Bourjois 16 Rose Coup De Foundre

If you read the mini haul which I posted yesterday (link) you'll have seen this pretty little blusher. 
I bought this whilst in a rush and actually thought it was more peach toned (peachy blushes are my current obsession) so was initially a little disappointed. I'm very pale, naturally and have quite rosy cheeks (euck) so it's not a colour I would have normally bought however it's actually a lot more flattering than I originally thought! It looks especially lovely when I'm wearing fake tan! 
As for the little brush which is included, I hate it. I normally use my own brushes as I don't like using little ones but I gave it a go for the purpose of this review and it's horrible! The bristles are so scratchy and really irritated my skin! The mirror is a little pointless because it's so small however I'm sure it'll come in handy!
There is a lot of glitter to this blush, so it's not for everyone however this isn't too obvious on the face, it translates to more of a shimmer.
One thing I noticed about these blushes is that few (if any, I didn't see a single one) are matte, I'd love to see some pretty matte shades being brought out.
The blush is £7.49 and available from Boots and Superdrug. I bought this as part of a 3 for 2 offer. 


  1. I have had this blush for a few months now.But sadly,the surface has gone very hard and cuz of that, my blush brush brush doesn't pick up much color. Is that the case with all baked shadows/blushes or just bourjois ones?

  2. Ooh, I'm not sure tbh. I've only experienced that with eye shadows :/ has it been exposed to any water? Because I find sometimes that can harden products, otherwise I'm not sure but I can try and find out for you, if you like? x

  3. I just read reviews on makeup alley for Bourjois blushes.Some people have complained they harden over time.Don't know why though.I have never used a wet brush. Oh well....:)The colors are really pretty.
    Here is a link if you are interested in the reviews.
    Have a great day!


  4. Oh, thank you for letting me know. I'll check out the reviews - if I find this happens with my blush I'll post about it :)
    Thank you xxx
