Bourjois Blush 11 Brun Illusion review & swatches

ABOUT:Little Round Pot blush Ultra fine and easy to blend powder blush.  Our timeless blusher has been around for almost 150 years and have made Bourjois famous worldwide thanks to its amazing texture and packaging.
The baked texture transforms when applied to the skin into an ultra-fine pressed powder, which is easy to apply and blends impeccably. One stroke of the brush reveals the irresistible aroma of the rose scented powder. Its built-in mirror and brush is perfect for touch-ups on the go!  The Little round pot blush exists in 12 shades to match all skin tones.

PRICE:rs.550 for 2.5 g. when I bought it last year which is now hiked to rs.775!!!!  :/

PACKAGING:The packaging is like other Bourjois blushes but I depotted it as I use it as a bronzer so kept it along with them!!!The blush has a small blush applicator which is hardly of any use.

SHADE: Brun Illusion is a dual purpose blush as it can be used as a blush as well as a bronzer for contouring.I generally use it be applying it for contouring and blending it upwards as a blush.It is a light brown shade with golden shimmer.The shade has slight orange tones that makes it perfect to be used as a warm blush.

MY VIEWS:The texture of the blush is smooth and non-gritty.It is easy to use and the shimmer present doesn’t clog pores neither accentuate them.It gives a beautiful warm tone to the face which is great for summers.The shade will suit all skin tones but the intensity can vary.On fair skin tones,it will show more as a bronzer and dusky skin tones can sport this as a lush as well as a bronzer!!It has a very delicate fragrance that lingers on a  few seconds and fades away.

The blush sis decently pigmented and 1-2 swipes are needed for it to show on skin. Bourjois blushes end to get dry as they are baked and he upper layer gets dry so you can just scratch it to regain the beauty of the blush.It stays for about 5-6 hours on my face.The shimmer effect lessens but the shade stays.

???????????????????????????????

RATING:3.75/5

RECOMMENDATION:I just love this blush which serves as a bronzer as well.However,the horrendous price hike is a big put off.I recommend trying this shade.
