Hi Friend, today I am reviewing Bonjour Paris pearl powder. Bonjour in French means greetings like Hello, have a good day, hence this is a French brand, a sister concern under L’Oreal Paris. L’Oreal Paris has many sub brands under it and this is one of them which is not too much marketed out here so a less known one. Basically brand Bonjour is not very popular brand here. The shade I am referring is PL-04. But in cosmetic shops you will find a full range of cosmetic products of this brand. When I ran out of my face powder and badly wanted one, I was shown this particular pearl powder along with some good face powder. I found this a unique powder and hence bought it instantly. Let us know more about this product using Bonjour Paris Pearl Powder Review.
Pearl powder is kind of a universal product. You can blend it in eye shadow to add shimmer effect to the eye lids; you can also add it in blush to add that striking glittering effect to your cheeks. I even blend it little in my usual face powder to get the perfect party look. It might be added in lip color especially when we want to look special and it is best suitable for brides and girls who are into performing arts especially dance. I use this product limpidly only during wedding functions and night parties and that too blending it in my eye shadow and sometimes in my blush. The effect is just awesome. Only thing we should be careful that we should not go overboard with it or else the look will become classy. Limited usage only gives great effect.

What Bonjour Paris Pearl Powder Claims
The Bonjour Pearl Powder makes skin radiant. It claims to give a glittering effect to your look making you stand in the crowd with radiance.
My experience with Bonjour Paris Pearl Powder
The product comes in a round plastic see through box with tub type screw up cap. The pack is included with an extra perforated thin lid to avoid wastage of the powder, still wastage occurs. The Pearl powder is available in many shades. Mine is a PL-04. This shade has a tinge of gold shimmers in it. The pack lacks in providing the important information printed on it and also its not leak proof so, it is difficult to carry around. Whenever I use it I keep it tightly screwed it but still some powder spreads everywhere hence this is one major problem with its packing. Rest if used carefully, can run for long period or else leads to wastage to certain extent. The quantity is quite impressive and actually can run very long. I just loved its effects when blended with different make-up articles.
In short Bonjour Paris Pearl Powder is good only when used with different make-up items but in moderation, if we go overboard with it, then the whole look may look crass and strict no-no for day time functions or else the shine will create a damn disappointing look.
