Review & Swatches: Bourjois Little Round Pot Cream Blush in 01 Nude Velvet and 03 Rose Tender

Bourjois have made a cream blush!  This is excellent news, as cream blush can be difficult to find on the high street, and they're brilliant for easy application and long wear.  Packaged in the iconic little round pot, they're held together with magnets and come in four natural shades.

The texture is light and silky, and I think they're best described as cream-to-powder blushes.  They don't have any stickiness or greasiness to the finish, setting down to a velvety finish which has a subtle sheen.  These two shades are 01 Nude Velvet, and 03 Rose Tender.

Swatched, they're not wildly different shades.  Nude Velvet is a peachy nude shade, and Rose Tender is slightly more pink.  The swatches here are done with a well loaded fingertip - the colours themselves are actually very sheer.

Very sheer, yes, but totally buildable.  The above photo shows around three layers built up slowly, which has given me a lovely soft natural flush.  I can imagine, though, that darker skintones may find that they need to build up the blush a fair bit to get it to show up.  For us pale skins, though, it's perfect.

The Little Round Pot cream blushes were originally a Selfridges exclusive (amazing to think that Bourjois is so in demand Selfridges get the exclusive on a new launch!) and are now in stores nationwide as of the 15th May.  They'll cost £7.99, very reasonable for such a lovely texture.
