Mascara -Bourjois -Volume Glamour Push Up Mascara

foto

I love everything about this mascara. After just 1 coat, my lashes looked noticeably longer, with some curl (my lashes are straight, and I did not use an eyelash curler when I used this!). It looked better with each coat, and I applied 3 coats. It was very black! I didn't really expect to like this mascara, because I have the bourjois coupe de theatre one, and it isn't buildable at all. My lashes really look great with this mascara! I'm very pleasantly surprised! Excellent price, too!

Liquid -Bourjois -Healthy Mix Foundation

An average foundation. Colour choices are limited. It may be that I have combination skin with yellow undertones, but this foundation never seemed the right fit for me. Despite me doing a swatch tests on various colour, it looked odd on my face. Also the foundation seemed quite heavy in its consistency - skin looked overloaded /oily from the start.
Better suited to far skinned, complexions with pink/neutral undertones and with normal dry skin
The lid doesn't stay on and the nozzle from the pump didn't seem secure. Needs to be stored upright.

Lipstick -Bourjois -Rouge Velvet The Lipstick (All Colours)

Gorgeous lipstick! The creamy texture is so luxuriant, and leaves my lips nicely moisturised. The colour is vibrant and lasts well (upwards of 4-5 hours,) and doesn't tend to exaggerate dryness or chapped lips too badly. I have shade 04, 'Hip Hip Pink,' and it is a lovely warm, rich pink. It is pretty universal, it suits all my friends (what sort of wizardry is this?!) and always earns me compliments.

I tried this foundation in the shade 52 Vanilla a while ago while it was on sale. I have combination/dry skin (more dry than anything else).

It is very lightweight, which I love. In terms of coverage, it does very little to cover blemishes or redness. When combined with colour-correcting primer, this can be improved (though I would not say the results are flawless).It blends well with a brush or sponge and has a dewy, natural finish (though be warned that this effect will not last the day). I have noticed it oxidises on my face throughout the day, leaving me slightly more yellow/orange over time. Another issue is that this product struggles to last the whole work day, even with a good setting spray.

This is just what I have experienced on my skin.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!! Honestly this concealer is amazing for the quality and the PRICE. Not a lot of people know this but Bourjois was owned by Chanel For many many years. The quality and formulations are sooooo similar and even better ..at a very affordable price. Covers darkness, brightens, lasts long, consistency is light but not too watery. Also contains vitamins like the healthy mix powder. Just a wonderful product and brand. My holy grail!

Blush -Bourjois -Rose Frisson 54

This is such a cute little blush. I have very fair skin, and it is just the perfect natural rosy tint. It is non-greasy, long-lasting and lightweight, but you do need to apply a lot of product, rather heavy-handedly, for the colour to show up at all. Overall, great value and lovely results.

This product feels cool when applying...but oh god it transferred and streaky. I dont know how to make this work. If you are looking for some gloss and you already have nice looking lips, it might not be a problem. But on me this is disaster, it is not pigmented and very streaky.

Lipstick -Bourjois -Rouge Edition Souffle de Velvet 04 Ravie en Rose Sheer Matte

on 7/26/2018 10:24:00 PM

Not as keen on these as I am the matte liquid lipsticks, but these have their uses. They are essentially a semi-sheer matte lipbalm in liquid form, the colours all seem very bright & almost neon but it looks nothing like that when it's actually on the lips. They dry down to a soft velvety texture, but aren't particularly long-lasting on - frequent reapplication needed between drinking, eating etc

They're great for more natural daytime looks, and can also be used as cream blush. If matte lipsticks are too drying, and shiny lipbalms & tints are too glossy, this is a happy medium, pretty and comfortable subtle colour. I'm very fair, so I have #Ravie en rose and #VIPeach, the former a midtone pink for cooler looks and the latter a coral orange for warmer looks. I haven't tried any darker shades though.

I feel it's the staying power that lets this product down a little - especially compared to the liquid lipsticks. Wouldn't buy again since I now use a combination of other products to get a more longwearing semi-matte lip colour, but it's not a terrible product just mediocre really.


Eye Shadow -Bourjois -Intense extrait 01

Very shimmery eyeshadows with fine pearl appearance, no large glitter fragments or uneven shine. There are no matte shades, They are densely pigmented, and have a silky/satiny texture when running my finger over it. It isn't quite a cream-to-powder formula as Bourjois states, but its silky and soft texture means it smooths across the lid easily and blends easily, so when applied with a finger it is like a powder version of a cream shadow. Even, uniform and bold colour with soft blended edges. With a brush, it behaves more like the standard shimmery shadows - a more sheer, precise application which again is easily blendable with brushes too.

The shade range is limited to neutral colours - ivory, beige, coffee, grey brown.... No bright or statement colours so far. There's a little mirror hidden inside the lid, but no applicator/brush is provided like the blushers. While the lid closes securely, take care with this pot as it doesn't take much force from a fall to crack the shadow and make it all loose and crumbly. Thankfully the lid doesn't let lots of loose powder out into my bag, storage etc so even when mine broke, it didn't coat everything nearby in bling.

All in all, pretty and affordable shimmer eyeshadows which resemble satin even on the eyelids. Doesn't cost a bomb in keeping with the rest of Bourjois' product lineup, so even on a budget you can enjoy this.

I’m disappointed in this product It’s way too hyped about and the shade range is poor and the darker shades have pink undertones which is disappointing and it oxidizes . I wish they extend their shade range and have more yellowish undertones for the darker shades

Wow, this colour shot eyeshadow from Bourjois took my whole look UP a level.

I bought it from the £1 shop, so I wasn’t expecting much, I’m just always on the lookout for new colours and I actually really like mixing and matching mono eyeshadows to create a look more than using a palette.

But I was blown away by the intense colour payoff, formula, and longevity of this shimmery champagne shade. Now I want ALL of them!

Rainbow apparition is a mauve glitter nail polish with a multicolor irridescence in it! It's written on the bottle gel silicone texture. It goes well at the application, it last fairly long with a top coat. Goes perfect on lilac or mauve nail polish. Love it!

This is a great concealer for brightening the undereye area. I am NC20-25 and got the shade 51 because I really want to lighten the undereye area (I normally wear 52 for the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation). It has a wand applicator and 1 dot under each eye is enough to cover and brighten any darkness. I like the wand applicator as it makes applying quick and it's sanitary. I would definitely purchase again.

This concealer isn't great at covering blemishes or marks, but is good for illuminating the undereye area. My dark circles are really bad, they're almost purple. Used alone this won't cover them, but used over a peach colour corrector it does - with the added benefit of a subtle reflective glow. It's yellow-based in tone, helping to cancel out some of the blue tones too. I like how it isn't super reflective or shiny though, just a hint of it which makes it look more natural overall IMO.
When set with powder it lasts well enough although I do usually need to fix it and retouch 1-2 times per day. But the packaging is the size of a lipstick with a little doe foot applicator inside, so taking it with me is not a problem.

I wasn't really impressed by the Healthy Mix concealer or their blurring one, or their older CC concealer. But this works well to help conceal dark circles and look more refreshed. As Bourjois is a drugstore line the price isn't too bad either - this is a good inexpensive option for a reflective concealer that performs well.
