Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder review, 52 vanille

Hello,

today I would like to review a Healthy Mix powder by Bourjois.

Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder in 52 vanille
The powder contains Asian fruits: Sharon fruit and Yuzu fruit. The first one will smooth and moisturize dry areas of your face and the second one will absorb excess shine. 
                             

This powder is great. Let me explain why. The most amazing thing about this powder is its texture. It is very finely ground and it really provides almost undetectable finish on the skin. The powder blends nice and the makeup looks very natural. My complexion is smooth, pores are less visible. I can honestly say that my skin looks fresh and radiant after application. It doesn't dry out the skin, it doesn't accentuate dry areas. I feel that my skin can breathThe only downside is the colour. I have bought the lightest shade: number 52 vanille but sadly it is too dark. I can only use this powder in the evenings or during foggy or dark days.I can recommend this product to those who are "less pale":).

It has dropped on the floor but you can see the colour better

Bourjois Blush Exclusif self adjusting blusher for healthy glow

Hello,

Product description:
Its formula contains pH reactive pigments to transform your cheeks into a customised pink shade.Its incredibly blendable cream-to-powder formula suits all skin tones for a fresh and gorgeous glow! 
As I have said before I am very pale and a good blusher is very important for me. When I first heard about self adjusting blusher I thought, wow, that must be great!  I thought that the blush by working with my pH will give me the most natural, healthy look. It will self-adjusts into a bespoke pink. 
Well, I don't know how the pH reactive pigments work but when I apply the blusher to my cheeks the colour changes into  pale pink which doesn't look too promising.. I was hoping for a "fresh complexion and made-to-measure healthy glow"...But then maybe this is my "healthy glow":).

Blusher has a creamy thick formula and doesn't blend too easily. I apply it with fingers.
The packaging is small and cute and it comes with a mirror.


I prefer cheek stains definitely.
Greetings,
Joanna

Bourjois Youth Extension Flower Perfection Foundation SPF 15, 51 light vanilla, long lasting good coverage matte finish

Hello,
this is my second favorite foundation. It is almost perfect:). I say almost perfect because it accentuates sometimes dry/peeling spots. Apart from that Flower Perfection offers a great coverage, hides imperfections and blemishes without creating a mask-like effect. The skin is matted but this is not a flat matt finish. Foundation leaves skin dewy, soft to the touch. 

The application process is easy. I apply it with fingers and  it  blends well without leaving streaks. Only small amount is needed to cover the whole face. Using the powder is not necessary.
The staying power is very good and I have oily skin. Foundation has a thick, velvety texture and I prefer using it during cooler months.It has SPF 15.
I recommend it.
Greetings,
Joanna

Bourjois Little Round Pot Blusher, 37 Rose Pompon, light pink delicate blusher


Hello,

today I would like to review a famous Bourjois Little Round Pot Blusher. 
I got this blusher in 37 Rose Pompon (what a cute name). The colour is light pink and very subtle. I have fair complexion and this colour looks quite natural on me but if you opt for a stronger colour I would suggest using another shade. Luckily Bourjois Little Round Pot Blusher is available in a wide range of shades to match all skin tones so I am sure everybody will find something suitable.

The blusher has a mirror and brush included so it is perfect for the handbag and for touch-ups on the go. I use that brush for the application using circular movements. Normally I would choose my special blush brush from Sephora but in this case I prefer this small Bourjois blush. After application my complexion looks healthier, fresher. The blusher is long lasting and hard to believe but it has been around for almost 150 years.


The blusher has an amazing smell of roses.
