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!
