BOURJOIS AUTUMN 2016 MAKEUP RELEASE HIGHLIGHTS

Bourjois autumn 2016 collection

Bourjois always do really unique and different seasonal collections that don’t always stick to the typically on-trend shades. I wanted to share with you my picks of their autumn makeup releases.

Bourois Palette Les Nudes

First up, let’s look at their incredibly pretty eyeshadow palette. The Bourjois Palette Les Nudes* (£11.99) is Bourjois’ first proper palette and you can pick it up from 28th September. It has a really cool and handy rotating mirror and contains eight shimmery pastel and nude tones.

I love the quality of the shadows in this palette. Each shade has a creamy texture that blends beautifully and they are all highly pigmented. My favourite shade is the fifth from the left as it’s a stunning orange-toned copper that’s perfect for autumn. You can do a really pretty dark smokey eye with this palette, wear each shade on their own or get a bit more playful with colour too.

Bourjois Sculpt Light Strobing Highlighter

Also out on 28th September is Bourjois’ new Sculpt Light Strobing Highlighter* (£11.99). This liquid highlighter comes in one universal shade that adapts to all skin tones. It has a pearlescent finish and looks so pretty dabbed along cheekbones and brow bones.

There are also four new Rouge Edition 12-Hour Lipstick* (£7.99) shades out 28th September, and I am obsessed with shades #45 and #46. The burgandy one is my favourite and will look so good against my pale skin in autumn. These semi-matte lipsticks are really creamy in texture and comfortable to wear (they contain shea butter). They are also extremely pigmented and are long-lasting – not twelve hours for me, but around four before a re-application is needed.

Finally, I’m also loving one of the two new Rouge Edition Velvet Liquid Lipsticks* (£8.99). Shade #18 It’s Redding Men! is a bright tomato red with a hint of pink, that I can’t wait to wear on nights out. The formula is matte and it feels a little bit drying on the lips, but not uncomfortable. This lipstick really does stay put all night and doesn’t start to flake or wear-off in patches – it just gets increasingly more like a stain over time.

Will you be heading out to purchase any of these at the end of the month?
