New Bourjois Spring Beauty Launches

Bourjois is definitely one of my favourite drugstore beauty brands so I'm always very excited to hear about their new releases. I was very kindly sent some of their new Spring beauty bits recently so I thought I'd give you a little overview of the new launches you can expect to find at your local Bourjois counter. There's new products for face, eyes and lips and I've been very impressed by some and not so impressed by others! I hope you enjoy finding out a bit more about them. 


First up is the product I was most excited about, their brand new 'colourband' eye shadow and liner pencils. The reason I was so excited to try these is because I'm all about convenience when it comes to my makeup and I love using products that I can swipe and go and that's exactly what these are. Due to the crayon style applicator you can swipe them across the lid and you're good to go. The shades are all fairly neutral so will suit all skin tones. 

I have 'Beige Minimaliste' which is a peachy champagne shade, 'Mauve Baroque' which as the name states is a pretty mauve colour, 'Brun Dadaiste' which is a gorgeous bronze and finally 'Noir Abstrait' which is a jet black and can be used to create a smokey eye or as a liner.' My two favourites are Beige Minimaliste as this is lovely for creating the inner corners of the eye or as a wash of colour all over the lid and Brun Dadaiste is stunning worn underneath the lower lash line for a smokey evening look as I find the bronze shade really compliments my blue eye.


Next up is a few new additions to the Color Boost lip crayon line up. I absolutely love these lip crayons - they're pigmented, glossy and moiturising on the lips so perfect for day to day wear. I really like the new colour additions too - they're more grown up and mature than the previous range. The shades I have are 'Proudly Naked' which is a beautiful pale Peach, 'Sweet Macchiato' which is a gorgeous brown nude (very Kylie Jenner) and finally, 'Pinking Of It', a beautiful berry toned pink which is right up my street! I love all of them!


Finally, there's two new liners and a face powder. There's both a liquid and pencil liner and both are labelled 'Ultra Black' so if you like a super black liner look, these are for you. I have to be honest and say I'm not keen on the liquid 'Liner Pinceau' liner as it has a brush nib which I find really hard to use. Unless you're very good at applying liquid liner, I'd stick to a pen style applicator. However, the Liner Stylo pencil is lovely - its a super black shade which is just how I like my pencil liner to be and it applies nicely to the waterline. I also like that its a twist up style as that means I don't need to mess around sharpening it. 

As for the 'Silk Edition' face powder, I'm in two minds about this one. I really like the compact it comes in and the fact it has a 360 rotating mirror but I'm not entirely sold on the powder itself. Bourjois claim the formula is inspired by silk and that it blurs imperfection and mattifies the skin whilst providing ultimate comfort and a bare skin sensation. I'd definitely agree that it feels very light on the skin but my problem is that its just not very pigmented and doesn't transfer very well. I feel I have to apply a lot of it before I get the matte effect it claims and even then, I wouldn't say it does an excellent job at setting my makeup. Its not a terrible product but when compared to my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish natural, it doesn't even compare and I'd much rather spend the extra on that!

L-R: Beige Minimaliste, Mauve Baroque,  Brun Dadaiste, Noir Abstrait, Proudly Naked, Sweet Macchiato and Pinking Of It

I hope you enjoyed having a little look at Bourjois new releases - do you like the look of anything in particular?

  32. I didn't find the eyeshadow pencils very easy to blend so as you mentioned I tend to use them on the lower lash line. The new lip crayon shades are lovely though and I'm definitely interested in the powder xx
