London How I love thee…
We were in London last weekend for an Epic wedding (the most Beautiful venue I have see to date!) at Syon Park. We did all the touristy things from drinking in a roof bar at Covent Garden to Walking around Piccadilly to going on the London Eye (Sorry now “Coca-Cola” London Eye urggghhh).
I did however sneak in some time for a good old Boots visit (there are some Corporate giants I love)!
Presenting some of the things I purchased, am using and loving !
Lets start With the Eyes
I purchased a “Da Vinci Professional Eyeliner Brush” you can find it on Amazon here. Absolutely Worth the Money ! – the eyeliner brush allows you great Control and flexibility (between thin and thick eyeliners), is very easy to wash and maintain and retains its shape well. I’ve been using it everyday since I got it !
Rimmel as usual was on offer and had a “buy one get the 2nd at 50% off ” offer on mascaras which I immediately snapped up (make-up is seriously expensive in Sweden and I generally shop on all my travels). I bought the Scandal Eyes Mascara and to me this is an average mascara because it tends to clump a lot if i reapply the Product more than once on my lashes. Still decent for the deal I got but I wouldn’t repurchase this one again. (see Product here).
Last but not least, the Bourjois Contour Clubbing Waterproof in 57 Up and Brown was Another good addition to my Collection. The pencil itself is soft and glides smoothly on the eyelid. The staying Power is fairly good but I have a tendency to rub my Eyes while working so I need to test it more ! The pencil has good depth of colour and is a no brainer purchase IMHO.
Lets talk about skin baby !
This has been a cult Product and the reason why is pretty obvious. The Bourjois Radiance Reveal Healthy Mix Foundation here is a stunning Product that has a High value to Money ratio. The texture is light and creamy, it sits extremely well on dry skin and has great staying Power through the day (sans primer). I bought this in the shade Dark Beige and am convinced this is as good as the Kiehls BB Cream (which is far more expensive).
This is a Product that I will have on even for my civil wedding ceremony (yes its that good!).
Now to Lips and Cheeks 🙂
The Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Liquid Lipstick here had been trending on a lot of Beauty blogger websites and Feelunique.com was even out of stock of these Products for a while. All this added to my shopper’s frenzy and I picked up two of these to try- in the shades Hot Pepper and Beau Brun.
Here is a peek into the shades -Hot Pepper is on the Left and Beau Brun on the right !
I have mixed feelings about this Product. Firstly, the smell is AWFUL! it has the most toxic plasticky smell which is nauseating. However, you don’t really smell it after you are done applying it. The shades are really Beautiful, kind of those “statement” colours you want to wear in the Autumn and Winter.
The staying Power is brilliant and lasts for a good 2-3 hours without touch-ups. The texture is a bit strange and takes some getting used to. I have been complimented a lot whenever I wear these ….if only the Company could do something about the smell…..
And last we come to Another Bourjois Product – a Beautiful pink blush – the Bourjois Cream Blush – Blush Exclusif. This Product has pigments that react With the pH levels of your skin and transforms into a unique “bespoke” blush. The winning feature of this is its easy applicability. The powder can be applied and moved around With your fingers and Changes into a Cream texture when applied. Its absolutely Beautiful and what great packaging ! Well done Bourjois!
Excuse my hairy paws 😛
All in all , I am one happy camper after this haul !
