Bourjois Foundation Review No. 1: Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation Review


Bourjois’s newest foundation release is 123 Perfect, which I happened to spot when I was last in Boots – I didn’t hear about it online which suggests it was released with very little fanfare! When it comes to high street/ drugstore level foundation, Bourjois is one of the few brands I would buy and use – I mean I buff foundation into my face every day and I do prefer the higher end premium bases […]

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Fresh and Hydrating Cream Compact Make Up SPF15 in 40 Beige Review


Even when I have my daily foundation (usually liquid) sorted, I tend to always have some kind of cream compact foundation on the go too.  I love creamy compact bases because they tend to be quite hydrating and offer good coverage – I keep this in my handbag for emergencies and touch ups.  My latest purchase thanks to a random £5 credit to my Debenhams beauty card was the new Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Compact Make […]

Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation Review & Swatches (Shade 11)


I popped down to the Illamasqua counter near me a few weeks ago for reasons I will explain next week for a make over with one of my favourite make up artists – Leena who is a Key Artist for the brand. One of the items I purchased and can’t wait to review because I have so many mixed thoughts about it, is Illamasqua’s Skin Base Foundation (£25): They say: Inspired by the cult Asian […]

Inika Product Review: Pure Primer, Liquid Mineral Foundation, Perfection Concealer and Lip Whip Review


Inika Cosmetics has an interesting back story; the founder Miranda Bond struggled with endometriosis and thought shouldn’t wouldn’t be able to conceive naturally.  She decided to change things in her lifestyle, like her diet (very important of course) and eliminating products that contain potentially harmful chemicals that can be found in cosmetics.  Once she began to detox her life she fell pregnant naturally and eventually Inika was born, a 100% natural beauty brand that is […]

How I ended up with 3 Diorskin Nude Foundations…shade comparison and review


Diorskin Nude is one of my top 3 foundations (my review here) – it’s glowy and easy to blend, it almost has a paint like texture to it because it dries fairly quickly on the face and leaves this pigmented stain (is that a good description?!) which I like! A lot. I’ve realised that I can’t substitute a long lasting foundation for a glowy one if if the long lasting one makes you look ‘dead’. […]

Does Flower have Power?! Bourjois Flower Perfection Foundation & Bourjois Flower Perfection Primer Review!


As if I need another foundation, right? I couldn’t resist buying the new Bourjois foundation and primer when I spotted them in Boots – they have a deal where you can get both for just £13! (The foundation is £11.99 on it’s own so do the math!). Bourjois Flower Perfection foundation boasts of 16 hours wear, pore and fine line coverage, an even finish, SPF15, with azalea flower extract ‘youth extending’ (I can think of […]

Mii Illuminating Face Base Foundation and Glamorous Trio Bronzing Face Finish Review and Swatches


It’s always nice to try out a new make up brand, and I was recently sent these new products from Mii to try – Illuminating Face Base and Glamourous Trio Bronzing Face Finish: Mii is a brand that is about ‘having the confidence to be yourself’.  There is definitely a clean feeling about the range which I really like, and the actual packaging is in simple black.  First off, the Illuminating Face Base…

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation, Anti Fatigue Effect & Radiant Glow Review


Rimmel’s newest foundation offering is called Wake Me Up and let’s face it – who doesn’t need some waking up in the mornings! For a long time I’ve heard great reviews about the Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect Foundation but have never had the chance to try it out – I imagine Rimmel’s Wake Me Up is in the similar vein, illuminating and waking up the skin. I like the packaging – the bright orange […]
