Bourjois is a brand that I normally completely overlook. After heading to Boots to pick up some very important essentials (you know, a brand new lipstick) I found myself intensively browsing all the products that Bourjois had to offer.
I'm not going to lie, I don't know a lot about this brand, but I don't know if that they're not as publicised as other brands in the blogging world, compared to say Rimmel or Lush or it's my own ignorance sticking to what I love and know best. I'm going to say it's the latter.
I decided to buy enough essentials to be able to come away with an extra little treat, a makeup bag with a few items after I had spent a certain amount.
The Rouge Edition Velvets are a product that I'm already a fan of. After purchasing one sometime last year, it quickly became a firm favourite in my makeup bag as a nude lipstick. However, as much as I loved this lipstick and the formula, for some reason, I didn't try any more of the velvet liquid lipsticks.
The colours that I picked up are 04 Peach Club,
which like the name suggests is a beautiful peach colour and I also picked up 17 Cool Brown
a nude, brown shade. They have a range of nude colours perfect for a range of skin tones, as well as brighter and bolder colours.
The Rouge Edition Velvets are a credit to Bourjois. With their lightweight formula, matte finish and longevity, if there's one product I recommend picking up from Bourjois it's one of these.
The Bourjois Volume Glamour Push Up Mascara and the Bourjois Volume Clubbing Mascara are products that I've never used before, but ones that I think can easily rival other of my favourite high street mascaras.
There is something for everyone with the wide range of mascaras that are available from Bourjois.
I feel like a cat flick is my signature. I very rarely leave the house without black eyeliner across my eyelid. I do find it hard to find an eyeliner that has all the qualities that I'm looking for. I like eyeliner with a thin felt tip, under £10, something that won't smudge across my eyelid as the day goes on and I like the eyeliner to be a strong, dramatic black colour.
I don't normally say this, but I think this Bourjois Eyeliner
ticks all the boxes. Me purchasing this was a fluke, as it came in the free gift that I mentioned earlier, I had no intention of taking this home with me. However, I do feel like I've found a gem here.
The thin felt tip makes it easy to achieve the desired cat flick look, with the product itself being extremely pigmented. It's rapidly become a firm favourite as I've been looking for a while for an eyeliner that is exactly what I need.
