Bourjois Cream Blush 01 Nude Velvet

nedelja, november 10, 2013


This might just be my new favourite (cream) blush. Well, at least I'm certain it will be my most worn blush. Met Maybelline's Dream Blush in Peach (my most worn blush) cousin. Both are cream blushes which I prefer to powder ones because they are so easy and quick to apply. They have a very similar texture, except Bourjois one feels like it has more silicones in it, the finish is basically identical and even the colour is very similar. The main differences are that Bourjois comes in a better packaging, is smaller and has a mirror. I love my Maybelline blush, I actually own two colours, but the pot is not the best packaging when it comes to application, even though they feel well made.
The texture of Bourjois blush is a pleasure to use. It has a nicely pigmented, creamy and smooth formula that is easy to apply and blend. I tend to apply it with fingers because it's quickest, but brushes work as well. The finish is somewhere between satin and matte.

01 Nude Velvet is a light peach shade with some pink in it. It's pinker than Maybelline's Peach, however, I hardly notice the difference of the cheeks. It's a very natural looking blush and my favourite type of colour to wear on an every day basis.


It lasts the same as any other blush on my cheeks and I already said that no blush except Coralista lasts particularly long on me. The colour just fades from my cheek and disappears in a few hours (does that happen to anyone else?).

I tried to capture it on my cheeks, but no matter how much I applied, my camera wouldn't cooperate. This is the best I got. It's actually quite pigmented and shows up well on my pale skin. I'm also wearing it on the lips. It feels very dry as a lip colour and it looks peachy-nude.


Mine is from ASOS for 7€ (with a discount), while the regular price is about 10 €. As far as I'm aware these aren't and won't be available in Slovenia (I sincerely hope I'm wrong about the last part). I'm not sure about other countries apart from that it's available in UK and France. It's pretty much the same story as with Maybelline cream blushes.

This cream blush is fantastic and pretty much an improvement of my previous favourite. A better and more travel friendly packaging does it for me, even though it's 2 € more expensive than Maybelline's. If you happen to stumble upon them, I'd recommend both. I might get shade 03 Rose Tender as well.

Have a great day!

  1. Joj res je lep, nežen... Mene kremni sicer sploh ne prepričajo... :/

    1. Jaz jih pa raje uporabljam kot v kamnu, zato ker se enostavneje in hitreje nanašajo. Pa še čopičev ne mažem :)

  2. Zelo lep odtenek:) Po mojem okusu:) Drugače jaz tudi raje uporabljam v kamnu, ker se mi zdi, da mi dlje ostanejo na obrazu, kot kremni. :)

    1. Jaz ne opazim razlike, se pa bolj obdržijo če dam kremnega spodaj in čez še v kamnu :)

  4. Imam tega 03 in je eden izmed najbolj uporabljenih blushev. Nimam pa težav, da bi izginil iz mojih lic, je pa res, da tega niti nisem pazila pri skoraj nobenem blushu. Definitivno bom naročila še tega, res je krasen odtenek :)

    1. Ma na meni blushi enostavno ne zdržijo. Mogoče bi morala dat kakšen primer spodaj...

    1. Meni so tudi kremni blushi zakon, samo kaj ko jih pri nas praktično ni. Od Illamasque sploh še nisem nič preizkusila, morda pa bom enkrat kakšen kremni blush :)

  6. Meni pa tile zdržijo neverjetno dolgo. Cel dan. Pa nimam ravno suhe kože.

    Ko že govorimo tudi o tem, da teh blushev pri nas ne bo, enako je glede najnovejšega Bourjoisovega Happy Light pudera, ki je na blogih zelo pohvaljen. Če bo katero zanimalo in bo omenjeni puder iskala v naših drogerijah, ga žal ne bo. Kar kopiram odgovor uvoznika za B., ki so mi ga posredovali iz DM-a:" Mi ga nismo lansirali, ker nam ni bil ponujen. Principal se je odločil, da ga na našem trgu ne bo lansiral, prav tako na Hrvaškem, v Bosni....Principal se vedno odloči, v kateri državi se kaj lansira, tudi odtenke izdelkov nam določijo oni. Na nas je potem ali stvar vzamemo ali ne. Če pa nam izdelka niti ne ponudijo, ga ne moremo niti naročiti. Bourjois blagovna znamka ima zelo širok asortiman, je pa prilagojen na regijo in to nam določi Principal."

    1. Srečnica :)

      Hvala za tale odgovor :). Verjetno še katero zanima zakaj ne dobimo določenih stvari. Me zanima v čem je finta, da niti Happy Light ne bomo dobili, saj pudri se pa ja dobro prodajajo :/ "Prilagojen na regijo" - give me a break...

  7. Sicer nisem pristaš kremnih blushev, je pa zelo lep na tebi, meni ta odtenek verjetno ne bi pasal :/

  8. Tega sem si res želela in naročila kolegici, naj mi ga prinese iz Pariza. Potem pa je tam stal skoraj 13 evrov in sem ga preskočila. Imam tri blushe, od tega večinoma uporabljam samo dva, tako da se mi je zdelo brezveze zapravljati tako količino denarja in sem raje izbrala Shine Edition šminko/lip butter, karkoli že je. In ravno tega odtenka očitno ni bilo ven iz Francije (ne vidim ga niti v Sloveniji, niti v Avstriji, niti na Slovaškem), tako da sem imela kar srečo. :)
