TOP 5 Summer Picks From Bourjois - Sandra, The Black Pearl Blog


Hi everyone. My name is Sandra and I blog over at The Black Pearl Blog. I usually write about beauty, but I like to add a variety of posts, from home decor to healthy eating. When Laura asked me to guest post on her blog, I knew exactly what to write about - my favourite high street makeup brand - Bourjois. I absolutely love their products and they keep releasing new gems, making me a happy bunny :) Today, I wanted to share my top 5 summer products from this fantastic (and affordable) brand.

I don't like using heavy bases in summer, so I've been reaching for the Healthy Mix Serum Foundation (£10.99) quite often. It feels very light and looks natural on my skin. It gives light to medium coverage and a dewy finish. If you want to keep your complexion matte, you can dust your face with a little bit of your favourite powder. It isn't the cheapest drug store foundation, but it is definitely worth the price tag and it is very similar to Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua. 

If you are not bored of lip crayons yet, you will love these! The Color Boost Lip Crayons are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! They give a super glossy finish and add the perfect amount of colour to the lips. They are available in four shades, all vibrant and summer appropriate. They cost £7.99 each, but you can pick them up on offer in Boots.

Cream blushers are perfect for summer and the reformulated Little Round Pots (£7.99) stole my heart. The "cream to powder" formula is easy to apply and gives a lovely, natural looking finish. I dab them onto my cheeks with my fingers and I am ready to go.

The last two Bourjois products I wanted to mention are from their bronzing range. The Bronzing Primer (£9.99) is perfect for adding a bit of colour to your face and smoothing the complexion. It is a light mousse, it let's your skin breathe and.... it smells like chocolate! You can use it as a base, or as a cream bronzer. If you prefer powders, the Maxi Delight Bronzer (£8.99) could be a better option for you! It adds a gorgeous bronzed glow with a bit of gold shimmer and I love applying it onto my décolletage and shoulders.

I hope you enjoyed this post and got some Summer makeup recommendations.  If you haven't tried Bourjois products yet, I would definitely recommend checking them out. Their products are always on offer in Boots and Superdrug and they are worth every single penny! I reviewed all the products mentioned in this post on my blog and you can read my reviews here.
