Okay so been a bit MIA for the last fortnight... A combination of a week's holiday visiting family in Derbyshire, an EPIC course of antibiotics which have left me feeling totally rotten and a dodgy DSLR battery has kind of made blogging very difficult. However, until I can replace my Nikon battery (which should be any day now) I have attempted to resurrect my old, dinky little Coolpix in order to bring you a new post today! Once again drugstore heavyweight brand Bourjois have come out with more fantastic, affordable new products and one of those are their version of the chubby lip crayon, the Color Boost Glossy Finish, Hydrating Lip Colour.
The shade I plumped for out of their range of 4 was (true to form on my part) Peach on the Beach. I have a serious peach fetish going on this season, what can I say? Bourjois describe their product as a hydrating, glossy lip colour that is long lasting as well as waterproof.
"A new generation formula that provides a bare lips sensation thanks to its sensory, light and non-sticky texture. With a silk extract formula, Color Boost ensures comfort and hydration for 10 hours. Plus, it has SPF 15 and Waterproof colour! Available in 4 bold shades"
I am a massive fan of the Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stains so I kind of knew I would like this product too, especially as Bourjois are fast becoming my drugstore brand of choice. The product is so comfortable to wear and easy to apply. It feels slightly silkier on the lips than the Revlon version and really does seem to last well. It lasts through an afternoon on me with ease with minimal transfer. I haven't done a thorough waterproof test with it but I'm guessing it would put up a good fight.
I really like the colour of this lipstick. It pulls more pink on the lips than it appears from the stick and with a fairly sheer, but buildable, opacity which I like. It's slightly deeper than my MAC Sweet and Sour (post Here) and not as orange based as my Sleek Peaches and Cream (post Here) and at £7.99 I think it's great value as I don't have to constantly reapply it.
It seems that Bourjois can do no wrong for me at the moment. I've also been playing with their Bronzing BB Cream and just got my hands on their Bronzing Primer so I'm sure you'll be hearing more Bourjois from me very soon. They've really impressed me with a lot of the things they have released this year and I look forward to seeing what else they have up their sleeved for the rest of 2013!
Do you go potty for peach?? What are your Bourjois favourites?? What drugstore products can't you live without??
