Joseph-Albert Ponsin was the Bourjois’s first creator; he prepared makeup and perfumes for theatre actors and actresses in the comfort of his own home. Later on, the company blossomed under the management of Monsieur Bourjois, who made it internationally known. The cosmetics broadened rapidly, and the refinement and array of makeup brought success that extended to bigger markets. His “Supplier for the Theatre” title on the makeup boxes gave way to a new tagline: “Special Manufacturer of Products for Feminine Beauty”.
More than 150 years later, Bourjois brand continues to innovate and create quality and tasteful products such as Bourjois Little Round Pot Blush, Bourjois Healthy Mix Gel Foundation, and Bourjois City Radiance Foundation; in order to allow the modern women express her inner style and personality.
