Bourjois Cream Blush | Healthy Glow & Rose Tender





Hello Lovelies!

If you follow me on twitter you will have read all about my excitement about the releases of these products! I was so excited because if you know me you know I am a massive fan of cream blushes so for there to be a new release on the high street excited me no end! It did take me a little while to get my hands on them though, when I was in London I did see them in Boots but to be honest I wasn't blown away by them. I swatched the testers and thought they felt really horrible and chalky so I walked away empty handed. But then by the time I got home the blogosphere had completely fallen in love with them and after reading many reviews I started to think that the testers were just abit bad so I continued on my hunt for them! I eventually bit the bullet and ordered 02 Healthy Glow online, starting using it and fell in love. Less than a week later I won a Bourjois Twitter competition and I recieved 03 Rose Tender. 

Healthy Glow does exactly what it says on the tin, it literally gives you the warmest healthy glow ever. I have been on the hunt for a peach coloured cream blush for quite awhile and this is right up my street. It looks amazing with a tan! Rose Tender I save for my paler days, it gives you a lovely rose-y look (nice naming there Bourjois!) and really warms up my complexion on days where I'm not wearing any tan.  

I normally apply these blushes with my fingers and either blend using my fingers or my Real Techniques Stippling brush. They're not a traditional cream blush formula either, they're not as watery as normal cream blushes. They are said to be a cream to powder formula but once applied they're not completely matte or powdery looking. They just give the right amount of sheen on the cheeks in my opinion and they look really nice and natural!

I think I will just have to pick up the other two colours in this range! Have you tried these blushes? What are your thoughts?

  12. I have yet to get my hands on Healthy Glow. Out of all the shades, it's the one that grabs me the most. I'm a sucker for all things peachy/ light coral. I think Bourjois products are all 3 for 2 at the moment with free subglasses too. What a great deal so I think Boots can expect my visit pretty soon :) I'm thinking of purchasing it along with a Colour Boost Lip crayon in Orange Punch and the Bronzing Primer :)
