Bourjois Cendre de Rose Brune Powder Blush

Ever wear powder blush? At all? Then this is the product that you have to thank. Before 1863, if you wanted to add a little color to your cheeks, you pretty much either did it with greasepaint (bleah) beet juice (bleah) or pinches (ow). And then Alexander Napoleon Bourjois developed powder blush for the actresses of Paris - and it didn't stay in the dressing rooms. This particular shade, Cendre de Rose Brune (about $12 with the current exchange rate), has been around since about 1879, but it doesn't look dated in the least. Instead, it's a gentle sunset rose that is making us consider getting our wallets out.
