Yes it happened to me again. I read a ton of online hype, saw some very cute packaging and I went for the purchase. So here we have it my own two cents of Bourjois Java Rice Loose Powder.
First off this history behind this product is astonishing, Java Rice Powder was Bourjois claim to fame product way back when. Recently Bourjois reformulated using modern technology and just in time for the 150th birthday. As a tribute to the original this product has been released in a vintage light green packaging. I must say I just adore looking at this classic looking pot.
I feel like this is a type of makeup I can see a character from The Great Gatsby wearing… random fact!
Yes, this product is cute and yes it has some history to it, but how it the actual product? Smooth. The first thing you will notice is how smooth this product is. The texture actually reminds me a lot of the Dior Rosy Glow product I recently reviewed. I find this powder incredibly wearable highlight and this has been my go to highlight for work. The subtle pink shimmers highlight effectively but from a distance translate to a natural healthy glow. I have loved this since the first day I got it and highly recommend it to people in search of that natural sheen or makeup beginners who want a simple highlight color.
And if you don’t need a natural highlight there’s nothing wrong with just staring at this beauty!
I got my Java Rice Powder at Shopper’s Drugmart in the Decades of beauty gift set which retails for $60.
