Bourjois Cream Blush in 'Nude Velvet' | Review

When it comes to cream blushers I'm somewhat of a novice. In fact, I've only ever tried one other cream blush prior to this: Revlon's cream blush in 'pinched' (which I really did not get along with). Needless to say I wasn't sold on the whole cream blush idea. 
How many times do you think I will write the words 'cream blush' in this post? Current count: 5.

I'm still not completely sold on the cream blush concept (given the chance I'd choose powder blush any day) but I've got to admit that Bourjois cream blushers really do give my powder blushers a run for their money. Is that a known phrase to everyone or only to those that live in Cumbria?

The formula is SO nice. It glides on seamlessly and it's easily blended with the use of a brush or your fingertips (fuss free = good in my book). Applied lightly it provides a nice wash of colour to the cheeks but it can be easily 'built up' for a more intense look. As I said earlier I'm somewhat of a cream blush novice, and I think it's pretty impossible to apply too much of this. Don't worry cream blush newbies - you will not end up looking like a clown! 

'Cream blush' word count: 9.
