New From Bourjois

How stunning are the new Bourjois releases? They landed just in time for Christmas and most importantly - all the products are very affordable. That's why I love good quality drugstore brands. You don't spend a fortune, but you still get amazing results!

The eyeshadow quads are ideal for those who like smokey eye looks, but struggle to find the right mixture of colours. Each quartet comes with four beautifully pigmented shades, most of them very easy to apply and blend. Only the lightest colours tend to be a little bit chalky, but as you can see on the swatch below, the pigmentation is still there. These lasted on my lids all day with a primer. Perfect! There are 8 colour options to choose from. My favourite is definitely 02 Over Rose, with gorgeous beige, rosy, brown and chocolate tones. 

Top: 05 Good Nude, 01 Grey & Night. Bottom: 04 Rock This Khaki, 02 Over Rose.

I adore cream eyeshadows, so every new shade or new formula release makes me very excited. The newest additions to Bourjois Color Edition range are 08 Marron Givre and 07 Flocon d'or. I have Marron Givre and it is a beautiful dark brown with silver sparkle. It's easy to blend and lasts on the lids all day without creasing. The other shade is a lovely sparkly gold.

I am not the biggest fan of felt tip liners, especially with a large tip, but this one is quite easy to use and as the name suggests- ultra black. You can create thin and thick lines with the large angled tip and some will find it absolutely foolproof. I prefer the Bourjois Liner Pinceau though - it's simply the best!

I am a massive fan of  Bourjois mascaras, as they seem to get them right every time! The new Volume 1 Seconde Ultra Black Mascara gives tons of length and volume with just one coat and it doesn't clump or smudge. I also love the black and gold packaging. 

I am trying to get back to painting my nails regularly, as I love the look of freshly painted nails. 1 seconde nail polishes by Bourjois are definitely in my top 3 when it comes to application and formula, as the brush is absolutely perfect! It does all the work for you and it literally glides onto the nail, making manicure time a real pleasure! I just wish they dried a bit quicker. The newest shades in the collection are Grey To Meet You (dark grey) and Glitterizer (clear top coat with big chunks of silver glitter). How fab are the names? Rouge In Style (the red) would be a perfect option for the festive season as well! 

Edit: The red and the silver polishes are on offer for Christmas....3 for 2 in Superdrug and you will receive the red or silver polish free.

They also released a new shade of their incredible Rouge Edition Velvet, called Happy Nude Year. I need it in my life asap, along with the other nude shade I have been meaning to pick up for ages -Nude-ist (always sold out) and the Flocon d'or cream eye shadow. I know... I am a makeup addict :) haha.

Available from Superdrug and Boots (currently on a 3 for 2 offer).
