BOURJOIS CLAIMS
The baked texture transforms when applied to the skin into an ultra-fine pressed powder, which is easy to apply and blends impeccably. One stroke of the brush reveals the irresistible aroma of the rose scented powder.

PRICE & AVAILABILITY
€10.49 | ASOS
$13.28 | ASOS
£7.49 | Boots
This blush is a part of my infamous Sephora clearance sale purchases (now I think I should have posted a haul about it too). I do not remember the exact retail price in Netherlands but I got at a 40% discount.

THE BASICS
Bourjois Little Round Pot is a domed shaped baked blush available in 12 colours with 2.5g of product in each. I am reviewing the shade Rose D’Or 34.

MY OPINION
Ever since I saw a couple of Bourjois blushes swatched over at Sleep and Water, I lusted after them. Sadly Bourjois is not available in Germany. When I spotted it at Sephora Netherlands I could have gotten crazy, but with so much more to buy I only picked one - Rose d’Or.

When I bought it I didn’t even use it for two weeks, not that I didn’t like it, I just forgot about it. And ladies…when I DID use it..I was blown away by the colour. A stunning peachy pink blush with gold shimmer. It MAY be similar to NARS Orgasm, which I haven’t tried.

It’s very nicely pigmented, the shimmer in it is very fine that leaves a beautiful glow. And it stays on my face pretty long.  I really like the buttery smooth texture which blends so nicely. I can’t tell you how much I am in love with this colour nowadays. This blush has once again ignited my love for shimmer blushes that I made a cheeky Dainty Doll Blush in Orange County Girl purchase a few days back. Expect a Fragrance Direct haul sometime soon. ;)

Bourjois Little Round Pot Blush comes with a tiny brush and an attached mirror. Very travel-friendly! The brush is useless but in an emergency situation one can work with it.

The blush however has a floral powdery scent which does not linger on the skin. And oh I have heard baked blushes tend to harden over time, so probably this one will too.

  6. The shade is really similar to NARS Orgasm, I think the pink is a bit more cooler-toned though. However the gold shimmer is very much like Orgasm. These blushes are fabulously pigmented when first opened, but have an annoying knack of hardening with time, making it very difficult to pick up pigment. A slightly spiky brush helps in that respect. Thanks for the mention in your post as well! :)
