Bourjois Délice De Poudre Bronzing Powder

Hey all,

Firstly, i want to say my heart goes out to all those affected by the 2 explosions in Boston yesterday and the Earthquake in India and Iran. I will be keeping everyone affected in my mind.

This week i shall be reviewing Bourjois Délice de poundre bronzing powder. There was a lot of hype for this bronzer so I decided to try it out. I bought this bronzer at Superdrug for £6.99, which is an alright price.

My favourite thing about this bronzing powder is the packaging. It comes in a little cute cardboard book-like packaging which has a magnetic close, making it thin and convenient for travelling. I have this bronzer in the ’52’ shade. However, one down side of this packaging is that most of it is in French, so I have no idea if i have the paler or darker one.

Inside, there is a good amount of the bronzer. The bronzer is in the style of a chocolate bar and it smells just like chocolate.

The color is not orangey at all and it makes your face looks nice and goldeny brown as there are specks of glitter in it, but dont worry, if youre not a fan of glitter because it is not obvious once applied onto your face. I personally find that this bronzer is too dark for my skin during the winter, however in the summer it is just perfect.

The product is perfect for contouring and if you have darker skin, it might take quite a lot of building in order to actually see the product on my skin. Even though on somedays, i think this shade is a little too dark for my skin, it is perfect for contouring and gives me a nice healthy glow without being too obvious. It also blends perfectly with whatever blusher Im using.

Will i buy it again?

I really enjoy using this bronzer because it is one of the best drugstore bronzers I have bought, I might even go as far as to say it is better than some of the high end bronzers I have used in the past. I would recommend and buy again.

Hope you have found this review useful!

Have/do you use the this bronzer?? Is there any other good drug store bronzer to recommend to me?

BodyShop All-In-One Blushes Review

Hey all,

I hope you guys had a great relaxing warm weekend, i certainly didnt as the weather in London has been freezing these past few days! Anyways, Im back again and this week i shall be reviewing my new fav of the week blushes, both of them are from Bodyshop.

I walked into Bodyshop a few weeks ago, saw this range of blushes and just couldnt walk out of the store without purchasing any.

I ended up buying 2 blushes, Macaroon and Flush respectively. Both blushes can be bought in store or online on Bodyshop’s website for £8.00.

Flush is a more mid-tone peachy pink shade which i think will suit both fair and dark skins. It also contains more shimmer compared to Macaroon, which is a more matte coral shade.

Both blushes are very pigmented, perhaps due to its Marula Oil content, giving the blushes great color pay-off.

The staying power is also pretty good, it stays on my cheeks throughout the day without any touch-up.  It is also unscented, but thats not really a big deal-breaker for me.

The blush is in a dome-like shape case which is light, making it easy to pop into your purse or makeup bag whenever traveling. Even though the pots are not that big, compared to other drugstore brands, it does last a relatively long time.

Heres a swatch of each blush..

As you can see, the Flush comes up more stronger and bolder than the Macaroon. Flush would be good for a night out or a dinner party, however i personally think it might be too bold for a day wear on a pale skin. Currently, ive been using Macaroon more often than Flush as i feel that the coral matte shade is perfect for spring and give a subtle rosiness to the cheeks. When summer comes and i become tanner (hopefully), i will probably be using more of the Flush shade.

Both blushes are soft and smooth in texture as you can expect from Bodyshop, and the pigment is not as daunting as seen in the pan, both can be build up with more layers.

Will i buy it again?

I will probably try out their other shades, but i do love Bodyshop’s blushes and will recommend this to anyone who wants a good product at a reasonable price.

Hope you have found this review useful!

Have you used Bodyshop’s blusher?? if yes, what are your favourite shades?
