Every morning for the past few weeks I have been driving to work whilst listening to Sali Hughes’ ‘Pretty Iconic’ audiobook. Sali shares, what in her opinion are the most iconic beauty products of all time, from those that give you oodles of nostalgia to the absolute staples.
I have always noted how pretty the Bourjois ‘Little Round Pot Blushers‘ were in their timeless packaging, but as a no blush gal I never felt there was much reason to add one to my beauty bag. I have since been converted (all thanks to Sali).
With my dalliance with blush beginning, I popped out to Boots and bought the shade ’16 Rose Coupe De Foudre’ translated into English as ‘Love Struck Rose’ which is a pale, peachy shade with a very fine shimmer that don’t be scared, does not translate prominently onto the skin. The shade provides a healthy, luminous glow that looks like your cheeks have been pinched….Or you’re in love.
This iconic blush has been on the market for almost 150 years and has become synonymous with the brands place in iconic make-up history. The baked blush transcends onto the skin as an ultra fine powder and gives off a gorgeous scent that I can only describe as a vintage, powdery perfume. The little pot is pretty sweet too and has a very satisfying magnetic snap closure.
I apply the blush with a blusher brush from The Body Shop buffing into the apples of my cheeks and being sure to not apply too high or too low (a technique used in theatre to age a character!) The lasting power is pretty good too whilst feeling comfortable on the skin.
Which is your favourite shade from the Bourjois ‘Little Round Pot Blush’ range?
