Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick Happy Nude Year Swatch Review Lipstick Monday

To kick start Lipstick Monday in 2016, what better shade than Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in shade 09 Happy Nude Year?! I bought this shade a few weeks ago and wore it for the first time recently.

I have reviewed a couple of these velvet matte lipsticks and I am always impressed with the finish.  As previously mentioned, the colour payoff is exceptional – the colour translates very well on application.  I also love how moisturising this shade is for a matte finish.

Happy Nude Year is a lovely pink shade that is very easy to carry off.  A nude lip can be one of the hardest colours to get just right as a shade too dark or light can be very unflattering.  This shade however is very soft and gives a lovely bright finish.  I imagine this pretty shade would suit a wide range of skin tones.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick is widely available and is priced at £8.99.  It is the perfect shade for adding to your collection to give your face a fresh look this January. And the best bit? For such a lovely colour and finish it won’t break the bank!

Happy New Year to all my readers and followers.  Lets hope 2016 is filled with lots of happiness.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer – Review

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer - Review

A few months ago I was introduced to the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation.  It’s safe to say I have not looked back since.  I love the way it enhances my complexion without looking too heavy and most of all I love the shade! It really is perfect for me. Check out my foundation review here.

Like the All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, the Radiant Creamy Concealer also had some fantastic reviews so I couldn’t wait to try it out.

I bought my concealer in shade Vanilla. A shade that NARS say has a tiny cast of pink for the pale complexion.  They say this is a creamy concealer with hydrating, multiaction skincare benefits and light diffusing technology to create a softer, smoother complexion. It is free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates.

I apply the concealer by dispensing a small amount onto my hand using the applicator.  I then gently pat a small amount under my eyes, around my nose and lips.  I also use the Beauty Blender Micro Mini to ensure a flawless finish under my eyes.  The formula is easy to blend and simply vanishes as you can see from the images below. The first image shows a swatch on initial application.  The second image shows how the concealer vanishes when blended, and how it has taken some general pinky pigmentation out of the skin.

I am really pleased I bought this concealer.  It works really well with my foundation and does obscure and blur any dark circles or redness on my skin.  It is buildable depending on the level of coverage you need whilst still appearing natural which is a really winner in my books.

The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is widely available from NARS online, department stores and Sephora. It is expensive at £22.00 but I feel for the level of coverage and versatility of the product it is worth the price.
