As always, a recent shopping trip to Boots resulted in spending copious amounts of money that I should really be saving. However, I was in need (yes, need) of a new eyeliner pen and mascara. I noticed that Bourjois had a promo offer, whereby if you purchased two full-priced products then you receive a complimentary blusher – perfect. Without any hesitation, I snapped up the Volume Glamour mascara and the Liner Feature pen. When it comes to mascara, I always choose a volumising rather than lengthening one, simply because I think that my lashes are quite naturally long. The Volume Glamour brush isn’t as thick as I’d usually prefer, but I decided to give it a go since it claims to ‘double eyelash volume’. I’m actually pretty pleased with the results as I found that it added length to my lashes too.
Since using Maybeline’s Master Precise eyeliner pen, I would never go back to a liquid liner. Luckily, Bourjois also have their own version so I thought that I would purchase it in order to receive the blusher. The nib reminds me of a felt tip pen and it is SO much easier to use than a liquid or gel based liner. A cat eye flick is my signature, everyday makeup look and I find that the eyeliner pen is the perfect tool to master this. I’d say that the Bourjois Liner Feature is just as good as the Master Precise version. I have also tried Collection 2000’s ‘Extreme 24hr Felt Tip Liner’ but found that it didn’t provide a smooth application. With the Bourjois, I just glide the pen across my lid – smudge and hassle free.
I love the packaging of the blusher. The French design reminds me of being in Paris and even though it’s so small, it still has a little compact mirror and brush so it saves having to carry all three separately! The shade is number 34, Golden Rose which combines a dusky pink tone with shimmering flecks of gold. Applying it lightly to the apples of your cheeks gives a lovely rosy glow. It also has a really nice fragrance which is unusual for a blusher – it smells really sweet and flowery!
Post to you soon xoxo
