In December I always pop into my local Boots store on numerous occasions as it's my 'Birthday month' and you get double points on anything (YEY!) I picked up this new foundation from Bourjois and it was on offer for £7.99 which is cheap as chips compared to higher end foundations so I thought I may as well try it out.
a brief description from the Bourjois website: "Happy Light foundation gives a luminous and flawless complexion in any light. It's translucent pigments correct without masking giving your complexion a flawless radiance. It's supple texture glides smoothly onto the skin for a flawless complexion with no caking. RESULT: complexion is left luminous and flawless for 16 hours* in any light with an ultra-natural finish"
WOW! Doesn't that sound incredible?! After trying this new product out over the past month it has become a staple in my everyday makeup bag and also used it on a couple of clients when doing their makeup over the Christmas period to give them a gorgeous glow for their Christmas staff night out.
I have quite oily skin so I was a little bit skeptical about buying this as it gives a dewy glow (something us oily skinned girls should stay away from) but it isn't one of those 'over the top disco ball' glows, it gives a nice sheen without making the skin look any oilier and looks very natural. I use this during the day as it's not heavy or cakey and it's really easy to just apply in seconds with a brush or my amazing BeautyBlender sponge then set with some powder. I personally wouldn't use this for an evening/night out as I prefer full coverage for the night and a matte finish so I don't look shiny in pictures but I swear by it for the day time.
I think I will pick up a few more shades (when the 3 for 2 offer is on obviously!) and keep them in my kit as some of my clients have loved the look of their skin when I've used this on them.
Thumbs up BOURJOIS!
