Bourjois just keep bringing out brilliantly formulated, brilliant value products, and their latest release is no exception!  Aqua Blush costs £8.99, and promises long lasting, sheer colour combined with a fresh gel texture.  

Presented in a pump bottle format, it's a bit scary when you first dispense it - the light, cool-feeling gel appears full of pigment, and the first time I used it I suspected I'd end up looking a bit clownish.  Thankfully, although the product looks very high pigment, it's actually pretty sheer once it's blended out on the cheeks, leaving a sheer tint which has a lovely natural finish, neither shiny nor matte.  I find it easiest to apply one cheek at a time - using half a pump of product on my ring finger, I dab my ring fingers together to transfer half the gel to my other hand, then use my ring ringer and middle finger to pat-and-blend across the apples of my cheeks and upwards along my cheekbone.

Of the two I received, Berry Nice is my favourite - it's a pinkish berry shade which is lovely and cool toned and will look just as pretty in winter as it does in the summer sun.  Cocoricorail (no, no idea) is a more coral toned colour, which looks great with a bit of bronzer or a light tan.

Overall, I couldn't be more impressed with this blush - it performs somewhat like Daniel Sandler's much more expensive Waterblush, is easy to apply, and does indeed last the whole day long.  And since it's just £8.99, you can afford a couple of colours to take you through the rest of the summer.
