Bourjois Paris Poudre De Riz De Java


Real talk, I bought this because...LOOK AT THAT PACKAGING. It's too cute. It's so fancy, I feel so fancy. It's just too much for me. 

Bourjois Poudre de Riz de Java is a loose face powder that is a reinvention of one of their most popular products from 1879.  The original Bourjois Java Rice Powder was designed to lighten the skin and leave it smooth and super silky-soft. It was insanely popular all over the world and in 1897 they sold around 2 million boxes worldwide.

Now we all know, I really love the packaging. It has the same label that was used back in 1897, which I love. It feels like a true classic. The product promises to “light up and smooth the complexion in one step”. It has a light texture and it smells absolutely gorgeous. It has a rose scent which is rare in a setting powder, usually they tend to be scentless. The formula seems to be a bit sparkly when it's in the pot, but on the face you can't really see any sparkle.

This powder definitely does brighten my skin. It's got quite a semi-matte finish that feels light and airy on the skin. It also keeps my foundation in place extremely well so I have started to use it as my go-to setting powder. I really do like this product but have read that it is unfortunately a limited edition for Bourjois' 150th Anniversary, which is sort of annoying because I do not ever want to part with this power. I suppose I'm going to have to buy loads of pots and keep them stored away so I can use it forever - maybe.
