So the above little beauties were bought in June when I was paid, so are definitely not part of #NoSpendingJuly!
As you probably know I am a massive fan of Bourjois cosmetics so I just couldn’t resist the great 3 for 2 offer in Superdrug which also included a free Magic Nail Polish Remover.
Rouge Edition Lipstick: 04 Rose Tweed
I am a big fan of the Rouge Edition collection by Bourjois, especially their lip glosses and matte liquid lipsticks – check out my full review here.
Over the past few months my lipstick collection has steadily been growing and I have been getting more confident with different textures and finishes and stepping outside of my lip product comfort zone.
Being a huge fan of other lip products in the Rouge Edition range I thought it wouldn’t be fair to not give this beautiful lipstick a try!
I picked up the shade 04 Rose Tweed which is a beautiful soft nude mauve shade. This lipstick has a wonderful creamy texture which boasts of 10hr hydration. It is definitely smooth, hydrating and extremely comfortable to wear on the lip but not as super long lasting as matte lipsticks. It will needs some reapplication during the day. This is a beautiful every day, my-lips-but-better lipstick shade which will suit a wide range of skin tones. Another winner from Bourjois.
12hr Aqua Blush: 03 Pink Twice
I picked up the gorgeous coral colour of this Aqua Blush a few weeks ago and fell in love with the long lasting cream formulation so just had to try another shade – check out my review of the coral shade here.
This Pink Twice shade is a beautiful soft pink shade which blends perfectly to achieve a subtle flushed look.
Similarly to the coral shade I prefer to blend this out using my Real Techniques stippling brush rather than my fingers as the product suggests. Using a brush creates a more flawless finish as you need to work with the product quickly before it sets – once it sets it will not budge or fade for hours and hours!
Healthy Mix Concealer: 51 Clair Light Radiance
The Healthy Mix Serum Foundation is one of my all time favourite foundations so I thought it was about time I gave the concealer a try as I haven’t had much luck in finding a good blemish covering concealer!
This is a really creamy and pigmented concealer. As you can see from the above photo it has great coverage so has been perfect to use to cover blemishes and also great at covering and brightening dark under eye circles as the yellow tone is great to boost radiance!
This has an oil-free formulation and as with the other products in the Healthy Mix range has added fruit extracts which boosts radiance and hydration of the skin. This is a great concealer and I wish I had tried it sooner! Would definitely recommend.
Magic Nail Polish Remover
This was a free gift on top of the great 3 for 2 offer. This is a nail polish remover perfect for travel on when you are on-the-go. No fiddling with cotton pads needed with this great product, all you need to do is put your finger inside the bottle for a couple of second and remove and the remover soaked sponge inside dissolves the nail polish in an instant!
This also has a fruity sorbet and vanilla fragrance which is very very subtle. This is a great handy product to have – it was especially useful to remove stubborn glitter top coats! Love it!
