After my post expressing my lust for certain blusher products yesterday, I thought I would write a review on my favourite blusher of my make-up bag currently.
That is Bourjois Round Pot Blusher in Rose D'Or (which translates into 'Golden Rose') which I picked up for £2 from Boots after hearing that they were on the website for much less than their usual £7.99 price-tag. I was desperate for a new blusher after deciding I was bored of my usual lip stain knowing I wanted a powder blush - so this came in perfect timing! Wondering if this great deal was in-store, I trundled along to Boots and asked if they scanned at £2 - no. So the lady from Boots explained to me she could order some in free of charge, which I jumped at! Unfortunately, I was put on the spot and this particular Boots did not have a huge selection I could look at swatches of. Out of the ones I liked, only one was available. So I ordered 3 of them as it was 3 for 2!
When I received them, I was very excited! It had the limited edition packaging that looked oh so pretty and is much more exciting than their regular pots. I really could not wait to try this baby out!
As you can see, Rose D'or is a deep pink blush with fine gold shimmer particles. I know a lot of people much prefer matte blushers rather than ones with a shimmer but I rather like them.I love something that gives me an effortless glow without having to add highlighter to my routine.
If you are looking for a pigmented blusher, the Bourjois Round Pot Blushers are not for you! They have very little colour pay off and do not create a lot of excess. To me, this is a positive. This blush makes it easy to prevent going overboard with the blusher on your cheeks and you can build this colour up gradually to get the depth of colour you want.
As you can see from my swatch, it is not very pigmented when I swiped my finger over it. If you cannot already tell, I have swatched it with one swipe under the much more obvious swatch (which I had built up). As you can see, the gold is rather flattering even for pale skin tones such as my own. Although I don't seem to notice too much sparkle on my face which leaves me with a subtle and natural look.
Would I recommend this? YES! I love this blush so much I want more for my collection (see my Blush Crushes here). I think I will only repurchase though when they are on offer because I do not think they are worth £7.99.
Currently, a lot of colours are being offered on Amazon for £5.33 or some colours are being offered on ASOS for £.5.50 and they ship internationally! And for all you Bourjois fans out there, they have 30% off a lot of the other products and 10% off if you enter the code 742F59ECD87E by 15th August.
