Allegedly, Shoppers Drug Mart now carries Bourjois, although I have yet to see it in-store. On the Bourjois website for Canada, the selection of products available here definitely does not include the entire line. So when I saw the giant Bourjois section in Boots in the UK, including all 12 Little Round Pot Blushes (only 7 are sold in Canada) I may have gotten a little carried away. In my defense, in Canada they retail for $19 CND, and in the UK they are only 7.99 pounds, or about $13 CND. And look how cute they are…
The little round “pots” are the perfect size and have a mirror. I really like that the pots are colour coded to match the blush shade inside. The blushes are the baked, dome type of blushes. I am a fan of baked blushes. According to the Bourjois website, they have been making these little baked blushers for over 150 years and they were the world’s first powder blush. They are scented, with what Bourjois describes as a “rose” scent. It’s likely a love it or hate it thing. You don’t notice it once applied and so far it hasn’t irritated my skin at all. All of the shades have the word “rose” in the name:
#34 Rose d’Or (Golden Rose) – A bright pink with gold flecks of shimmer. One of their most popular shades. This is the only one out of the five I purchased that is also available in Canada.
#40 Rose The (Rose Tea) – A nearly matte, deeper plum-pink
#54 Rose Frisson (Frosted Rose) – A slightly shimmery, light pink leaning towards coral
#15 Rose Eclat (Radiant Rose) – A matte, reddish-toned pink. Fairly similar to Rose Tea, but more red than plum.
#16 Rose Coup de Foudre (Love-struck Rose) – A bright, shimmery coral.
All of these blushes work well for fair skin. I can’t decide on my favourite. If you can find them at your Shoppers Drug Mart I would check them out.
