Bourjois Lune D’or Blush Review & Swatches

ABOUT: Bourjois Little Round Blush is 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 irresistible aroma of rose scented powder.

PACKAGING: The blush has a very cute round pot packaging having similar shade as the blush.A dense dome-shaped blush brush is provided which is easy to use but I hardly use it.The shade name and number is provided at the back as well as in front of the packaging.The blush has a small round mirror at the other end.I find the packaging very girly,it is sturdy ,travel friendly and closes securely with a lock.

SHADE: This blush is a shimmery light rosy pink color with tiny gold reflects.When applied alone it is very sheer, and can be used lightly as a highlight color. The color can be built up to a more light peachy/gold color on the cheek which look very pretty.The blush has a sweet fragrance that is reminiscent to all Bourjois blushes.

MY VIEWS: The texture is smooth though not very satin soft as this is a baked blush.The shimmer present is soft and minute.It does show up on cheeks and is a bit too much for those who prefer matte blushes. It is a sheer shade but it does show up on my skin if swiped 3-4 times.It is more of a highlighter shade than blush and leaves a pearlescent glow on my face.It stays for about 5-6 hours.

The shimmer doesn’t clog pores neither accentuate them.It is baked so the upper layer gets hardened after sometime which can be renewed by scratching the top layer.

RATING: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION:I adore the shade and everything about this blush but the ever-increasing price makes it one main grudge.I highly recommend grabbing at least one shade.

 

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.
