Bourjois Delice De Poudre Bronzing & Highlighting Powders Swatch & Review


The Bourjois Delice De Poudre Bronzing & Highlighting Powders come packed in a very cute magnetic notebook-like packaging. Look like chocolates, which makes them simply irresistible!



Bronzing Powder ~ Filled with glints of sunshine. The shade #51 (Peaux claires/medianes) is a medium shade suitable for light to medium skin tones. It looks quite similar to Benefit Hoola in my opinion.

Highlighting Powder ~ Coated with a soft pearly layer for an instant burst of radiance. This is shade #53 which is a mixture of vanilla, pink, purple and gold in it. Can be used on the face and decolletage.



My favorite of the two is the bronzing powder. It is my first PERFECT bronzer. I'm so happy with it. Blends effortlessly and lasts all day long. I like that it's not too shimmery like most bronzers out there. Actually the shimmers or the 'glints of sunshine' don't even show unless you look very closely.

The highlighting powder, however, is not so great for the mere fact that it does not show much. You need to swipe your brush or finger a few times for the "radiance" to show. I guess this a "natural" looking highlighter from a very positive point of view. I don't regret buying it one bit because it looks and smells delicious :p

  11. I am trying to look for good bronzers and highlighters for contouring which are not so expensive. I don't seem to find the right shade. i saw this one but I thought that on my tanned face (I go swimming everyday) this will not show up. I am currently doubling a powder dark coloured eyeshadow as a bronzer. I am new to make up and I cannot really quote my MAC shade. But my veins are greenish blue. So I am warm toned I think. Read this in one of your posts. Any suggestions as to which brands will look good on me?

    Thanks in advance.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
