Bourjois Limited Edition Vintage Blush Collection

Bourjois Vintage @ Makeup Savvy
After writing a post on Bourjois' Marron Glace eyshadow (which you can read here) my wonderful fiance bought me the entire Bourjois Vintage Collection consisting of the three blushes and the five limited edition eyeshadows. So I have decided to show you all the whole collection in two parts. The second part will be on the five eyeshadows with swatches, which I will post this coming week.

The blushes above are from L-R - Lilas d'or, Ambre d'or and Rose d'or.
These can be purchased from Bourjois @ Asos for £6.85 each.

Here is what Bourjois had to say about the Limited Edition pots - Bourjois have teamed up with the Parisian Artist and Illustrator Nathelie Lete to celebrate the brand's Parisian heritage, with a limited edition collection of its infamous Little Round Pots for eyes and cheeks called
" Rendez
-vous a Paris". Each pot in this colourful, romantic and playful collection has its own unique design celebrating famous Parisian landmarks.


Bourjois @ Makeup SavvyLilas d'or is described as ideal to give the complexion a delicate lift - personally I would say this is a good everyday blush that you can rely on to make you look awake with that added glow to the cheeks. (All swatches are at the bottom of the post)


Ambre d'or is described as lending a soft, romantic hue to your make-up - Out of the three blushes I would say this is more like a bronzer for the cheeks. It is quite shimmery so wouldn't be suitable for all over the face but would look great along the cheekbone.


Rose d'or is described as a blusher that can be used for a smoothing, contouring effect - I am not too sure about using it for contouring but this is an ideal colour for summer. A touch on the apple of your cheeks would be all you need.


Here are the swatches of the blushes - I have applied quite abit more of the product than I would normally but this is just to show the true colour of each blush. They all obviously can be applied alot lighter than this on the cheek.



Overall all three shades are lovely but my favourite has to be Rose d'or is it just a wonderful fresh pink shade that is ideal for spring/summer with abit of a tan. I don't think I need to even mention how pretty the packaging is - you can see for yourself that the illustrations are so cute and unique. Also they all have the added bonus of there amazing scent. Yes, they are all scented even the eyeshadows with a lovely floral rose fragrance!

Remember to look out for part 2 which will include the rest of the Bourjois Vintage Collection with all five eyeshadows with swatches.

Update : Afew of you asked if the Bourjois vintage collection was available in America & Canada.
I did abit of research and found ASOS deliver to both within 8 working days for $6.00.
*Also the eyeshadows are on sale at the moment so I will post the swatches of the rest of the collection on Monday*
