Bourjois Paris Makeup | Review, photos, swatchesMarch 29, 2016
Two new products by Bourjois were launched lately, and I had the chance to try them out and bring you my thoughts. A new foundation line Air Mat was created as a newer and better version of the old and heavy Flower Perfection Foundation, which is now discontinued. I am not a big fan of foundation, let alone the creamy-matte ones, but I am always looking for a foundation that photographs well for my beauty channel.
I'll start with what I like, the packaging. It is slim and lightweight and has a small opening that helps let out just the right amount of product. It is creamier than foundations I usually gravitate to (Mac's Face and Body, for example) and is very powdery, so in my opinion it might not agree with dry skin. It seems that the company is targeting the product at those with combination to oily skin, who are seeking high coverage and longevity, though lately there were some other launches from other companies, that do the job a little better (Loreal's Infallible, for example). The foundation comes in 6 different shades, which can be problematic for girls with fair skin like myself. In conclusion, though it is not my personal favourite, I think it can suite girls with combination skin that doesn't get too oily through-out the day. You can purchase it on Feelunique website.
Though I wasn't too keen on the foundation, the new eye shadows were right up my alley, and habe become very loved and usable throughout this month. The first and favourite one is number 05, that was given the cute name Mauvie Star. It has a very nice colour pay off and a flattering sheen, let alone the gorgeous colour. It can be used either wet or dry, a fact I personally love as I feel it gives me two products in one. Her baby sister, number 01 Ingenude, is a very light, basic nude, that can be used all over the lid as a base for a great eye look. If I had to choose one, it would definately be Mauvie Star, and I would pair it with Noctum Brun, number 08 from the same serise, for a dramatic smokey eye look. You can purchase the Little round pots on Feelunique.
