Bourjois Little Round Pot Blush 32 Ambre D'or (Swatch and Review)
Bourjoise Little Round Pot Blush 32 Ambre D'or (Swatch and Review)
i've been eyeing the little round pot blush for a while, and when it went on sale i finally picked it up after standing at the counter for half an hour deciding which colour i really wanted. at the time, i was looking for a face product with sheen/pearlescent glow to it because i wanted my face to glow. at the counter, the tester has hardened (baked products tend to do this?), when i swatched it all i got was a wash of gold shimmer and a slight tinge of orange.
i picked it up, went home.. and to my horror.. it's bloody pigmented. but i didn't regret buying this, because a pigmented product is a versatile product when used appropriately.
it comes with a brush (made of goat hair). i think is more suitable for the body as it feels kinda scratchy on my face.
in the pan, it looks like a slightly reddish orange, but not red enough to be called a coral.
concentrated swatch on the left, blended out on the right.
when applied on the hand, the colour appears to be very saturated reddish-orange. this must be applied with a light hand or it's easy to get too much colour onto my face. there are obvious gold shimmers in the product.
seen from three different angles to show the sheen and finish.
the colour is super saturated, but when applied lightly it looks extemely natural on the face. coupled with the gold shimmer, it did allow me to create a glowly look.
when the product is fresh, the powder is very soft - so soft that too much products gets transferred to the brush. however, it hardens after sometime and i'll end up with nothing no matter how hard i swirl my brush around the blush. i'll then break out either a piece of tissue paper (to wipe the surface gently) or to use an old toothbrush to break the hardened parts.
i love this blush for its colour and finish, it's something that i've never seen before in other blushes. however, there's a very strong rose scent to the product and it takes some getting used to. other than that, i also wished that the product didn't harden. although i can remedy that, it poses as a slight inconvenience.
i bought this for SGD$16 in metro.
park sora look: applied heavily on top of canmake's cream cheek. also used as an eyeshadow!
