Peach Cheeks





Having always gone for the same pink toned blushers, I felt it was high time to try a more peachy shade, so when I spotted this little number I had to add it to my basket. The blush in question is one of the Bourjois Little Round Pot Blushers in the shade ‘Healthy Mix'.

The colour of the blush is a warm peachy coral and I would describe the finish as satin, as it contains no shimmer or glitter, but gives a subtle glow to the skin. The finish and shade of the blush mean that it creates a really healthy look (as the name would suggest), because it looks very natural, but adds warmth to the complexion.

The blush itself has a floral, fresh scent which can be detected in the pan, but this doesn’t linger on the skin for long, which I consider to be a good thing. Although this isn’t the most pigmented of products, it gives a natural flush which will suit all skin tones, perhaps aside from very dark skins, as it may not show up too well without needing to pile on multiple layers.

I love the packaging of the Bourjois Pot Blushes, as the casing is the exact shade of the blush inside, and there is also a tiny mirror in the lid, which could be used in desperate mirror-less situations. Although the pot is quite small, Bourjois have managed to sneak a tiny applicator inside, but does anyone find any use for these teeny doll sized brushes?

Which peach toned blushes would you recommend?

  5. I've used many Bourjois eyeshadows in the past but never the blushes... I should give this a try I love a peach blush at the moment.

  9. Love the color of the blush! I also tend to buy/wear pink blushes but during the summer peach shades are so beautiful and go great with light bronzer. I've never tried Healthy Mix but I definitely have to check it out!

  10. Love the colour of that blush! The fact it's not majorly pigmented may be a downside to some but would be perfect to me as my pale skin means blush always shows up a bit too well on me. Hopefully it wouldn't be the case with this one!

    I love your blog! Great photography and style! I just followed you :)

  11. This is such a lovely colour, and as you said, very natural and healthy looking! Although I also find no use for the silly little brushes...
    I'm loving the Bourjois Cream Blush in 02 - it's a really pretty peachy pink, perfect for summer.
