Bourjois blush Lune D'or photos, swatches and FOTD

I think that Bourjois little pots of baked blush are incredibly cute. Lune D'or is a very pretty color, see swatches below!

Most people use this shade as a highlighter, since it is quite light and shimmery.
Being as pale as a ghost, I can actually use this as a sparkly neutral blush!
On my skin it looks light bronze peach, which is really nice to add just a hint of color when I don't want an overly bold cheek.

Swatches are shown in varying degrees of light, so you can see the beautiful luminescence of the shimmers.

And, while swatching Lune D'or, I realized it reminded me of NARS hungry heart highlighting duo. The left side of hungry heart is quite similar, it is peachy with golden shimmer. I swatched them together:

Let me start by saying I really didn't like NARS hungry heart duo at all. It was very chalky and the shimmer just sat there on my cheek looking gaudy. I ended up giving it away.

Although they are similar in color, Lune D'or has a much nicer smooth texture that adds a glow that I like much better than the chalky powdery look that hungry heart gives off.
Lune D'or is also more pigmented believe it or not, and a lot more affordable too.

My FOTD Wearing lune d'or as a blush:

What do you think of shimmery blush? Do you prefer matte?
