The Very Accidental, Completely Unecessary But Oh So Worth It Bourjois Haul
The first thing I spotted was this powder, I still feel like I am on the hunt for that perfect powder; a soft velvet finish leaving my skin matte and glowy and keeping my make up in place for a long time with minimum slickage, I do hate that word. But oily skin is a very big issue for me so powders are very much my lifesaver. I thought I would give the Healthy Balance one a go after Lily Pebbles mentions of it on her blog and channel. I've only been trying it out a for a week but it's definitely up there with the rest of the powders I have grown to love.
After hearing many great things about the 123 Perfect CC Cream and having a major love for the 123 Perfect Foundation I thought I would try this one too, one because it is an SPF which the foundation isn't but also because sometimes I do like a more natural, sheer look, very occasionally not very often but even I do have those days. What I like about this type of base is its ease of application, for me this is the perfect lazy day base, for those days at home vegging on the sofa or days where you really don't care but still don't want to frighten the poor person walking your way down the street.
Berry lips are my absolute favourite this time of year, perhaps not very work appropriate when you work in an architectural office but definitely fitting for a little peruse down the high street on a Saturday afternoon, and after Anna from Vivianna does Make Up mentioned some new Bourjois releases a few weeks back I new this was a colour I just had to have in my collection - Plum Plum Girl. Plus I absolutely love the formula of these lipsticks and that they literally last all day long.
Purple has definitely overcome me this season, usually only holding a place as a berry toned lip colour but now I even feel like adding a light dusting of it over my lids. It's a look I've never done or gone for but suddenly I am all about those ombre, shimmery purple lids. This was actually a purchase from ASOS and completely coincidental in my hunt for a purple eye shadow but the colour, Prune Nocturne just looked perfect for the look I am trying and hoping to achieve. I've not used it yet but I absolutely love its iridescent, metallic deep purple tone and I feel like as we head more into the festive season I will be daring to give this look a go. Watch out for a tutorial.
