Bourjois Boutique Bag

Hi dolls! As you may know if you read my last few recent posts, I went along to the Bourjois Boutique on Monday. I was given a little goody bag on arrival at the venue and I thought I'd share the contents of this plus my mini haul from that day.

This is what the bag looked like. Inside were a few bits and bobs, some of which I love and some that I think are not so great (but it's free and it's a gift so can't complain at all!)

Inside the bag was a foaming cleansing cream wash, a mirror compact which lights up, a mini 3D effect lipgloss, an eyeshadow in the shade 92 "Gris Pailettes" which is a dark grey shadow with glitter particles in it and a Gloss Bijou which looks like a disco ball and slides open to reveal a pretty coral coloured gloss! Not a bad bag at all, although the shadow disappointed me. When swatched, the glitter separates from the colour and it was not hugely pigmented. However, I still can't complain as I am not a huge wearer of eyeshadow as it is!

Next up, my purchases:

I chose a Delice de Poudre bronzing powder in the shade 51. This is something I've read about a lot on other blogs but never actually bought myself (for some reason). The colour is fairly light and it smells absolutely yummy - like chocolate and vanilla! I also picked up a blusher in the shade 74 "Rose Ambre". This is a matte blush in a gorgeous deep pink colour - a shade I've bought and worn before and have loved. The lipstick is a Sweet Kiss lipstick in the shade 06 "Rose Tendre", it's a lovely coral pink/red and as I have never tried lipsticks from Bourjois I thought I'd give it a go. Lastly, I selected the Volume Glamour Ultra Black mascara which claims to double eyelash volume.

Some swatches for you lovelies:

 L-R: Lipstick, Blusher and Bronzer

The photo on top shows swatches in daylight without flash while the picture below it is daylight but with a flash. The products are not actually swatched that heavily and are quite pigmented - something which always pleases me. The lipstick is a nice, creamy formula which doesn't dry out the lips, although I have yet to test it's staying power. I will try and review the mascara in a separate post hopefully.

I paid £14 for the four products using the deal that Bourjois offered to their visitors that day (2 for £9, 3 for £12 and 4 for £14!) That actually works out to be £3.50 per item which is an absolute BARGAIN! I was very happy with my purchases and with the whole day overall. The staff were friendly and so helpful and the day was great fun.

What did you buy from the Bourjois Boutique? Have you tried any of the products I purchased and what are your views on them?
