I pulled out my Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation today, since I'm wanting to film a review for it soon. I like the medium coverage and the lovely natural sheen finish. It stayed looking great all day and into the night too. The shade #53 is pretty good on me but perhaps a smidgen too yellow/dark (this is as pale as I get) so I'm wondering if the #52 is a better fit or if it's too pale for me. I applied the MAC Face & Body with the same foundation brush in the highlight areas just to bring the shade down a notch.
I do really like the shades of the new Coral Colours eyeshadow palette. I can see that the softness and chalkiness of the powder would make you go through it very quickly, but at less than $10, who cares? The shades are nice and neutral- even the shades that look shimmery in the palette and on a finger swatch blend out to something not shimmery. They have enough colour payoff to keep me happy with surprising non-existent fall-out, and blend OK. Buttery or creamy they are not, but it's an OK quad. Will play with it more to see how I like the darker shades on the lid and keep you posted. I'm thinking though that for that amount of money, a Maybelline (or Sleek, Nyx, Milani, Jordana or 88 palette ) would be a better value.
Lastly, I'm absolutely love love loving the Dior lipliner I picked up recently- a gorgeous nude, and the Loreal Nude lipstick is a perfect everyday neutral that you can easily apply without the need for a mirror. The Chi Chi lipgloss feels quite slippery (rather than tacky) so without looking at the ingredients, I'm thinking it's more of an oil / petrolatum base, and not particularly long-lasting, but the residue keeps my lips from feeling too dry for hours, way after the colour has worn off.
Hope you're having a beautiful, easy weekend wherever you may be, and a special shout-out to my fellow West Australians for Western Australia Day Public Holiday tomorrow (our first ever- to replace Foundation Day). May you relax, enjoy and celebrate how fortunate we are to be West Aussie!
