First up, Bourjois has designed this cool made-to-measure mineral powder foundation. Using a super clever two-in-one system it comes with two different shades of mineral powder so you can custom blend your own perfect colour. Each shade can be used separately or blended together. It has a movable flap to allow you to dispense the exact quantity needed.
The mineral foundation has a formula of cocoa beans for radiance, orange blossom extract for moisturizing plus your skin is protected by the SPF 15 sunscreen. The powder gives you a light to medium coverage that feels soft and fresh, blends smoothly and gives your skin a lovely natural glow. I have used this as a foundation (on top of tinted moisturizer or liquid foundation as I prefer a slightly heavier coverage) but I also really liked using the darker shade on its own as a bronzer. This product is definitely one of my favourites from the collection. The foundation comes in two shades ‘Fair/Medium’ & ‘Olive/Tanned’ skin and is priced at £9.99/€14.99.
Next up, is the Bronzing Powder (spray) for face and body. This spray allows you to deposit a light coating of bronzing powder onto your skin, without the need to blend! The powder is super fine, smells delicious and can be applied to face, chest and even arms & legs.
This product is perfect to get that last minute sun-kissed ‘boost’ all over, for when you have no time to ‘fake tan’. You just spray it on, without minimal need to blend it in, and run out of the door. It gives you a natural bronzed glow (non shimmery) without rubbing off on your clothes and it washes off again easily when needed. The spray comes in two shades ‘Fair/Medium’ (12) & ‘Olive/Tanned’ (14) skin and is priced at £7.99/€11.99.
If, like me, you already are a huge fan of Bourjois’ Délice de Poudre bronzing powder (with its yum chocolatey smell and look) then you are bound to also love the their latest bronzing compact!
This is the Délice de Soleil Bronzing Powder:The new bronzing powder now comes in a sophisticated and modern compact, complete with brush, panoramic mirror and a pivoting hinge which means the mirror can swivel 360 degrees. I’m personally not a huge fan of these kind of thin bronzer brushes so I tend not to use my contour or bronzer brushes instead but it’s handy to have it there for moments on-the-go. The powder has a highly pigmented ultra-fine texture, the same addictive cocoa smell and is excellent to use all over the face bronzing or as a contour because its matte finish (with a very subtle hint of gold shimmer). The Délice de Soleil bronzing powder comes in two shades; ‘Fair/Medium’ (12) & ‘Olive/Tanned’ (14) and is priced at £8.99/€12.49
Last but not least are the two Effet 3D Summer Collection lip-glosses:
For this collection Bourjois have released two glistening new shades (with speckles of gold) that do not only look great, but also protect your lips (SPF 15) and they have the Effet 3D’s lovely non-sticky moisturising balm formula
. Best of all is that they smell so summery – the tropical coconut fragrance transports my mind directly to a scene of sun bathing on the beach sipping pina coladas!:)
The two new shades are: Rose Pacific (49); my favourite, a STUNNING sheer coral gloss & Brun Exotic (50). Brun Exotic looks quite dark in the tube but once applied it’s a lovely sheer, bronzed shimmery gloss. Both glosses are priced at £6.99/€10.49.
So what do you think of the new Bourjois Summer Bronzing Collection? Any products you have your little eye on or have already purchased? I really like how even though they are a cheaper drug store brand, Bourjois, still launches new collections for different seasons and trends. This one is perfect for summer. Bring on the hot sunny weather I say and thanks to Bourjois I am ready for it! ;) The collection is available now at most local drugstores or for more stockist information visit the Bourjois website. xoxo
