Mini Bourjois Blush Review and Swatches

They say that good things come in small packages. So the case may be with the brand new Mini Bourjois Blush Pots.

Itty bitty ickle little blushes are sure to make you break out in a smile and go “awwwwwwwwwwwwwww….”

Mini Bourjois has plenty pleased me in the past but these new blushes take the cake. Simply adorable. Truly a cute little budget friendly option that the Muse hopes and prays will make it’s way to the US shores. As of now these little guys are only available in Europe and Asia but I’m hopeful that they’ll hit Ulta sooner or later as Ulta carries the mini line up!

Mini Bourjois Blush are housed in a tiny compact about the size of a quarter and about 3 times smaller than a standard Bourjois blush compact. Seriously, you know how tiny the regular blush pots are already so imagine how teeny tiny these cream blushes are! Awww so sweet!

I love the idea of a tiny cream blush since I don’t particularly love cream blush as it wears off very quickly on me, thus a small size is ideal for someone who doesn’t use it all that often. It’s also rather great for getting a range of colors without 1. breaking the bank and 2. worrying about them going bad as they’ll be long gone before that happens at this size!

The blushes are available in 8 shade selections but I only got three as they are virtually sold out everywhere according to Laura who runs around England locating this crap for me. Thanks Laura, the Muse loves you for answering her pleas of “get me this, get me that!” Truly an angel to deal with my diseased cosmetic hoarding.

I read on a British blog that Superdrug had a sale and these were 1 each which is around what I paid as they had some sort of discount going on that removed 2.53 from my purchase. It was like a buy one get one 50% off so not a bad deal. Each blush is normally 2.93 each but with the sale broke it down to around 2.08 each. I can’t believe I’m going to say this but I’m about to get all cheap on you here…the blushes are really small and even at the sale price of 2.08 that’s kinda costly for ‘em and paying full price of 2.93 is even worst! If you really want to wince in pain the price in Japan is 8,40 yen…ummm oh my god inflation. I’m just taking size into consideration here but the price is a tad on the high side but it does remain budget friendly as the quality is good.

The blushes are supposedly cream to powder but I don’t really feel they dry down to a powder finish. They have a hint of shimmer and pack plenty of pigment for their price tag. The size just thrills me. They are so tiny and ideal for toting around with you for quickie touch ups. I swear Mini Bourjois deserves an award for travel friendly cosmetic options. I can tuck this into my change purse if I wanted as it’s that tiny!

The shades I got were 2, 5, and 8. 8 is by far the best as it’s a really dark rose shade that’s truly lovely for Spring! 2 is a nice bronze shade and 5 is a shimmering light rose pink which is also lovely for Spring.

Aside from my minor ranting about the price I am Muse Approving them for purchase because they are just too darling not to get at least one!

If you’re wanting them look to Evil-bay UK as I’ve seen some sellers selling lots of these for decent prices. Also check on forums or MUA and ask a friendly Brit for a purchase.

Oh by the way! No FOTD’s yet but will do some soon!

Loves ‘em?

Tried them yet?

Want to?

Tell the Muse!

    i have two 01 and 04, both are pretty, but i find them a bit hard to blend, specifically the dark one and i would suggest use with a stippling brush not fingers ,i use 04 all the time cause it fit my skin perfectly and i don’t have anything like that in my collection
