Bourjois Blushers | Ambre D'or and Rose Coup de Foudre



Left is Rose Coup de Foudre blended and swtached right is Ambre D'or

Whilst in Boots not so long ago I spotted a 3 for 2 on Bourjois products, recently they have become my absolute favourite drug store brand, so obviously I purchased a few items. Two of these were the Bourjois blushers, that I had actually never tried before! Whilst browsing they caught my eye because a few shades could easily be Chanel Joues Contraste dupes. This is the reason I picked up Ambre D'or and Rose Coup de Foudre as I thought they could easily be dupes for my beloved Chanel Reflex.

The blushers come in little round pots which match the shade of the blusher inside and have a little mirror and a brush (which I personally don't use). They are a baked formula, which makes them pretty sturdy little things. Most of the blush offerings did seem to contain shimmer, which I love but I know not everyone does. I also love how all the shades have a French name and English translation.
The formula of these is of course a baked blusher and I will be honest that they do seem very dry in texture and I can often struggle to get any blusher out without scraping at the product first. Once you do get the product onto a brush it goes onto the skin nicely, it is very pigmented and blends in really well.
First up 16 Rose Coup de Foudre or Love-Struck Rose, this one is looks quite orange corally in the pan put swatched is much more pink in tone and blends out to be more of a pink coral colour. This one is one of the only mattes.
32 Ambre D'or Golden Amber, this one is very corally coloured in the pan and contains a lot of gold coloured shimmer. Swatched it appears more bronzey in colour. It is definitely one of those suit everyone tones.
Also Bourjois actually own Chanel and I often find that if you look close enough you can find some products that are good dupes for its much more expensive sister.
