Bourjois pot blushers have been around for over 150 years and it's easy to see why. I love love love their packaging and texture, they're so pigmented and you have to be pretty careful when applying as it goes on so easily! It blends so easily and another thing I love is the lid complete with mirror and brush. The brush is actually pretty good but since this shade is a bit darker than I'd normally go for when it comes to blush, I have to be really light otherwise I get a blush line and have to blend very harshly.

I last bought one around 2-3 years ago and I loved it then but I was nowhere near hitting pan but it was way past its' recommended use by time so I thought for hygenic purposes it's best to throw it away. So when I spotted they was on a recent buy one get one half price offer in Superdrug.. I had to re-purchase it. The shade 34 Rose d'Or is one that I've seen reviewed several times and it looked so pretty so I thought it was a safe option. I was right too! It's beautiful and I definitely think it's now in my top 3 blushers!

The shade is lovely and a natural sort of glow. It reminds me a little bit of the Sleek Rose Gold (anybody else agree..?) and looks quite shimmery in the pan. It transfers a little, but it doesn't look too obvious. Now a lot of people say they love the scent, I hate rose scented things but unless you dig your nose into it, it's not going to bother you.

Overall I really like this if you haven't guessed and say it's worth spending money on. Not so long back you could have bought a MAC or Illamasqua blusher for not much more than £7.49 but with everyone increasing their prices lately, this is a good cheaper alternative if you don't want to spend a lot of money on a good, pigmented blusher!

Have you tried the Bourjois Baked Blushers before? Which is your favourite shade?

  2. I've only ever tried a foundation and some loose shadows from Bourjois. Maybe I should get my act together and branch out to more of their products! xo

    1. Maybe something to add to your Christmas list hehe. It is pretty good but you have to be really careful with the brush and this shade as it's easy to just get a line around where you started to apply! x

  4. This is such a nice, soft cheek color. Reminded me instantly of Chanel's blush on due to its round shape. And btw, I love the small brush that comes with blush-ons, so handy. :)

    1. I do sometimes but when the lighting isn't great, the swatches don't come out right. I didn't have much time to photograph with this hence leaving it out. I'll think about trying to do them more when possible :) x

  12. I think it's a fab brush. I don't have a very big brush collection so love it when blushes come with a brush. Tounge twister! Haha.

  13. I own an unhealthy amount of their products, yet only have one of their blushers (there's something wrong with me lol) I've been using no.16 rose everyday since I first purchased it. Love it, and love the rest of their products too <3
