The Bourjois Cream Blush

Hey My Lovelies!

As you may know if you follow me on any social networking platform, I have very important exams at the moment and thus haven't been able to blog (or do anything else, for that matter!) for rather a long time. However, I really wanted to tell you about a very exciting product set to be released into the highstreet (boots, superdrug and on May 15th, and is already available in Selfridges and online!

Now, the first baked powder blush by Bourjois was created in 1868.....and the product I want to inform you of is the new Bourjois Cream Blush! Now I am INCREDIBLY excited about this as I do love my cream blushes  - they leave my skin looking fresh and glowing but without looking caked on or over-done - just natural! This blush also uses a 'cream-powder' technology - I've never tried a product with this effect, but it claims to 'transform in contact with the skin' - exciting!

The blush will come in 4 shades:

  • 01 - Nude Velvet - a light and delicate peach with a matte finish for a subtle effect
  • 02 - Healthy Glow - a vibrant and slightly pearly apricot pink for an immediate healthy glow effect
  • 03 - a soft pink with a pearly finish for a baby doll complexion
  • 04 - Sweet Cherry - a deep matte brown-pink for a fresh, outdoor complexion
Personally, I feel that Bourjois have managed to produce shades and finishes to suit every skin tone - in only 4 colours - so a big round of applause to them! Personally I love the sound of 01 and 02 especially.

I've been having some skin/breakout troubles at the moment and I always think that's a bit of a vicious circle - as when I wear make up, it doesn't improve, but to feel more confident, I want to wear make-up! However this new blush is enriched with poppy extracts for more comfortable skin, apricot extracts for a healthy glow and mango extracts for a soft touch - yay! It also has a mirror which will be perfect for on-the-go touch ups over the summer.

Are you excited about this product? Which shade do you have your eye on? Have you ever tried a product like this before? Please let me know in the comments.
