Chocoholics dream...

I've been meaning to put this post together for a while but somehow doing nothing seems to be taking up all my time!  It's finally come to a head though as I can't resist ripping these beauties open and getting muddy pawed any longer!
Being probably the only Beauty Blogger on the planet who hasn't tried the original Bourjois chocolate bronzer, when I stumbled across these gorgeous 'milk, white and dark chocolate' versions I figured Why not give them a go instead.  The Highlighter (white chocolate) section is perfectly milled, not too disco-bally with a pinky-golden iridescent hue.  The milk chocolate bronzer also has those very subtle glints of gold dust running through it but gives a healthy tanned glow.  The darker product known as gold bronzing powder however is filled with shimmer which makes it not so good for countour bronzing but absolutely gorgeous for adding to an already tanned face or body.  The inside of the packaging when opened out has a quick set of instructions for how to use the product which is a nice touch.  Both products are quite heavily scented however the Gold Bronzing Powder much more so than the Bronzing powder and Highlight so if that is something that you know reacts with your skin you should probably steer well clear of these.  I must add though that I have quite sensitive skin and I have enjoyed every second of using these without any adverse reactions.

And finally not forgetting the little pot of dreams in the middle that is the cream blush in 03.  This warms ever so slightly to the touch making it easily blend-able, and dries to a powdery finish which doesn't actually look powdery on the skin.  As a dry skinned girl i tend to palpitate at the thought of putting anything powdery on my face however this blush just gives a healthy muted flush without further drying my skin or doing that weird crumbly thing on contact with the skin.  To sum up! Good job Bourjois! I am very very impressed and can't wait to see what's next....
