I just love budget makeup from my local boots and one of my favorite brands is Bourjois, I have many things from the brand from lipsticks to eye shadows and a few weeks ago I decided to add more of the brand to my collection and decided to get a primer as I hadn't used one ever and I wanted to see if it actually makes a difference to how my makeup sets and how long my makeup actually stays on throughout the day. I choose the Bourjois Paris Happy Light Matte Serum as I prefer a matte finish to my foundation. This cost me £10.99 in my local boots which I did think was a bit steep but I was very optimistic to give it a try.
- 2 types to choose from ( Matte and Luminous)
- Lightweight ( which is great not a fan of anything heavy)
- Non drying ( which is fantastic you don't want a drying primer under foundation)
- All Day Comfort ( designed for all day wear)
- Cruelty free ( Bourjois are a cruelty free brand)
- Decent price ( at £10.99 its affordable compared to some other brands)
Finish and Lasting powerApplying this was quite simple and I used my beauty blender to apply to my skin, the scent of this is not over powering and has a nice delicate scent. Applying this took quite a lot of pumps of the primer I think it took about 4-5 pumps to get an ever coverage on my face. The finish of the primer is like a moisturizer and a good base for foundation, Applying foundation over this was no different to applying foundation without the primer so I would agree that It is lightweight. The lasting power of this is very good I must admit and my foundation stay flawless all day without the need to reapply my foundation throughout the day which is an added bonus of this primer.
My verdictI really do like this primer and it is super long lasting the only slight problems for me is that I only bought this in December and its ran out already and I haven't used it everyday either and the other problem I had with this primer is that after wearing this all day it was a bit drying but apart from that it is a brilliant product and really makes a difference for making makeup last so much longer then it would without wearing this at all.
Have you tried Bourjois Primers yet?
