Having a Boots store literally just down the road does me no favours for my makeup addiction! I am forever walking round the store with Scarlett getting bits and bobs, I literally can’t help myself. I have been on the look out for a new foundation as I currently use Lush Colour Supplement in Jackie Oates but it doesn’t really provide the coverage I would like when my face breaks out. I stumbled across this Bourjois Healthy Mix in Light Vanilla (£9.99) which is their lightest shade, I swatched it in store even though there were no mirrors and bad lighting it looked pretty good so I grabbed it.
As many bloggers will know it is a huge pain in the arse when you buy something you want to review on your blog but you can’t use it until it’s photographed but I managed to get around this because it’s pumpable (YAY). I got home and tried it out straight away, I instantly liked how it wasn’t too thick and creamy compared to some foundations as that can feel quite heavy on my face and look cakey for my liking. I also love how this foundation provides me with a lovely full coverage from just one pump for my whole face and yet it looks really natural adding a subtle healthy glow.
I also picked up the Bourjois Colorband (£5.99) in the shades Brun Dadaiste and Beige Minimal I bought these after seeing them being used on a bloggers Youtube video, which I can’t remember for the life of me but I adored the colours. When I headed to Boots they had a 3 for 2 offer on all Bourjois products so I swatched these and instantly fell in love with the pigmentation, it was simply stunning. These Colorbands have a lovely creamy texture which glide over your eyelids effortlessly staying put for hours without the need of a eye primer and are crease free what more could you want?!
I am not a huge eyeshadow wearer I usually opt for a winged liner and plus I am also totally useless at blending! though I have found these Colorbands to be fantastic making my life so much easier too, they are super easy to blend leaving your eyes looking amazing in a couple of seconds.
I would definitely say that was a successful mini haul and I shall be purchasing the other shades at some point!
Have you tried any of these these? What did you think?
