Bourjois Java Rice Powder


It's no secret that I have become one of Bourjois biggest fans this year, continuing to launch fantastic products that all carry fabulous quality for the super reasonable price tags that they hold, it's hard not to be impressed with them and I've grown very fond of the drug store brand.

Re-launched just last month was Bourjois Poudre de Riz de Java Loose Powder* and honestly, I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to share my thoughts on this fantastic radiant boosting powder.

First launched back in the late nineteenth century, it was an international success and with Bourjois celebrating their 150th anniversary this year, they have re-released it using todays technology with all its scented, fine and pearly Pink glory.

Far from the girl that used to despise anything that even resembled a slight shimmer, I've recently been loving anything with a subtle amount of sparkle to input back in some radiance to my normally, quite matte look. This very finely milled powder carries a soft shimmer that once on the skin, although it looks pearly Pink, sits translucent, looking really natural and glowing. If I'm being completely honest, I'm not too keen on the scent of the powder, as I find it quite strong, but with the pretty radiance it puts back onto my skin, I can get past that easily.

Versatile enough to be used both on its own and to set your make up, this loose powder is perfect at adding an overall radiance to the face. I like to use a duo fibre brush to sweep it over my forehead, down my nose and over my cheeks, just to put a little bit of a glow into my base. 

Available nationwide in Boots, Superdrug and Selfridges, this incredibly soft to the touch powder costs £9.99.

Are you a fan of Bourjois? Will you be picking up a Java Rice Powder?

  4. I would never have guessed this was a Bourjois product from the dandy packaging, it looks like something much more high end. I'll definitely be picking one of these up, Bourjois can do no wrong for me at the moment, they're just going from one great release to the next and I'm loving everything so far!

  11. I'm not too sure I'd like the product if it has a pink tint to it, but I'd buy this for the packaging alone! It's just so pretty! xx

  21. I SO want to try this product! But I think £9.99 is kinda pricey for a drugstore powder/highlighter... Not sure whether to but it or not! :)
