Bourjois Java Rice Loose Powder Review

 Now I am a sucker for anything that has a vintage, pastel or retro design towards it so when I came across this product I was instantly impressed and had to purchase it.
This has been floating around on peoples blogs recently because Bourjois have reinvented their first bestseller: Java rice powder for their 150th birthday! it has such an impressive, vintage packaging.

What I found really great about this powder was the twisty compartment inside to lock the loose powder in stopping it from going everywhere. I thought this was really handy and avoids a lot of mess!


The powder itself smells really nice a kind of sweet scent which is unusual but nonetheless it allows applying it to feel a lot more pleasant. 

I dab a tiny bit on the back of my hand and take one of my brushes either RealTechniques blush brush or Ecotools version. Dab it in then apply on my cheekbones in an up down motion and patting it all around my cheekbones.

 I treat this as a highlighter which I am sure a lot of other people do too because it has the loose highlight feel to it.

I then just give my whole face a quick run over with it too to brighten everywhere up, my cheek bones are the main area I apply this though.

It is such an amazing product inside and outside! it leaves a lovely feel to my skin and just adds the bit extra to my cheeks. It isn't too bold and blends in really nicely to create a natural finish. It just adds definition to your face which I think is important at times.


Also for those who don't have a brow highlighter it makes a great alternative!

I love highlighters in general and this one competes with my S&G luminizing powder.

Definitely give this a go if you can get your hands on it as it is truly amazing!

  2. This looks really good and I haven't seen any poor reviews on it. Do you ever use it as setting powder?

    1. No I think its too sheer for an actual powder, I think it would be ok to top up during the day with it though x
