I have been a big fan of Bourjois products for over 10 years now. They are an amazing drugstore brand with very unique products. I love their concealer , lip products and also their foundation (which I can no longer use since I have become sensitive to the fragrance in it 😦 ). Today I thought I’d share my thoughts on the little round pot blush in the shade Rose D’or. This is one of their iconic products and has been around for years. I really like the packaging and the name says it all…it is a little round pot blush 😀
The baked dome blush reminds me instantly of Chanel blushes and people do say that they are manufactured in the same facility. I can see the resemblance but, I couldn’t find any reliable source to back up that claim. The shade Rose D’or is a beautiful pink blush with bits of gold shimmer. This is a shade that would work for a wide variety of skin tones.
I really like the packaging of these blushes..there is no wasted space and it fits like a tiny macaroon in your makeup bag. The formula is fantastic like most baked blushes I have tried and it lasts all day with no fading. The only thing I am not too fond of is the excessive shimmer…there are days I don’t mind it and there are days when it annoys me :D. Also, the scent :(. The blush has a very strong baby powder scent which hits you the moment you open it up. It does not linger on once you have applied the blush, but the scent is pretty strong in the compact.
Overall, it is a great blush but if you are in the US, I think the Milani baked blushes are comparable and non scented. If you want to splurge, I highly recommend Laura Geller baked blushes…those are the most magical blushes I have tried 😀 The Milani blushes can be a bit bulky to travel with so the Bourjois one lands up hanging out in my travel makeup bag more often.
Have you tried the little round pot blushes from Bourjois? What are your favorite products from the brand?
Until next time, ciao!
