Bourjois Cream Blush 02 & 03

Everyone seems to have a little round pot of Bourjois within their stash somewhere – it could be to do with the fact they’ve been around for a long time, constantly improving and keeping up to date with trends while being really affordable. They created the first baked blush 150 years ago, and now, next week sees the release of their Cream Blush – 4 gorgeous little pots of blush which transform from cream to powder on the skin.

I have been testing out shades 02 and 03. 02 is the shade I would automatically go for – I do love a coral cheek. ‘Healthy Glow’ is it’s name, and it’s a pretty good name as I think that’s just what it gives you. Once it’s on the skin, a slight amount of pearly shimmer shows through, giving a nice dimension to where the blush has been applied. It’s a beautiful apricot blush which will get thorough use from me.

Both of the Bourjois Cream Blush’s that I tried are really easily buildable. I have been using my finger to apply, over the top of my foundation – patting it on then blending it up – they are so easy to apply and the first application isn’t too heavy so you can’t go too wrong!

03 ‘Rose Tender’ is a babydoll pink colour, which gives a nice gentle flush to the cheek. Again, there is a small amount of shimmer particles which I think is nice for a powder-blush (what this has set to be) as it leaves the skin looking fresh. I have worn it quite lightly, but you could go more extreme if that’s more you’re thing!

The Cream Blush launches on 8th May in Selfridges, and 15th May at Boots, Superdrug and Asos priced at £7.99

    02 looks like such a pretty shade, I only have a few cream blushers and have never really got in to them much before so I might try these out.

    Shade 02 looks like a great summer shade, I have one from Mac which is similar but with a slight shimmer and I love it! I've never tried cream blush though so maybe this would be a good place to start!
