Review | Bourjois Paris Délice De Poudre Duo

I really am attracted to products that achieve more than one thing in a product, hence my love of the Urban Decay Flushed Palette as everything is possible with that bad boy!
This is relatively new from Bourijois, I'm unsure when it came out but when I saw it, I was so intrigued by it that I had to have it. 
I've really been into multi purpose products lately as when you're going away, it's best to keep the make up case to a minimum as you don't want to take a lot of luggage with you. 
First off I want to comment that I don't think that it smells like chocolate... There's definitely a smell but I don't get the chocolate smell! I like it nether the less but I just wanted to put that out there! I do I think that the Bronzer is a great colour though, it reminds me of Rimmel London's Natural Bronzer 022 Sun Bronze which is a lovely tan colour, not muddy at all which is quite an all round natural colour that matches a lot of skin tones. 
The highlighter comes off lovely on the brush and transfers brilliantly on the skin but when I tried to swatch it with my finger, it didn't come off as nice as I would have hoped, hense the poor swatch in the picture. The highlighter is a champagne shade which really compliments the Bronzer beautifully. Neither of the powders come off chalky, they are both very soft in texture which makes them blendable and i cannot not tell you how much I love finding a good high street product that can rival high end ones that are 3x the price. 
I think the only downside to this is the size. I can fit my contour and highlighter brush into it but that's because they have relatively small heads on them. If someone wants to get an all over bronze colour then it'll be difficult as you can't fit a big brush in there which is a shame. I think that the packaging is cute though, very unique and when you start accumulating such a large collection like myself, it's nice to have something different in there! 
This duo is £7.99 and considering you're getting two products in one packaging, it makes it an even bigger bargain and lets be honest, who doesn't love an absolute bargain.

If anyone has this in their collection then I would love to see their review on it!
