Hello my lovelies! I am enjoying my lime cordial sitting on my sofa as I write this post. It is summer, and nowadays I am applying a lot of pink and coral shades on my cheeks. Thought of sharing one of the prettiest shades by Bourjois. It is called Rose D’or which means Golden Rose. All the Bourjois round pot blushers have a French name (alongside an English translation). I love the name of the shade. The smell is very startling, somewhat like old school make-up, if you are well acquainted with the term then I am sure you got me. It is believed to be a dupe of NARS orgasm (of course at a fraction of the price). So if you are looking for something similar to that, this will be a good pick for £7.99 and is available at any high-street drugstore.
This shade is a gorgeous pink hue with a subtle gold shimmer. I usually do not use anything very shimmery on my cheeks as it does not go with my personality, but this one is an exception. The finely granulated shimmer gives luminosity to the skin. As it is a baked blush, it is intensely pigmented, so a small amount is enough. The baked texture is easy to apply and blends flawlessly. Let’s make it a bit easier for you if you haven’t heard about baked blush. It is formed by baking coloured liquid on terracotta tiles to give the final product a creamier texture which is more vibrant and long-lasting than powder blush.
As I always say, looks and packaging is very important to me. The packaging is simple, nothing marvellous. The colour of the pot matches the shade inside so it is easier to distinguish if you have too many of them in your drawers. Overall it is sturdy, so good for travelling. It has a gold metallic lock which looks cute and is hassle free. The mirror inside is too small, I can barely see myself, use a bigger mirror to apply the blush. I don’t use the brush which comes along with the blush because I felt it is too soft to pull the nice golden shimmer onto the brush. I will insist rather go for a brush which is a bit harder. As it gets old the top layer hardens, so try to scrape the surface a bit and you are ready to use again. Give it a try and I am sure you will love all their shades.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! 🙂
Stay healthy, Stay fashionable.
