Bourjois Little Round Pot Cream Blush


Bourjois Little Round Pot Cream Blushes* – £7.99
available from Boots, Superdrug and ASOS

Sometimes you just can’t beat the finish and ease of a cream blush. There is something so pleasing about popping a touch of colour on your cheeks and instantly giving them a natural glow and buildable coverage. Bourjois’ infamous little round pots of blusher, first created over 150 years ago, have had a makeover and a new, cream blush collection has arrived – four cream-to-powder shades with a velvety texture that blends seamlessly onto your skin.

Well, these new cream blushes are absolutely lovely. The colour pay-off is initially quite soft and subtle, but can be easily built up and the consistency is light and silky, so a dream to apply. Once the blush has been blended into the skin it transforms to a powdery finish but still maintains a slight glow and iridescence. The range of shades available skip through peachy, soft pink and rich berry tones so there is hopefully a little pot for everyone, every occasion and every skin tone. My favourite is definitely 03. Rose Tender which is a soft pink with a pearly, baby doll finish that instantly perks up the skin and leaves you with a rosy glow. 01. Nude Velvet is incredibly soft and light on the skin but works wonders as a lip colour for a peachy pop of colour. These have swiftly become one of my favourite cream blush products, alongside my Stila convertible collection, and are ridiculously handy to throw in your handbag with their compact design and built in mirror. Oh and I am pleased to say that the little blush pots’ legendary rose scent lives on in these new cream blushes!

    I've never used a cream blush apart from when on holiday, as at home I tend to wear more powdered products and the cream usually leaves a weird smudge.

    You've done a great review so I may give it a try with a lighter base underneath.

    Thankyou! Lily x

    I have just bought all 4 of these, I'm a sucker for a cream blush so when I saw these get released, it was an inevitable purchase! I love them all, they're all so beautiful in their right xx

    You are so right sometimes you cannot beat the simplicity of cream blush. It goes on smooth and looks beautiful. I love the shade that you picked out because it really compliments your skin. You look gorgeous.

    I bought no.2 after reading your blog and it's definitely my favourite blush. Might try the others for a change. Thanks for the tip.
