Bourjois Haul

Bourjois makeup haul
Bourjois have to be one of my all time favorite affordable makeup brands that is amazing quality, I have used this brand for years and it works wonders, the healthy mix foundation is my favorite so far as it is like a premium quality foundation.After a long boxing day shopping I decided to get something different and treat myself so decided to get myself some things from the Bourjois.

While going boxing day shopping I remembered that I needed a primer as my last one had just ran out, so I thought why not spend my boots points and treat myself. Going to boots was just madness as the shop was so full because of the sales but I just avoided them and just went to the makeup section and headed right for the Bourjois. They had a 3 for 2 offer on, which I love but it makes it so much harder in what to decide, so after a long think and testing a few lipsticks and looking at the nail polishes I decided on the top 3 products even though I could of ended up buying half of what they had to offer.

I have tried the bronzing powder on its own before and I really did love it as it just give my cheeks a sun kissed look which was beautiful, so that is a reason why I was so tempted to try this as a combination of the bronzer and highlighter.

I have about 40 lipsticks thanks to blogging but I can never have to many as they is so many shades and finsihs to choose from so my search for lipsticks will never be over. I tried most of the shades in the range but finally decided to settle for the hot pepper which is a bright red shade, I have a couple of red shades at home but none this bright so we will see how this on goes.

This is the main thing I went to boots for and they was a choice of matte or satin primer, I decided to go for the matte as I prefer that affect for my combination skin. I have tried the mua primer before which was a cheaper but it did not work well for me so hopefully this will work for me.

What is your favorite affordable makeup brand?

    1. I never knew till I went to boots the other day! hope your primer works well :)

  3. I've looked at the bronzer before, but didn't actually buy it in the end. I need a new one as my Sleek contour kit is almost done, so I may have to give this one a go. Sleek is my fave affordable brand :)

    1. Sleek are amazing too :) I have a few of their eye shadow palettes!

  4. I love that bronzer - smells great and works amazingly in the crease of your eyes as well!
