Today I have a review about the Bourjois cream blush in Nude Velvet 01. I received this in the one off British Beauty Blogger Box and it retails for £7.99 (but is currently on sale for £5.99 in Boots). I was really excited to receive this because I had heard great reviews from some of the more well known bloggers. However as you'll see from this review, it didn't live up to the hype for me.
I love the cute little round packaging. It is really light and thin, making it perfect for make up bags.
I was surprised that despite being so small it had a cute little mirror making it perfect for on the go.
My biggest problem with the blusher is the shade which I know is pretty unfair because it came in a beauty box and shade selection is very much luck of the draw. I got the lightest shade which I can imagine would look so pretty and natural on fairer skin but on my medium skin it just doesn't show up. As you can see with the swatch below it looks quite ashy on my skintone and it took a lot of building up to even get it to show up.
All in all, I wasn't a huge fan. It might have been different had I received another colour but like I said, I wasn't keen on the formula either.
What do you think about cream to powder blushers?
Till next time...Toodles! :)
