Bourjois cream blush

Today's product review is from Bourjois, a brand which I have come to love over the past year or so! Although they are at the slightly higher end of the highstreet/drugstore make-up ranges - they are very affordable in comparison to high end products and from my experience are very high quality in general! It's no secret that I am huge fan of bourjois' healthy mix foundation and powder, so I'm keen to keep trying items from the brand. 

Recently, the cream blushers took the blogging world by storm - and whilst I always enjoy putting my two pence in, I thought it only right to wait the frenzy out and truly get a feel for the products before reviewing them! I picked up two shades - 02 and 03, I also wanted 01 but it was out of stock at the time. In total there are four shades, so not a vast selection but the shades available are all very much wearable. 

Packaging wise, they are very similar to the little blush pots from bourjois, they are teenie tiny round pots which are very easy to carry with you in a make-up bag! They also have a decent sized mirror inside the compact, so are excellent for touching up on the go - I find these are fab for popping on after a long day to brighten up my makeup! Although they look very small, there's a decent amount of product and the tiniest amount goes a long way when it comes to applying them.

right - 03 'rose tender'  

Healthy glow is a gorgeous natural nude/peach colour which is an absolute dream to wear in the summer! This is definitely my favourite shade of the two, I find it really brightens my whole makeup look and gives a healthy glow as the name would suggest! Rose tender is a soft, almost muted pink shade which again looks lovely on. It's one of those shades that will be suitable for any season! 

I apply these using my fingers, and as I mentioned above - you only need a tiny amount! I use the technique of just gently dabbing the product onto my cheeks and then blending out using a brush if necessary! In terms of the formula they are a cream product but once applied they finish as a powder - however still giving that slight sheen to the face.

They are a pocket friendly £7.99 and currently on 3 for 2 at boots - so an even better bargain! 

Have you tried any of these blushes? 



  1. These look lovely, good to know they're actually worth the blogger hype :) My favourite of the two is definitely Healthy Glow- most pink blushes do nothing for my huge chubby cheeks and make me look like I'm too hot lol. Fab review x


    1. They are worth the hype ... i havent stopped using healthy glow! Xo

  2. Aw these look amazing, I think rose tender is my favourite. I love cream blushes.

  3. I still need to try these! They look really good and I've swatched them a few times, but told myself I didn't need them. Maybe on payday I'll add them to my ever growing collection..
