Name: Little Round Pot Blush
From Bourjois’s website:
Softer and more velvety thanks to a new pearl effect and a skilful blend of pigments. The baked texture is transformed on the skin into a light ultra-fine pressed powder, that is easy to apply and blends impeccably. One stroke of the brush reveals the irresistable aroma of rose scented powder.
What I liked:
– beautiful shades
– very pigmented
– gives a beautiful and glowy flushed look
– the price
What I didn’t like:
– it hardens
– the packaging
– the brush
Bourjois Little Round Pot Blush is available in 12 shades that have three different types of finishes: shimmery, matte and pearly. The shade I have is Rose D’Or, which is a beautiful true, rosy pink with golden shimmers that aren’t over the top.
The texture is nice and soft, although slightly gritty in some shades. It goes on smoothly and is easy to blend. The color is quite pigmented and you only need a little to get a nice flushed look. But you have to be careful when applying it, as it is very easy to go overboard with this. It has a lovely rose scent and lasts for most of the day. I rarely need to do any touch-ups.
Because the blush is baked and not pressed, it tends to harden after a while, but this problem can easily be resolved by removing the top layer with a toothbrush. That way, the blush is just as good as new.
The blushes come in a plastic, round domed shaped container. The color of the packaging matches that of the blush inside so it’s easy to identify the shade you want. The blush comes with a mirror and a brush, both of which are useless. The mirror is just too tiny. And while I like the curved shape of the brush, which fits the contour of your cheeks, the bristles are just too thin and too hard and they scratched my face a bit. And there isn’t a compartment for the brush, so it just sits on top of the blush.
Overall, I really love this blush. It’s very pigmented and a little goes a long way. It gives my cheeks a beautiful flushed look that last almost all day. However, it hardens after a while and the inbuilt mirror and brush are useless.
