Bourjois Java Rice Powder

Hello Beauty Friends!

This is a powder I'd been wanting for AGES but couldn't find anywhere.

Finally I found it at my local Shoppers Drug Mart!

Bourjois Java Rice Powder

Can you believe that Bourjois has been selling this finishing powder since 1879?  They recently re-vamped it and brought out this adorable vintage packaging.

I read about it on so many beauty blogs and really wanted to try it out myself - so was pretty happy to find it.  It was $20 - so pretty average I think.  It's a loose powder that has a sifter which you can close.

I'm not crazy about the dispensing.  It is a big tricky to work with as it doesn't have a fine sieve on it.  So you have to be sure and tap off your excess powder.  I've been applying it with my MAC 134 powder brush.

It is a nice natural finish with just a hint of pink (which I assume is where they get the "brightening" claim).  It is not shimmery at all on my skin although it does have the tiniest shimmer particles.  It is fine enough that it doesn't crease my under eye concealer.  It is not drying to the skin either which is great.

Apparently this is limited edition - so be sure and grab it while you can!



  1. I absolutely love this stuff! I forgot about it for a couple weeks and rediscovered it, it works so nicely on me.
