Bourjois Evening in Paris





My third and final vintage item is my Bourjois Evening in Paris Face Powder. This one is Rachel- for creamy light rachel skins.

Bourjois is a french company owned by the Werthemeir family which was launched in 1863. Jospeh-Albert Ponsin (Actor) created make up sticks in a range of colours with amusing names such as Lovesick, especially for the theatre. He also created a product to whiten the skin  to replace greasy stage make up.

I again couldnt find what year this was made in but I did find other Evening in Paris face powder products with slightly different packaging.
