Today I’m showing a product that sat collecting dust in my makeup drawers for years:
The Bourjois Java Rice loose Powder:
I got mine in 2013, in an anniversary set that contained a lot of products, as well as it specified that it was restricted edition:
But I assumption this product shown to be prominent since it’s now offered alone, for about $16 for a 3.5g jar.
The Java Rice Powder is one of Bourjois oldest products as well as for their 150th anniversary, they reinvented the product with an updated packaging based on the original vintage style:
A gently scented feather-light powder that lights up as well as smoothes skin tone in one step. Its radiant as well as velvety surface promptly produces a younger glow. One translucent shade is universal as well as lights up all skin tones.
I got this powder particularly to utilize as a setting powder for under my eye area because it has a tint of pink as well as a small iridescence to it. It’s excellent for highlighting however doesn’t carry out as well well in avoiding concealers from creasing.
Lately I’ve been mixing a bit of the e.l.f. HD Powder with the Bourjois to set my under eye as well as the combination has been working truly well. The e.l.f. HD Powder is essentially a truly finely milled silica powder. But, it can leave the skin looking boring as well as flat. The Bourjois powder adds a luminosity back to the skin.
I utilize the Clinique Eye shadow clean to apply this to my under eye area.
Side note: The Clinique clean is method as well huge to utilize for blending eye shadows on my eyelids. See it exactly how compares to the MAC 217. It is rather soft as well as fluffy so it’s great for utilize under the eye area.
It’s challenging to swatch powders like this. I took most likely 10 pictures trying to catch the sparkle. The e.l.f. HD Powder is like Photoshop for your face.
The Java Rice Powder is only provided in 1 shade, as well as even though Bourjois declares this is widely flattering. I don’t believe it would work on olive or dark skin tones – it would look ashy because it does have a pinky white base.
My last ditch effort to show the sparkle. Please don’t pull some CSI wizardry as well as take my fingerprint.
I have tried to use this as an around powder on my deal with however I discover it as well glowy. It’s much better served as a highlighter for targeted areas – I particularly such as this for inner eye corner as well as cupid’s bow (upper area of the lips). note that this has no oil manage properties whatsoever in spite of it being called a rice powder (unlike the cult product Palladio Rice Powder paper). I honestly don’t comprehend the name of this product… java rice? It does include rice powder, however java? But, it was named 150 years ago, so who knows…
One of the very best things going for this powder isn’t really the product itself – it’s the container that it’s housed in. It has a sifter that can swivel as well as close up the holes. I have it set to ensure that only one hole is exposed, so extremely bit product dispenses (and even then, it’s method much more than I need!) I’ll envision that I might travel with this container if I desired to. You bet that when this powder is finished, I’d reuse this jar!
To utilize this, I tilt the closed jar upside down to get a few of the product onto the lid. Whatever is on the lid is exactly how I much I requirement to set both eyes.
Another thing I truly like about this powder is purely superficial – it smells so nice! obviously the Java Rice Powder has the exact same fragrance of the bit round Pot blushes. To me, it smells soft as well as floral… “Powdery Rose” is what I’d explain it as.
