One of my favourite things to do is to wonder the make up aisles in Boots. I could happily spend hours doing this.
This is what I picked up on my latest visit –
I wanted some new pressed powder as my Mac Prolong wear was running low. There was a 3 for 2 offer on Bourjois so got their healthy balance Matt 10 hour powder in shade 53 light beige.
I have worn this for a few days now and I am really surprised how much I love it. I actually prefer it to the Mac powder and it’s half the cost!
It does not come with an applicator but I have a pack of pressed powder applicators anyway which I get from Primark. I prefer to apply my powder by pressing it onto the skin rather than applying with a brush as I am prone to a shiny T-zone so I find pressing the powder on gives me a longer matt finish.
This powder gives me a flawless finish and really does last. I put it to the test yesterday. It was on my face for 12 hours and I was outside most of the day in the heat.
I didn’t need to re-apply through the day, it really did last.
If you do want to re-apply it has a mirror in the compact which is always handy. So I will definitely be purchasing this agin I love it ❤️
I also picked up 2 liquid lipsticks both of which are Matt.
These are my first Matt lipsticks. I have not purchased before because I am not keen on having dry lips and thought these would feel dry.
Well I was wrong. Both are surprisingly, very creamy and not drying at all.
The first is a Rouge Edition Soufflé de Velvet in shade 03 VIPeach. It’s a lovely summer colour.
The other is Rouge Edition Velvet in shade 10 Don’t pink of it. This is a pretty pinky nude shade.
These really last too. I do have to re-apply a few times through the day but I really really like them 💋
Lastly, I picked up some of my fave concealer. Collection lasting perfection in shade 2 cool medium. I love, love, LOVE this concealer and it’s amazing value for money.
