BOURJOIS REINVENTS ITS ICONIC JAVA RICE POWDER FROM 1879!
Bourjois celebrated its 150th Anniversary this year. Wow! They reinvented a vintage edition of its first historical best-seller - 2 million sold each year in the early 20th century!
Java Rice Powder:
~ A delicately scented feather-light powder that lights up and smoothes complexion in one step. ~ Its radiant and velvety finish immediately creates a youthful glow.
~ One translucent shade is universal and lights up all skin tones.
I adore the packaging. At first, I thought the white was a sticker, but it's not. It's printed on.
It has a swivel thingy so you can close the holes, like the Flower Perfection Powder
It's a light rose pink powder with fine silver & gold shimmer. When blended, it looks translucent. It is scented and smells amazing! I love how silky it feels.

I wore it in my previous LOTD. See it makes my skin look more shiny. You can spot some of the shimmer under my eyes and nose bridge. More pics here
For me, it is like a collector's item, because I won't be using it much - maybe as a highlighter only on high points of my face and not all over. I might mix it with my regular loose powder sometimes. For those who look for ways to luminous glowy complexion, this powder might be a quick and easy way there.
It's best to apply it not as a setting powder, but as a thin veil over another matte loose powder.
Price ~ £9.99 | Rs.1019 from Superdrug.
My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 3.5/5.
It's a Limited Edition.
Hope you all are enjoying your Saturday, and not in a foul mood like I am. My blog editor is changing how my pics look when I upload them. Delayed all my planned posts. I don't know how these will appear on your screen. On mine, they are darker, and I had to remove one where it made my arm look all bruised. Grr. Okay, I'll go mop the house and do laundry to cool down.
