My Bourjois Collection 💕

My bourjois collectionFrom when I was very young, Bourjois makeup was one of my favorite brands. One of the main cosmetics shops in Denmark carried Bourjois but sadly they don’t anymore. I remember maybe 10-15 years ago I had a bronze eyeshadow mini-palette there was extremely pigmented and stayed on for hours! I remember how impressed I was, none of my other eyeshadows had that kind of staying power. I could go out dancing and the makeup would stay on like there was no tomorrow!






When I saw that sell Boujois makeup I slowly began to build up my Boujois collection. Today I will go through the products because there are some definite fav’s and fails among them.


Starting with foundations, Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation and the 123 Perfect CC Cream – they just blow my mind! They sit beautifully on the skin, the Healthy Mix has a very light, dewy texture that enhances the skin in the most beautiful way. The 123 Perfect CC Cream has a more matte finish but it’s a very trusted foundation, it has colour correcting properties which make the skin look like very evened out. I do need to go in with a bit more makeup as it is so matte and even looking – I have to put in the contours of the face and some radiance in the form of highlighter afterward applying it.

I have two different bronzing products which don’t work for me. It’s at no fault of Bourjois it’s simply that my skin tone/undertone doesn’t go well with bronzing products at all. I have a cream and a powder and both of them are no good for me and I have to say that the scent is very powerful! And not in a good way. It smells old fashioned, like makeup you would find on the nightstand of your elderly aunt or grandmother. I don’t now why it has that scent but they really need to cancel it out, I don’t think anyone would appreciate that scent! The same with the nude coloured powder box, the product has a powerful scent. I haven’t gotten to use the powder because the scent doesn’t sit well with me.  scaring me :). The My bourjois collectionpowder in the “Healthy” range has a beautiful scent and I do really love that powder. It says on the package that it is mattifying for 10 hours. I didn’t count and my skin is pretty dry so I hardly ever have any oil on my skin.

I have a cream blush that I use if I want a light wash of colour on my cheeks. I had hoped that it had a dewy finish, but I would say it is a cream to powder product. It doesn’t blow my mind and I don’t reach for it as much as the foundations.

In the far right corner of the picture, you’ll find the CC corrector for underneath the eyes. I didn’t have any idea I would love this product, I bought it on a whim. It’s one one the best under eye correctors I have used, I would compare it to the Maybelline Eraser concealers. I find that I can use this product alone or with my regular concealer on top.

The eyeshadows in the center of the picture I haven’t had for that long. But the colours I really like! They blend really well and the wear time is acceptable.

I have two liners as well a taupe-bronze colour that I either apply in the inner corners of the eye or apply as the liner and then smudge it out for an easy everyday look.

I have to say that even though there are some misses – especially with the scent, I love Bourjois as a makeup brand. I think that the quality overall is really great and it’s “drugstore” prices which make it accessible for the majority of women.

Jeg har lagt makeup på mig selv og veninder i hele min ungdom. Jeg har mit eget touch og finder gerne mærker, som jeg skal lede længe for at finde. Jeg elsker at lege med makeup og se, hvordan det bare GØR noget ved ansigtet. Der er flere dage om ugen, hvor jeg ikke går med makeup - flest dage, hvor jeg er hjemme ;). Når jeg er ude kan jeg ikke lade være at lægge en fin makeup. Any excuse til at eksperimentere med et nyt look!
