[Review] Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque Lipsticks

Hey guys,

How have you been? Hope April has been good to you guys! ūüôā Personally, its been a really tiring month, physically & emotionally. Life¬†has¬†been going like a ship on a rocky wave, and sometimes I feel like it’s going to throw me off anytime. Oh well. With May comes spring, and I’m sure things will be much better then.

And speaking of better things coming my way, these landed in my mailbox recently. These are the newly launched¬†Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque Lipsticks. Now if you recall, I reviewed their predecessors, the¬†Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet¬†Lipsticks here and here. Those were matte liquid lipsticks, and I love them very very much ‚̧ I have 4 of the 8 shades for the velvet versions, and I plan to collect all 8 at some point when they’re in stock at the local Bourjois outlet.

Now these Aqua Laque’s are¬†supposed to be¬†a hybrid lipstick¬†which breaks all the rules of the lipstick rule book. Intriguing, I must admit. Lets see how well it fares. ūüėÄ

Optimized-Review Bourjois Aqua Laque  (1)

What it is: A lipstick that combines a high concentration of water and Nymphea extract which has great moisturizing ability up to 10 hours, & contains all the elements necessary to achieve a light and extremely refreshing texture. There are 8 shades available in this range.

Lets talk packaging first. It’s almost identical to the Rouge Edition Velvets, except that the cap of the lipstick is metallic, chromic, shiny and reflects the colour of the product in it. The packaging actually looks quite luxurious. The applicator comes with a doe footed tip that actually applies the product quite well.

Colour wise, I’ve got three shades for you guys today:

03 Brun’croyable : Described as a¬†brown,¬†not chestnut, with a hint¬†of red, pink¬†and caramel¬†for an¬†incredible¬†result.

05 Red My Lips : An intense red which oozes Femme Fatale at the stroke of a brush.

08 Babe Idole : A light pink that will turn you into the queen of pop!

Ingredients:  Aqua (Water), Octyldodecanol, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Polybutene, Synthetic Wax, Sucrose Acetate Isobutyrate, Glycerin, Alcohol Denat., Acrylates Copolymer, Cetyl Peg/Ppg-10/1 Dimethicone, Hexyl Laurate, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Dibutyl Lauroyl Glutamide, Glyceryl Caprylate, Pentylene Glycol, Ethylene/Propylene/Styrene Copolymer, Butylene/Ethylene/Styrene Copolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Polyglyceryl-6 Polyricinoleate, Zea May (Corn) Starch, Parfum (Fragrance), Tocopherol, Limonene, Caprylyl Glycol, Bht, Citric Acid, Nymphaea Alba Flower Extract, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate.

Here’s the swatches of the 3 Aqua Laques.

From left:¬†03 Brun’croyable,¬†05 Red My Lips &¬†08 Babe Idole. As you can see, they are rather sheer when applied, and look rather glossy, like liquid lipsticks.¬†The¬†liquid texture is oh so smooth.

I know you guys would like to see all the 8 colour shades in action, so here they are.

Here are how they look on me! From left is 03, 08 and 05. I think my favourite shade is 05 simply because it’s the most pigmented of the lot.

Optimized-[Review] Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque Lipsticks

What I think:¬†The moment I¬†apply the lipstick, it feels like a cool burst of water on the lips. It feels like applying water onto my lips, just that this water is coloured, and is the tiniest bit sticky. It’s really light, so you feel like you’re wearing nothing on your lips. Although it promises to stay put on your lips, unfortunately that doesn’t ring true. Its lasts all of 2 hours on me before fading away, leaving a light stain, which is a bummer. If you do not mind the constant reapplication, good for you.¬†And since its texture is just like water, it doesn’t sink into the little cracks in your lips.

Pigmentation wise, the shade 03 & 08 are rather sheer, but 05 is quite pigmented. I usually apply 2 layers of the lipstick for optimum colour. It doesn’t dry up, but it doesn’t sit on the lips either. It kinda melts onto your lips and bonds to form a nice protective layer, which makes sense since I find that the lipsticks plump the lips so very slightly.

Application is a breeze, I basically just slap on some product using the applicator, though sometimes it can apply quite streaky. I usually go over with my finger to smoothen things out. Although it has a light feel, leaves a nice stain behind, I don’t particularly fancy the texture of the Aqua Laques. Call me traditional, but I like my lipsticks to be lipsticks, and liquid lipsticks to be what they are. The hybrid concept of things kind of befuddle me a little.¬†

Optimized-Review Bourjois Aqua Laque  (2)

I guess to sum things up, I like the colours in the range, but the texture of the lippies themselves are a turn off for me. A matter of personal preference no doubt, but I’m not the biggest fan of them. Also I don’t fancy the fact that I would need to reapply them every couple of hours. Yes they are a new an amazing product, but the traditionalist in me doesn’t fancy them so much.¬†

Have you tried this product? Are you planning to give a lipstick lipgloss hybrid a try, or are you just a stick in the mud just like I am?

The Bourjois¬†Rouge Edition Aqua Laque retails¬†for RM45.50 (currently¬†at an introductory price of¬†RM42.80) With¬†any purchase of ¬†RM60 products at Watsons,¬†and an Rm80 purchase at the Sunway Pyramid outlet, you get a free mystery gift ūüôā

[Review] Holy Grail Alert! Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation Is All That

I love foundations. I cant explain it, but every-time I put on my foundation, I just feel happier. Do you guys get that feeling too? ūüėÄ Anyway, I’ve been slowly trying to build up my foundation collection, which is tricky business to be frank, since I’m rather picky about them. Some are too thick, too oily, too dry, you get the gist of things. So far, I’ve been liking the Dior¬†Star Fluid Foundation, and I’ve also been loving the¬†Guerlain Lingerie de Peau as well. Remind me to do a review on those two yeah? ūüôā The next foundation on my to buy list will be the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, so I cant wait for that, wheee!!

What I do have today, is the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation. I picked this up when Bourjois first landed in Malaysia, which was what, more than half a year ago? Considering I’ve used this foundation for a while now, so I’d like to tell you guys what I think about it, though I think the title says it all. Holy Grail is what it is!

[Review] Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Grand Cru & Ole Flamingo

Bonjour!

If you recall a couple of weeks ago, I blogged about the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Frambourjoise, and I mentioned that I was lemming for Grand Cru & Ole Flamingo too? Guess what landed in the mailbox soon after? 

Say hello to the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks in Grand Cru & Ole Flamingo! I wont run through the whole review again, I’ve raved plenty in my previous post on them, which you can read here.

Optimized-Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Review Grand Cru Ole Flamingo (5)

 Just to recap for any new readers here, the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks are amazeballs for all the following reasons:

They’re a bold matte lipstick with enhanced colour that dries to a soft velvety¬†finish.
They feel lightweight on the lips. (as if you’re not wearing any lipstick at all)
They do not dry out the lips like other matte lipsticks.
And the most important fact, is that they last FOREVER on your lips. (proven fact yo)

Grand Cru is described as a dark burgundy red, tinged with pink for a bright touch that makes it easy to wear.

Optimized-Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Review Grand Cru Ole Flamingo (3)
Ole Flamingo on the other hand is described as a deep pink, with all the light , fresh, sassy spirit of raspberry, intense & surprising.

Optimized-Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Review Grand Cru Ole Flamingo (4)

Swatches of Grand Cru & Ole Flamingo.

Optimized-Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Review Grand Cru Ole Flamingo (7)

As you can see, Grand Cru applies very clumpy, as I have mentioned in my previous post, which did put me off purchasing it. But to my utter surprise, it glides on as smooth as butter on my lips! Anyone care to explain how or why, because I’m dumbfounded by that fact. I guess lip products should be swatched on lips,where they belong, and not on my arm.

Swatches of the rest of the shades, just in case ūüėČ

Personal Thoughts: I cant get enough of these babies! I already have 3 of the 8 shades now, and I’m planning to collect all 8 ASAP. The chemical scent of the product still irks me, but considering it dissapears soon after, I don’t mind it.

[Review] Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Frambourjoise

Haroo mah awesomesauces!

I’m super excited to do this review, mainly cos I’ve been waiting for this item to come into Bourjois Malaysia since they launched locally! The waiting finally paid off, cos it’s¬†here! It’s here! The¬†Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick is here! ‚̧ The first day I knew it was in, I quickly dropped by Sunway Pyramid to get my hands on it, and to swatch every single shade known to mankind, lol!

Just a bit of background story first just for fun. I went over to the Bourjois kiosk in Sunway Pyramid on the launch day to purchase them, but apparently they were not in yet. The pioneer stock was only coming in the next week. Only testers were available so that people could pre-book them. (I wonder why though?) My heart sank ever so slightly, so I dropped my name & number to the SA and told her to give me a ring when they were in (which she did btw, so kudos to customer service being alive!).

Took a walk around¬†the mall¬†to easy my poor soul, and lo & behold, the whole complete range of Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks was available at Watsons Sunway Pyramid!! Bourjois Malaysia, why you no communicate things internally clearly and confuse poor customers like me? ūüė¶

Anyway I got myself the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Frambourjoise, and only one because I wanted to give the products a proper go before deciding if I wanted any other shades so I went with a safe pink.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Review (2)

The¬†Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Frambourjoise at a first glance, looks like a pink shade with slight hints of red. I think this colour is super suitable for day & work wear! The product itself comes nicely packaged in a see-through tube, and the shade inside is clearly visible. The doe-foot sponge that comes with the applicator seems convenient, but honestly, I found that it picks up way too much product, and the application isn’t as smooth as I wished it was. I usually use my lip brush to outline, and my fingers to blend instead.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Review (7)

Product Description:  

  • Matte finish and incredibly light.
  • Bold colour
  • Flawless hold
  • Rouge Edition Velvet lasts 24 hours, no need for constant touch-ups!

Rouge Edition Velvet by Bourjois is the new era of lipsticks. An amazing, irresistible formula. It’s soft, melting texture glides on to the lips and turns into a matte, velvety and incredibly light colour. Lips are left smooth and soft as velvet. Enriched with evanescent oils, it’s incredibly sensuous formula provides a soft, second-skin feel, without drying or fading lips.

Rouge Edition Velvet shades are true “colour shots” with a chic matte finish! Thanks to the formula being saturated with pure pigments, each shade perfectly covers lips with bold, very intense colour. An ultra-fashionable result, straight from the catwalk! The texture of the lipstick is undetectable after application. The lipstick is comfortable to wear all day long.

With its transparent bottle and shade-tinted cap, the Rouge edition lipstick is a must-have fashion accessory to show off! Its slant foam applicator makes application precise and easy, delivering just the right amount of formula.

Bourjois Velvet

The Rouge Edition Velvet comes in 8 gorgeous shades.
From left: Personne Ne Rouge, Frambourjoise, Hot Pepper, Peach Club, Ole Flamingo, Pink Pong, Nude-ist & Grand Cru.

I was initially torn between Ole Flamingo, Frambourjoise & Grand Cru, but since I had my Too Faced Melted Liquefied Lipstick in Candy & Ruby, and those two shades are almost similar, I decided to go with Frambourjoise instead. Also taking into account the fact that all the testers for Grand Cru were clumpy. (manufacturing defect or is the product formulation bad?)

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Review (6)

Personal Thoughts: Personally, I’m on the fence with these lipsticks. I cant say I hate them, but I certainly havent fallen head over heels with them. To name a few things that irk me, the scent of the product is a strong pungent chemical scent (granted it¬†does dissapear in a short while), but I still don’t like the things that I put on my face to smell as such. The colours are also just a teensy weensy bit opaque for me, so not a fan. I prefer¬†my lipsticks to ooze pigmentation!

Things that I like? The fact that they stay on literally forever. I can eat, sleep, jump of a building, and these lippies stay on, the whole effing day! I have almost never retouched up my lip colour when using this product. My lips are so¬†smooth and feel as soft as velvet. On the plus side, they don’t dry out my lips, ever!

Price wise, the Bourjois SA mentioned that these lippies retail for RM49, but they were sold at Watsons for RM39.80 instead. So poor me is left feeling confused again.

Here is me wearing the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Frambourjoise. The colour pay off is great, no?

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Review (8)

For those interested in the ingredients.

Ingredients: Dimethicone, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Butyl Acrylate/Hydroxypropyl Dimethicone Acrylate Copolymer, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Silica, Parfum (Fragrance), Limolene. [+/- (May Contain) : CI 45410 (Red 28 Lake), CI 15850 (Red 7 Lake), Mica, CI 73360 (Red 30 Lake), CI 19140 (Yellow 5 Lake), CI 12085 (Red 36), CI 15850 (Red 6), CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 15985 (Yellow 6 Lake), CI 17200 (Red 33 Lake), CI 42090 (Blue 1 Lake), CI 45380 (Red 22 Lake), CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499 (Iron Oxides), CI 75470 (Carmine), CI 77163 (Bismuth Oxychloride), CI 77742 (Manganese Violet)]. 13BML001-1

Personally, this isn’t the best lippie out there, but if you’re looking for something moderately cheap and will last a long time on your lips, this will work. I would go get myself another shade, but I’m currently saving up for some high-end foundations that I have my eye on, so not yet. The next shade I’d want is probably Nude-ist or Personne Ne Rouge.¬†

RRP: 39.80 (at Watsons)

[Review] Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Waterproof Mascara

Hello my awesomesauces!

I have another Bourjois product to review today, so let’s get to it! To be perfectly honest, I have never picked up a Bourjois mascara before, simply because I never noticed them while I was busy ogling their foundations, blushes and lipsticks.

And now I’m just here thinking how could I have not noticed such an eye-catching, sleek, futuristic¬†,and classy packaging like that?

This is the Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Waterproof Mascara (and yes, second with an “e”, just cause the French are so sexy that way!)

Optimized-Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara Review (3)

Product Description: The product claims to have immediate coating upon application, a 16 our hold, and is easy to remove, despite being a waterproof mascara. It also claims to give lashes instant 360¬į volume while promising to be clump free.

The secret behind their claims?

Bourjois Mascara Brush Wand

The¬†unique brush with spherical bristles to wrap every lash with perfect volume. Now that’s a first isn’t it? The focus of the formula is va va voom volume, which we be viewing¬†in a bit ūüôā

PS: The tube contains 12 ml of product, just in case you needed that info. ūüėÄ

Optimized-Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara Review (1)

Ingredients: Ethyl Acetate, Isopropyl Myristate, Parfum (Fragrance), Panthenol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Exyl Cinnamal.

Optimized-Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara Review (4)

Personal Thoughts: The mascara applies on rather smoothly, with no clumping, as promised. In terms of volume, as you can see, one layer of the mascara gives a slight volume, which looks very natural. No one will even know you have mascara on! But if you’re looking for BIG BIG lashes, you may want to try something else. I like this mascara for every day use, ans considering that its waterproof, it’s the kind that will last you all day.

I’ve used this for a maximum of 12 hours, and it held up just fine. I know it promises 16 hours, but really, when does one wear mascara for 16 hours? ūüôā

Optimized-Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara Review (2)

Long story short, this is the kind of mascara that you will want to have in your makeup bag for daily use if you’re the kind of girl who likes natural looking makeup. The packaging¬†looks super posh, that’s for one, and secondly, the mascara itself gives you that natural but better vibe. However,for ¬†the price of MYR 49.90 is a bit of a spend I would say, since most mascaras locally usually retail from MYR20 -MYR40 generally, so I would ask you to give this a swatch first before purchasing it.

[Review] Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream & 123 Perfect CC Eye Cream

Haroo awesomesauces!

If you recall my Instagram post a couple of days ago, I got¬†some Bourjois Paris¬†products and here is the review that you’ve been eagerly¬†waiting for! (or so I hope lol!)

You girls¬†know know much I love Bourjois, I absolutely love love love their foundations, and the Healthy Mix Serum has become my ultimate go to foundation ever since I’ve used them. Apart from their foundies, I also like the Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipsticks which has become a staple in my makeup bag these days. I really should review the foundations and lipsticks at some point. Ah well, that’s a story for another day.

¬†Today, I’ve got two items to talk about, which are the Bourjois Paris 123 Perfect CC Cream and the Bourjois Paris 123 Perfect CC ¬†Eye Cream.

Say hello to the star of today’s post!

Optimized-Bourjois CC Cream Eye Cream Review (5)

Now I need to put this out there, I’ve never been a big fan of BB creams, CC creams or whatever alphabet is available currently, and I usually prefer tinted moisturizers, or straight up foundations. I think I only own 2 BB creams, and one CC cream, all of which were either gifts or items sent for review considerations. I’m not sure why I stay away from these products, but I have a feeling its due to the whole skin care in my makeup idea that confuses me. ¬†For more thoughts & discussions on the matter, you can refer to Paris’s opinion here. ¬†http://www.mywomenstuff.com/2014/01/makeup-in-skincare/

The CC Eye Cream and CC Cream are apparently the latest additions to the Bourjois complexion range, and I recall they have been in the market for a fair few months now. They are a combination of skin care & makeup which promises 100% corrected complexion & hydrated skin throughout the day.

Optimized-Bourjois CC Cream Eye Cream Review (3)

The  CC Cream comes in a squeeze tube which contains 30 ml of product. I like the squeeze tube, but I did find that a little product tends to leak out when the tube is place horizontally, which is why I now keep it upside down  in my vanity. The product is rather runny which would explain the minor leakage.

The product comes in 4 shades, and the one I have today is in Num 33, Rose Beige which is a perfect shade for me. I love the fact that most of Bourjois face products come in the perfect shade for tanned skin like mine. Most drugstore products tend to forget the darker girl on the street :/

Bourjois 123 CC  Cream Review

Product Description:  The CC Cream formula contains 3 new corrective pigments which are:

  • Apricot¬†pigments for anti-fatigue
  • Green pigments for anti-redness
  • White¬†pigments for anti-dark spots & pigmentation.

These ultra fine coloured pigments blend together into the skin, hiding blemishes and refining skin texture. Each shade has been developed with a shade of pink for a radiant make up result. The CC Cream also pampers the skin with its lightweight, oil free formula that suits all skin types.

  • The CC Cream contains¬†SPF 15 that protects against UV-B rays.
  • It also contains White Tea Extract with energizing properties for a more radiant skin & a healthy glow.
  • Plus, a low opacifying powder content¬†for a more radiant result and perfect blending

Personal Thoughts:¬†I apply the CC Cream with my Zoeva Silk Finish Brush, and since the texture is quite runny, it is easy to blend out. I wear it alone mostly, and I find that it can act as a base¬†to your foundation as well.¬†It gives your complexion a beautiful, glowing¬†finish that looks amazing. It dries dewy, which is a major plus point. It really is lightweight, but provides massive¬†coverage for a CC Cream! Definitely medium to almost high coverage. The shade of pink in the product definitely provides an enhanced glow, but for yellow toned skin, make sure you colour match yourself to ensure the product doesn’t look too peachy on your skin. The CC cream also lasts quite a while in our Malaysian weather, say 5-6 hours. The product suits all skin types since its oil free, and dry skinned ladies can benefit from the hydrating properties. I certainly did! ūüôā

One thing I should remind you girls, that makeup is never skin care 100%, so do apply your skin care as per usual and make sure to follow-up with sunscreen. Personally, despite any makeup containing SPF and skin care properties, I will always make sure I have proper sunscreen and skin care on.

CC Cream Ingredients:  Aqua (Water),Caprylyl Methicone,Dimethicone,Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate,Methyl Trimethicone,Peg-10 Dimethicone,Propanediol,Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate,Saccharide Isomerate,Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer,Disteardimonium Hectorite,Phenoxyethanol,Sodium Chloride,Bis-Peg/Ppg-14/14 Dimethicone,Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate,Parfum (Fragrance),Propylene Carbonate,Tocopheryl Acetate,Ethylhexylglycerin,Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract,Panthenol,Silica,Aluminum Hydroxide,Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone,Lysolecithin,Citric Acid,Sodium Citrate,Amyl Cinnamal,Bht,Peg/Ppg-18/18 Dimethicone,Triethoxycaprylylsilane,Pantolactone,Phenethyl Alcohol,Tocopherol,Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate. [+/- (May Contain):Ci 77891 (Titanium Dioxide),Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499 (Iron Oxides),Mica,Ci 77007 (Ultramarines),Ci 77288 (Chromium Oxide Greens)]

Optimized-Bourjois CC Cream Eye Cream Review (4)

The second item on the post today is the CC Eye Cream which comes in a tiny pencil like packaging with 1.5 ml of product. The tip is made of flexible silicone and makes application a breeze, plus hygienic too! The silicone tip actually ensures you don’t drag or catch onto the delicate under eye area while applying the product.

The CC Eye Cream comes in 3 shades, and the one I have is in num 22, Light Beige. Shade wise, num 22 is a little too light on me, and I would think that num 23 is too dark. Seems that I am somewhere in between those shades. #tannedskinproblems

Bourjois 123 CC  Eye Cream Review

Product Description: An innovative and multi-action treatment concealer. It conceals, protects, brightens, and hydrates even the most sensitive eye area. It claims a refreshed, radiant and illuminating result. Similar to the CC Cream, it also promises 24 hours hydration, SPF 15, plus a lightweight texture. Its multi action formula, it conceals imperfections and dark circles, smooths wrinkles & fine lines, and fades out puffiness. The CC Eye Cream protect the fragile skin of the eye contour while correcting dark circles under the eyes. Suitable for all eyes, even sensitive eyes & contact lens wearers.

Personal Thoughts: As mentioned the product is a little too light on my skin, but after blending it doesn’t look too fair. After application, dark circles and eye bags doesn’t look so prominent anymore. Coverage is light to medium, and the texture dries dewy. It lasts about 6-7 hours, ¬†but I have a bad habit of constantly rubbing my eyes, so it creases on me. For you without the habit, I’m sure it will be fine ūüôā¬†

CC Eye Cream Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Dimethicone, Caprylyl Methicone, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Peg-10 Dimethicone, Propanediol, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Saccharide Isomerate, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Sodium Potassium Aluminum Silicate, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Chloride, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Bis-Peg/Ppg-14/14 Dimethicone, Propylene Carbonate, Silica, Parfum (Fragrance), Tocopheryl Acetate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Aluminum Hydroxide, Panthenol, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Lysolecithin, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Bht, Peg/Ppg-18/18 Dimethicone, Amyl Cinnamal, Phenethyl Alcohol, Pantolactone, Tocopherol, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate. [+/- (May Contain): Ci 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499 (Iron Oxides), Mica, Ci 77007 (Ultramarines)]

Swatches of the products:
Optimized-Bourjois CC Cream Eye Cream Review (1)

On me. Left, bare skin, right, CC Cream & CC Eye cream blended.

As you can see, dark circles appears¬†reduced ever so slightly, and my skin looks more even and toned after CC cream application. I think my skin looks great, but not looking too done up. Very natural looking, but better, lol! ¬†Do forgive mah bushy eyebrows ūüôā

Oh and by the way, both products are waterproof, as I found out while trying to get them off. Do use a makeup remover to get all the traces of your skin yeah? I use the Shu Eumura POREfinist Cleansing Oil and follow-up with my Vichy Normaderm Gel Cleanser as a double cleanse.

Scent wise, there isn’t an identifiable scent to the products, just your regular tinted moisturizer scent which doesn’t usually bother most people.

Its Official, Bourjois Is In Malaysia! (Prices & Products)

Haroo awesomesauces!

If you’ve been living under the Malaysian rock, you might have not noticed the recent opening of Bourjois¬†Paris in our very own Sunway Pyramid. Yes, its at Sunway, at that end of the planet. However, don’t fret, they’re looking to open another outlet in the heart of the city asap ‚̧

I just had to drag le boyf in the AM and stop by on the opening day, and boy am I glad I did! 

Some customary pictures of the store for you. Its located near Cotton On & The Executive. Sorry for the blurry pics, this was taken with my old decrepit Samsung ūüėÄ

Some of the products brought in!

Their cream blushes, Velvet Mattes Lip colours, bronzing primers, bronzers and so on are not here yet, but the SA advised me that they will get here in due time. 

PS: Bourjois SA’s are really nice, MAC can learn a thing or two from them.
