Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation

I'm pretty fickle when it comes to foundation and always have quite a few on the go partly because my skin colour is always changing and partly because I'm a make up whore and always want to buy more. I picked up shade 51 which is the lightest offering I could find in boots. It's perfect for my skin without any tan as shown above. It smells gorgeous and has a lovely gel formula that glides onto the skin and gives a slightly dewy finish. My favourite thing about this foundation is how long it lasts for it stays intact throughout the day and I only need a small bit of concealer for it to take me into the evening. It's a really lovely high street foundation and I can't really fault it. The pump applicator is perfect in foundations and I think this will now stay solidly in my collection for pale days. It gives really good coverage for me and I only need the smallest amount of foundation for blemishes. I know they've had a little rebrand since my purchase too the radiance reveal healthy mix serum foundation which from reading reviews sounds pretty similar apart from the packaging and hopefully when I repurchase it isn't different from this formula as I love it.

Recent eBay Purchases

I have ALOT of bargains heading my way from the land of eBay that I'll be sharing soon but I just couldn't wait to share these little gems. I'm a little obsessed with this little owl satchel it's absolutely adorable and I can't go anywhere without someone asking where it's from! It's only mini but fits all the daytime essentials and is perfect for the spring! I also broke my sunglasses recently and as I break them far too often I decided to pick up some cheap wayfarer shades to get me through the summer. For only 99p a pair you really can't go wrong. I'd adore a pair of Ray Bans but these are far more purse friendly. I can't wait to share all my other buys on here soon I've seriously got the eBay bug again!

Origins GinZing Brightening Cream Eye Shadow - 06 Coffee Buzz

Origins GinZing Brightening Cream Eyeshadow - £16

I've loved all the skin care I've ever tried from Origins and thought it was about time I gave their make-up offering a go. I wanted a slightly less shimmery version of my beloved on and on bronze from maybelline so picked up this cream shadow on a recent treat spree. This is really silky to touch and a really light weight cream. It blends super well and a little goes a long long way. Coffee buzz is a soft brown shade that is perfect for everyday wear. The colour is really matt in tone but is also pretty luminous so which really brightens up the eye. I really love the product it's a lovely cream shadow with good wear time it doesn't crease at all and creates the perfect base for a more dramatic look. This is definitely a bit of a treat considering how good Maybelline's eye tattoos are for just £5 but it's a lovely treat. The sleek glass pot with simple silver lid looks really lovely on my dresser. I really want to try their 'Pinch Your Cheeks' blush next :) Has anyone else tried any Origins Make-Up I'd love to read any reviews?
