Review: Bourjois Blush Exclusif

When I first heard about this, I was quite excited having seen it in a couple of YouTube videos and on a few different blogs but having tried it a couple of times I'm not really impressed with it. When I got it I was surprised at how small it is and I'm not quite sure you would be able to actually get a full size brush into the product so my best bet was to apply it with my fingers. The outside of the packaging is a lovely silver metallic with a pink outlining and there is a magnetic closure to it so it quite easy to open.

The product itself is a one shade product and claims to give a 'bespoke pink'. I honestly don't think this is the case, when you swatch the blush it is actually a pinky purple dolly pink and when you apply it after a couple of minutes it just gets a little lighter. So on some level you do get a different shade but I have used this one a friend and she got the exact same colour as well. As I started to write this post, I accidentally took a chunk of product out with my nail and underneath the shade on the top is actually a lot lighter colour, a lot more milky. So it is a 'bespoke pink'? Or is it the more product you use the different shade you get? Having basically just said that it didn't work for me, I still liked the shade it gave off but I just don't think it lived up to that claim.

This product is a cream but dries to a powder finish which I agree with and actually like, I find cream blushes a little hard to work with depending on the product as some times they can be a little bit on the dry side or hard to blend. I would defiantly recommend working with this blush quickly as it can be a bit of a pain to blend.

The lasting power was okay, it lasted until about 5pm when I apply at about 7am before I needed to reapply the product. 

I'm not sure I would recommend this product even though the colour it gives off is nice and I liked the finish, I just don't think it lived up to its claims for me.

Have you tried this? What did you think?

  1. I have this blush, I don't really reach for it as Im not a cream blusher fan, but mine turned a very light milky pink, and I didn't use much! I don't think it as a huge magic difference, im thinking it may work on your temp as im always very warm, so that may be it!

  4. nice review. I've seen these in store and wondered about them. The colour looks nice, but kind of disappointing that it didn't work how it claimed.
