Bourjois Haul: Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation, Healthy Balance Powder, Contouring Illusion Bronzer & Highlighter, Rouge Edition Velvet Liquid Lipstick

It has been quite a while since I have been on a beauty spree so I thought I would stock up before I become a broke student again. 

Bourjois is one of my favourite make up brands and I just couldn’t resist a 3 for 2 offer and a free product! 

So what did I get?

Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation

My all time favourite foundation. This never fails me, gives a light to medium buildable coverage with a beautiful healthy dewy finish. My perfect foundation.

Healthy Balance Powder

I was in the market for a new setting powder and this is a firm favourite. It is finely milled and sets my foundation beautifully. I love the packaging and the large mirror – great for touch ups during the day too.

Contouring Illusion Bronzer & Highlighter

This was the free gift if I bought 3 items from Bourjois. This is a new product to me and I was a bit apprehensive as I have tried bronzer which were free from other brands before and they were just far too dark for me.

However this Contouring Illusion is such a lovely light colour – perfect for my skin tone. The bronzer is a soft matte and the highlighter is mostly matte with a very subtle shimmer. They can be used separately to gently contour the face or swirled together for a beautiful soft bronzed finish. I really love this and so glad I have tried this. It stands up well to my trust Soap & Glory bronzer. Love it. Great new discovery.

Rouge Edition Velvet: Happy New Year

I have several Rouge Edition liquid lipsticks – if you missed my full reviews then check out Bourjois Rouge Edition: Review & Review: Bourjois Rouge Edition Souffle de Velvet. 

This was my third pick with the 3 for 2 offer and I thought I couldn’t go wrong with a subtle pinky nude lip. The colour is actually a lot lighter and pinker than what it looks from the tube. 

I have loved the other Rouge Edition Velvet liquid lipsticks I have tried but I have found this one really patchy and the light pink colour is just not for me. To be honest I am a bit disappointed. 

Hope you have enjoyed my Bourjois haul. Have you tried any of these products? What do you like/dislike? Any recommendations for me? I love reading and replying to your comments.

  1. We share a mutual love for Bourjois products, haha! I agree with what you said about the Rouge Edition Velvet liquid lipsticks; its such a hit and miss type thing with those. I have one in the shade Plum Plum Girl, and while its a lovely color, the consistency is pretty terrible.

  2. I love Bourjois! I have the powder in vanilla and whilst I love the finish and feel of it, I find it a shade too dark. It’s fine in summer when I have a bit of colour but I wish I could get one that was just a tad lighter! xxx
