Today's #SBBC is a brand highlight- your favourite brand, what they do well and what you're looking forward to getting from them.
I love many, many brands but if I had to pick just one it would have to be Bourjois. I tend to make a beeline for it every time I go into a Boots and I generally never leave empty handed. The reason why I love it so much is that it tends to be very good quality and yet reasonably priced. The packaging is always lovely and there's a general retro cuteness to the brand that appeals to me. Here's what I'm currently using from Bourjois:
I wrote a full review of the Rouge Edition lipstick HERE.
I'm also really liking their Cream Blush in 01. Although it isn't the most long lasting, it's easy to apply and a flattering shade. Plus it's great to just throw in your bag when on the move.
I originally bought Healthy mix Serum after I'd gotten out of hospital and it really did nothing for my skin. I've since realised that trialing a new foundation when you're still not 100% health-wise is a mistake so I gave it another go this month and have been loving it. It's probably not as much coverage as I would normally like but it's a great daytime foundation that perks up the complexion nicely.
1 Second Magic Nail Polish Remover. There was huge hype about this when it was first released and as usual, I gave it a bit of a wide berth until that had all settled down. When I finally tried it I really liked it, it is certainly a time saver and very handy (ha) for travelling.
Volumiser mascara. This isn't my favourite Bourjois mascara but I still liked it. It's one of those two-step doohickeys, step one is for daytime lashes and step two for more dramatic night-time lashes. Personally, I prefer to have dramatic lashes all the time so I never used the first step but I quite liked step two- it gave great lift and volume.
Healthy Mix concealer, I also reviewed HERE.
Lastly, Shimmering Shine liquid Eyeshadow. I use this on a daily basis, it's very light but still quite pigmented and is a great shade for blue eyes. It's super easy to apply, in fact it's foolproof- I just lash it on with the applicator, blend it in with my finger and I'm away.
I'm looking forward to finally picking up a Paris colour Boost Lip Crayon (I just have to decide on a shade! So indecisive), a Blush Exclusif (a blush that reacts to your skin's pH to give you a shade unique to you..I'm a sucker for a gimmick) and Java Rice Loose Powder (illuminating powder, in one of the brands original designs from way back in the day).
