Lots Of Love For Bourjois



My favourite brand on the high street for make-up is Bourjois. I haven't tried every single one of their products but out of them all I have, I have loved them. They aren't for everyone as I know that some people can break out after using their base products, but I personally haven't had a problem. But here are all the products I love from Bourjoisโ€ฆ

It all started when I started using the Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation, which I used nearly every day for a good 6 months straight. It can sometimes be compared to the YSL Touche Eclat Foundation, but it's a light weight foundation which has light to medium coverage, but it's also very build able. Then I tried the Healthy Mix Foundation, the original and it was love all over again. I was mostly using this in the summer as it creates a luminous glow on the skin, whereas now I prefer a semi-matte finish. Then last week, Suzie gave me the 123 Perfect CC Cream and I couldn't believe my face when I applied it. I was literally shocked at how good it applied and how it looked. I actually think I like it more than the Healthy Mix Serum! The shade range is limited in the CC Cream, as there are only 3 shades but if you can find one to match you, pick it up. Mine isn't perfect, but it gives me the look as though I have summer glow which is fading. I apply all of these bases with my RT Buffing Brush, as I haven't found anything which is better than that. The 123 CC Eye Cream isn't quite as good as the foundation base, but it is brilliant. I have nothing to compare it to, but it gives light coverage for under the eyes and keeps the under eye area hydrated for a few hours. Both of the CC Cream products come out at the end of January next year!

I posted about the Bronzing Primer in the summer, as it was a staple of mine. I apply it underneath my foundation or on top, either way it adds a lovely bronze look to the skin. I apply it using a RT Expert Face Brush, rather than a Stippling Brush as I find the Expert Face Brush picks up a little bit more product. If you're looking for a dupe for the Chanel Bronze Universal, take a look at this as it's very similar, just a little lighter in texture. Cream Blush in 01 has been a well loved product for me when I'm using a higher coverage foundation. I like blushes when they are neutral peachy shade, so this is perfect for me to add a little more dimension to my face. It's a creme to powder consistency so I find it best to apply with my ring finger, before blending with fingertips. Java Rice Powder/Universal Illuminating Powder (what even is the name of that product) is a setting powder which creates a soft focus look to the skin. Think Hourglass powder but a heck lot cheaper and in a loose powder form. I still haven't found the perfect brush to apply powder with, so pass any suggestions this way. After the creme to powder blushes, they brought out creme to powder eyeshadows, Colour Edition 24h, which I am very impressed with. I only have the shade Prune Nocturne which is a lovely deep aubergine shade, perfect for the autumn/winter months.
