Smoky Flower Perfection FOTD

Today is my first time trying the Bourjois Flower Perfection foundation. Described as a "Youth Extension" makeup that provides a matte, full coverage, I found this applied really easily using a Beauty Blender sponge to give a really flawless finish. I found the shade #53 a teeny bit on the pink side, but definitely workable. With one layer I could ever so slightly see freckles and dark spots, but felt I need not apply a second layer. So definitely a thumbs up for coverage, and I did powder it down with a loose finishing powder, but the finish was pretty matte on its own. Interested in seeing how long til first touch up and how it looks at the end of the day.

I also used the B by Bloom Quick Fix Concealer Kit in Light- Medium for the first time today under my eyes. I used the yellow shade first to help correct and brighten, followed by a preacher shade over top. I used the brush it comes with to apply it to the desired area, and then my finger to pat it in. Looks good at application. Will be interesting to see how long it lasts- a definite issue I have with concealers!

Loving the more dramatic smoky eye for a change- have been stuck in a light lid, darker crease neutral rut for a while. Thanks for sticking with me, ad wishing you a beautiful day whenever you may be.

  1. Very cute look! I picked up the bourjois healthy mix gel foundation the other day. seems to work best on me with a primer and applied with the beauty blender (I use the purple manicare ones.
    I'll be really interested to hear about the Bloom concealers. I usually find the products way over-priced for their effectiveness.
