Bourjois Kissmas Holiday Look

If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know that Bourjois are one of my favourite high street makeup brands.  They have quality products for reasonable prices and they're always on offer too. 

I was really pleased to be sent some of their products in my Vox Box from Influenster. Influenster send out products from some really great brands in exchange for an honest review. You may have seen them pop up on your Twitter on Instagram feed recently as they've had some great campaigns lately with the likes of Max Factor, L'Oreal and Real Techniques.  You can  sign up to Influenster too. 


So this box of treats turned up on my doorstep and I was thrilled with it's contents. The box included one or two products that I'd tired and loved before and there were a couple of new ones to play with. 

I'll give you a little run down of what was inside...

Healthy Mix Foundation £9.99

I've tried this before and I really like it. I find the shades are slightly different throughout the Bourjois foundations due to their consistency (I assume..) For instance I am 52 in their 123 Perfect Foundation and this is 53 that that is worth noting. 

The Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation contains a blend of vitamins C, E and B5 that give skin an instant anti-fatigue effect. It's got a medium coverage and leaves a slightly dewy finish. I like that this one feels like it's keeping my skin hydrated while I wear it. Parts of my skin are slightly oily so I add a bit of powder to my forehead and it's good to go!

Healthy Mix Concealer £8.99

Just like the foundation the Healthy Mix concealer contains vitmains C, E and B5 to give your skin a radiance boost, something I definitely need in the under eye area lately! 

I never piked this up before as I thought the formula was going to be too light for my dark circles but I'm really impressed with the coverage and it lasts really well too. On my particularly tired days I use a colour corrector underneath and this is excellent on top of it.


Little round pot Blush in "Rose d'Or" £6.49

The little Round Pots have been a staple in Bourjois' collection for 150 years and I've only ever tried their eyeshadows. I love a good blusher so I was excited to try this out and immediately fell in love with the colour - it's such a pretty pink. The fine pressed powder has  a very slight shimmer to it and the packaging is so small and compact it's easy to keep in your bag. It has a slight rose scent too which I love but if that's not your thing you might want to give it a miss. 

There are 12 shades to match a variety of skin tones so I'm definitely going to be picking up a few more when the seasons change.

Rouge Velvet Lipsticks £8.99

These are the stars of the show for sure! I am in love with these! The staying power is just insane! They have a matte finish but aren't drying at all as it combines hydrating waxes with light oils along with rich pigments which give you a stunning bold colour to the lips. 


The shape of the lipstick is perfect for getting  perfect precision when applying and I'm just in awe of the shades I've been sent. They are all so perfect for Christmas time and for a touch of glamour.


from Left to Right we've got 

Brunette - A dark brown with a red undertone
Magni-fig - A deep and intense purple
Berry formidable  - A deep burgundy red which is beautiful!

Although they are long lasting they don't feel heavy, the formula is so light on the lips you barely remember you're wearing it. They don't smudge or flake, they're just brilliant. 


Volume Glamour Push-Up Mascara £8.99

I've reviewed this mascara before and I'm a big fan already. Bourjois do really fantastic mascaras  and they're all less than a tenner. 
This one has a great uplifting brush that coats lash by lash, creating irresistible curl with boosted volume and length. You can see how it looks on in my Bourjois Volume Glamour Mascara review.

Smoky Stories Quad eyeshadow palette £7.99

This 'Brilliant Prunette' eyeshadow has all you need to create a gorgeous festive smoky eye. I absolutely love the warmer plum shades that are popular this season so this is perfect. There are 3 complimentary shades that blend effortlessly together along with a top coat shadow with highly concentrated glitter.


They have a lovely cream-powder texture with integrated base shadow primer in the lightest shade so you don't have to use anything else with them to keep them lasting all night.

There are some great free gifts with Bourjois in both Superdrug and Boots so definitely pop along and treat yourself when you're out christmas shopping!
