Bourjois Beauty Buys
Before I went to Spain I went on a pre holiday Boots haul, as you do! I mostly got travel miniatures (I love them!) but I also needed to replace my much loved foundation and powder from Bourjois. As it turned out I chose the perfect time to replace them as Bourjois were giving away a free goodie box if you spent over a certain amount. So I thought I would share with you what I got and my first impression of the free items.
Firstly I just wanted to rave a bit about the Healthy Mix Foundation and Healthy Balance Powder. I have been using both for over a year now and I love them. I wear the powder every single day and honestly think it is amazing. It would definitely feature in my top 5 drugstore favourites. It’s great for getting rid of shine but never looking powdery and still leaving a natural healthy glow. Also it has a little mirror which is great and is in a really compact packaging so I always carry this around in my bag.
The foundation is also really lovely and again leaves the skin with a lovely healthy glow. I don’t tend you wear tis everyday as I like something a bit lighter but in the evenings or for a special event if I wanted my skin to look flawless then I would reach for this.
So here is what I got in the free gift, a bronzer and a bronzer brush and my favourite item, the Colour Boost Lip Crayon. To be perfectly honest I haven’t really been using this bronzer too much yet. I love my Bourjous Chocolate bronzer so that is the one that I will usually reach for. Also this bronzer in my opinion is unnecessarily huge! So it isn’t really very good for carrying around in a handbag or taking away with you. The brush is okay but isn’t as soft as I would like it to be. And I already have a smaller, tapered brush which I like to use for bronzer as it can act as a contour as well.
But it is the Colour Boost Lip Crayon that I really wanted to share with you all. This is in the shade 04 Peach On The Beach, which I have heard a few beauty bloggers talking about before and have always wanted to try. I threw this last minute into my makeup bag for Spain and then ended up wearing it basically everyday!
Like the name would suggest it is a beautiful peachy pink shade. It looks great with a tan and still manages to make you look more tanned. While I’m sunbathing on holiday I don’t like to wear any makeup, especially on my skin. But I would always curl my eyelashes and then put a bit of this on my lips and would instantly feel better. This also has SPF15 so it was just perfect and a lovely glossy texture.
Hope you liked this post. And please let me know in the comments below if you have tired the Bourjois Colour Boost and if you have any other colours that you would recommend as I would love to try some more of these now! xx
