Bourjois Touche Healthy Mix Brush Concealer - Review 

I got this product for around £8 from Boots. At first I liked the look 0f the concealer and assumed it would be good from looking at my other Bourjois purchases. The container is small and easy to fit in your purse. However, I found that it didn't last very long at all and wasn't good value for the money. The coverage was thin and took a lot to get it how I wanted it to look. I would recommend this product to people with already a very good complexion and perhaps just some dark circles but for people with more blemishes I suggest you try another concealer! I much prefer my £1.99 concealer from the Collection 2000! It has a great coverage and is perfect for hiding any blemishes in no time at all! 
My cheap and cheerful alternative.

My Top 3 Daily Make-Up Essentials!

1. Bourjois Bio Detox Organic Foundation

For me, this is a must! I have quite oily skin and this thick foundation has excellent matte coverage. It can be found at Asos and Lloyds Pharamacy for £10. I think this is reasonable as you get a decent amount in this classy glass bottle and it seems to last forever! I would definitely reccomend you try this, or for more combination/normal skin types maybe try the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation. 


2. Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Colour (Soft Coral) 

Bobbi Brown lipsticks are to die for! The soft texture and good quality of the lipstick is the best I can find and the 'soft coral' colour, which is my favourite, really adds some life to my rather pale complexion without looking too over the top. However, this is around £18 from shops like Selfridges. This might seem a bit steep but it is one of them lipsticks that's worth the investment! 

3. Rimmel Silky Loose Powder (Translucent

As I said, I have quite oily skin and using this throughout the day helps reduce shine A LOT! This is my savior and I only just picked it up recently and wish I had done sooner! It is only £7.19 from Superdrug at the moment and a must have item for every girl.
