I was out doing some Christmas shopping a few days ago when I saw this fantastic deal. I was meaning to pick up some beauty bits for my mum as a present, so I picked her up a couple of things and treated myself to the free gift that came with it!
There’s four full sized products in the box-a lipstick, nail polish, mascara and smokey eye kit. While I did decide to keep this for myself, it would also make a fab Christmas present for a friend as it comes in a lovely little box.
I’ve heard lots of good things about the Bourjois mascaras, so I was really excited to try this out. The brush is larger than I typically go for, but I do find these brushes the best for adding volume and length. When I applied this I did find it really messy, the brush is just way too big for my lashes! It did give some nice volume and length, but nowhere near as good as other mascaras I’ve tried.
The lipstick comes in the shade Beige Trench, and it’s such a perfect warm pinky nude. As you can see it’s very pigmented and claims to have really good lasting power, which is great! My only issue is that on my lips it seems to have a grey tinge to it which isn’t very flattering, if it was a warmer brown colour I think it would suit me better.
The nail polish shade included in the box is a near perfect match to the lipstick and it’s called Beige Glamour. It only took me two coats for a fully opaque finish and I really love the shade, it doesn’t look fully nude on the nails, it leans more towards a pinky brown.
Finally is a smokey eye shadow trio in Gris Party. I don’t typically use grey shades for eye shadow, so I’m excited to give this a go on my next night out! As you can see the shades are super pigmented and they blend really well together, so I’m sure they’ll make the perfect smokey eye!
I’m so impressed with this set of products, and seeing as you only have to spend £15 to get your hands on them, it’s such a bargain! If you haven’t already, definitely try to get your hands on it, I can promise you won’t regret it.
