Mini Bourgois Blush: A Little Gem!





While I was devouring the aisles in Boots when I was in the UK I came across Bourjois' Mini blushes. I love these things. they come in several shades. I chose 07 and 08. They're tiny, cute and very versatile. The packaging is adorable. I use it as a cream blush and a lipstick. Its a little on the dry side so I would recommend applying it after your cheeks are well moisturized. You can use your fingertips and it blends fairly well or you can use a synthetic foundation brush or a more dense face brush, for example, MAC 109 and you get a more sheer application.

On the lips the color is a touch on the frosty side but your lips get just the right amount of pop for that kissable lip look. In the pics below I'm wearing number 07 on my cheeks and my lips. I've chosen to pair it with a clear gloss to add some dimension and make my lips look a little more full. I skipped the lipliner. What a great little item to carry around in your pocket or add inside a Christmas card. For my fellow Canadians, this little gem is the size of toonie!

Unfortunately, this time my camera and lighting were not the greatest and the pigmentation is not really captured in the pictures.

Thanks for stopping by! xxNadia

This is soooo stunning on you. I think I love it more as a lip color than a blush...even though it's made to be a blush. The color it creates on the lips is so beautiful... it makes a very pretty blush, too. The color looks great on you!! *big hugs*

@Sarah Bella, Hey Honey, thanks. The picture doesn't do the color justice. The pigmentation is great and a little goes a long way. xxN

Always wanted to try this blush, but didn't know if I should buy it, because it's expensive.
