Here is everything you need to know about the Bourjois Silk Edition Compact Powder. I have photos and swatches for you.
Now this packaging with the 360 rotating mirror is a serious winner for me. I first loved this swivel style with the gorgeous Bourjois Delice de Soleil Bronzing Powder and then the Bourjois 8 in 1 BB Cream Compact.
It is genius packaging and it makes the product so easy to use.
Bourjois Silk Edition Compact Powder Formulation
The texture of Silk Edition is inspired by silk and it has been created to melt into the skin leaving an undetectable finish. Bourjois are dubbing this a new generation powder which can be layered without fear of cakiness in terms of appearance or feel on the skin.
It promises to:
- Even out blemishes and dark spots
- Deliver a matte finish for 8 hours
- Boost brightness
- Blur pores and blemishes and smooth fine lines with soft focus technology
The Bourjois Silk Edition Compact Powder comes with a soft sponge that reinforces the smoothing effect of the powder itself and also, along with the slimline packaging and super handy mirror, makes it a brilliant handbag essential.
Bourjois Silk Edition Compact Powder Shades
The Silk Edition powder comes in 6 tone on tone shades:
- 51 Porcelaine
- 52 Vanille
- 53 Beige Dore
- 54 Beige Rose
- 55 Miel Dore
- 56 Hale
Bourjois Silk Edition Compact Powder Swatches
I have shades 52 Vanille, 53 Beige Dore and 54 Beige Rose:
The texture is super soft and silky and it feels really smoothing when applied to the skin. I’ve tried 52 Vanille on and it definitely has an immediate blurring effect on pores which I absolutely love – I need to try it out in daylight to properly assess the finish on the skin. I’m usually 52 in Bourjois but I have stopped using fake tan on my face so I may need 51 Porcelaine. I will see.
It’s a gorgeous powder and has the softness of a loose powder with all the convenience of a handy pressed product with an amazing mirror. I will update more when I can.
