Excellent product! The main thing I loved about this product was the pigmentation. I'm very wary of how much blusher I use because there's nothing worse than girls walking around with massively powdery, bright pink cheeks but I found that because the pigmentation is so strong, you only need a small amount (avoiding looking overly powdery). I also found that this meant it stayed on all day even if my other makeup had budged.
I also loved the colour. When I first saw the colour tester in the shop I thought it would be far too bright, especially because I'm quite fair, but the blue tones in the colour help to stop it looking too bright. More of a nice blendable rosy glow. Another thing I loved is that its matte! There are so many blushes around that are gorgeous colours but they are full of sparkles and shimmers which for me is too much for daytime.
On a packaging/presentation note, I liked the shape and the size of the product because although it is small, I find it lasts for ages so I think the size is about right for the price. I do think the brush is a little unnecessary, it's a strange size and I found that the bristles fell out very easily. I would much rather have more product and no brush or a lower price and no brush but that is my only criticism as a whole.
So, to summarise:
*Nice matte finish
I got this on a whim. I dont need it as I have over 40 blushes and would take me 3 lifetimesto finish them all. But lately ive been going back to drugstore brands becuase Im having a disliking to my normal brands as they just seem to be churning out the same things named differently or in a different packaging (MAC!) or reformulating, making the new formulation more expensive while giving you kess product! (Bobbi Brown).
Anyway like I said I dont really need this but it looks good very blendable for a drugstore brand.
I previously owned one other Bourjois blush but literally threw it away as I found that the ones that have shimmer are very difficult to get any producy on the actual brush.
I also dont like the packaging as after a while the lid breaks off. The brush is just ok I never use the ones given but I would may be use this one on the go as normally the blusher brushes are two small and you end up with alot of product on one area but this brush is wide.
I also hate that in the UK we pay almost the same for a DS brand as what you would pay for theequivalent in the US for mid end to hi such as MAC.
I have said I would buy again but in reality will never hit the pan like most of my blushers.
- Lovely, 'dolly' pink colour
- Looks great on fair skin
- Unique, cute packaging
- Buildable coverage
- A little pricey
- Small compact
- Cheapish packaging
This blush is super pigmented! A little really does go a long way with this product. 'Cendre de Rose Brune' is a rosy pink and has a matte finish. Despite being matte, it was quite easy to blend and gave my cheeks a nice healthy "flushed" look. It can be a little "clownish" if you apply too much so do be careful with the amount you use. It also looks amazing on lighter skintones since a friend of mine brought the same blush and pulls off this colour quite well. The only downside with Bourjois blushes is the packaging. Small pan size makes it harder to sweep brush across evenly, but other than that, they are good value for money.
A good buy! Nice and cheap but still great quality! A nice easy light rose coloured blush. great for everyday wear in the office or on the weekend :) I usually wear MAC springfling, but that can be a bit shimmery, this give me a nice break from anything too exciting.
My love affair with Bourjois blush continues! I love everything about them, from the froufrou compacts to the addictive scent. I really wanted this shade, since it is one of the original ones, dating back about 100 years (although I'm sure they've tinkered with the formula since then!). This is just a lovely, classic, natural pink that would look good on nearly anyone. I use this sparingly on my ultra-pale self, but the blush is pigmented enough to be used by someone much darker. If you already have a classic pink color in your blush collection, you don't really "need" this one...but it's so beautiful to have!
Love this blush it is a highly pigmented pink which is completely matte without shimmer. Only negative is that the packaging was broken when i bought it and it won't stay closed
Beautiful rose pink color - not too bright and not too pale, it shows up as a natural looking flush on my NC20 skin and makes me look like I'm really blushing - pretty for Winter and Spring! I like the rose scent as I can only smell it while I'm applying it and then it dissipates. This blush is very pigmented so I use a light hand and blend well. I like the minimalistic packaging with the domed blush - looks really cute and high-end for a drugstore blush. :]
love this, i think it looks striking on pale skin, for a very dolly look. just one sweep on the cheeks and you look like you're blushing/walked in from the cold.
smell is gorgeous, that kind of vintage rose scent - love it, sometimes i just take it out to smell hahaha. brush isn't too bad, but replace it with a better one if you can.
the lid of mine hasn't broken off yet, either, and it's always jostled around in my bag/purse/makeup pouch, which is a plus.
EDIT: The powder DOME itself can fall out of the box! A bit annoying.
gorgeous colour but irritated my skin and broke me out :(
