Bourjois Paris Compact Powder Review

Bourjois Paris Compact Powder Review

Hi Beauties,

Today, I am reviewing a powder compact from Bourjois Paris.  I am one of those makeup-obsessed freaks who buys makeup randomly,without thinking even for a second. People like us can buy makeup anywhere and everywhere.  Our eyes become like a radar for makeup or for any new cosmetic product in the market, be it random body lotions, any new chap stick flavour or just about any cosmetic that can be applied to our face or body 🙂 .I am such a zombie that even if I have a trunk full of makeup, the moment my eyes detect a makeup counter, I run towards it like a little kid in a candy shop and look at everything as if I have seen cosmetics for the first time in my life 😉

Bourjois Paris Compact Powder Review

This product was also an instant buy like many others and to top it all, I quickly got attracted to the black and pink colour of the compact. Let’s see how impressive the product turned out to be:

Compact Powder 1

Product Description:

Bourjois Compact Powder is the must-have partner for your complexion and handbag. This stylishly decorated compact powder will give your make-up perfect hold, whilst providing a sensation of comfort thanks to its soft texture and puff applicator.

Compact Powder 2


INR 650 for 9.5 gram/0.34oz

My Take on Bourjois Paris Compact Powder:

I have been using this compact for almost 6 months now and it hasn’t been able to impress me at all.  I got it in the lightest shade which is “Beige Clair.”  I use it every time I find it near me while doing makeup, otherwise I never run to look for it while getting ready. It is not at all an essential for me because of the fact that it provides no coverage, doesn’t mattify my overactive T-zone for more than an hour, comes with a ridiculous and useless rough puff that I threw the very next day.

Compact Powder 3

For me, it is a complete failure.  My apologies to the beauties who consider Bourjois a trust-worthy brand, but sadly, this compact is a miss from them.

Compact Powder 4

Pros of Bourjois Paris Compact Powder:

  • Hmmm..hmmm.hmmm..hmmmm, yes, pretty looking compact 😐

Cons of Bourjois Paris Compact Powder:

  • Bad staying power.
  • Does not provide any coverage.
  • Mattifies for an hour at the maximum.
  • Loaded with parabens.
  • Funny smell.

IMBB Rating:


Final Verdict:

I will not recommend it to anyone and will like to advice that one should not buy anything on the basis of attractive packaging or blindly trust the brand value.
