Bourjois City Radiance Foundation Review - My Thoughts

Hello Beauties,

Today I thought I would give my thoughts on this foundation by bourjois it's the city radiance foundation.

I have had this foundation in my collection for quite awhile and want to start using the make up that I have before they go out of date and thought I would give this a go since I hadn't used it in awhile . 

I really like the feel of this foundation it feels nice and creamy on your skin I would say it's a medium coverage foundation which is good enough for me to use daily if I want too . 

When you use this foundation your skin feels really luminous and hydrated which I love maybe it's not a great foundation if you have oily skin but there are ways around it like powdering where you get oily and making the foundation more matte for me personally I love the luminosity of it . 

Boots website says this foundation gives you a light to medium coverage on me personally I would say it's definitely more medium it doesn't feel light at all its definitely medium . 

Here is what Boots Website have to say about Bourjois City Radiance Foundation 

Product details

Bourjois' City Radiance foundation

The ultimate product for the city girl. 
Our City Radiance foundation is a real multi-tasker, giving you a fresh, luminous complexion as well as a protective barrier against pollution. With SPF 30 too, this luminizing foundation couldn’t be any better for your skin.

How do we do this? Available in 6 shades, our City Radiance foundation contains a unique formula which reduces the presence of carbon particles on the skin, creating an anti-pollution screen to help keep your skin protected from the downsides of city life. This, combined with our nourishing formula which keeps skin hydrated for 24 hours helps to give you a fresh and luminous complexion as well as a gorgeous light to medium coverage foundation. We have also infused SPF 30 into the formula to help keep your skin protected from sun damage, meaning you can protect your skin from all the elements with Bourjois City Radiance foundation. Add some joie to vivre to city life.
Our City Radiance foundation:
  • Reduces the presence of carbon particles on the skin to create an anti-pollution screen on your skin
  • Is infused with SPF 30 to help protect your skin from sun damage
  • Uses a nourishing formula that keeps your skin moisturised for 24 hours

Top Tip:
A little bit goes a long way - start at the centre of your face and blend outwards.

I really do like the fact that it has a good SPF in the foundation SPF 30  a lot of people may not like this especially if they take a lot of photographs for Instagram or just in general as it will give a white cast but I really don't mind it . 

This is what the foundation looks like on and I an wearing the lightest shade in 01 ivory rose because I am so fair you can see the natural glow that it gives especially around my cheek area the luminosity of the foundation is really prominent 

Like I said earlier I did buy this awhile ago I hope by now that they would have released more then 6 shades it's alright for people like me who are very fair but women with darker skin tones are really going to struggle to find a perfect match. 

I completely agree your skin does feel very nourished and hydrated with this foundation I love how it feels on my skin. 

I really do like this foundation and have been enjoying using it, if you can get your shade I would definitely recommend you try it if you haven't already if you have please let me know what your thoughts are on this foundation I would love to know . 

Thanks for reading as always

Skincare - Review On L'OREAL Revitalift Magic Blur Finishing Cream

Hello Beauties,

Hope your all well and have had an amazing weekend ….

I don't normally write about skincare but this L'OREAL Revitalift Magic Blur has impressed me that much that I thought I would give you my thoughts on it .

I have had this for so long I bought it with the matching moisturiser and I loved the moisturiser I definitely need to pick that up again when I have finished the moisturisers I am using at the moment . 

When I first used this Magic Blur I really didn't like it at all but I used it all over my face rather then on specific features that I am now using it on  . 

I think this product works best for me on my pores I have quite enlarged pores on my nose and on my cheek area so I have been using it on these areas and it just works so well once I have used this product you can barely see my pores 

I only started using this product about a month ago because I ran out of my primer and I had a few products in my collection that I wanted to use up before I bought anything new . 

This product is a finishing cream rather then a primer but for me it definitely works best on my pores so if you do have enlarged pores It is a product that I would recommend . 

L'OREAL Revitalift Magic Blur is targeted for the more mature woman like myself but that doesn't mean a woman in her twenties shouldn't use it if she feels like she could do with the help on her pores it's also a product for fine lines and wrinkles it blurs the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and pores according to boots website . 

I can't speak for it blurring fine lines and wrinkles because I haven't been using it for that but it certainly does the job for blurring the appearance of enlarged pores . 

I will use it on some of the fine lines that I have and give a more updated review when I have finished this product . 

This is what the L'OREAL Website claims that the L'OREAL Revitalift Magic Blur Finishing Cream Does . 


Instant Skin Smoother. Instantly blurs wrinkles, pores and imperfections. Look younger in seconds.
Our 1st skin transforming finishing cream infused with blurring polymers. Enriched with Opti-Blur technology, Magic Blur diffuses light on the skin for an instant blurring effect.
The cashmere soft texture seamlessly melts in. Your skin looks smoother and more even, as if transformed.
Visible results
In seconds, the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pores and imperfections are blurred. Your skin looks younger. Your complexion appears more radiant and even.
I do think this product is worth the money it's only £6.50 I'm not sure if boots still sell it anymore I think superdrug do though and you can also buy it online . Superdrug do really good offers where you buy 1 and get half off the other product so I am going to wait and see if they have something like that when I need to re-purchase . 
Thanks for reading as always means so much to me

Thoughts On Mac Soft and Gentle Highlighter and Dupes

Hello Beauties,

Today I thought I would give you my thoughts on products I have had in my collection awhile lets start with the first MAC Product that I ever bought and that's the cult classic that everyone has bought at sometime or another and it's the soft and gentle highlighter .

Since I have bought my soft and gentle highlight they have changed the packaging and I have to say I much prefer the new packaging to the way this older packaging looks . 

The new packaging looks so much sleeker I'm not too sure whether they changed the formula as well when they changed the packaging I know some companies do that if you know the answer to that question please just leave me a comment down below.

Review On Primark PS Pure Blender & PS Primer Water - My Honst Opinions On These Products

Hello Beauties ,

This is another one of those blog posts that I wanted to do weeks ago but I keep thinking of other things to do I definitely have to start writing down my ideas in my planner (after all Andrea you did buy it for a reason ) Honestly it's just been gathering dust ….

Okay so lets talk about the beauty blenders first and guys it pains me to say this if you have been reading my blog for awhile you will know how much I love Primark's beauty line which is called PS and now they have brought out a lot of luxe items in this line and called it PS Pure and although I haven't tried much I have tried a few things and have really enjoyed using them especially the highlighter in the shade Arctic Ice it B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L So when I saw these really cute beauty blenders I wanted to try them but honestly my lovelies I don't say this a lot but save your £2 and pass on them and put that money towards a real techniques beauty blender because they are so good …

I hated these beauty blenders so much and here is why ….

First Impressions Eyeshadow Palettes I Can't Wait to Try

Hello Beauties,

Today I thought I would talk to you all about 4 eyeshadow palettes I have had for awhile but haven't got around to using yet just because I have so many in my collection and I am completely obsessed with eyeshadow palettes.

I'll start by talking about this pretty little palette the magical one by pretty little palettes I knew nothing of this brand until I saw a live video on my facebook and knew I had to have this palette it is so beautiful .

Just look at that packaging it i'm getting serious unicorn vibes of the front of this packaging and the eyeshadows inside the palette just looks so stunning and nothing like the rest of the eyeshadows in my collection

Why I No Longer Order From Kylie Cosmetics - No Shade

Hello Beauties,

Today I thought I would talk about why I no longer order from Kylie Cosmetics I will be honest compared to some of the make up I have in my collection high end to drug store and I have a lot I just think for the price Kylie Cosmetics is overrated .
I think your paying for the person behind the brand rather then the actually quality of the cosmetics.

I realise not everyone is going to agree with me on this subject and that's fair enough I have tried quite a few different products from the Kylie Cosmetics range so I do feel like I can have a discussion and give my opinion on the products that I have bought

Since Kylie Jenner launched her website and her brand I have bought quite a few products I got both the bronze eye shadow palette and the burgundy palette a handful of lipsticks and yes the lipsticks are good especially the nude shades such as Posie K , Exposed and all the others she brought out I have to say though they are no better then what you could pick up from the drugstore .

If you live in the UK NYX do some great alternatives to Kylie's lipsticks at a fraction of the price for instance NYX Lip Lingerie a lot of those lipsticks are very similar to Kylies nude collection of lipsticks which are £7 where as Kylie's are $17 which I know doesn't seem that much but if you live in the UK you have to account for customs tax more about that later though.

In my make up collection I really don't have much left from the Kylie Brand at all and to be honest I am thinking of maybe selling this Burgundy eye shadow palette it's barely been used I think once I twice and I just think someone may benefit from it more that doesn't have a collection as big as mine .
