Wow, my first beauty post. I never realized how much work beauty bloggers put into taking pictures and swatches of their haul. I had the worse time with the swatches. I couldn't get my arm far enough for the camera to focus. Haha.
Anyhow, so here are the blushes. They are both the same color, I just couldn't resist the cute Paris stickers so I had to buy both. The one on right has the Eifel Tower and the one on the left has a picture of the Opera National de Paris. The color is called Rose D'Or, a very pretty bright pink with gold undertones. I think this must be a special edition packaging because the rest of my purchases did not look so cute :)
I love the cute packaging from Bourjois. The compact comes with a mirror and a cute little brush that fits perfectly inside.

Recently, Lola from Lola's Secret Beauty Blog told me that Bourjois is Chanel's baby. I had never realized that but once she pointed it out, I could immediately see the similarities. I thought just for fun, I would take pictures of them side by side.
The Chanel blush I have pictured here is #67 Rose Tourbillon. Side by side it's definitely brighter and instead of gold flecks, this blush has silver and pink flecks. However, swatched - they look REALLY similar.

Both blushes (Bourjois and Chanel) are heavily perfumed, which I'm not a huge fan of, but I definitely prefer the smell of Chanel's Rose Tourbillion. The Bourjois blush smells like perfume my grandmother used to wear, so I'm definitely not a fan. I guess that's why I rarely use it ;) The smell does not go away after I apply the blush.
They are both definitely made in France at the same place (92299 Neuilly sure Seine) - which I thought was pretty cool.
