Bourjois cream blushes

Bourjois has really been stepping up their makeup game the last years and for summer, they’ve created a beautiful collection to create natural, but statement looks! I find cream blushes one of the best ways to create a very natural makeup, by using a light, colorful blush color.

These blushes contain papaver extracts, apricot extracts and mango butter extracts for comfort, shine and softness. The blushes come in four colors: 01 Nude Velvet, 02 Healthy Glow, 03 Rose tender and 04 Sweet Cherry. I tried out the first three colors.

I have to admit that I hadn’t tried that many cream blushes before, but I can say that I really like these cream blushes. I apply them with my fingers or with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.

I really love these blushes, they are perfect for a nice, healthy looking, flushed cheek with just a tiny amount of shimmer. These blushes feel very creamy, but dry to a powder finish once applied on the skin. 

Here you can see how color 01 is applied on my skin. It doesn't show up as good as I'd like it to, but you can notice a slight wash of color and a sheen on the top of my cheekbones. THAT'S the blush!

I feel like they also stain a bit, which I find very convenient because I NEED longlasting beauty products since I’m not a 'reapply' kind of girl. A big thumbs up for this product!

These blushes are available in the Belgian drugstores since this month and retail for €10.99 for 2.5 grams or 0.088 oz.

What is your favorite cream blush product?



  1. Likey likey! I love cream blushes. I think e.l.f. has great budgetproof cream blushes, and the new Dior Cream Cheek blushes are on top of my wish list as well.

    1. I've only tried the powder blushes from e.l.f., I didn't know their cream blushes are nice as well! I've been wanting to try the Bobbi Brown ones or the Stila Color Convertibles for forever, but I find it nice to start out my cream blush expedition with these Bourjois ones :)
