I did a little happy dance when I caught sight of the brand spanking new Borjouis cream blushers at the Spring/Summer launch last week. A long time devotee to the original pot powder blushers, I was absolutely over the moon to have the new cream blushers in my clutches, and after some serious testing I am delighted to report that they do not disappoint.
(L-R) - 01 Nude Velvet (matte peach),
- 02 Healthy Glow (pearly pink),
- 03 Rose Tender (soft pink),
- 04 Sweet (deep matte brown-pink).
Borjouis Cream Blush 03 Rose Tender
The blush melts into the skin feeling comfortable on the skin and leaving a truly healthy glow as it transforms from a cream to a powder on contact with the skin. It lasts all day even on my oily skin - no touch ups required. Plus it's actually dewy not 'shimmery' or even worse 'glittery' which means it doesn't accentuate pores or blemishes and there's no Twilight-esque effect in daylight - they each have a super, super natural finish.
In addition to the beautiful dewy finish and buildable pop of colour, the new Borjois cream blushers have a few skin benefits too! The poppy and apricot extracts work to ensure glowing and comfortable skin, whilst the mango extracts provide softness.
My favourite, unsurprisingly, is 03 Rose Tender - a soft pink with a pearly finish. I cannot wait to see how these look as with a tan (hurry up Summer)!
Bourjois Cream Blushes costs £7.99 and launch exclusively in Selfridges and Selfridges.com on May 8th and will be rolling out nationwide into Boots, Superdrug and Asos.com on the 15th May.
