I've decided to introduce a new series onto my blog today; I've tried a lot of brands so i thought it might be interesting to share with you some of my favourite products I've tried from each brand. The first brand that I'm going to be focusing on is Bourjois. I've only really gotten into Bourjois in the last two years but it has definitely impressed me and some of my favourites from the brand are:

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Frambourjoise
These are really nice lip products especially if you love a bold lip. Frambourjoise has a slight pink undertone to it, it's a really pretty colour and i love wearing it. These have a really nice formula, are easy to apply and even though they have a matte finish they are really moisturising to wear on the lips.

Bourjois Delice De Poudre AKA The Chocolate Bronzer
If i was to recommend just one product from Bourjois it would be this one - their infamous Chocolate bronzer. It's a really lovely bronzer to use - it's matte so it's ideal to use as a contour and also because it's brown-toned it's not muddy looking and actually looks quite natural on. The scent of this is incredible; i wouldn't say it smells like chocolate though, the scent reminds me of being on holiday - it has a really summery type scent.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in Vanilla
This is the older version of the foundation so i don't know how it differs from the newer ones but it is a much loved product in the blogger world. I'd say this has a medium coverage and it covers blemishes and imperfections really well. The consistency of it is quite thin but you can easily build it up if you feel you need more coverage. It blends out easily and sinks into the skin to give a lovely healthy and natural glow.

Bourjois Cream Blush in Nude Velvet
This is the perfect everyday blush; the colour is a light peachy tone, it's really subtle and natural and it compliments all skin tones and goes well with all make up looks. It's a cream blush which normally i don't like so much because i find they can sometimes be quite difficult to blend out but these have a cream to powder formula and it blends out so easy and effortlessly and it's really long lasting too.

Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Orange Punch
These are some of my favourite lip crayons I've ever tried; they are really glossy and moisturising on the lips. Orange is a colour i usually steer away from but this applies quite sheer so i find it's really wearable and i just love it, especially in the spring/summer. I also have the shade 'Red Sunrise' in the lip crayon and it's also really nice.

Bourjois Smokey Stories Eyeshadow Quad in Good Nude
I actually own all 8 of these quads and they are all great products but the 'Good Nude' is the one that I've been reaching for the most. They are really good quality with good pigmentation and they blend together really nicely. The fours shades in the quad are the perfect components in creating a smokey eye. I don't rate the glitter shade in the middle or the 'light touch' as Bourjois call it as it doesn't apply very well. The other three shades however compliment each other really nicely and its so easy to create a smokey eye with.

Those are some of my favourite items I've tried from Bourjois and the ones I'd recommend checking out. What are some of your favourite products from Bourjois?
