Bourjois Cream Blush in Nude VelvetSaturday, August 31, 2013
For such teeny little blushes, these have caused some massive hype in the blogging world since their release! Bourjois in general have been putting out some amazing products recently, they've gone from being a brand I used to feel a bit blahh about to one that I'm really quite interested in buying from. Nude Velvet immediately appealed to me, peach blushes are my Achilles heel of the makeup world anyway and so it never takes much for me to convince myself I need another one (if there were ever some kind of zombie apocalypse I'd be good for peach blush for the next five years at least, clearly I have my priorities right!) At the moment there are four shades available; I tend to steer clear of pinks as they make me look like a flushed red tomato and so I settled on the lighter of the two peachy shades '01 Nude Velvet.' I think I'm in love.
I usually prefer standard powder blushes over creams as I'm not keen on the
The only downside to these blushes (and in all fairness it's a pretty big downside in my opinion) is the size. I could hardly believe it when I opened it up, maybe it's my own fault for assuming they'd be bigger but I'd have never have expected them to contain such a tiny amount of product- 2.5g which is hardly anything. At £8 each they're not exactly the cheapest either, although luckily I do absolutely love the product itself and would definitely buy more of them even though they're expensive for what they are. I have my eye on 'Healthy Glow' next which is a darker shade of peach.
