Bourjois | Makeup Bag Additions

Recently I haven't bought as much makeup as I usually do I think I've been investing a lot more into skin care and my skin has improved so much. There were a few bits that I was running low on and needed to update though, as no matter how much makeup you seem to have you're always in need of something. These two products are ones I've been testing and loving and have added to my makeup bag essentials, which both happen to be from Bourjois.

The first item I was in need of was a new foundation and I am really bad with sticking with my usual foundation and not venturing to far out but I knew this time I really wanted to try a new one. I normally like the quality of Bourjois products and I liked the sound of their Healthy Mix foundation so I though that I would pick it up. It says that it contains lots of vitamins like C, E and B5 which sounds like it would be good and not heavy for your skin and also says that it is anti-fatigue, which is something that I really need. I love really fresh and glowy foundations and after testing it out for a few weeks I can say that it does make your skin look more awake and fresh, covering dark circles and imperfections. It's very lightweight and you don't need much product to cover all of your face which is good, it's easily build-able as well and I think it's a perfect foundation for any occasion and I've not tested the longevity specifically but I haven't had any problems with it coming off for a variation of periods that I have had it on for.

The second product I've been testing and loving is also from Bourjois, it's the Volume Reveal waterproof mascara. I don't normally invest in mascara and I normally just use anything that's cheap and cheerful, I'm not normally fussy, but I decided I'd try a new one out and see what I think. This mascara brush is very long and straight and it doesn't really curve but I think it works well because it doesn't. The formulation is very consistent and drys quick when applied to lashes, it doesn't clump and even if it does it's easy to fix as it's very smooth. The thing I find very helpful is the mirror on the side which is magnifying and helpful for application. I have nothing bad to say about it, which means overall it's one of my favourite mascaras.

I love both of these products and I would buy them again if I ran out as I think they're high quality products for not a ridiculous amount of money.

Has anyone ever tried these before? What do you think?
