Look what I won.


A few weeks back I was lucky enough to win these from Bourjois via Twitter. I was so excited to receive them and try them out, the healthy mix foundation is one that has been raved about for so long I needed to see what all the fuss was about. 

I absolutely love these things! The foundation is very light and I would says gives a medium coverage but is buildable. I like to just leave it as it is and build if I'm going somewhere special. I was sent the lightest colour in the foundation obviously cos I'm paler than pale - and it's the perfect shade for me. 

My other favourite in this set is the concealer (normal, not under eye) this gives amazing coverage but doesn't look patchy or heavy on you skin. I actually feel like my skin can breath with this on and isn't getting really clogged up like some concealers make you feel.

I really like the pressed powder too - I've used this everyday with the foundation and concealers and it's left my make up firmly in place and with a matte finish. The only downside is it's the tiniest bit too dark for my skin so I have to be careful not to apply too much.

Lastly, the under eye concealer - although this does it's job I wouldn't purchase this. For one I don't get drastically dark circle so don't worry too much about under eye concealers and secondly I don't like the brush concept. I know everyone love the Touche Eclait (or however you spell it) and I'm sure it's a wonder product but I would never buy it cos of that brush. I like to use my own brushes or my fingers if needs be - I just don't like the idea.

Have you been lucky lately?

  11. I have the pressed powder in the same shade and didn't realise how dark/yellow it was when I first bought it! I'm really pale too and it's not a cheap pressed powder so I'm mad I didn't just stick to Rimmel's Stay Matte xxxx
