New Bourjois Beauty Bits

 Since I touched on the new Bourjois Nail products I thought we would have a quick look at their makeup product which have recently launched.

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream and Concealer- I’m not a CC Cream kinda gal, I need full coverage. I tucked this product into an acrylic draw and forgot about it until I decided to give it a go as a primer. Since then I have fallen for it, it works beautifully as a primer under a light/medium coverage foundation as it gives a radiant flawless finish. What’s most shocking is I’ve even been wearing them alone with no foundation and felt super comfortable in them. I wear foundation to hide the redness in my skin and this does it do beautifully without masking everything else. (I use shade 33 in the CC Cream)

Bourjois Happy Light Primers- These have been out for a little while now but I still haven’t got too attached. They come in a matte and a luminous version and although they are nice I wouldn’t say either makes a huge difference to my skin.

Bourjois MegaLiner- This is the first (I think) angled liquid liner I have tried and although I think it’s a nice idea I find it a little trickier to trace a line on to my eyelid. That said it makes the flick much easier and since that is always the hardest part I actually quite like this product. The best thing about it however is that it is very black and lasts all day which is something very few eyeliners are able to do on me.

Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara- Inspired by the traditional hair round brushes this mascara wand is quite a thick one. It deliver clump-free, intensely black, volumised lashes, quickly but it does take a fair bit longer than a second. I quite like Bourjois mascara’s but think this could be one of the best and although the brush is quite big I think it works particularly well on the bottom lashes.

 Bourjous Rouge Edition Velvet- I have four of these new Velvet/Matte Finish liquid Lipsticks, the pigmentation is amazing and they have some beautiful vivid colours and last really long but theres something about them that has caused me not to reach for them. Matte lip colours have been notoriously difficult for me but these apply patchy, are a little drying and have a horrible scent which reminds me of sticky tape. That said I know a lot of people love them but they’re simply not for me.

Bourjois still remains one of my favourite drugstore brands but I would love to know what you love from them in the comments. Have you tried any of the products I have mentioned?

    What shade(s) of the CC cream do you use? I'm not sure which one is the best match for me and I think our skin tones are pretty close.

    I've just put up a review of the mega liner, its so good. I really want to try the Lip Creams. Bourjois are such a good brand.

    I definitely love the look of the Rouge Edition Velvet liquid lipsticks. Smell would put me off, especially if it's bad and lingers.

      I wouldn't say it lingers but it's just so strange!

      I'm not huge on matte skin if I'm honest though but happy to hear you really like it! XX

      Haha that always sounds like a great option! X

    Bourjois foundation is so lovely – I find the quality far exceeds the price 🙂

    I have one of these Rouge Edition lipsticks and it is a bit patchy, but the finish is just amazing. Would love to try this CC cream:) I love the Healthy Mix and absolute must have is Twist Up The Volume mascara-it's just the best mascara so far for me:)

    • 3rd April 2014 / 9:49 pm

      Yeah that's my problem. Healthy Mix is an all time fave! X

      Me too, Java Rice Powder is a good 'un too XX

    • 3rd April 2014 / 9:48 pm

      Nothing?! It's a great brand and reasonably affordable, let me know if you try anything and what you think X

    I wish, wish, WISH Bourjois will be made available in Malaysia! 🙁

    I really think I need to get some of the liquid lipsticks, they look wonderful although I'm curious about the texture. I really enjoyed reading this, doll!

    I wanted to buy the liquid lipstick from Bourjois and I was looking for a review so thanks ;p though as you said they dry lips a bit, the colour range is amazing!

      That word a blush/blusher confuse me far more than it should but thank you! X

    I put myself on a spending ban so haven't bought any beauty bits in ages! Bourjois is one of the brands I'm desperate to get my mitts on though!
