Bourjois Summer 2013: Bravo!

Don'tcha just love a brand with not only a quality, affordable product line, but heritage and a great back story, too? 

Bourjois 150th anniversary candle

Celebrating their 150th anniversary this year, Bourjois certainly tick all of these boxes and more. This is the brand that gave the world the first baked powder blush, and a century and half later, they're still ahead of the pack.

Bourjois Bronzing Products Summer 2013

This summer we're seeing a particularly bumper crop from Bourjois with incredibly strong offerings for lips, eyes and cheeks. The Summer on the Riviera range also includes some innovative tanning products like a bronzing primer, €13.99, that looks to me like a very passable dupe for Chanel’s cream bronzing base, Soleil Tan de Chanel. I sneak peeked it here

Other tanning products include a BB Bronzing Cream, also €13.99, and gigantic powder bronzer, which is €9.99.

Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon

Chunky lip crayons are having a moment and Bourjois' offerings are very well priced at €10.99 - I'm looking forward to seeing how they stack up against similar products, including Clinique's iconic Chubby Sticks.

Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick

The Rouge Shine Edition lipsticks are also fabulous and I've already reviewed those here - they're colour coded to co-ordinate with one of the four new summery nail polish shades (€7.99).

Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Holidays Mascara

Since taking up swimming at lunchtime I am increasingly aware of how rare it is to find a really great waterproof mascara. I have high hopes from the Volume Glamour Max Holidays range, limited edition mascaras with travel sized packaging but which contain 6ml of product. Launching in Boots this month for €7.99, these come in the shades Ultra Black, Electric Blue, Green Lagoon and Purple Mania.

Bourjois Cream Blushers

But perhaps the most exciting of all are the new cream blushers which on paper, sound rather similar to a much higher-end offering that's coming soon, from sister brand Chanel. Priced at €10.49 and launching next month, these are absolute stunners and you'll be seeing more from them on the blog soon!

Maybe you've tried some of these already, or is anything catching your eye?

I have to confess I always forget about bourjois, I used to consider them one of the dearer brands but they really aren't as expensive as I thought. That mascara is on my wishlist now, and I really love the look of the cream blusher, some gorgeous wearable shades there.

Didn't realise how much I loved Bourjois until I was organising my makeup and saw I had loads of their stuff. There is some really exciting things coming from them lately.

I just adore Hot Pink and Orange lipstick--those are the only colors I wear right now! I am not sure I can get bonjours here, but I would love to get my hands on some of them. Also, do you like the new Boots waterproof mascaras? I'll get some next time I'm at the airport if you think they work--I barely wear mascara because I rub it off unless it's waterproof.
