Bourjois Little Round Pot Blusher.


When searching for a new blusher, I saw the famous Bourjois Little Round Pot Blusher on special offer, so I grabbed one and thought I may as well give it a go, especially as it doesn't contain any parabens. Although just a drugstore blusher which is very reasonably priced, it's actually been around for over 150 years! 

The pot comes in a really cute little round pot (hence the name), and inside is a mirror and curved brush which is really handy for if you're out and about. I got shade 74 Rose Amber, which is a really deep peachy pink. I much prefer darker pink blushes to brighter lighter ones, whether it suits my skintone or not I'm not entirely sure, but I like how they look on my skin and that's what matters to me.


I actually find it quite difficult to apply the blusher with the brush it comes with, I much prefer using my eco-tools blusher brush which gives a much softer and more natural finish for me. The blusher goes on smoothly and is really soft on the skin, but doesn't last very well, which is the only downfall of this blusher for me. The blusher smells really lovely - it's a very fresh rose scent, and it has the added bonus of being free from parabens!

You can build the blusher up to create a darker shade, and if you do put too much on, just simply put some powder over the top. 

Have you tried the Bourjois blusher? What's your favourite blusher?

  1. I had a Bourjois blush once, I found that it kind of dried out somehow and became unpigmented after a few months :(

  2. I have one of their blushes. It is such good pigmentation and stay on pretty good. I haven't used that for a while. But now after reading your post, reminds me to go look for it and start using it again :)

  3. This a lovely shape! I love that it comes with a brush too, it's a shame it's not great quality, but still handy if you're desperate I guess!

    1. Yes, I find it just gives too 'harsh' an edge on it, so when out and about I just soften it with my fingers :)
