Bourjois CC Cream, CC Concealer and 24 Hour Cream Eyeshadow Review; Before and After Pics


It's only January but Bourjois is already bowling me over for Twenty Fourteen - headed our way is one of the loveliest CC creams to hit our shores, with a matching concealer for good measure.
123 Perfect CC Cream is a light, fluid and oil-free cream that provides a surprising amount of coverage without looking or feeling heavy in the slightest - I think my before and after shots speak for themselves.

 I am amazed with how it's tackled my post Christmas blemishes and redness and livened up my mid winter face - plus, it wears really well and feels nice and hydrating on the skin throughout the day.

The matching concealer, €10.49, is also lovely and light reflecting and the two work great together, but the CC cream's the star. Available in three shades, it's brilliantly priced at €13.99 and comes with SPF 15, to boot.

I'm wearing them here with the brand's recently launched 24 Hour Cream shadow in Kaki Chéri, a pretty, antiquey olivey/gold shade that I've fallen for and fallen for hard.

Despite comparisons, these are really nothing at all like Chanel's Illusion D'Ombre shadows or the LancĂ´me lovelies I showed you here; those have a definite mousse texture which is springy to the touch, whereas these are cream-to-powder and have lots more slip - at least on application, but they quickly dry down.

Where they are similar is in the lovely shimmer packed shades - these have less pigmentation than the other brands I've mentioned, but are no less lovely in their more understated ways. For a bit of subtle, daytime appropriate sparkle, these babies have your back.

Look for the CC cream and concealer from January 23rd (these were press samples); the shadows, €8.99, are on stands now.
