My top Bourjois products

Bourjois are a brand that I can find a little bit hit and miss. A few years back I had one of their little round pot blushers and although I loved the rose scent and the dinky size I couldn't get any colour payoff from it. More recently I bought one of their foundations, I'm not sure which one it was now, but it just didn't do it for me. Despite that there are a few Bourjois products that are amongst some of my favourite products to use. I've far from tried all or even a large number of their products, but these are my current top three products from Bourjois.

Before I continue I'm going to talk about my experience of ordering these products from Superdrug. I've checked in several Boots and Superdrug stores and the lightest shade of the Radiance Reveal concealer never appears to be in stock. So I thought I'd order online as that would also guarantee that I'd get sealed products as I'm fed up of getting home and realising something I've just bought has already been opened. Superdrug had a 3 for 2 offer on Bourjois but the concealer was out of stock online as well. So I waited, hoping it would come into stock before the offer finished, which it did.

I went and collected my order from store and opened it once I got home. As soon as I took the lipstick out of the package I knew it had been opened because the label that seals the product was broken and was actually in two parts on different sides of the product. I opened it and discovered there was also a load of product around the opening, suggesting to me that the applicator might have been pulled out and replaced several times. I'm far from happy I've been sent an opened, if not actually used product and I'm certainly not going to use it. I'm just waiting to hear back from Superdrug now.

Bourjois Radiance Reveal concealer

So the most illusive product here is the Radiance Reveal concealer. Why are the palest shades of concealer always out of stock in store? Maybe this suggests you should offer up more stock and maybe even make some paler shades too, hey brands?!

I originally bought this along with the foundation I mentioned above and I really didn't like it and threw it aside in a drawer. I later pulled it out again to give it a second chance and for some reason that time I absolutely loved it! I really don't know what changed, but it's now my current favourite concealer. I find it a good all-rounder, so it works well at covering redness, scaring and dark circles, even my dark circles. Nothing covers my dark circles completely, but it does a good job. As the name suggests it doesn't provide a flat finish but adds some radiance. In terms of foundation I much prefer a matte finish over dewy, but I like that this lifts my complexion slightly and helps hide what I want it to hide. 

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet liquid lipstick 

Let's gloss over the whole open product thing and concentrate on the actual product. I believe the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet's were my first introduction to liquid lipstick and I love them. The follow up Rouge Edition products (Aqua Laque and Souffle de Velvet) didn't do it for me at all but the velvet's are one of my favourite lip products. 

They're easy to apply with the doe foot applicator and once they've dried down, that's it, they're staying in place until you remove them at the end of the day. They do wear slightly, but not enough to justify needing to top them up. In fact they're quite difficult to remove, sometimes even using an oil cleanser. I attended an event wearing one of these and went to remove it so I could have some lipstick applied, but the remover I was given just wouldn't get it off. In the end she applied a similar shade over the top. I find them quite comfortable to wear, but I would recommend making sure your lips are in good shape before applying them to ensure they are comfortable.

My existing shades are Personne ne Rouge!, Frambourjoise and Olé Flamingo!, which are all very visible shades, so I decided I wanted a more nude/pink shade. I settled on So Hap'pink, but I haven't had a chance to try it out yet because I'm not using the product I've been sent.

Bourjois Liner Feutre

This product has recently broken my heart! This is one of my favourite liquid eye liners because it's so easy to use and I loved the shade Noir Violine, which was a dark purple shade. I was desperate for a reasonably priced dark purple liner, so I was over the moon when I found this one. My current one is coming to an end and when I went to try and repurchase I discovered it has apparently been discontinued. I love the liner so much I still wanted to repurchase but didn't really want black as I have several black ones already. So I went for Noir Mocha, which is a kind of chocolate brown shade. Again I haven't actually tried this yet but I already know I'm going to love it, even if the shade is not quite what I wanted.
