So it all began when I was looking for my first ever foundation, I was in my final year of University and thought ‘Damn! It’s about time lol
I ended up getting the wrong shade and since I bought two on the same day they both were way too dark for me. This is when I realised that my hands were darker than my face =/ Awkward.
Anyhow, I wasn’t too bothered, I just use loose powder over it that is skin tone and it works fab.
I did think they were quite good at first, but if you forget to set them, they do oxidise in the air and make your face shine like mad. If you have dry skin like mine then you will LOVE these, they feel quite hydrating and since they are a thin formula, it’s easy to apply all over the face, you can even use your hands, no need for sponges or brushes. Due to the consistency of the foundation, it helps give you a nice fresh a dewy look and does NOT cling to any dry spots that you may have, which is awesome. Most of the time when I apply make up I feel like I’m ruining my face, but not when I’m using the healthy mix, it has some fruits in it, that help hydrate and give your face some radiance.
Sometimes when I’m in a rush I mix the 123 with my normal moisturiser and make my own BB cream. The 123 has particles that help remove redness and dullness and corrects the skins problematic areas by covering up blemish marks.
Any one who knows me knows that I am a big fan of eyeshadow! These trios are ideal if you are beginner. There’s one shade for the highlight under the brow, one for the lid and one for the crease. You can also use the crease shadow to create depth at the side of your eyes, or use the lightest shade to highlight the inner corner of your eye.
The Bourjois Eye liner is my all time favourite, and I will repurchase again and again, I love it, I don’t have one bad thing to say about it, Pleaseeeeee don’t let them discontinue!! I don’t know what I would do. At one point I was mad about the Maybelline reclining pencil, I think it was called The Linermatic or something, but it had so little product and ran out very quickly. At the same price you get a Bourjois pencil with a sharpner at the end of it, how adorable! It’s thick and creamy and last forever and ever, very good buy for your money.
My first ever coloured liner was the blue one by Bourjois, it was a present given to me by my big sister. I love using it one waterline and adding the black liner over the top, it looks great, it comes out as a dark teal colour with some brightness of the turquoise colour showing through, I used to wear that look all the time.
Hope you liked looking at my collection, there’s more on it’s way
