pink' It is a lovely really girlie shade and so easy to wear as it's not too much of an overpowering shade it also has tiny flecks of gold which highlight and really give the skin a radiant glow, perfect for summer.
Finally Lilas D'or is more of a pink-peach toned shade with golden flecks like Rose D'or but it isn't as pink or bright as that, I also find the golden flecks show up more in this than in Rose D'or
I have been using them all for quite a while and I don't know if it's because they are baked blushes after a while they seem to harden and you literally cannot pick the colour up so I had to scratch the surface of them all with a clean lash comb, which is slightly annoying since these retail at £7.99 each for a tiny 2.5g (MAC blushes are over double that size and remember Bourjois is meant to be a drugstore brand)
Here are some swatches of them all -

Even they still aren't as pigmented as they were when I first got them and because it is abit of an hassle I dont know if I will be repurchasing all of them which is a shame as I do like their lasting power and the shades and they way they look when they're ok, I had the same problem with an eyeshadow trio from Bourjois but they have since reformulated their eyeshadow pots. Oh and you probabaly already know this but this little flimsy brush they come with - bin it! It is useless, really and thats coming from everyone I have heard speak about these not just myself, I do like the cute pots and fact they have a mirror and beware of the smell its sort of 'old lady rose perfume' but to be honest I love it (*hangs head in shame*)
Anyone else tried these?
