Bourjois Cream Blush in 04 Sweet Cherry

So whilst I was in France I ordered myself a cheeky delivery from Boots so that I'd have some treats waiting for me when I got home! I saw that Bourjois had a 3 for 2 offer on and also a free pair of sunglasses was on offer! I didn't own a lot of bourjois make up..literally a blusher... so I figured I'd give them a go.



    


Bourjois are known for their little pot blushes so I was a little bit excited when I saw my fellow  tweeting about their new cream ones. Therefore this was the first item I added to my basket during the spree! I chose the cream blush in shade 04 which is Sweet Cherry. I would say that it is in no way a cherry colour - it's more of a deep rose - so what an odd name to give it! I was initially very surprised by how tiny the product is and how little you get. The packaging is obviously very cute - something I think that Bourjois pride themselves on, but it's very lightweight. If I didn't know Bourjois as a brand, I think I'd be put off by the teeny size of the pot. You are provided with 2.5g of product. This seems tiny to me... I'm kinda a cream blush newbie though so I don't know if it's just that a little goes a long way so you need less than an average powder blush...? I'm not sure!

The consistency truly is cream to powder, as it blush describes itself to be. It reminds me a lot of 
Benefit's Some Kinda Gorgeous in it's texture. However, Bourjois say that this blush is "incredibly blendable" and I wish I agreed. I first attempted to apply this blush with my RT Contour Brush - which I've been using a lot for blush lately - and it literally sank into the blush and appeared to be nowhere to be seen when it had dried! Applying it with fingers does aid this and as the blush is highly pigmented you don't need too much, but I can't help but feel a bit disappointed with the blendability of this product. (Is blendability even a word?!)


Something I am very fond of is the colour of this blush. Like I said, it's a deep rose colour and it looks lovely with a soft make up look. It lasts pretty well too. I think that it's the cream to powder quality that gives this longevity. 

I am reasonably pleased that I purchased this but I'm not over the moon and it's definitely not a favourite. Have you tried the Bourjois cream blushes? What do you think to them?

Lots of love, lovelies xxx

  1. I felt a little let down by this product too, it's going to be in my 'products not worth the hype' post when I finally get round to doing it. Need a few more products before its written though.

    Glad I wasn't the only one blown away by this product. And you're right, it's a lot smaller than I expected it to be.
