Bourjois little round pots of blush are one of those products I find hard to pass up on,
it all started in Secondary School (High School if you aren't British) when I used to save up
my pocket money and then my wages when I got a little older and would splurge a little
in Superdrug. I see young girls doing the same thing at the weekend now and think lord
I hope you don't become as make-up obsessed as I have.
Anyway over the years I have tried many shades and if shimmer based blushes are your thing
then you must head in the direction of these little round pots!

Bourjois blushes have always (or as long as I can remember) came presented within small round
plastic pots that are coloured to match the shade include and feature a small brush and mirror.
As the product is baked I can't really say I have encountered any problems over the years
and deem both the packaging and blush fairly robust but I do find it very hard to recall what
shade I have tested over the years as the shades are all in French and as it's not my first language
the shade names don't tend to resonate within my memory.

For a while now I have been looking for shades that will see out the last few weeks of Summer
but be seasonably appropriate for the Autumn too, which is easier said than done!
When I stumbled across Ambre D'Or I felt like I had struck gold, it is a warm blend of 
pink, orange and brown with a brighten golden sheen that encapsulates the warmth of both seasons.
Applied and swatched this does lean slightly orange and is very warm in tone so certain skin tones
may struggle with this shade but it does pack enough pigmentation for most skin tones to be able to 
wear as a blush - deep shades may find it a little stark.

Unlike other baked blushes I do find the formula of the Bourjois blushes to be a little dry
but the pigmentation is there and picks up well on a brush, applies with ease and blends out
with minimal effort and works well with oily skin types in terms of lasting power.
Although a shimmer based product it does not highlight my enlarged pores
but I do feel I should point out that the blushes have a strong rose scent that some may dislike.
It terms of lasting power I find the Bourjois formula to wear for around 8-9 hours before
I notice a little fading.

Do you have any favourite Bourjois Blush shades?

A few have mentioned in the comments that over time these do seem to turn and become a little
more hard in texture, to resolve this some what I use a small chunk of (clean) sandpaper
and run it around the blush to shave off the top layer...wasteful yes
but at least that way you can continue using the product.
