While I was cleaning my makeup counter, I heard a soft rattling sound as I picked up Bourjois Blush in Rose D’Or. To my surprise, the pan had detached itself from the pot. I have no idea how this happened. Perhaps the spot of glue that attached the pan to the pot had dried up over time? Thankfully, though, the blush did not crumble (it’s virtually unscathed, compared to my favourite Canmake blush which recently broke up in my makeup case). In fact, its dome is pretty much intact.
I’d always wondered if Bourjois blushes were baked, like many domed makeup colours. I’m inclined to think so, after seeing Rose D’Or’s cork base – like terracotta pans (the base for most baked makeup), cork is porous.
I eventually slid the pan back into the pot, hoping it wouldn’t crumble (it looks pretty sturdy so far). The good thing about this little incident is that I’ve rediscovered this flush-giving blush beauty – I’ve been using it consistently over the past few days and am enjoying its colour and glow! :)
