Beauty Blush Playground no. 2: Bourjois Little Round Pot of Blush in 33 Lilas D’or

Welcome beauties to the second blush playground post! Today I have for you a Bourjois blusher in no. 33 Lilas D’or. This blusher is a medium rose pink shade with quite a bit of gold and red shimmer. It’s the most shimmery Bourjois blush that I own and to be honest I was a little worried about wearing it. Luckily, on your cheeks it doesn’t look glittery per se but rather adds a gorgeous rosey-glow sheen to the skin. I think this is the perfect blush to wear in winter/autumn because when there’s less sun (so gloomier, greyer days) the sheen won’t become super reflective. It’s a gorgeous mid-toned pink, darker than many of the other pink blushers that I own and who knew it would work so well on winter, pale and shallow skin!

This blush actually reminds me of Orgasm by Nars except that Orgasm is a peachy pink shade with gold shimmer, while Lilas D’or is a straight up medium rose pink with gold and red shimmer (the red just reflects the pink tones in the blush). It gives my cheeks a proper ‘flushed’ look – as if I’ve been running in the crisp air or as if I had a mojito or two (except that this leaves a ‘prettier’ look behind haha).

Now I packed on this blush so that it would be visable in photos, yet for some reason while I do look ‘flushed’ the blusher didn’t show quite as I had hoped (I might have to play around with my camera settings), however I hope you can see what a lovely rosey colour it is. I wasn’t doing much today – in fact I felt really really blah so this blusher really ‘woke’ me up this rainy morning! After applying lip balm I also swatched my finger into the blusher and then dabbed the blush onto my lips (this works brilliantly). You can most definitely multi-task using this blush!

I love that all Bourjois blushers smell like a rosey/sweet scented baby powder (I know that’s an odd description – but that’s what they smell like to me!). I love that this colour has depth to it – it really does remind me of roses! πŸ™‚ Bourjois blushes retail for $20 a pop in Aus, which isn’t to bad for a treat!

For some rosey inspiration I found this gorgeous graffiti by Vickie Emms:

  1. Looks pretty! Looks like it could be a blush and a highlighter together

    • It’s a great shade! And your right, you definitely don’t need to wear a highlighter along with this blush (that would be shimmer overkill then)! *waves*

      • πŸ™‚ it reminds me somewhat of milanis baked blushes

      • Look wise totally! We don’t have Milani here in Aus πŸ™ I have seen there blush range online though (just in pictures) and they see to have pretty vibrant colours in their line to! Their range may also be bigger?

      • Awe dang that kind of stinks. And I am not sure how different their range of colors are

  2. The blush looks so natural on you! I absolutely love the color πŸ™‚

    • Thank you! πŸ™‚ Who would have thought huh? Especially since it looks darker in the pan!
