Having been stuck using the same products day in day out it was time for a much needed make up update and seeing as the weather has been so warm and sunny recently, it seemed like the perfect excuse to introduce some pretty pinks into my make up routine. Enter Zelens the blush and Bourjois rouge edition aqua laques:
Pretty in pink with Zelens and Bourjois
As I've gotten older and more sleep deprived I've come to appreciate the power of a good blush and being Zelens it comes with a whole host of skincare benefits too. There's baobab to increase moisture as well as antioxidants to help protect against environmental damage. The blush itself is the most gorgeous rose pink shade and swept onto the cheeks it gives a lovely pop of colour with just a hint of shimmer to help brighten and awaken the whole complexion. The packaging is gorgeous too, silver throughout with a mirror and magnetic clasp which closes with a satisfying click. Definitely a luxury purchase but one that is a joy to use and will fit in with any make up routine.
Following on from the original velvets Bourjois have recently launched their new Rouge edition aqua laques and although I liked the original these are so more up my street. Pigmented and glossy the gel formula applies to give a beautiful shine on the lips. Lasting power is about 2 hours but as the gloss fades it leaves behind a longer lasting stain so you still have some colour throughout the day. I always look for a moisturising formula and thanks to the high water content the new aqua laques don't disappoint. Of the 3 that I own 01 Appechissant is my favourite (and the most versatile) but for a night out 07 Fuchsia perche is lovely too.
