REVIEW: Bourjois Cendre De Brune Blush



Review of Bourjois Blush in Cendre De Brune

Guest Post By: Pranali

A Round domed baked blush enclosed in a fat round pot, with a tiny mirror above. If there were any words to describe this blush, I think cuteness will top the list.
I was in search of a Pink Bush that would suit Indian skintones. And I found this Dusty or Mauvish Pink Color. The Color is as Pink to Indian skintone as Bubblegum Pink is to white skin.
The Packaging is decent and travel friendly, though the brush and mirror is of no use. Baked Blushes are of high intensity and can be used wet and dry. And the best part about this blush is, it makes a wonderful cheek tint which looks as good as natural flush. For Richer Skintones, using wet  will add more intensity to the color, make it appropriate Pink for rich skintones. I went a little weird and applied it as a Lip tint as well, topped with salve. But it only adds tint to the lips, naturally.
There is little fall out when the brush frictionally touches the dome, but it blends effortlessly. And the result is No powdery look.

The staying power is not so great, 4 hours and it is done. But if used wet it is not more than 5 hours.
It has a baby powder fragrance to it, which is very pleasant. I have been using it for long, maybe a year or more. I am using it almost once a week, for natural looks, No makeup looks. And the shape of the dome is intact though a little flat.

Price of Bourjois Cendre De Brune Blush

INR 575/-, when I bought it back in 2012.

The Goods of Bourjois Cendre De Brune Blush

1) A Pink for Indian Skintone
2) No Powdery business. It totally adapt with the skin texture without looking powdery.
3) Packaging is a show, for all the flaunters.
4) Pleasant floral fragrance
5) Decent staying power of 4 hours.
6) Calculating its value, I think it is  amazing for the quality and quantity.

The Bad of Bourjois Cendre De Brune Blush

1) The provided brush is of no use for blush.
2) Availability across all Bourjois Counters.
3) The blush hardens with time. So it is necessary to scrape off the surface to reveal new layer.

A Dusty Pink for Healthy Flush, for Indian Skintones. If you are looking for The Pink, seek no more. This will work wonders with Wheatish to Medium skintones.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
